Sonja Morgan, the blonde socialite who appears on Bravo's "The Real Housewives of New York", maybe be forced to sell her $6 million Upper East Side town house to pay creditors after filing for consumer bankruptcy in November, according to multiple sources.
Morgan has been locked in a divorce lawsuit against her 80-year-old ex-husband John Adams Morgan, whom she told the New York Post she believes is at least partially responsible for her financial problems. Morgan claims her former husband - a descendant of both famed financier J.P. Morgan and former President John Adams - is refusing to pay her a $3 million lump-sum divorce settlement along with $300,000 in back alimony.
"I'm sure the world thinks, 'Sonja doesn't have to worry, she's got that husband there for her.' But I'm on my own," said Morgan.
The "real housewife" alleges that her financial problems began after a film venture between her production company, Sonja Productions, and Hannibal Pictures, Inc., never got off the ground.
Morgan filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in a New York bankruptcy court last year, where she listed almost $20 million in debts.
Morgan isn't the only member of the Bravo franchise dealing with a personal bankruptcy. "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Terese Guidice and her husband filed for bankruptcy last June and are set to go to trial for bankruptcy fraud in November.
