Sonja Morgan, star of The Real Housewives of New York is doing a bit of down-sizing these days. In an effort to pay off her debts, the femme fatale was recently forced to rent out her Upper East Side townhouse for $25,000 a month.
Ex-wife of John Morgan (J.P. Morgan heir), appeared in a recent RHONY episode where she talked about not being in a position to afford hot water and her 1990’s Mercedes was falling apart. Her financial struggles are glaringly apparent this season. She’s tried to sell her townhouse but it has sat on the market for years. The $25,000 a month rental income will help to pay the taxes on the property until it can be sold.
Sonja has been in financial turmoil for quite some time since her divorce from the wealthy J.P. Morgan heir. She was sued by Hannibal Pictures, when she didn’t fulfill her end of an agreement to fund a movie that was suppose to star John Travolta. The production company won a $7 million judgement against her which ultimately forced her into filing bankruptcy in 2010.
Everyone loves Sonja Morgan on the RHONY because of her flirty fun personality. No wonder she holds the RHONY fan favorite title and was voted ‘favorite housewife of the entire franchise by Andy Cohen. We hope Sonja can get back on her feet soon.
