'Real Housewives of NYC' Star Sonja Morgan Files for Bankruptcy, Blames John Travolta

Sonja MorganSonja Morgan is joining fellow 'Real Housewife' Teresa Giudice on the bankruptcy train. Somebody call up Ramona Singer and get this woman some "Turtle time," stat.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Morgan, a recent addition to Bravo's 'The Real Housewives of New York City,' filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. In her petition, Morgan listed $19.8 million in debt with $13.5 million in assets. The source for her financial woes? None other than John Travolta.

Prior to Sonja's divorce from John Adams Morgan, the two began the aptly titled Sonja Productions, an indie movie company. The company produced 'The Marsh,' starring Forest Whitaker. Sonja Productions struck a deal with Hannibal Pictures Inc. to produce 'Fast Flash to Bang Time,' a film that had Travolta attached to star.

However, Morgan wrote in her affidavit that things turned sour when Travolta started making demands that Hannibal Pictures and her company could not meet. After the film deal fell apart, Hannibal Pictures took Morgan to court and won a $7 million judgment.

In her documents, Morgan said she wishes to preserve assets and her spot on 'Real Housewives' to allow her to pursue new endeavors. She listed her monthly income with support as $26,000.

'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star Giudice filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, claiming more than $11 million in debt.

That is $312,000 thousand per year. Did she ever hear of downsizing?

$26,000 per mo. comming in is not a "Real Housewife", even in NYC. For crying outloud, that's from spousal support, not even from working. Here's a news flash: most Americans get by on $26K PER YEAR. Those are "Real Housewives". You know, making Hamburger Helper for dinner.

Hearing people like her whine about having no money is really upsetting. What she should do is what my son and his youth group did. They slept in cardboard boxes overnight outside with signs to promote awareness for people who are homeless and experience REAL problems. Spending millions and taking in 26,000 a month is irrisponsible and foolish and to openly complain about it when so many americans are homeless and hungry is just downright iggnorant.

I read they get paid between 3,000 - 10,000 an episode. Some reality shows pay alot more. I don't see why they can't do a real housewives show with women just making ends meet. No, they use women that are alreaady rich,and most of them aren't even housewives. They're divorced single parents. Just a day of me shopping with my daughters is entertainment in it's self. :~)

Must be tough to live on 28 grand a month, Maybe she should have did a movie about aliens seeping into human souls and maybe john T. would have finished the film
