'Real Housewives of New York' Star Sonja Morgan May Lose House, 'Hung' Experiments and More TV News

Sonja MorganSonja Morgan's life (and financial woes) have been splashed on the front pages of tabloids and TV screens thanks to her role on 'Real Housewives of New York City,' but now the reality star is speaking out about her messy divorce and money troubles.

According to the New York Post, Morgan may lose her Upper East Side town house.

"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," Sonja said.

Sonja claims in court papers that John Adams Morgan, her 80-year-old ex-husband, is refusing to pay her a $3 million divorce judgment and $300,000 in back alimony. Sonja also claims he has barred her from selling and visiting properties she co-owns with him in Colorado and France.

Last fall, Sonja filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

I don't wish bad upon anyone, but (they) the people who display themselves on t.v. living the extravagent lifestyle they live and party here and party there sometime need a reality check that some of us live everyday. Sure I would love to not worry about how I will get the next dime to pay a bill. But I surely know one thing, if I had that kind of money it wouldn't be spent on non needed items like I see in some homes on T.V. So to you there Sonia, sell your shoes, and crap and get a job. I bet you you'll be happier in the long run, because then you will know that you have earned it!

Gold-digger extrdonaire! I loved the sceen in the show where she is whining about her bankruptsy woes all the while getting a facial, manicure and pedicure! what a joke?! and flirting up to that doctor, and claiming he "wants her".......! He could not have acted LESS interested! and I have never seen this woman work, and also, if she is "broke", then how did she pay for that extravagant trip?! Even if the show paid for the trip, she still went shoppong and got her hair and nails done. i work forty plus hours a week as a NURSE and can't afford to get manicures, and pedicures!
I do NOT feel the slightest bit sorry for her. She blew money like water, just like Theresa on NJ Housewives and ended up in the same boat~~ a sinking one.

NO sympathy here !! I see how she lives, I watch it every week On Bravo ! Maybe learning how to live like the rest of Americans will teach her to stop being such a bitch.

When will old men learn that young women only love their bank accounts and it costs big bucks when they aren't a play kitten anymore. Arm candy costs money. She's a gold digger and he's an old fool.
