'Real Housewives' Star Sonja Morgan Losing Her NYC Home?
Bankrupt Reality Star May Lose $6 Million Home After Bitter Divorce Battle
Real Housewives of New York City viewers have known about Sonja Morgan's financial woes -- major financial woes -- ever since a June episode of the Bravo series focused on her having filed for bankruptcy with more than $19 million worth of debt. (Jill Zarin was more than a little verklempt.)
But now, the New York Post reports, things have gotten so bad for Morgan, 47, that she may be forced to sell the $6 million Upper East Side home she shares with daughter Quincy (whom we've never seen on the show). And the forced move will come as a result, Morgan says, of her "bitter" divorce from 80-year-old ex-hubby John Adams Morgan.
"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," Morgan, most famous for being the Housewife who forgets to wear underwear and whips up weird meals in her toaster oven, told the Post.
We're not sure "the world" is thinking about the blond Housewife at all, but her point is the same; she's broke, and despite the fact that her ex is a millionaire who lives on his own private island near Connecticut, she's in real danger of having to sell her home because of what she claims is a $3 million lump sum payment owed to her by her former spouse.
Sonja Morgan also claims, via court papers, that Adams Morgan, a J.P. Morgan heir and descendent of President John Adams, is denying her access to the luxury homes they co-own in Colorado and France.

Morgan Adams, meanwhile, is holding up payments to his former missus because he says a judge ordered him to pay more than former San Pietro restaurant hostess Sonja was entitled to via pre- and post-nuptial agreements.
We, meanwhile, can't help but think Sonja Morgan could fix this whole mess herself by pulling up her big girl panties (when she decides to wear them, that is) and getting to work in earnest on that toaster oven cookbook she's always threatening to write. Hey, if it worked for New Jersey Housewife Teresa Guidice, it can work for anybody.
