“The Real Housewives of New York” star Sonja Morgan filed for personal bankruptcy on season four of the show and even though the sixth season is approaching, nothing seems to have changed in Sonja’s financial life. In fact, she is still on the verge of losing her New York townhouse if she doesn’t find the money soon. She has been waiting for her divorce settlement, but she seems to be waiting for it still. According to a new Radar Online report from Feb. 4, “The Real Housewives of New York” star Sonja Morgan continues to battle for her New York home after experiencing a legal set back.
Sonja was successfully sued by Hannibal Pictures for failure to raise money for a film with John Travolta, a movie that was never made. She was sued for $7 million, and with the interest and attorney rates, she owes $8.5 million. Sonja had hoped to get the judgment thrown out on a minor legal technicality - the fact that the company suing her wasn’t a company at the time - but it sounds like the judge is going against her.
Not only did the judge uphold the $8.5 million, but he also gave Hannibal Pictures an additional year to enforce a lien on Morgan’s earnings and assets. This means that Sonja may be forced to sell her house. One can hope for Sonja that she gets the divorce settlement to help her out.
