Sonja Morgan is the only housewife one organization really wants

Sonja Morgan may have a lot of financial difficulties but at least she still gets the comp invites. As reported by the NY Daily News, she's the only woman out of all the "Real Housewives" shows that GLAAD has provided a complimentary ticket for when it comes to this Saturday’s 25th annual GLAAD Media Awards.

According to one GLAAD source, producers were forced to clamp down on the free invites to reality stars such as the housewives in order to keep up the prestige of the show and the number of paid guests. The source sarcastically asked why people would pay a lot of money for a ticket when they see that "obnoxious reality stars" are attending for free. So instead of reality stars, the producers have increased the number of A-listers, which reality stars clearly are not.

Unfortunately for the stars of "The Real Housewives of New York City," whose reps reportedly suggested the use of the cast as presenters at the show, this means that if they want to go, they'll have to fork over their own cash. Sonja, however, is the exception. The feisty and fun-loving blonde, who enjoys a large gay following, made it on the invite list.

So how much will the housewives have to pay to rub shoulders with the likes of Kylie Minogue, Kacey Musgraves, Naomi Watts, Emmy Rossum, and Laura Prepon? One regular ticket, which includes the cocktail reception, auction, dinner and show, costs $600.

A few hundred dollars is chump change for many housewives but perhaps not Sonja Morgan. In mid-April, the NY Daily News reported that the reality star has been forced to rent out her Upper East Side mansion for $25,000 a month. This comes after she filed bankruptcy in 2010 and a judge in 2011 upheld a $7 million judgement against her brought on by Hannibal Pictures. Hopefully, if she does attend the awards show on Saturday, she's able to party away all her troubles - at least for one night.
