Sonja Morgan, one of the stars on "The Real Housewives of New York City", is on the brink of losing her house. The 47-year-old reality star told the New York Post that she may have to sell her $6 million Upper East Side town house because of her bitter divorce battle with 80-year-old ex-husband, John Adams Morgan.
The TV personality, who filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last fall because of her $19 million debt, said in the interview she's getting screwed by her ex-husband, who is a descendant of famed financier J.P. Morgan. On her financial woes, she commented, "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, who joins "Real Housewives" in mid-Season 3, claimed in court papers that John Adams refuses to pay a lump sump divorce settlement of $3 million, and owes her $300,000 in back alimony. She also noted that her ex lives on his private, $19 million island off Stamford, Connecticut, but won't allow her to sell or visit the properties she co-owns with him in Colorado and France.
