was Sonja's husband that much older than her? I don't recall any references to his age. I know he was incredibly wealthy and JP Morgan's grandson, but I don't recall seeing anything about him being older
Didn't see a date on this.... an too much to paraphrase, wonder if this is ok to post here? ....From Starcasm website..... "Say it isn’t so! The lovable Sonja Morgan, who added a slight dose of sanity to the explosive Real Housewives of New York is filing for bankruptcy because she is almost $20 million in debt! (Via Us Weekly)
She states in bankruptcy documents: “The decision to seek bankruptcy was not an easy one, but unfortunately, I am at a crossroads in my life.”
This is pretty surprising because she is pretty recently divorced from a JP Morgan heir. It’s also rather shocking because most Real Housewives of New York are pretty savvy about money management.
The bulk of Morgan’s debt (which is about $19.8 million) is coming from a failed movie venture with Hannibal Pictures Inc. She was producing as movie under Sonja Productions called Fast Flash Bang Time. The movie was supposed to star John Travolta, but she claims she had to scrap the movie because the mega-movie star required “various conditions” that Sonja Productions was unable to meet.
Earlier reports about this project say the movie was called The Marsh, and starred Forrest Whittaker. Either way, the film was never made and Hannibal Pictures sued and won a $7 million case against her because of the broken business deal.
This has been quite a crazy year for Sonja. In June she got a DWI for drinking and driving during memorial day festivities, and in early 2010 she was trapped on Scary Island.
Sonja joined Real Housewives to be a marketing platform for future business ventures. She has expressed interest in writing novels and toaster oven cookbooks."[/I][/I][/I]
Wonder how that toaster oven cookbook thing is working out.
Toaster oven cookbook???? :rofl:rofl:rofl
Sonia is another one that was very likable last season but this season she's awful!
Maybe I'm a mush but I feel sorry for her - I just see insecurity. When I went through a divorce I felt out-of-control (more like running out of toilet paper than drunk driving however) and I just see her as so hurt. Sonja's artist boyfriend seems to be using her....I wonder how much he is to be blamed for her lack of funds.
Sonia is writing a toaster-oven cookbook? Well, if she is in bad financial shape, maybe she had to let the cook go!
I still have to watch this episode. Regarding toaster ovens, wasn't there a sort of mini-revival of them last year? They were sort of retro-chic like fondue pots or chemex coffee makers for a bit.
