Sonja Morgan, Part I:
Sonja Morgan of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New York City,” listed $19.8 million in debt and $13.5 million in assets on her bankruptcy petition, which she filed on November 11. The almost $7 million difference is the amount that Sonja lost in the lawsuit Hannibal Pictures v Sonja Productions. Morgan said she wasn’t adequately represented at the trial and has filed an appeal. Sonja Productions lost lawsuit…

She blamed her financial woes on a failed venture with Hannibal Pictures Inc. to make a movie starring John Travolta. That film was to be called “Fast Flash to Bang Time,” court papers said
. The movie had a bad title…Fast Flash to Bang Time(?!)… try saying that 3 times fast!
Morgan said the movie never got off the ground because of “various conditions” that Travolta demanded and her production company, Sonja Productions, could not meet.
Morgan also pointed to her “bitter” and unresolved divorce from her husband, a man she described as “many years my senior and a descendant of J.P. Morgan and John Adams.”

While she works to resolve these disputes and formulate a plan of reorganization, Morgan said she hopes to preserve the value of her assets and continue her career as a television personality. She said her appearances on “Real Housewives” position her to pursue potentially lucrative endeavors, like writing a cookbook and developing a clothing line.
Note to Sonja: You are intelligent enough to find a new path where you can create original projects. Please don’t insult your viewers with a cookbook titled, “The Skinny WASP Cookbook” or a clothing line “Sewn by Sonja.”
