Sonja Morgan net worth: Sonja Morgan is an American socialite, film producer and reality television star who has a net worth of $15 million. Sonja Morgan is most famous for being one of the stars of Bravo's reality show The Real Housewives of New York. In November 2010, Sonja filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy citing $13.5 million in assets and $19.8 million in debts. $7 million of that debt resulted from a court judgement against her movie production company which is still being disputed today. The judgement concerned a failed movie project called "Fast Flash to Bang Time" which was supposed to star John Travolta. As of March 2013, the socialite still owns a $10 million NYC townhouse and an $8 million French Chateau, both free and clear. She is still owed a $3 million outstanding divorce settlement and $350,000 in child support from her ex-husband John Adams Morgan.
Sonja Morgan was born in Albany, New York in 1963 and attended the Fashion Institute of Technology where she earned a bachelor's degree in marketing. Sonja met her ex-husband John Adams Morgan while she was working as a hostess at the New York City Italian restaurant San Pietro. John Adams Morgan is 33 years older than Sonja and is a descendant of investment banker J.P. Morgan and President John Adams. The couple divorced in 2006 and share a daughter named Quincy. Since the divorce, Sonja claims her ex-husband has not paid a $3 million divorce settlement and owes over $300 thousand dollars in child support. She also says John will not permit her to visit any of their co-owned properties.
Sonja Morgan has written a cookbook featuring toaster oven recipes. Sonja has also been writing a screenplay about her divorce and thinks it will be released as a book in the future. Should be some interesting reading! Sonja continues to finish her screenplay/book, raise her daughter and share the spotlight with the other Real Housewives of New York City, as well as doing charity benefits and personal appearances.
