Sonja Morgan net worth: Sonja Morgan is an American socialite, film producer and reality television star who has a net worth of $8 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 in St. Tropez, both free and clear. Although in recent episodes of RHONY allude that Sonja could potentially lose both homes. On June 17, 2014 it was revealed that a trustee in the bankruptcy case had sold off the French Chateau for $5.7 million.
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.

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 and also has plans to release a toaster oven bearing her brand in the future.
