Bankrupt “Real Housewife” Sonja Morgan Blames It On … John Travolta?
Sonja Morgan of “The Real Housewives of New York City” is joining Teresa Giudice on the “Real Housewives” broke list. Morgan recently filed for bankruptcy, citing that she was more than $19 million in debt. While some may think all the money was carelessly spent on handbags and brunches, Sonja is pointing the finger at John Travolta. The housewife’s production company, Sonja Productions, was working with Hannibal Pictures on a film starring John called “Fast Flash to Bang Time,” which sounds all kinds of bizarrely sexual. The project was dropped in 2006, resulting in a lawsuit where Hannibal Pictures sued Sonja Productions. Hannibal ended up winning and walking away with $7 million out of Sonja’s pocket.
Sonja says that while poor representation caused her to lose the legal battle, it was John who caused the court meeting in the first place. John apparently was a bit of a diva and requested so much from Sonja Productions that they weren’t able to keep up and had to shut down the project. What could he have asked for that cost that much money? More planes? An onset Scientology church? Morgan won’t give the dirty details, but she swears it was Travolta’s neediness, in addition to her recent divorce, that left her in the red.
I wonder if there’s a way to make John pay off my student loans in all of this? [Celebuzz]
