The Real Housewives of New York City star Sonja Morgan, is broke. She's also basically homeless since she's renting her Upper East Side townhome to the tune of $25,000 a month to make ends meet.
And that $25,000 a month?
Yeah, that only covers the property taxes on the home and doesn't even make a dent in the millions the former wife of heir to J.P. Morgan supposedly owes the government.
While scenes for RHONY are being shot in the apartment, Sonja's "interns" seem to be the ones who actually live there.
The five-story, five-bedroom home, which contains a gym, sauna, and garden, is a gorgeous place, but Sonja Morgan just can't afford to keep living there.
She's trying - and failing - to maintain a high-class profile but her financial and legal woes are making that difficult.
Ultimately, the supposed plan is that Morgan will sell the property, no doubt spinning the story in such a way that she says she was ready to move on to something different for some made up reason that has nothing to do with the fact that she's living above her means in an attempt to keep up with the Joneses.
That's not a new phenomenon among the Real Housewives of ANY city, but it will certainly be interesting to watch The Real Housewives of NYC online and see it play out.
Despite the fact that Morgan filed bankruptcy in 2010, she continues to maintain her lavish lifestyle by throwing swanky parties, but it's all an act. She's barely hanging on with her salary from the show to keep her financially afloat. I guess selling toasters just wasn't as lucrative as Morgan thought.
Luckily (or not) she's not alone when it comes to stars who are broke. She joins the ranks of these famous broke celebrities ...
