NYC 'Housewife' Sonja Morgan's got money woes

"Real Housewives of New York City" star Sonja Morgan may seem like the show's most easygoing cast member but now she's coming out swinging – at John Travolta.

The reality star, who filed for bankruptcy protection in Manhattan on Wednesday, is blaming the actor for her financial woes, reports the Wall Street Journal.

According to court papers, Morgan – who listed $19.8 million in debt and $13.5 million in assets on her bankruptcy petition - claims her money problems stem largely from a movie deal gone bad.

Her production company, Sonja Productions, had planned to partner with Hannibal Pictures Inc. for "Fast Flash to Bang Time," a movie that was to star Travolta but never took flight because of “various conditions” that Travolta demanded and Sonja Productions could not meet.

Hannibal Pictures then sued Sonja Productions and won a $7 million judgment. The Bravo star has since filed an appeal, claiming she wasn't adequately represented at the trial.

Morgan, who also blames her bankruptcy on her bitter and unresolved divorce from a man she describes as "many years my senior and a descendant of J.P. Morgan and John Adams," says she hopes to continue her career as a TV personality and pursue lucrative projects including writing a cookbook and launching a clothing line.

    this is ridiculous. At that level of money, you know when you are in depth 15 million and dear lord people, everything that is happening to us is not someone else's fault, it's ours. Take responsibility and stop blaming! She seems like a 911 situation to me...maybe we will write some the meanwhile check Eva Longoria and Tony.
