Sonja Morgan has made the news again, last time it was for riding her scooter as a drunk and this time it’s because she can’t figure out where $12 million went and thus has been forced to file for bankruptcy.
Which means I shouldn’t feel too bad about my $72 overdraft.
Morgan, who is divorced from banking scion John Morgan of the J.P Morgan Morgans, is so heavily leveraged because of a film deal gone bad, apparently. She was supposed to make a film starring John Travolta, but when she couldn’t meet his demands, he pulled out and the whole thing fell to shit and she ended up losing a $7 million lawsuit. She’s since appealed the decision, but even that doesn’t explain where the other $12 million in debt came from.
Does this portend a horrid condition that being rich means you really poor, television and circus appearances at society fetes. Surely there must be chipmunks running around this minute collecting bread crumbs and movie deals for poor old Sonja. After all, if she is is forced to have a cake bake sale like her other ‘real’ (don’t you love the oxy-moron) house wife Teresa Guidice (who is probably now looking for a job as a bathroom attendant at an upmarket department store) how much will she really raise? Enough surely to tip the taxi driver on her way to her next ‘fail and repeat’ photo shoot.
