There’s no business like show business, but Sonja Morgan’s plan to break into the movie industry fell apart allegedly in part due to the demands of actor John Travolta. In 2005, the socialite created Sonja Productions LLC to finance and shoot the 2006 horror film “The Marsh,” for which Morgan was credited as executive producer. According to Us Weekly, Sonja Productions was set to partner with Hannibal Pictures Inc. to produce a feature film called “Fast Flash to Bang Time” with Travolta as the leading man. The movie never ended up getting made because Morgan claimed her company wasn’t able to satisfy all of the “Grease” actor’s “various conditions.” But the final blow came when Hannibal Pictures decided to sue Sonja Productions for failing to deliver the final product. The court ruled in favor of Hannibal and said Morgan needed to pay them $7 million.

In a 2011 Bravo blog post, the “RHONY” star reflected on how this failed foray into film led to her 2010 bankruptcy. “I am heartbroken that I have had the worse advice from so-called experts,” she lamented. “I trusted that my managing director who had 20 years experience in the movie business knew what he was doing and that my financial advisors and lawyers had me covered — all while going through a divorce and a financial market crash.”

Fortunately, the tides would turn for Sonja’s finances just years later.
