Another “Housewife” has gone broke.

Sonja Tremont-Morgan, who joined “The Real Housewives of New York” franchise last season, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal reported.

“The decision to seek bankruptcy relief was not an easy one, but unfortunately, I am at a crossroads in my life,” Morgan said in court docs that listed nearly $20 million in debt and 13.5 million in assets, according to the Journal.

In a celebrity twist, Tremont-Morgan accused John Travolta of contributing to her financial problems for his part in a failed joint film venture between Tremont-Morgan’s production company Sonja Productions and Hannibal Pictures.

Tremont-Morgan alleged Travolta attached “various conditions” to star in “Fast Flash to Bang Time” that the venture could not meet, according to the Journal.

Hannibal later won a $7 million court judgment from Sonja Productions when the project was scuttled, the paper reported. Tremont-Morgan has appealed the decision. 

Earlier this year, New Jersey “Housewife” Teresa Guidice filed for bankruptcy, citing $9 million in debt.

Alleged White House crasher turned D.C. “Housewife” Michaele Salahi and her hubby Tareq also sought bankruptcy protection back in September, the Journal reported.
