DOWN AND OUT — AND ABOUT: Real Housewife of New York Sonja Morgan isn’t letting her well-publicized financial woes keep her off the Hamptons party circuit. The bankrupt, blonde divorcée hit the Empire State Pride Agenda tea dance benefit, the Parrish Art Museum gala and Love Heals at Luna Farm, all on Saturday. “At the end of the day, you have your friends, your family and your fashion,” said Morgan of her televised money meltdown. “I bought this dress at Intermix and it was half off, with another 40 percent off, so basically it was free.”

Also at the Coney Island-themed Love Heals — which raised more than $300,000 for the Alison Gertz Foundation for AIDS Education — was fellow “housewife” Cindy Barshop, Russell Simmons, Chris and Cristina Cuomo, designer Miguelina Gambaccini, Cinema Society’s Andrew Saffir and hosts Mary Alice Stephenson, Peter Davis and Hilary Rhoda, who brought along boyfriend Sean Avery of the New York Rangers.

“I got asked out by a 24-year-old. I told him my son could use an older brother,” said a bemused Stephenson, who’s juggling a slew of fashion projects. On her plate currently: an E reality show that will begin tailing her next month; a style ambassador gig for the new Amazon shopping site Myhabit.com; a fashion project for Guy Oseary’s Rockpaperphoto.com, which sells fine art photography online, and consulting on the upcoming launch of a women’s fashion line from Ariana Rockefeller.
