Oops! Sonja Morgan Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction During Luann de Lesseps’ Cabaret Show

Sonja Morgan gave the audience at New York City venue Feinstein’s/54 Below an extra show on Thursday night, when she suffered a wardrobe malfunction during her high-energy performance.

The Real Housewives of New York City star, 54, had joined fellow New York City Housewife Luann de Lesseps on stage for her #CountessAndFriends cabaret program, collaborating on de Lesseps’ tune “Money Can’t Buy You Class.”

It was a highlight of de Lesseps’ two-hour show:  The crowd quickly jumping to their feet when Morgan emerged from the audience in a halter-top, red silk wrap dress (which she had also worn during a Valentine’s Day trip to Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen).

But toward the end of the song — as fellow Housewives Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer sang and clapped along — Mogan’s dress unwrapped, exposing her backside to the packed house.

Ever the professional, Morgan didn’t miss a beat in her performance. She powered through, still singing while turning to get an audience member’s help tying her dress back up before finally securing it herself.

Morgan’s slip was the only hiccup of the night, which opened with de Lesspes singing The Beatles’ 1967 hit “With a Little Help from My Friends” before transitioning into songs like “Almost Like Being in Love” and “L.O.V.E.”

The show, directed by Ben Rimalower and Billy Stritch, also included performances by Tony winner Laura BenantiSaturday Night Live star Rachel Dratch, Patti Cake$ ‘s Bridget Everett, the Scissor Sisters singer Jake Shears and Broadway stars Tony Yazbeck, Andrew Keenan-Bolger and Natalie Joy Johnson.

De Lesspes first performed the #CountessAndFriends show in February. She will return to Feinstien’s/54 Below with the program and a slew of special guests later this spring.

It’s been a tough few months for de Lesseps, who was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida, on Christmas Eve and charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer/firefighter/EMT, resisting arrest with violence and threatening a public servant. (She’s since pleaded not guilty to the charges, with a hearing set for April).

The mother of two married ex-husband Tom D’Agostino in Palm Beach last New Year’s Eve before their divorce seven months later. Following her Dec. 24 arrest, the reality star checked herself into an alcohol treatment facility.

“Obviously it was a really bad night for me and something I am not proud of,” de Lesseps told The New York Times in February about the incident.

“I’m trying to keep it light while also taking it seriously,” she added about the cabaret show. “The important thing is to not take yourself so damn seriously. I always think, ‘I can survive this if I keep on moving.’ ”

The Real Housewives of New York City’s 10th anniversary season premieres April 4 (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

RHONY’s Sonja Morgan’s Clothing Line is Finally Here, Guys!

Anybody who knows anything about Real Housewives of New York City knows that there’s been a lot of plot line action surrounding Sonja Morgan’s clothing line. (Is it happening? Is it not happening? Why did she invite Bethenny, not Heather, to preview it all?).

Well lo and behold, it’s happening, with a website taking preorders for a range of dresses, tops, jackets, and swimsuits that actually look really good.

This sheer-back blouse would work well on a date, on the weekend, or worn under a respectable blouse for work. Also? So Sonja.

If you watch the show, you might remember Sonja talking about how the line was going to encompass all the types of pieces she wears regularly, including polished jackets. This open-front shawl style, in a vivid red, would look amazing on Lady Morgan.

Swimsuits are included too (both one- and two-pieces) and everything has the classic look we’ve seen her wear when the ladies summer in the Hamptons or beyond.

And, as promised, the evening gown she wore to celebrate her cover of Latino Show is available for everyone to purchase (though at $ 1,095, it’s definitely not the Kmart level fellow housewife Heather Thomson asked about).

Queen Sonja of Norway Meets Winning Printmakers

DESIGN BY NORWAY: Her Majesty Queen Sonja of Norway breezed into Scandinavia House Thursday to meet with the winning printmakers and founders of the award named in her honor. An artist in her own right, she spoke enthusiastically about the importance of art and design — at times standing near the numerous prints that she herself had created, including one called “Gala” and another entitled “Lightening.”
Andy Warhol painted Her Majesty in his heyday and she has amassed what is said to be an impressive art collection since that time. Standing with Svend-Allan Sorensen near his Henry David Thoreau-inspired work, she said she suggested he add ducks to the piece. The three thought-provoking frames carried the message, “The Bird is Gone and There is no Trace Beyond.”
The queen spoke with WWD about what New York-based designers might glean from Norway’s design brigade. “We are very aware of the whole attitude of design and design is very important. The Scandinavian look is very important — clear-cut, fresh colors, brave. There is something quite clear about Scandinavian art, as also in Finland’s glass, Norway the same, all the Scandinavian countries are obsessed with design really.”
As for what role art, fashion and design can alleviate people’s
