Say It Isn’t So: NYC ‘Housewife’ Sonja Morgan, Sin City Burlesque Queen

If Burlesque wasn’t dead, this would killdish-062413-sonja-morgan-burlesque it. Seems that the Cougar Poster Girl and UES exhibitionist, Sonja Morgan, is planning a racy Las Vegas review starring (who else)…Sonja Morgan. Co-conspirator is Steve Wynn.

“Steve told me I can come out when I want to perform,” she’s quoted as telling the Post. “I would love to take this whole show to Broadway or off-Broadyway.”–Sonja Morgan

Via Bravo blog:

“Las Vegas may never be the same: Sonja Morgan says she’s planning a burlesque act in Sin City.

The Real Housewives of New York star told The New York Post that she is looking to launch a saucy show with the help of her friend, casino mogul Steve Wynn, and his wife, Andrea Hissom.

“Steve told me I can come out when I want to perform,” she’s quoted as telling the Post. “I would love to take this whole show to Broadway or off-Broadyway.”

Sonja gave a preview of what’s to come for a benefit in the Hamptons recently. According to the Post, the act featured 40 backup dancers, white ostrich-feather fans, a feather headdress, as well as a “bustier and tiny underwear.” She also poked fun at her failed marriage to J.P. Morgan heir John Adams Morgan, whom she divorced. (She’s most recently been linked to 23-year-old real estate developer Benjamin Benalloul.)

“Just because I married JPM, you thought this pucker was lined with gold and I’d be left holding the bag, but this bankd is closed,” she’s quoted as saying.

So where does she get inspiration from for her show? The Internet, hip-hop…and the Roaring Twenties! “I look up 1920s words on Wikipedia, then I write them down and make them rhyme,” she told the Post. “I’m like a rapper. I took out my phone and recorded it all in 20 minutes…like, ‘I wanna leave a juice joint at 2 and wake up with a 10, not wake up at 10 with a two.”
