Sonja Morgan Saved from a Red Carpet Wardrobe Malfunction Thanks to Her Daughter

Posted on

As she says in the  Real Housewives of New York City Season 5 opening credits, “A little Sonja will spice up any party.” And whether it’s her love of whooping it up (as RHOC Vicki Gunvalson would say), her toaster oven empire in the making, or her passion for all the latest and greatest in “vajayjay tightening” technology, there’s a whole lot about Sonja Morgan to love. But all that spice and joie de vivre also come with an inevitable set of risks. A set of risks only amplified by the almost constant presence of cameras, such as nearly bursting out of her dress on the Difficult People premiere red carpet.

The reality star was making her way down the step and repeat at the premiere of the Hulu original show in NYC when she caught her dress in the midst of a major wardrobe malfunction in the making. It looks as though the zipper of her black and white dress began to come undone, working its way open to create a very revealing slit up the back of her skirt. And when your dress is entirely held together by a single zipper, the failure or success of that fastening device really makes all the difference.

Thankfully, she had her daughter, Quincy Adams Morgan, there by her side to play the role of her own personal Alexander Skarsgard, dashing in to save the day and re-zip the tiny zipper that threatened to undo Sonja’s entire piece of attire.

While it appears the fix was only temporary and the zipper continued to work itself loose as she moved down the red carpet, at least imminent disaster was briefly averted. And thankfully her Season 6 tagline (“Sometimes Sonja has to go commando. What can I say?”) didn’t hold true on this particular evening either.
