Sonja Morgan is not about to let the turmoil and uncertainty surrounding The Real Housewives of New York mess with her bag – even if it means competing with a co-star/friend.

The 57-year-old ex-wife of the heir of Morgan Stanley and J.P. Morgan & Co. will be launching her own cabaret show under the title Sonja In Your City, which seems to be in direct competition with Luann de Lesseps' existing Countess & Friends.

Run by Asylum Theatricals – with Norm Laviolette and Jeremy Brothers as coordinators – Sonja In Your City is described by casting website backstage.com as a cabaret comedy show based out of New York.

Unlike Lu's pre-pandemic cabaret performances, Sonja's will not venture outside of the Big Apple; Sonja In Your City will take place at various comedy clubs, whose locations will be determined at a later time.

The dates of the upcoming shows have also not yet been announced.

As fans of the the Bravo reality television series recall, de Lesseps once asked Morgan to be a part of her cabaret show, only to rescind the invitation soon after.

The combination of a then-self-absorbed Lu and an unappreciated/underpaid Sonja caused major drama during Season 11. The ladies have since made up, fought about other things and made up again.

Though Sonja did end up making a few cameos in Lu's show, it's unclear where the two stand now in light of their dueling cabarets!

Radar has reached out for comment.
