Sonja Morgan was a drunken, slurry, kissy mess in NYC last night ... and best of all -- she did it all on camera.
The "Real Housewives of New York" star was leaving the VIP Room in NYC Wednesday night -- WASTED -- and desperately wanted to tell us how she was the life of the party. Problem is ... she was too wasted to get the words out cleanly.
Actually, that's not a problem -- it's awesome. Just watch.
We'd say Sonja was in rare form ... if it weren't for the fact she does this a lot.
Seven-Figure Offer for
Alleged Sex Tape
9/11/2014 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Iggy Azalea allegedly recorded a sex tape that could make her millions upon millions -- according to a Hollywood porn boss, but Iggy tells TMZ she can't cash in on the vid ... because it's NOT her!
Vivid honcho Steven Hirsch tells us he has seen some footage which he says appears to be Iggy with an ex-boyfriend -- and from the little he's seen ... he's sure it could easily top Kim Kardashian's legendary sex tape in sales.
Hirsch says he's already reached out to the 24-year-old "Booty" rapper to open negotiations on what could be a multi-million dollar deal -- but the problem is Iggy's camp says Hirsch's eyes are playing tricks on him. They tell us the I-G-G-Y is not the chick on vid doing the dirty ... and they're ready to sue over the alleged footage.
Of course, without Iggy signing off on it ... the vid can't be legally released. It also means she won't collect years and years of mailbox money ... like Ray J still does.

Ray Rice says hard liquor was the fuel that triggered his elevator rage and he hasn't touched the stuff in months ... sources close to Rice tell TMZ Sports.
Rice told the Baltimore Ravens he and Janay Palmer had been drinking HEAVILY before the altercation. Rice is telling friends he becomes a different person when he boozes it up ... so he's changed his life.
But he hasn't changed that much, because we're told he still drinks wine ... just not hard liquor.
Our sources say Ray and his wife have gotten deep into religion since the February incident -- they were both baptized in March when they decided to become Born again Christians.
We're also told they've also done religious mentoring with other couples ... including NFL players and their wives.
As for Ray, he issued a statement Tuesday saying he's trying to "work through this" -- noting, "We have a lot of people praying for us."

Clinic Claims No Biopsy
No General Anesthesia
9/11/2014 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The surgery clinic where Joan Rivers' heart stopped beating is calling BS on a report suggesting her death was caused by a biopsy that should have only been performed at a hospital.
Yorkville Endoscopy broke its silence after the New York Daily News story ran ... saying a biopsy was NOT performed during the ill-fated procedure.
The Daily News story claimed a doctor who arrived with Rivers was performing the biopsy after doctors spotted something on her vocal cords, and her vocal cords seized ... leading to a fatal chain of events.
And Yorkville went on to say they do NOT administer general anesthesia, saying they use "light to moderate sedation."
New York authorities are still investigating cause of death.

Matt Lauer knows ... the first morning show to interview Ray Rice WINS -- and that's why the "Today" show ... and everyone else in morning TV is officially in on the chase to lock down the NFL star.
Matt played coy when we asked if he had already reached out to Rice -- but the answer was written all over his face.
He also explained, "Ray Rice has a story to tell that he wants to get out there." It's clear, Lauer wants to be the one to help him tell that story.
"I think anybody who does what I do for a living would wanna sit down with either of them [Ray and Roger Goodell] and Janay as well."
Ray has texted back and forth with some ESPN reporters over the past few days -- but it's unclear if he's committed to an on-camera interview ... yet.
