While Sonja Morgan thinks her “Caburlesque” is gonna become a thing (like “Fetch” is), LuAnn de Lesseps is actually working hard and earning money. Apparently being a former countess agrees with her! 

At a housewarming shindig for her new house in Sag Harbor this weekend, LuAnn was all saucy jokes and quick wit – including revealing how she met her ex-husband and has quite the storied past! LuAnn apparently keeps a journal of all the good jokes she hears and “writes down” the punchlines so she can remember them. 


At the party, LuAnn served steak and paella (and undoubtedly pie!) and entertained friends Lady Liliana Cavendish, Irik and Ann Marie Sevin, Richard and Donna Soloway, and Campion and Tatiana Platt.

LuAnn disclosed that as a former showgirl in Italy she was discovered by former Prime Minister (and legendary lady lover) Silvio Berlusconi who “put her on the biggest soccer show in Italy with 15 million viewers,” reveals Page Six. Quips LuAnn about the experience, “I was a star overnight. It changed my life.” And Lu is nothing but grateful. 

All of her fabulous experiences are paying off – LuAnn is selling the Hamptons spread she got in her divorce for $8.5 million, but not until summer is over because she currently has it rented out for the entire season! The Bridgehampton abode boasts a tennis court and a pool, but also LuAnn’s fabulous taste. 

Seriously – LuAnn should have written a book about this and not that dumb etiquette tome. This is the real Lu – irreverent, ribald, and charismatic. I’m glad it’s finally coming out this season on Real Housewives of New York

Speaking of which, tonight is the first installment of the epic three-part reunion which is said to be another ‘farewell’ for the show that will be undergoing another renaissance. Tonight Andy Cohen will quiz Ramona Singer about Mario’s affair and LuAnn will let Ramona have it as retribution for all the atrocious comments Ramona made when the Count left LuAnn for a younger woman and she divorced. 

But before all the nastiness, let’s review tonight’s outfits!

LuAnn wore Countess LuAnn Collection, which “earned rave reviews from the other ladies.” Carole Radziwill wore a vintage gown, but she forgot the designer. Heather Thomson rocked Valentina Kova dress, Manalo Blahnik shoes and Manny Sharp jewels. Kristen Taekman favored a high-low look pairing a custom bustier designed by Christiaan Choy, a Lanvin skirt with earrings and rings were created by Deborah Pagani and shoes by Jimmy Choo.

Ramona finally put away the satin cocktail dresses from the Blanche Deveaux Collection and glommed it up with a Badgley Mischka and Stuart Weitzman heels.
