LuAnn de Lesseps has been an iconic figure on Real Housewives Of New York as The Countess. Although LuAnn was demoted last season, she’s back with a bang in season 7, and continuing to embrace a down-to-earth, relaxed attitude – including leaving behind the pretentious of the Upper East Side and Southampton.
Gracing the cover of Resident Magazine, LuAnn spills all about what led her to NYC, how she became involved in RHONY, and just how real she thinks reality TV is!
LuAnn says she signed on for reality TV after meeting Jill Zarin at a Michael Moore party (of all places – it was the screening of Sicko in 2007). Jill, ever the social climber, immediately climbed on board with adding a Countess to her friends roster.
Tom Sandoval is permanently juggling two crazies at one time: his ex-girlfriend Kristen Doute and his betraying BFF Jax Taylor. You would think after all the years of enabling he’d have gotten a system down, but it turns out until recently the he hasn’t been standing up for himself, but now he is.
According to Tom 1, Jax, much like Stassi Schroeder, believes doesn’t understand that friendship works two-ways. “When I called Jax out about the San Diego girl, I was doing so because in the past — if and when Jax has ever had the smallest piece of dirt on Schwartz or I — he has embellished on it and then gone on to tell anyone with two ears,” the Vanderpump Rules star explained. “Then when confronted on this embellished dirt that he has had, he’s denied it to our face.”
Of course everyone immediately suspected MTV either paid for the ring or Nathan used the Teen Mom 2 star’s MTV money to buy it because generally unemployed people with three children to marginally support cannot afford diamonds that cost upwards of $4,000! Especially when you add court and legal fees to the bills they have to pay.
Of course, unemployed people generally don’t go on luxury vacations to St. Thomas with a group of friends, either! The Jenelle insists that Nathan both bought the ring himself and also paid for Jenelle, and 2 of their close friends to be in St. Thomas for the totally unplanned and impromptu proposal!
Claudia Jordan just moved to Atlanta and was robbed! Don’t worry – it wasn’t her apartment (because she didn’t have anything to take as you recall, she’s was serving wine in Solo Cups and sitting on the floor atop a Target rug).
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star shared on instagram that her car was broken into and featured a photo of the smashed in windows. Claudia’s laptop was taken – hopefully there wasn’t anything too naughty on there! (steamy photos with Atlanta’s favorite sometimes bachelorRoger Bobb?!) – and she is offering a cash reward for whomever returns it.
What can be said about last night’s Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. Don’t get me wrong – I’ll say plenty – but did that actually happen? Did an Emmy-award winning actress really get a glass of backwashed wine thrown in her face by a desperate divorcee on a 10-year drunken meltdown? The answer to that question is unfortunately, yes.
Other things happened leading up to the white wine wash – it started with the last glamorous, happy, successful woman Brandi Glanville insulted on every level – Lisa Vanderpump. Brandi looked nice at that lunch, as if she played Invasion of the Body Snatchers with Yolanda Foster.
Brandi Glanville is losing all of her friends – except for the one who compared her to a dog! And even though Yolanda Foster made such an unsightly comparison Brandi realizes it’s better to at least one ally than none allies, so she’s brushing her fellow Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star’s comment off!
“I am not upset at all & I understand @YolandaHFoster more then most people so I take this as a compliment,” Brandi tweeted, sharing a photo of her and Yolanda together. Albeit a photo from a magazine, because as you know these two don’t interact outside of the Bravo confines!
