Countess Luann de Lesseps

Before They Were Housewives - Luann de Lesseps

Who wants to know more about the life and times of Luann de Lesseps? If you answered “yes”, then Bravo has a treat for you – an hour long look into what happens before you join the largest reality TV franchise in history. Dust off your book of etiquette and brush up on your française, because it’s time to chat with The Countess of Real Housewives of New York.
Here’s what I learned: Luann is a tough cookie, is super photogenic, knows how to sniff out a good man, and can rock a sequined red dress like nobody’s business. OK, there’s a bit more.



Ramona Singer is a lot of things but lazy, she ain’t!  A real hustler by nature, always in search of the next BEST thing, the Real Housewives of New York City’s frenzied co-star has pretty much always been a hard worker.  Over the years she has launched a fashion and skincare line, created a jewelry line for the HSN and let’s not forget, her eponymous Pinot Grigio.  Yep, Ramona is certainly a Jill-of-all-trades, so why not saunter into the hair biz?  (It’s like a Real Housewives rite of passage!)  Ramona is now selling real human hair extensions.

Ramona reportedly inked a deal with Lux Beauty Club’s co-founder Victoria Flores for a line of hair extensions that she will be promoting (and why not?) on her famed reality show.  An insider who spoke to Page Six revealed, “She’s 100 percent involved. It’s real human hair extensions and she’s all about it.”   Ramona is said to be excited about her new venture and very much wants her co-stars to sample the silky goods. 


Love is in the air big time for Real Housewives of New York City’s, Luann de Lesseps.  Reportedly, the Countess is all googly-eyed over boyfriend Thomas D’Agostino Jr. and it is rumored, he just might ‘put a ring on it’ and just in time for the show’s upcoming season.

Luann and Thomas were casual around September but then things really got percolating.  Thomas had also reportedly dated RHONY’s resident kook, Ramona Singer for a hot minute but the pair went their separate ways and there doesn’t seem to be any hard feelings.  Meanwhile, just who is this Thomas with the oh-so-familiar last name?  Well, he is a millionaire and the CEO of Smart Source, LLC, a sourcing company with category expertise in buying, managing and distributing print and promotional materials.  Thomas’ last name is also a well known one particularly on the east coast, according to the scuttlebutt, he has been linked to the famed and long-standing supermarket chain, D’Agostino.

RHONY season 8 reunion

Ramona Singer is going overboard to prove Ramona Pinot is better than Skinnygirl! According to sources Ramona was totally drunk at the Real Housewives Of New York reunion after she spent the entire filming sipping on her own fine wine.

Ramona got so drunk an insider claims she passed out on the stage during taping! “The ladies broke for lunch, which was ordered into the venue and Ramona supplied her own wine,” a source shares. “By the time they had to return to the set, she was out of it.” Due to her constant pinot swilling Ramona requested two bathroom breaks, which required filming to be paused. 

Ramona drank so much of her own wine, which she brought with her to the taping, that she literally fell asleep,” dishes an eyewitness. Hopefully someone drew all over her face with eyeliner! Ramona denied taking a mid-reunion nap and claimed she was “meditating” for a few minutes. She was just resting her eyes, you guys!!!! 


Celebrities Visit SiriusXM Studios - April 13, 2015

After this week’s exhausting installment of Real Housewives of New York, there may be nary a NY housewife left who is willing to give Sonja Morgan one more inch…or one more drink. After Sonja’s Rain-Man inspired “I’m a Very Good PR Person” rambling, among other drunken rants that lasted nearly 24 annoying hours on their Atlantic City trip, Luann de Lesseps says in her recent Bravo blog that she is done, done, done trying to reason with Lady Morgan.

Beginning with the limo ride Luann thankfully missed, she says, “I’ve never been happier to skip a limo ride than I was when the girls left to do AC! What was up with Lady Morgan leaving the girls singing (bitching) in the rain until she was ready to leave? Why couldn’t one of her multiple assistants make them a cup of tea while they waited? I wonder sometimes if Sonja is just clueless or self-absorbed (or both).” Bethenny Frankel’s roadside urination (hey, we’ve all been there, amiright?!) was also something the Countess is happy to have missed: “This is not the first time we’ve seen Bethenny pee on television, but hopefully it’s our last. Incontinent women, baby wipes, and va-jjs are just the beginning of what you are going to see in Atlantic City. Wasn’t there a rest stop along the way?”

In her latest blog, Sonja Morgan comments on the cougartown-on-gummybear shenanigans that took place on this week’s episode of Real Housewives of New York.

Calling out Heather Thomson for having double standards when it comes to supporting her friends’, eh, questionable choices in men, Sonja throws some shade her way: “I’m glad to see that Heather can be supportive of someone, because she hasn’t been able to support me of recent. I’m surprised, though, that Heather was able to listen to that whole speel (sic) from Carole–doing drugs, drinking tequila, throwing up in a rickshaw, and hiding a relationship from Luann-–without making a single judgmental comment! Weren’t Heather and Carole just saying last week that I drink too much and am out of control?” She adds, “But hey, maybe Heather is finally learning to accept that some people are fun! Either that or Heather has different standards for Carole than she has for me. I’m starting to think that it is the latter and that Heather is just giving me a hard time to give me a hard time! Do you think there is an underlying factor causing this? Because we have always been cool with each other, not uncool.” Hey! No stealing the countess’s Best.Line.Ever! #becoolplagiarism


The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 7

In her Bravo blog, new gal Dorinda Medley gives us her take on this season’s start of the Real Housewives on New York, and she keeps her cheese on her cracker and her napkin in her lap for now. (But wouldn’t it be incredible to see her let loose at some point? Please let that happen at a future Sonja Morgan burlesque circus side show!)   Dorinda starts her blog by announcing her Berkshires allegiance: “As you may or may not know, I am not a Hamptons girl; I am #TeamBerkshires. But hey, this could be fun too, right?” 

As close as Dorinda and Ramona Singer have been over the years, she’d never been to Ramona’s Hamptons home. Hmm. Fishy? Displacing Sonja Morgan in the guest suite was a first-time perk! “Meeting Lady Morgan was a nice little adventure, too. She’s so beautiful. And I can totally see why Ramona gets flustered with her and her tendency to monopolize a conversation. But Sonja is a trip. I really like her,” Dorinda kindly says…because she doesn’t want to be labeled the “Bethenny” of the group yet.
