LuAnn, 44, tweeted on Friday, “Well the cats out of the bag! Someone leaked my video!” Sure they did Countess. In the video, which was shot last month, LuAnn can be seen surrounded by a fleet of chiseled eye candy.
“There’s not really dancing,” said LuAnn of the video concept. “I just have very good looking men standing around. And it’s about how money can’t buy you class, so I’m taking money out of their pockets and throwing it onto the floor.”
The exclusive and not heavily air brushed video of LuAnn is below! Enjoy at your own risk.
That didn’t seem to work out too well for her, but you know what they say – If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again. Well our good ol Jill is now trying her luck again, and this time it’s with the mother of Pop star Britney Spears.
According to PEOPLE, Lynne Spears had a girls night out this week in Manhattan and invited was none other than Jill Zarin, who then took the time to leak this story to PEOPLE and even found time to make herself available for an exclusive interview about her new found friendship with Lynne. Ah that crafty Jill!
“I met Lynne a few years ago backstage with [my daughter] Ali at Britney’s concert at the Meadowlands [Sports Complex in New Jersey], we just connected and we kept in touch,” said Jill to PEOPLE. “When Lynne comes to town we try to meet and catch up. She called me a couple of months ago and said she was coming to New York.”
Jill also made sure to talk about Lynne’s kids and their well being. “We talked about Mother’s Day, what we got, about New Orleans, about traveling,” says Jill of their dinner. “Her kids are doing fantastic. Her grandkids are her life. She looks amazing. She’s in amazing shape; she works out. She was really happy.”
Gotta love this woman, she is relentless. And in case you’re wondering, Lynne did not speak a word to the press about her dinner or friendship with Jill.
Moving right along to Jill’s underdog. According to E! Online, we unfortunately haven’t heard the last of Countess LuAnn de Lesseps‘ singing. The Countess signed a deal this week with indie dance music label Ultra Records, and is apparently working on releasing a full album.
When asked about singing way off key in this week’s episode of the NYC Housewives, the Countess had the following to say: “In life, we don’t always hit the ‘high note’ but I wanted to go out and do my best because I have always loved to sing.” Good to see LuAnn doing something she loves albeit at the expense of our eardrums.
Life & Style magazine also reported that Bethenny and her fiance Jason Hoppy will be getting married on March 28, which is next Sunday. With the wedding so close, Bethenny reveals she still has a lot of planning to do. “I have to get through the planning — there are a lot of details that I don’t really have time for.”
Bethenny also gushes about her fiance Jason, “Jason’s the most supportive man. He’ll be Mr. Mom. I’ll come home, and he’ll be reading What to Expect When You’re Expecting. I’ll ask, ‘How big is the baby? Let me know when it’s the size of a watermelon.’ He’s amazing.”
The question on everyone’s mind seems to be which of her co-stars will be in attendance? As it has been widely publicized, Bethenny has feuded quite a bit with some of her fellow housewives. New housewife on the block, Jennifer Gilbertrevealed to HollywoodLife that “I know Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps are not going.” Jennifer continued, “I know Ramona is going, but I don’t know if anyone else is going.” Jennifer also confirms she wasn’t invited.
Bethenny has declined to talk about which housewives will be attending her wedding. She also denied a NYPost story that claimed she moved up her wedding date just so it could be televised. “I find it so funny,” Bethenny told Zap2it. “You don’t have to be Angela Lansbury to figure out if my show is called ‘Bethenny Getting Married,’ that maybe there might be a wedding on the show. If it was called “Bethenny’s Climbing a Mountain,” hopefully I would arrange to be on a mountain.”
And there you have it, Bethenny will be tying the knot this Sunday.

So what can be expect this third season? Well for one, Bethenny discovers she’s pregnant and gets engaged, LuAnn goes through her divorce and tries her hand at singing, Ramona renews her wedding vows, Alex gets catty and fiesty, and the ladies actually start to like Kelly. However, the main focus this season will be Jill vs Bethenny, as it has been widely reported the former BFFs are no longer friends.
According to E! News, LuAnn has already written and recorded a song titled “Money Can’t Buy Class,” a dance song inspired by her memoir/etiquette book Class With the Countess. LuAnn is however claiming she isn’t taking the singing thing too seriously, “I’m not trying to be Madonna, but I love to sing, and I can sing,” she says. “I sing all the time for my friends.”
So who would the Countess like to duet with? You will be surpised by LuAnn’s answer – “I want to work with Akon,” she said. “I love Akon. I saw him perform at the Apollo Theater. I took my daughter to see him because she’s such a huge fan, and I realized how great he was.”
When asked if a duet with Atlanta housewife Kim Zolciak is in the future, the Countess gave a somewhat polite answer. “I can’t see myself teaming up with her for a duet,” LuAnn said. “I think I’m going to fly solo for the moment.”
LuAnna also reveals she is dating again after her highly publicized split from husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps, who left her for an Ethopian princess last year. “I’m going slowly, but I’m very happy,” she said. “I’m finally ready to move forward.
