Luann De Lesseps

While the 4th season of the Real Housewives of New York City doesn’t premiere until February, one thing is apparent – which is that costars Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps are definitely not BFFs.

This became extremely obvious yesterday when Ramona, who also has a teenage daughter, re-tweeted a youtube video of Countess Luann’s 16-year-old daughter Victoria de Lesseps rolling up a joint and using the N-word.

Ramona deleted the tweet moments later, perhaps due to some of the backlash she received from fans on twitter or maybe someone advised her to. That reason is unclear but the damage was already done as news of the video quickly spread.

Though the youtube video has been taken down as of this morning, I personally viewed the entire 5 minute clip yesterday evening and Victoria appeared to be very high as she giggled and laughed her way through the 5 minute skype conversation with a female friend.

The shocking part of the video came in at about 4 minute mark when Victoria began to roll up what appeared to be a joint. Things then took a turn for the worst when Victoria uttered the N-word close to the 5-minute mark. In Victoria’s defense, she didn’t appear to be using the word as a racial slur. Though still ignorant, she seemed to be using it as a means to refer to her friend aka buddy, pal etc.

Victoria was also aware that her skype conversation was being recorded as she seemed excited at the thought of viewing the video in school the next day, implying she couldn’t wait to see her actions with a sober clear mind. No word on how the video made it’s way to youtube.

The NyMag.com also published a story about this and they were able to get a screen shot of Ramona’s re-tweet before she deleted it. That is below.

It seems the Royal Highness herself aka Countess Luann de Lesseps is now offering unsolicited advice to soon to be royal Kate Middleton.

In a new interview with RadarOnline, Countess Lulu who was married to Count Alexandre de Lessep for 16 years and has reportedly rubbed elbows with the King of Greece, shares that Kate and Prince William’s engagement news is “almost as exciting as the day I got married!”

The Real Housewives of New York City star added, “I think it must be very exciting for her…I was the same age so I think she’s coming to the table a little more experienced. She’s not a wallflower, she has a great personality and she enjoys a good joke! And I think she’s somebody who’s comfortable with who she is.”

Luann then had the following advice for Kate. “I think she (Kate) should stay true to herself and be her own person and have good mentors. I’m sure the queen would be delighted to help her,” the Countess said with a laugh. “Charm is key and being warm and endearing is really looked upon as a very positive trait.”

In other NYC news, Kelly Bensimon has decided to take a break from vacation mental meltdowns and foot in mouth press interviews to once again pose for paparazzi while wearing an itsy bikini.

We’ve have lost count of Kelly’s staged bikini paparazzi photo shoots but the latest one is below. The 42-year-old mother of two was photographed on a beach in Miami. She is reportedly there to promote her new jewelry line.

Jill Zarin is at it again!

According to the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, the Real Housewives of New York City star is angling for her own solo reality show.

The mag reports Jill, 46, is taking meetings “about her own reality show.” An insider states, “She likes the title: Jill Gets a Hobby” (a play on words stemming from Bethenny Frankel’s comments telling her to “get a hobby” last season.

“Jill wants it to focus on her and her sister (lawyer Lisa Wexler whom Jill wrote a book with) but her sister is boring,” says the source. “Jill feels done with Bravo after last season. She thinks Bethenny and Andy Cohen conspired to make Bethenny look like a victim.”

Jill’s rep is however denying the story, telling HollywoodLife that UsWeekly’s story is “totally fabricated.”  For some odd reason, we will choose to believe UsWeekly over Jill.

In other NYC news, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is angling to appear on broadway according to her rep, who tells RadarOnline LuAnn wants to expand her brand by taking to the stage.

“She’s very adventurous and wants to try something new,” her rep said. “She’s had a few meetings for a couple of potential Broadway projects, including ‘Chicago’ and ‘La Cage Aux Folles.’ It’s something she’s definitely looking into.”

The rep however adds LuAnn cannot officially do anything until she finishes filming the 4th season of the NYC Housewives in Januray.  Umm good luck with that Lulu.

Following the report weeks ago that Bravo had invited back all of the Real Housewives of New York City from season 3, Ramona Singer is now revealing which of her co-stars have accepted Bravo’s offer to return to the show!

Despite Kelly Bensimon and Jill Zarin’s proclamations on several occasions that they received unfair editing by Bravo, and that they were contemplating not coming back, Ramona tells PEOPLE magazine that both famewhores ladies will indeed be returning for season 4.

In fact, Ramona, 53, (Ramona’s 53? She looks great for her age) reveals all the ladies including Bethenny Frankel, Sonja Morgan, Alex McCord, Countess LuAnn, will be coming back. However, as we have previously reported, Bethenny will only make guest appearances on the season. “Bethenny will come on a little bit. We need a Bethenny moment,” said Ramona.

Also joining all the ladies pictured above will be a new housewife. Ramona confirms the news to UsWeekly that a new NYC housewife will be joining the cast when filming begins next week. “We have this new girl coming on. She is very happy with herself,” Ramona tells Usmagazine. “Not to say I’m not going to get pissed at her or have a fight with her about something — that’s just who I am sometimes! I can’t help it. But it’s better I tell it to your face then behind your back, right?”

Ramona also discusses Bethenny’s return to the show in her UsWeekly interview telling the site Bethenny will make “cameo appearances, just like I did on her show.” In true Ramona fashion, she seems to take a shot, perhaps an unintentional shot at Teresa Giudice when she adds, “We are intertwined in a sense. She proved to Bravo you don’t have to have table-flipping to get ratings.”

In other NYC news, The HollywoodReporter is reporting that Bethenny has began filming the second season of her hit spin-off show, Bethenny Getting Married, this week. This comes as no surprise as the show was a hit for Bravo, giving the network it’s highest rated series debut in its history. A source tells the site Bravo will likely change the name of the show.

While Bravo has reportedly invited all of the Real Housewives of New York City, excluding Jennifer Gilbert, back for a 4th season, it seems the housewives are a bit reluctant to sign the dotted line.

The NYPost is reporting that ladies are banding together, refusing to sign a new contract with the network unless they get more money. Jersey Shore money to be exact.

See, the Post states the ladies are earning a mere $4,000 per episode for their show, while MTV reality star Snooki earns $30,000 per episode on the Jersey Shore hit show.

They’ve got a lot more to say,” Jill Zarin a source close to the Housewives tells the Post, adding that the ladies “have little choice but to pimp themselves out with side gigs to bump up their earnings.”

“It’s a full-time job without the full-time pay,” a second source says. “That’s why a reality star with any sense does a book line or jewelry line to support being on the show.”

Well let’s examine things to see if the NYC ladies really deserve more money. The show averaged 2 million viewers per episode last season, while the Jersey Shore’s current season is averaging 5 million viewers. So simple calculation shows that solely based on the ratings, the ladies should be earning at least $12,000 per episode. Oddly enough, the Jersey Shore cast and the Real Housewives of NYC cast have about the same number of cast members.

Also, it is likely that Bethenny Frankel is not involved in this negotiation process with the other housewives. With the success of her spin off show, there’s a good chance her negotiations is being done solo and she will likely earn more money than her co-stars if and when she returns to the show. For example, TMZ reported Jersey Shore’s The Situation is earning $60,00o per episode on the show, way more than all of his other co-stars.

More crazy coming your way on the next season of the Real Housewives of New York City.

The NYDailyNews is reporting today that Bravo has asked back all of the ladies of last season with the exception of one. Who wasn’t asked back? Bethenny Frankel, who has been very vocal about not wanting to return to the show.

It seems Bravo is pleased and content with the success of Bethenny’s spin off show – Bethenny Getting Married, as she is currently filming a second season.

Now on to the shocker, which is the return of Kelly Bensimon, who famously had a mental breakdown last season, and has bashed the network for false editing and forcing her to go on the St. John trip. Even Bravo’s VP of programming, Andy Cohen, recently referred to Kelly’s breakdown as “deeply disturbing” in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine. But oh well, who cares! Evidently, crazy sells!

So if all the ladies accept Bravo’s offer, the 4th season of the NYC Housewives will include a cast of Kelly, Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and new housewife Sonja Morgan.

Both Jill and Kelly have mentioned uncertainty about returning for another season, but something tells us the two famewhores ladies will be back.

There’s no word on whether Jennifer Gilbert will be returning. The Daily News also mentions Bravo is interested in casting a certain nameless “wealthy Hamptons housewife.”

Is Countess LuAnn de Lesseps batting for both teams?

According to a new story by the Crazy Days and Nights blog, via the National Enquirer, the Real Housewives of New York City star is reported as being bisexual.

The Enquirer reports Countess LuAnn was at a club outside LA when she asked to borrow a cigarette from a young, tattooed, heavily pierced woman at the club. “LuAnn had a table and proceeded to feed the girl drinks, flirt and kiss for the rest of the night. She kept telling her how beautiful she was and how she reminded her of when she was younger. Her friends jokingly told LuAnn she was a lesbian cougar!”

Oddly enough, LuAnn is still dating boyfriend Jacques Azoulay and the two were just photographed at an event together on June 30th.  If this story is true, LuAnn would be joining the likes of Kim Zolciak and Danielle Staub, as part of the Bravo housewives who have taken or pretended to have taken a dip or two in the lady pond.

So is Luann really bisexual?  Or is this just a ploy to garner some publicity? Is the story even true, you know considering the source?  So many questions, so little time.
