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.
“I wish I could say I can see them being friends again, but I don’t think it’s going to happen,” says messengerAlex McCord, who explains that the falling out was much worse than what we’ve been seeing on the show. “Sometimes you find things out about people that you didn’t believe and glossed over,” shares Alex. “You get to a point where you just can’t do it anymore and it blows up in your face. There’s so much going on between Jill and Bethenny. You don’t see 80 percent of it on camera.”
Interesting point of view by Alex. Also joining in the Bethenny vs Jill conversation is Jill’s new underdog BFF Countess LuAnn: “I think there’s a certain sadness to the whole situation,” she said. “I don’t know if they’ll ever be BFFs again, but I think they will be cordial to each other.”
When asked about the criticism being thrown her way regarding her new song, ‘Money Can’t Buy You Class‘ (which I unfortunately found myself humming this morning as I tried to find something), LuAnn reveals she has a tough skin. “Darling, I’m a brave adventurous soul,” she says. “That’s why I’m doing a reality show…I just hope people kind of tip their hat to me for doing it.”
LuAnn also shares that her new boyfriend, French wine distributor Jacques Azoulay, is a fan of her ‘music.’ “He thinks it’s great,” LuAnn says. “He’s very proud of me for getting out there and flying by the seat of my pants.”

There seems to be something about having cameras around that makes certain people just want to make absolute asses fools of themselves. Case in point, Countess LuAnn De Lesseps of the Real Housewives of New York City, has decided to give Kim Zolciak some competition. For some reason, LuAnn has decided to embark on a music career despite being completely tone deaf and lacking any musical talent.
LuAnn’s first single, “Money Can’t Buy You Class,” hit the internet yesterday and in a new interview with PEOPLE today, LuAnn reveals she is shooting a music video for her song. A photo from her video shoot is below.
According to LuAnn, she is simply “trying to bring manners — and disco — back.” She tells PEOPLE. “When I made the song, I had dancing in Saint-Tropez in mind.”
And what does she think of the preview video Bravo has released showing her singing very off key? “I think [Bravo VP] Andy Cohen was mean to show a clip of me singing off key, but I’m a reality star; I don’t have the luxury that Beyoncé does to not show that footage.” Right LuAnn, because we’re all certain Beyonce sounds a lot like you in the studio and requires autotune to sound decent on a record.
Listen to “Money Can’t Buy You Class”
In the video, which has yet to be released, LuAnn can be seen rocking long hair (thanks to extensions) for the first time in 20 years. “There’s not really dancing,” she says of the video. “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.”
And we haven’t heard the last of LuAnn, her next single, “Chic, c’est la vie,” is set to be released in early May.

The third episode this season is set to air tonight. It’s officially fall in NYC and Kelly Bensimon has decided its best to tell her daughters about her upcoming Playboy shoot, you know on national television.
On the other side of town, LuAnn kicks off New York Fashion Week by hosting an event that all the Housewives attend…all except Bethenny and Ramona that is. Meanwhile, Bethenny takes time out of her busy schedule to attend a show during fashion week, when she runs into Jill, leading to a confrontation between the former BFFs.
Bravo held their 2010 Upfront Party at theSkylight Studio this week in NYC, and all of our favorite Housewives as well as other Bravolebrities were sure to be in attendance.
The upfront party is when Bravo announces what is to come during their next season of television.
OK magazine was there and was able to report some behind the scenes moments. Representing the Real Housewives of Orange County were Alexis Bellino, Lynne Curtin and Gretchen Rossi, who did not seem phased by their new competition – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The OC ladies joked that they did hear the Beverly Hills Housewives all have their own private jets.
The Real Housewives of NYC’s Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer and Alex McCord hit the red carpet together during which Jill would not reveal whether or not she and Bethenny will reconcile, simply saying “watch the show.”
Kelly Bensimon also hit the red carpet with LuAnn De Lesseps, and when asked how she thinks Bethenny will be as a mom, she replied, “I can’t really speak to that. I’m sorry.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta were the only housewives franchise to all walk the red carpet together. The Atlanta ladies are reportedly getting along better these days.
The second episode of the NYC Housewives titled “Dueling Labor Day Parties” airs tonight and we can expect another big blow up between Ramona and the Countess herself.
Tonight’s episode features the ladies in the Hamptons where it just so happens there are two big labor day parties happening at the same time. LuAnn doesn’t want to go to Ramona‘s party, due to “Countlessgate” — LuAnn confronted Ramona during the last episode about her husband Mario referring to her as being Countless.
This all leads to a big blow up, and we somehow end up with Ramona calling LuAnn a slut, a Countless slut to be politically correct. As expected, things take a turn for the worse from that point on. Most of the other housewives have all made comments at some point about LuAnn openly flirting with other men while she was still married.
Also happening tonight, Bethenny gets invited to dinner by her then boyfriend Jason Hoppy, during which he reveals he is not happy with their current living situation and then tells Bethenny he wants them to move in together. A preview clip of this is below -
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE NEW EPISODE OF THE NYC HOUSEWIVES?
Tonight is the long awaited and highly anticipated premier night of the Real Housewives of New York City, and the claws are set to come out in this third season opener.
Tonight’s episode will show most of the Housewives ganging up on the newly pregnant Bethenny Frankel. We will also see the widely reported rift between former BFFs, Bethenny, 39, and Jill Zarin. Apparently, things took a turn for the worse between the two when Bethenny told Jill she needed to find a new hobby and stop meddling in her life.
Then it’s Kelly Bensimon’s turn, and she has a big bone to pick with Bethenny after their very volatile relationship last season.
“She’s scary,” snaps Kelly. “I would never cross me because she’d attack me or say something bad. I was like, ‘that does not a friend make.’ It’s weird. That’s not a friend, that’s a foe. She’s got issues. I mean, come on, she ‘invented the margarita,’ says Kelly, taking a dig at Bethenny’s SkinnyGirl margarita franchise.
As we reported yesterday, it seems as the season moves along, it will become a Bethenny, Alex & Ramona team vs the Jill, LuAnn & Kelly team.
The third season premiers tonight at 10 p.m.ET on Bravo.
