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.

On last night’s Real Housewives Of New York, the subject on everyone’s lips was blood and Luann de Lesseps. Does Luann have blood on her hands for ruining the group in her refusal to play the role of Bethenny Frankel‘s sycophant? Well, it appears none of that matters quite so much in the wake of Bethenny‘s health issue.

I don’t even think Luann made an appearance last night, but she was revived with her own ‘Before They Were Housewives’ special which aired after the show and my has she had quite a fascinating life.

Anyway, unfortunately, both Bethenny and Jules Wainstein spent their off-hours at Lenox Hill Hospital getting their vaginal areas investigated and mended. More on that later…



After tonight’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny Frankel made a stop at the clubhouse to chat with Andy Cohen about her Berkshires meltdown, Jules Waintstein’s divorce, her medical issues and more.

Andy starts off asking if Bethenny noticed that Luann de Lesseps has her name misspelled in her phone? “Well, I don’t have to, I have Twitter for that. I didn’t notice but so many people did. It’s so funny the things people pick up on.” Was she surprised by that after all these years of being friends? “No. Maybe she had it like that originally, I don’t know. I don’t really think about things like that.”


The ladies are really bringing it on the current season of Real Housewives of New York. Every episode is more ridiculous than the one before. I don’t know about you, but I’ll never get over the weird love square between Luann de Lesseps, her fiance Tom D’Agostino, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan. I still can’t believe that Luann found her “soulmate” and got engaged within eight weeks. 

I feel like no matter how “cool” Luann claims to be in regard to Tom getting with two other cast members, it is still weird. And I can’t imagine Sonja and Ramona thought it was cool either. Since Sonja got with Tom first, I wondered if Ramona followed suit to get revenge on her frienemy turned enemy, but apparently she had no idea about Sonja’s history with Tom.


Bethenny Frankel radio show

During the last episode of Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny Frankel told Luann de Lesseps that she was late to get drinks because she was profusely bleeding. She did not know what was causing the issue, but she mentioned that she was going to get it checked out.

That sounds very serious. Bethenny‘s mystery illness was highlighted in the trailer and it looks like the viewers will find out what’s going on with her pretty soon. What has been going on with the skinnygirl’s health these days?

Kelly Bensimon has lived quite a life as a model, famous photographer’s wife, mother, designer, fashion icon and trend-setter. She has overcome numerous obstacles all while living with the scrutiny of the public eye – including the very negative judgement she faced on and after Real Housewives Of New York. Kelly is now chronicling her experiences through her first novel, A Dangerous Age

“I love things that are imperfect, that have flaws,” muses Kelly. “Everything has a story. Just because it’s not perfect doesn’t mean it doesn’t have an amazing story. It usually does.” 


Jules is fed up with Michael

This Jules Wainstein divorce saga is getting more dramatic by the day and I feel like it just barely got started. And it was all “coincidentally” timed to line up with the one episode that shows Michael Wainstein’s obvious flaws as a husband and the cracks in their marriage.

It was super awkward to watch in general- let alone in light of the divorce announcement and the subsequent drama. Jules said that they split because Michael was cheating on her. Jules called the cops on Michael after an altercation in their home. Michael denied cheating on her and blamed the show for their split. So naturally, the Real Housewives of New York fans want to know what the other Housewives have to say- especially Dorinda Medley since she’s been friends with Jules the longest.
