Luann de Lesseps has gotten fiesty this season – particularly on twitter. The Real Housewives Of New York star is in the midst of a very public falling-out with Carole Radziwill and has taken to lobbing some excoriating tweets at her former friend while the episodes air. Carole rebutted by accusing Luann of having a twitter-ghostwriter named “Daniel.” Well Luann is setting the record straight!
“Every single thought is mine, word for word! I may not cook my own meals some times, but I certainly write my own thoughts,” LuAnn declares.
And Luann is pointing out the irony that the ghostwriter accusation is now on the other foot (pun intended there – I’ll be here all week folks!). “The idea that Carole, of all people, is accusing me of using a ‘ghostwriter’ is as laughable as it is pathetic,” Luann seethes. “It might seem out of character for me, as some would say, because I haven’t been this upset with a cast member since Ramona [Singer] was being a nightmare. (Back then, I wasn’t as engaged with social media as I am now.).”

As for her newly active social media presence, the countess owes it all to new castmate Dorinda Medley! “I took to Twitter originally as a friendly challenge by Dorinda who practically has a running commentary during each episode,” explains Luann. “I figured I have plenty to be vocal about this season regarding Carole and Heather [Thomson], in particular, and this will be a great way to engage fans of the show.”
Also loving the heated online exchanges is of course Andy Cohen! “Andy certainly loves it. He says he’s ‘obsessed’ with all of us tweeting and I think Dorinda should take the credit for getting us involved.”
So who exactly is this Daniel that Carole speaks of? “‘Daniel’ is a branding consultant and producer who’s been working with me and my team as I continue growing my brand,” Luann tells AllthingsRH.com. “Carole’s met him (and, of course, flirted with him too) while we were at CBS for the press tour. Ironically, he helped HER figure something out with HER social media that day. She’s right – he IS very nice – but doing live tweeting for a housewife on a Tuesday night is way below his pay grade. I’m beginning to think Adam is folding gummy bears into every one of Carole’s private meals, to be honest.” BURRRRRN – hopefully Carole doesn’t barf all over Daniel’s lap next!
