Luann de Lesseps Breaks Down The Berkshires Weekend: “Bethenny Is A Hypocrite”

Can I Just Have My Hair Back Please?

Have you recovered from Nightmare On Dorinda’s Street yet? Well, apparently, Luann de Lesseps has! Because she breezes through her blog this week on the wings of a bird who got sniped a few times, but eventually broke free from the cage of horrors that was The Real Housewives of New York

Bottom line: Luann thinks Bethenny Frankel had it out for her from the very start. She accuses, “From the get-go, Bethenny decided that I was her prey and she was going to kill me with words. Obviously she’s been harboring a lot of anger towards me. I was surprised as I spent a lot of time with her over the summer, and she never shared her feelings with me. In fact, we talked about it at the beginning of the season, and she’s still holding a grudge.”


Luann also defends herself against Bethenny’s friend’s accusation. “Her friend that supposedly saw Tom and I reconnecting at the Mark Hotel made up that I said, ‘I’m next’ in regards to his dating Ramona [Singer]. At that time, I didn’t know that Tom had casually dated Ramona. Tom and I were both single at the time and dating.”

In love, engaged, and happy, Luann gushes about how her relationship with Tom actually began – despite ridiculous rumors that she “stole” him from Turtle Time! “I knew immediately after meeting Tom that this was going to be a long-lasting relationship. I didn’t feel that I had to ask Ramona’s permission to date Tom as they obviously were not dating. We’ve been inseparable since we met, and that was before Thanksgiving.”

“So all of these accusations that I’m dating married men are slanderous and not true,” blogs Luann. “The truth is that I was only dating single, available men, and Bethenny is a hypocrite for calling me out for dating married men. This article came out in February?”

Not one to let a good soundbite bit go, Luann snarks, “Let’s talk about Bethenny’s hair. Come on! Really? It looks exactly like mine. I’m flattered that she likes my style.” So, will this lead to Luann’s next music single!? Bish Stole My Bob!

Calling out Dorinda Medley next, Luann argues, “I think that hostesses have a responsibility to manage their guests, so when I talked to Jules [Wainstein] on Dorinda’s front porch, I was still reeling from my encounter with Bethenny. I realize now that she was distracted with her father’s health issues and that I should have been more empathetic to what was going on with her instead of focusing on me, but I was under attack. She’s right, fighting with Bethenny is not life and death, it’s optional!”

Next, Luann explains her apologies – via text – to both Carole Radziwill and Bethenny. And why she thinks Carole is NEVER going to let her grudge go. “When I’m wrong, I admit it, and I sent Carole a text re-apologizing for things I’ve said in the past. To Bethenny, I sent a text saying I was sorry if I miscommunicated my role in naming her brand. I was there with her at the time and that is all I was saying. As for Carole, I don’t know what else I can do if she doesn’t accept my apology. I was ready to move on, and I was trying to salvage what was left of the weekend.”

Lastly, Luann ultimately apologizes to Dorinda for insulting her mom’s birthday cake. The Countess admits it just wasn’t a cool move. She explains, “Had I known the back-story on the cake, I would have never have kidded her about it. Mothers are sacred even in Housewives territory. Amen.”
