It has been a rough couple of episodes for Real Housewives of New York‘s Luann de Lesseps. She’s been torn to shreds by her co-stars, but the Countess just keeps on ticking. In her side of this week’s episode she shares her zero effs attitude toward Bethenny Frankel’s words, her compassion for Sonja Morgan and more.
“Why do the girls care who I date or what I do with my private life? I’m living my life the way I choose and as long as I don’t harm anyone in the process, I say “chic ce la vie!” Dating is a game and flirting is part of it, but I’ve never tried to steal a man away from his woman. The fact that I have so many great girlfriends is proof that I respect other people’s relationships and that I’m a loyal friend. Sometimes, I think the girls confuse morality with jealousy.” (Ramona would disagree)
Luann blogs that she just lets Bethenny’s words roll off her back, “In the Berkshires, Bethenny tried to torch me with her words but I didn’t let her get under my skin. She looked like she felt terrible when she woke up the next morning with a cruelty hangover. She’s just an angry person, and there is nothing I can do to change that. I don’t let her words get to me, and I hope that after this tirade, she leaves her anger at the door.”
On Ramona’s accusations, “Let’s talk about Ramona saying that I hit on men she’s interested in. That’s just a joke. Ramona’s the one interested in the man I’m dating, which is very different than me being the man-stealer.”
She continues, “This trip to the Berkshires was a complete disaster and as much as I tried to ignore Bethenny’s attacks and Carole’s negativity towards me, eventually I couldn’t hide my frustration. How many times do I have to apologize to Bethenny and Carole? They obviously enjoy torturing me. I keep taking the high road even if it means repeating myself. In a final show of disrespect, Bethenny and Carole skipped out early and left their room a mess. I’m sure Dorinda was happy to see their taillights.”
On Ramona’s holiday party, she expresses her concern for Sonja Morgan, “Sonja promised Ramona and me that she would talk to Bethenny about her “Tipsy Girl” brand name, but she came to Ramona’s party late and Bethenny, true to her word, didn’t want to see her or talk to her. I understand why Sonja is frustrated with Bethenny, but I can also see why Bethenny is upset with the name “Tipsy Girl.” It’s a little too close and I suggested to Sonja that she change the name to something else. Sonja needs her friends more than ever, and she truly is lonely without her daughter at home. I feel her pain, and I understand how this is a scary time for her. She feels excluded by the other girls, and I think she’s had it with their judgmental attitudes. We all have our flaws!”
