Luann de Lesseps is defending Jules Wainstein against the constant speculation of Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel. Luann accuses them of being boring and calls them out for being unkind knowing Jules has an eating disorder. 

Luann also dishes on the reunion, her current relationship with Bethenny, and why certain Real Housewives Of New York cause problems with everyone.

Luann was a guest on Wake Up With Taylor and Taylor, the host, wanted the skinny on all things RHONY – particularly why Bethenny was so itching to fight with everyone! Taylor was particularly aggrieved by how Jules has been vilified by Bethenny and Carole about weight – especially when they’re so skinny themselves. 

“Oh I know!” laughs Luann. “Remember when [Bethenny] wore her daughter’s pajamas? She was five at the time! And she’s gonna talk about Jules being too thin? I mean, c’mon – gimme a break!” 

Taylor wonders if they’re projecting their own issues or feelings onto Jules. Luann clarifies that she doesn’t believe Bethenny or Carole have an eating disorder. 

“I don’t know if it’s a projection. I think they are waify; there’s no doubt that Bethenny and Carole are skinny as can be,” Luann agrees. “They’re shorter and whatever. And there’s no mistake that Jules says, ‘I have an eating disorder.’ I think they’re two different things.” 

“I feel that when somebody has a problem, to be picked on is certainly not the way to help them,” Luann continues. “So I disagree with them dissing her and her weight, and kind of, not being more aware of it and sympathetic towards her. So I didn’t like that. I didn’t like all the picking that went on and then they picked on her house and then they picked on her husband…”

Taylor questions Bethenny’s motives for going after everyone over their “struggles” all season, and for trying to destroy Luann and Tom. Taylor accuses Bethenny of doing for attention. “She’s a reality star,” Luann denigrates. “If you wanna be good at reality, you have to be the center of attention…”

Luann dubs Bethenny “the Susan Lucci of Housewives” because she causes problems with everyone. 

“It’s not scripted, but it is produced and edited, as you know, so they trump up the game with their drama,” Luann shrugs. “So the drama happens to be about Tom and I, because guess what: they have nothing else going on in their lives. Bethenny has her tumors… It’s so pathetic!” 

Switching gears to the reunion, Luann had a fine old time. “I loved the reunion!” she claps. “It was my chance to set the record straight.” 

“I always go into the reunion with ‘I have the truth on my side,’ and I feel like if you tell the truth then you can’t go wrong, right?” explains Luann. “It’s hard to remember the lies – the truth you can’t forget.” Interesting statement coming from the Countess who is constantly being called out by her co-stars for lying about her life and her exploits…

“For me it’s kind of like going to the play-off’s,” she continues, laughing, “I get excited about it – like I’m ready for battle!”
