Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps hung out with Andy Cohen and Kate Chastain last night on Watch What Happens Live. She shared wedding details and her hopes for reconciling with Bethenny Frankel and more.
Andy starts off asking Lu some questions about her upcoming wedding. Luann says the date is still set for New Year’s Eve. She says that they have about 250 guest expected for the wedding. She’s still planning to sing for Tom, but wouldn’t reveal if it was going to be an original song or a cover. Luann says her former housekeeper Rosie won’t be there, but she is inviting Jacques. Luann also shared that Tom met The Count this summer at a wedding in Switzerland and they really liked each other. She says they didn’t register anywhere but are asking for anyone wanting to give them a gift, to donate to charity (The American Cancer Society).
The first caller asks Luann what she would say to Bethenny if she was sitting right next to her at that moment. “I would say, why are you so focused on me? And why would you try to slut shame someone, it’s so horrible. We’ve known each other for a long time, so it makes me sad that she’s so angry with me for no apparent reason. I’m getting married too quick for her taste. I don’t understand why she’s been so angry from the very beginning. I just hope that we can have a friendship again at some point.”
Andy asks if that’s a real possibility. Luann says, “I hope so. You know, she said a lot of horrible things to me. I’m happy. I wake up happy every day. I hope the same happiness for her. I’m getting married, she’s in a relationship. Move on. The rear-view mirror is smaller than the windshield for a reason. I don’t look in the past, I look forward to the future.” Andy asks if she just made that saying up and she says that it’s actually one of Tom’s sayings. (Move over, Brooks Ayers, there’s a new Hallmark guy in town.)
Does Luann have any regrets about being so mad at Carole for dating Adam? “I regret the disruption it made in our friendship, absolutely. But at the time I was upset because it was a family thing. We’ve totally moved on from that.”
