Real Housewives of New York Recap: War And P.O.S.

All of the cast members are bringing their A game on the current season of Real Housewives of New York– something the Beverly Hills Housewives should take note of. Nevertheless, the true MVP is Luann de Lesseps.

The former countess is the gift that keeps on giving. She has blessed us with so much: a quickie marriage and divorce, culturally insensitive hairstyles, three songs on iTunes (and a Pandora station), her Christmas Eve arrest, a rehab stint, and so much more. On top of that, she has her ups and downs with the rest of the cast. She truly is an all star in this franchise.

During an interview for Bravo’s The Daily Dish podcast, Luann was complimented on her Season 10 tagline: “The most interesting people make the best headlines.” The words are just so on point and the perfect lead-in for this season, but Luann didn’t want that as her tagline. In fact, she didn’t even know it was her tagline.

Luann asked, “Is that what my tag line is? I thought it was ‘From headlines to a headliner, life is a cabaret.’ I think you’re wrong.” The podcast host was not wrong, but Luann said, “What? I did say it twice and then I said I wanted to use the other one.”

Even though Luann infamously bragged about having three songs on iTunes and a Pandora station, she admitted, “When I sang to Bethenny [Frankel] I was horrible. I was wasted.” And it was perfect- at least to me.

Yes, Luann is the hot topic of conversation these days, but it’s definitely been a tough year for her. She was asked, “Who has shown the most support since December?” Surprisingly enough, she shared, “All the girls have been so supportive. I must say they could have been like ‘I told you so’ and all that kind of stuff and they weren’t really.”

Luann added, “I think they knew that I had suffered a lot. Even the Housewives didn’t want to kick a dog when it was down. It was refreshing.”

Luann was pleasantly surprised by the ladies’ reaction to her divorce news, but it doesn’t seem like she wants to run into Tom D’Agostino any time soon. She shared, “I’m friends with my first ex-husband, so hopefully I will get there one day. Well, not really.” So I guess we are done with Real Housewives of New York being all “about Tom.”

What can we expect from the rest of the season? Luann shared, “You’re gonna see me struggle, but I think you’ll be happy for me at the end.”
