Many people doubted that Luann de Lesseps could make a cabaret show work, but she’s had way more success with that than anyone has ever imagined. Sure, she’s not the best singer, but she knows that, and she really doesn’t care. She just loves having control of the microphone.
Now, the Real Housewives of New York OG wants to brush up on her dance moves. She wants to join the Dancing With the Stars cast for a super sweet reason that actually isn’t rooted in the cabaret… well, not completely.
Luann first expressed her interest in an Instagram video, where she said, “I know you don’t cast, Tyra [Banks], but sending this to you in case you know somebody. I want to learn how to do the cha-cha-cha.” I am all for this.
She told People, “I’ve always wanted to do Dancing with the Stars.” Luann and her mother watch the show together every week. She shared, “We love to talk about it. It’s our thing. I think that a lot of people bond over Housewives, but we bond over Dancing with the Stars.”
Luann added, “My mother is going to be 92 this December. So seeing me on the show would be her dream come true.” She said, “We especially love Tyra Banks as the new host! It would be awesome to work with her.”
The “Feelin Jovani” singer shared, “I feel like this would be the perfect place for me to improve my dancing. I’m in pretty good shape. I really take care of my body — I have to for my cabaret shows and my tour. So this would just be the icing on the cake for me.”
Luann even has her future partner in mind, revealing, “I’d personally want to dance with Gleb Savchenko, because he’s tall and he knows how to cha-cha-cha.” His wife just called him out for having multiple affairs throughout their marriage. This is a family show, so I wouldn’t be shocked if Gleb wasn’t asked back next season.
Aside from envisioning her possible dance partner, Lu already knows what she would wear. The Countess said, “I’d bring Jovani with me! They have a showroom in California and the dresses are pretty spectacular.” Of course.
