There is no question that Dorinda Medley is living her best life right now on Real Housewives of New York. She managed to put her differences with cabaret star Luann de Lesseps in her rear view. Last season Dorinda drunkenly heckled Luann at Luann’s cabaret debut by screaming “Jovani! Jovani!” So, Luann banned Dorinda from Barbara Kavovit’s clam bake.
When Dorinda once again hosted the ladies at her home in the Bezerkshires, she graciously accepted Countess Luann’s list of requirements. Dorinda arranged yoga and a massage for Luann. When Luann had a temper tantrum because she didn’t want to sleep in the infamous fish room, Dorinda plopped Barbara in the room instead. Dorinda spent $250,000 to display these taxidermy fishes. Don’t these ladies realize how hard Dorinda worked at making this room nice?
Oh Real Housewives Of New York don’t ever change. Do I open ever recap with this sentence? But seriously Real Housewives Of New York spirals through cycles of emotions faster than a Cathy cartoon about dating and PMS, and I don’t want it any other way.
Anytime you take these ladies anywhere – even to the doctor; even to the nail salon; even to Luann de Lesseps‘ yardsale in the Hamptons, they exist in their own self-contained orbit of revolving arguments, makeups, friendships, feuds, hurt feelings, men… Like a drunken comet hurtling towards church here they come, slathered in statement necklaces and macrame, and shedding skin from laser facials, and shedding tears from all the people who have wronged them first leading them hear to a sky-high tolerance for emotional instability and pain. And hell hath no fury like a group of middle-aged women scorned, with nothing else to lose. Amen, sistas. A-MEN, but you don’t need ’em cause you have each other. (And cheesecake on the lanai, of course).
Real Housewives of New York’s Luann de Lesseps has been in all sorts of trouble since her divorce from Tom D’Agostino. Luann was arrested in Palm Beach on Christmas Eve in 2017. She was charged with trespassing in a hotel room, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence, and other charges.
To add to her legal issues, Luann was sued by her ex-husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps and her two children. Luann was supposed to put half of the funds from the sale of the family’s home in Bridgehampton into a trust for her two kids. She didn’t. In April of 2019, the suit was dropped. Barbara Kavovit and “OG” Bethenny Frankel took part in an intervention that resulted in Luann returning to rehab over the summer.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of New York, the women traveled upstate – like way upstate – to have another intervention with Luann de Lesseps. This time about how her cabaret has become unmanageable and out of control.
Sonja Morgan rides to Luann’s Catskills home in the equivalent of a private jet on wheels. Basically, a camper van repurposed into a luxury hotel room. It still has more amenities than the townhouse, though, because it features a working toilet!
Tonight the Real Housewives Of New York travel to Kingston, NY to visit Luann de Lesseps‘ “round house,” you know cause round things don’t have sharp edges, but they do have CABARET STARS. Which is worse: rooming with dead fish or feathers?
I am really hoping Round & Round & Round We Go Cottage is going to become The Berkshires Round 2! At the very least I’m excited to check out the subject of Luann’s lawsuit!
Real Housewives Of New York is like being in city traffic and hearing a loud bang and not knowing where it came from and whether or not it’s a gun going off, a car backfiring, or Ramona Singer exploding in your face.
Luann de Lesseps is in full hoity-toity mode. Cabaret Star has replaced Countess as Luann’s new schtick, and she invited all the girls to a Halloween party where she’s performing. The theme is insane asylum – perfect for this group! Luann is dressed as a sexy nurse, but Bethenny Frankel comes as a slutty guardian angel, aka Luann’s savior. Was that shady or unintentional?
Luann’s performance is supposed to start at 11, but of course, the Countess is late, girls! After waiting around for 2 hours, when Luann couldn’t even come down to say hello, or invite them backstage to her dressing room, Bethenny leaves explaining that her babysitter is expecting her.
What would the Real Housewives of New York be without Sonja Morgan? No matter how rough the going gets between the ladies, Sonja is always ready with a little comedy, a little drama, and a little stirring of the pot. This season, we have witnessed Sonja have a booze-fueled Morgan Memories breakdown at Blue Stone Manor and also steal the show from Tinsley Mortimer at the Big Apple Circus. Sonja was even feted as the cover girl at a Paper Magazine party.
And it was at that same party that something a little unusual happened. OK-lets be honest-Sonja and practically everything about her is a “little unusual”-but at the party, a seemingly random woman came up and kissed her-passionately. And Sonja didn’t really seem to mind. A bit. Was this some overly enthusiastic fan? An attention-getting set-up by Ms. Morgan? We’ll probably never know. But we are now getting more of the details on Sonja’s real views about dipping into the lady pond. And they might surprise you.
Life may be a cabaret for Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps, but that may be leading her down the wrong path. Back in December of 2017, Luann was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida on charges of disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence, crimes against a person, and battery on an officer. Luann was found in someone else’s hotel room and refused to leave. This was her first time back in Palm Beach since her marriage to husband Tom D’Agostino. The duo called it quits after seven months, and tons of cheating allegations.
Then, Luann was sued by her two children and her ex-husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps for violating a divorce agreement. The family’s home in Bridgehampton was sold for $8 million dollars. Luann purchased a house in Sag Harbor for $3.1 million dollars. Luann was supposed to take half of the money from the Bridgehampton sale and create a trust for her children, Victoria de Lesseps and Noel de Lesseps. Unfortunately, she never did.
