Luann de Lesseps’ Co-Stars Are Sick Of Her Behavior; They Say “She Treats Us Like Fans”

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.

Real Housewives Of New York Recap: Life Is A Cabaret

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.

The NY Post is reporting that Victoria de Lesseps, daughter of Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, was quietly expelled from her private school months ago after a video of her rolling what appeared to be a joint and using a racial slur appeared online.

Sources tell the Post Victoria was asked to leave the Tony Ross School in the Hamptons after the video episode, but LuAnn denies the report to Page Six, instead stating Victoria left the school on her own.

The Real Housewives of NYC star’s rep tells the Post, “Your information is incorrect. Victoria withdrew from Ross School five months ago, but it was unrelated to the video. She is happily looking forward to studying art in Paris this summer.” When did this video come out you ask? Exactly five months ago but remember, it was completely unrelated.

In the video, which we were able to view before it was taken down from youtube, Victoria was video chatting with a friend before she started rolling what appeared to be a joint and continuously using the “n-word.” You can read more about that here. And days after the video leaked online, photos of the 16-year-old came out showing her drinking and smoking. LuAnn issued a statement back then calling her daughter’s actions “unacceptable.” Tuition at the private school is said to run upward of $45,000 a year.

Meanwhile, one of our readers alerted us to an old unflattering report from the NY Post about the Countess. See back in August 2008 (before our blog existed), the Post reported the Countess, along with her then husband the Count Alexandre de Lesseps, attended a wedding in the Hamptons and acted like a drunken mess in front of 200 guests.

The Post reported LuAnn yanked the mike away from Andy Hilfiger’s band and proceeded to sing two songs. “She knocked over the drum set while smiling at the horrified guests,” a source said.

Oh but if only it ended there. LuAnn then turned her attention to the poor unsuspecting guests. “She was trying to make out with women and married men,” the source said. “A pregnant wife caught her in the act, stormed off and walked home in disgust.” The Count “tried to make her leave and was seen throwing her to the ground in the parking lot,” the spy continued.

“She wasn’t just kissing the married men, she was also grabbing their [crotches],” another witness told the Post. Yikes! And while LuAnn and her husband denied the allegations to the Post, the groom stated, “At these parties, people always get frisky. All I can say is that she didn’t try to grab me.”

Less than a year later, LuAnn would go on to write a book about class and etiquette. You know what they say dahling — “Money Can’t Buy You Class.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON BOTH OF THE REPORTS BY THE POST? SHOCKED BY LUANN’S PAST BEHAVIOR?

The Countess has a new man! Countess LuAnn de Lesseps of the Real Housewives of New York City confirmed to PEOPLE magazine that she is dating French wine distributor Jacques Azoulay, pictured above.

“I feel very lucky,” the recently divorced LuAnn told People. “We met at a party for a friend of mine who is a singer. The first time I saw him, I was like, ‘Wow!’ He’s a wow kind of guy. He’s just lovely.”

Things seem to have gotten serious between the two as LuAnn reveals she recently met his family. “I just got back from Paris for Valentine’s Day. We went to see the parts of Paris that Jacques grew up in … it went very well. [His family are] very nice people, lovely people.”

“I feel very lucky, I never thought I would be lucky enough to find somebody like that again in my life,” continued LuAnn.

LuAnn and her ex-husband of 16 years, Count Alexandre de Lesseps split last year after he dumped her via email to begin dating an Ethopian Princess. They have two children – Noel, 12, and Victoria, 14.

The singing bug has bitten another housewife as Countess LuAnn de Lesseps of the Real Housewives of NYC is the latest housewife to announce she wants a singing career.

According to E! News, LuAnn has already written and recorded a song titled “Money Can’t Buy Class,” a dance song inspired by her memoir/etiquette book Class With the Countess. LuAnn is however claiming she isn’t taking the singing thing too seriously, “I’m not trying to be Madonna, but I love to sing, and I can sing,” she says. “I sing all the time for my friends.”

So who would the Countess like to duet with? You will be surpised by LuAnn’s answer – “I want to work with Akon,” she said. “I love Akon. I saw him perform at the Apollo Theater. I took my daughter to see him because she’s such a huge fan, and I realized how great he was.”

When asked if a duet with Atlanta housewife Kim Zolciak is in the future, the Countess gave a somewhat polite answer. “I can’t see myself teaming up with her for a duet,” LuAnn said. “I think I’m going to fly solo for the moment.”

LuAnna also reveals she is dating again after her highly publicized split from husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps, who left her for an Ethopian princess last year. “I’m going slowly, but I’m very happy,” she said. “I’m finally ready to move forward. It’s taken a long time, and I’ve been through a lot, but I have been dating.”

She confirms some of her dating escapades will make it on to the 3rd season of the Real Housewives of New York City.
