Luann de Lesseps is a maven of cabaret. She a current star of Real Housewives of New York. And, not for nothing, Luann is also cool – not all like, uncool. Luann is also very unlucky in love, it seems. When Lu joined RHONY, she was… THE COUNTESS. She was married to Alex de Lesseps, a real live French diplomat who may or may not have ditched Luann for an Ethiopian princess. Lu licked her wounds and eventually moved on to another Frenchman, Jacques Azoulay. We all loved French Ross Geller and it appeared Lu did too – until a rogue pirate in St. Barths with a penchant for guyliner put more than a kink in their relationship.
Somehow Luann eventually found herself involved with
douche CEO Tom D’Agostino. Tom, much like Harry Dubin, made himself a regular fixture on the Housewives dating circuit. Unfortunately for Luann, their dating lead to engagement, which lead to Luann going off the rails. In the wake of Luann’s affair of the heart and Tom’s affair in general, Lu’s mind was less on relationships and more on not getting arrested again. After trying her luck on a dating site, Lu met personal trainer Garth Wakeford. Now, after several months of going out, we learn Garth is partying on without Luann.
This show … I just can’t get enough of Real Housewives Of New York! From Leah McSweeney instructing Tinsley Mortimer to go gangster – or “Cardi Llama” on Dorinda Medley; to Ramona Singer‘s condom situations, to the Russian baths with ginger vodka and Luann de Lesseps‘ bush coming back to haunt her. RHONY is the glimmer of unstoppable hope for Real Housewives everywhere. May you never change, no matter how far you stray uptown.
So on that note, Leah, Luann, and Tinsley are all sick after their day at the orchards. Well, I think we know where Coronavirus started! The Countesses’ cough. This is an unlikely trifecta for a brunch date, Luann is a surprisingly good foible for Leah and Tinsley. Also Luann looks phenomenal. She is literally aging backwards as she struts up to the table like someone told her the sidewalk was a cabaret stage. All the world’s a stage, darlings!
Tinsley is late, and when she arrives, she is distraught. Is Tinsley every any other way? Dale Mercer clearly didn’t warn Tinsley that her face would freeze this way, because it has.
According to Ramona Singer all the ladies on Real Housewives Of New York are going through a transition, and have found themselves single. Which is true. Before Dorinda Medley dumped John Mahdessian, she was the only woman on this show in a relationship. Unless you count Tinsley Mortimer dating “Bruce.”
Who does Tinsley think she’s fooling? Bruce was a made-up man to shut Dale Mercer up and hopefully make Scott Kluth jealous.
Anyway, it’s fall in New York and the weather is wonderful so all the ladies are meeting outside in various parks to take walks and gossip. If this were a RomCom they’d keep bumping into each other on random benches and eventually fall in love. But this is Real Housewives, so if they ran into each other on random benches they’d actually just find the other person talking shit about them to their other friends, then they’d fall into hate.
Oh, Real Housewives Of New York, you never fail to disappoint. Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile? Well it’s you girl[s], and you should know it!
Love may not be all around, though, but the opposite of love and just as passionate, is hate which is aplenty! Especially when it comes to Dorinda Medley‘s passionate animosity towards Tinsley Mortimer. Seriously – whaaaaat? Hating Tinsley is like hating the lone sock floating around the laundry forever without a mate. Hating Tinsley is like resenting an earring back that doesn’t quite fit snugly to any of your earrings. Hating Tinsley is like going to Costco and getting stuck bad samples.
What I mean is that none of these things should generate strong enough feelings to reach the intensity of anger Dorinda has towards Tinsley. Because what Dorinda truly hates is that her life has gone on without Richard andis no longer the fairy tale it was.
Most Real Housewives of New York viewers thought Luann D’Agostino was going to marry Jacques Azoulay since they dated for years, but we all know how that ended up and we haven’t heard a peep from Jacques since that breakup. That might change though. Apparently Jacques and his current lady, Missy Hargraves, are trying to get their own reality show.
File this one under “things nobody asked for.” Not only that, but it never seemed like Jacques was into the reality TV thing when he was with Luann so this seems pretty random.
Luann de Lesseps is officially a married woman again! Which now makes her Luann D’Agostino! As planned, the former Countess tied the knot with Tom D’Agostino Jr. with a New Year’s Eve wedding in Miami.
Naturally Luann had plenty of Housewives, past and present, as guests, but none of her Real Housewives Of New York co-stars, except for Dorinda Medley who was a bridesmaid.

First of all when I am 50, I hope and pray I look as fabulous as Luann de Lesseps. Oh did I mention – Lu turned 50 and celebrated her birthday this past weekend with friends – and her ex-boyfriend Jacques Azoulay!
Despite the fact that Jacques threw the Real Housewives Of New York star’s “Fifty Shades Of Fabulous” birthday fete, Luann insists the two have remained friends and there is no rekindling of romances, but they certainly looked cozy in photos from Luann’s celebration!

The Real Housewives of New York co-stars LuAnn de Lesseps and Heather Thomson (our favorites this season!) sat down with Buzzfeed to dish about everything from their shoe size to Jacques breaking his nose in tae kwon do! The ladies hit on many of their Housewives-related favorites and it has us questioning their sanity a little.
LuAnn is first to dish that Melissa Gorga is her favorite singing Housewife! When asked what her favorite original song was, LuAnn responded "The girl from New Jersey, Melissa Gorga. She’s not bad. If I have to pick one." Heather remained loyal to Lu and said, “Money Can’t Buy You Class”! I mean, who can beat “Money Can’t Buy You Class”?? Any LuAnn de Lesseps song, she’s the only singing housewife for me."
