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.
The buzzword for the Real Housewives of New York this season has been “cabaret.” If Luann de Lesseps is not promoting her cabaret act, another cast member is talking about it. On this week’s episode, Dorinda Medley, Tinsley Mortimer and Bethenny Frankel even thought about using “cabaret” as the secret word to drink on at Luann’s new house. Which might not be so appropriate at the home of a newly recovering alcoholic. But, as they say, life is a cabaret!
Before Luann was an internationally famous cabaret star, she was just a simple girl trying to promote her music career and become the Autotune Queen of the Dance Charts. Although Luann had some past success with the song Money Can’t Buy You Class, she never really reached the heights of music superstardom. Now, Luann is launching a new single in her quest for fame and the music video for it is starring a few of our very own Housewives.
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!
You might remember Real Housewives of New York star, Bethenny Frankel, was married for a hot minute. Well, it was long enough to get a spin-off… If you blinked, you missed Bethenny and her five seconds of wedded bliss with Jason Hoppy. The former couple shares a daughter, Bryn, who is the subject of a nasty custody battle. So far, Bryn has grown up only knowing of her parents fighting and harassing each other.
Since 2013, Bethenny and Jason have engaged in mutual mudslinging in a courtroom war that has outlasted their actual marriage. Neither party seems willing to compromise. Currently, Bethenny wants sole custody of her daughter. After throwing down some heavy accusations on Jason’s alleged nasty attitude, Bethenny was recently forced to evaluate some of her own nasty attitudes. You know, because she is consistently filmed yelling at people on a television show.
Last week’s Real Housewives of Potomac season premiere set the stage for a drama-filled season. The cookie moment between Gizelle Bryant and Karen Huger was iconic. It’s so fun watching those two ladies try to outdo each other in the shade department. We also got that NASTY scene with Michael and Ashley Darby that our eyes can never unsee. We deserve a public apology for that moment.
The drama between Candiace Dillard and her mom looked like it might spoil her big day. Her mom simply did not want her half brother there. Last week they fought over the situation, but surely they won’t fight at the wedding right? Her mom is her own biggest fan, so she might want to put the spotlight on herself. I cannot wait for this roller coaster wedding episode with the entire cast present.
Mother’s Day is right around the corner. Did you remember? Hopefully. If you didn’t, it’s not too late to get her the perfect gift though. This is especially true if she is a reality TV fanatic just like you are.
There are many products made by and inspired by your favorite reality TV stars that would be perfect Mother’s Day gifts. It gets better though. They are all available on Amazon. This means you can ship them ASAP
and cover your ass if you forgot about the holiday. If you’re reading this way too late in the game, you can just use Prime Shipping to get gifts to her as close to the holiday as you can. If you really have to you can blame the lateness on shipping delays if you didn’t shop in time.
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.
