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.
A lot of your favorite reality TV stars were focused on the family time this week. Being mid-divorce did not stop Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Roger Mathewsfrom spending a Disney-themed day with their daughter.
A lot of your favorite reality TV stars enjoyed their Monday off for Memorial Day. Many of them shared photos hanging out with family and friends and sweet sentiments honoring the troops in their captions.
That last episode of Real Housewives of New York was just awkward to watch. It was clear that Dorinda Medleyhad a genuine interest in Bethenny Frankel’sdisaster relief work. Unfortunately, it just wasn’t a good look when she drank to the point of slurring at dinner with Bethenny’s team. She was the only cast member that Bethenny included and the trip wasn’t off to a great start.
During other scenes in the episode, post-divorce Luann de Lessepscontinued to move forward from her short-lived marriage with Tom D’Agostino. This show has been “about Tom” for years, so it might have been a relief for the spotlight to be on Dorinda during the episode.
LuAnn debuted her blonde hair last week during the premiere party for her latest video for the single Chic C’est La Vie. “I wanted to try something new,” said Lulu to Radar Online. “I’ve always wanted to be blonde. Every girl dreams of being blonde some time.”
LuAnn adds that she also made the change to look like a certain Miss Marilyn Monroe. “I wanted to look like Marilyn Monroe for a minute!” laughs LuAnn. “I’m definitely going to keep the new look for awhile.”
So does her beau Ross GellerJacques Azoulay approve? That answer is yes! “He’s having fun with this other woman,” she jokes. And the mane expert responsible for Lulu’s blonde hair, Ted Gibson, also spoke out on her new look. Ted believes this new look makes the Countess look much much younger. “I think she looks 20 years younger. It looks sexy and fresh,” said Ted. Uh uh.
LuAnn is pictured above with her two kids Noel de Lesseps and Victoria de Lesseps at the June 29 premiere of Cirque du Soleil ‘Zarkana.’
In other RHONY news, Jill Zarin made her acting debut yesterday on USA Network’s White Collar. Jill played a speed dater on the episode and according to critics, her performance was lackluster. Gawker describes Jill’s acting debut as “underwhelming,” and the Hollywood Reporter stated viewers were “bewildered” by Jill’s acting citing some of the twitter comments below –
Kiki (@kikinitwithkiki): “Jill Zarin on #WhiteCollar? Oh, Jill, don’t quit your day job. #RHONY”
Grace Yu (@graceyu): “Why is Jill Zarin on #whitecollar?”
Rachel Leigh (@TheRachelLeigh): “What the heck is jill zarin doing in an episode of white collar? Im a fan of jill but celebrity-wanna-be much? #sticktoyourdayjob.”
But we’ll let you be the judge. Below is the video of Jill’s cameo!
