The mama-bear in Bethenny Frankel was definitely triggered when Luann de Lesseps questioned her reasons for leaving the Halloween night performance early. Of course, the show was running a half hour late, but regardless. The Countess delivered somewhat of an apology but the other Real Housewives of New York, including Bethenny, are questioning the sincerity of it.
It’s a bit ironic to be questioning Bethenny’s parenting given Luann’s legal issues with her own grown children. And many seasons ago, Luann’s son Noel de Lesseps was begging her to spend more time with him. That was back when she was really a Countess, but just as self-absorbed.
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.
It has been a hard knock life for Luann de Lesseps lately. No one will ever forget the Real Housewives of New York star’s arrest Christmas Eve 2017 in Palm Beach. A wild evening that resulted in charges of battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and crimes against a person. A one-woman game of thrones!
Luann also had legal troubles closer to home. Call it Game of Homes! Luann was being sued by her ex-husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps for allegedly violating a divorce agreement and stealing from their children Victoria de Lesseps and Noel de Lesseps. The suit arose from a sale of the family’s home in Bridgehampton for $8 million dollars and the star’s purchase of a smaller house in Sag Harbor for $3.1 million. As per the divorce decree, Luann was to set up a trust for the children funded from half of the Bridgehampton sale. Apparently, 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 Mathews from spending a Disney-themed day with their daughter.
Atlanta Housewife Kandi Burruss, her husband Todd Tucker, and her stepdaughter Kaela crashed her son Ace Tucker’s first school trip.
Teen Mom cast member Javi Marroquin practiced smiling for school pictures with his son Lincoln.
The family that gets extensions together, stays together right? Obviously that isn’t the old adage or even a saying at all, but if it was it would be applicable to Don’t Be Tardy stars Kim Zolciak and her daughters Brielle Biermann and Ariana Biermann.
Below Deck Mediterranean cast members Hannah Ferrier and Colin Macy-O’Toole both shared photos from Monaco. Could this mean that they are both filming Season 4 of the show? Let’s hope so.
When it comes to Real Housewives comebacks, Luann de Lesseps is up there with the best of them. After a short marriage, drunken arrest, rehab stint, a lawsuit from her ex-husband Alex de Lesseps and children Victoria de Lesseps and Noel de Lesseps, and second rehab stint, Luann is back on stage for her cabaret show Countess and Friends.
Not only that, but now Luann is joking about her recent hard times- the rehab stint and the lawsuit from her own family members- in her cabaret act.
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 Medley had a genuine interest in Bethenny Frankel’s disaster 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 Lesseps continued 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.
