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.
Summer 2019 is not here, officially, but plenty of your favorite reality TV stars celebrated the season early. OK! Magazine hosted a Summer Kick-Off Paty in New York City. So, of course, that means some Real Housewives of New York stars attended.
Not all of them though. Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer were all there to celebrate. The RHONY ladies weren’t the only Bravolebrities there though.
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!
Mercedes “MJ” Javid has been making up for lost time. The Shahs of Sunset star finally settled down and married Tommy Feight last year. Then they quickly got moving and tried to get pregnant through IVF. Didn’t they want to enjoy the honeymoon phase just for a bit?
Luckily for MJ, she was able to get pregnant. Unfortunately, it wasn’t without several complications along the way. Such as a miscarriage scare and several bouts of bed rest. Then when MJ gave birth to her son, she almost had a near death experience! However, this isn’t stopping MJ from already wanting to expand her brood.
Do you ever watch reality TV and feel like the cast members are friends in your head? How about the parents? Do you ever watch and wonder what it would be like to have them as a mom? Just me? Alright, then.
I cannot help being fascinated by the relationships between reality TV stars and their mothers. Not all moms are created equal and not everyone is meant to be a reality TV star. Some of them are just hilarious. They steal every scene and deserve to star in shows of their own. It gets to a point with some of these cast members that it seems like their moms are the reason they’re still on TV. I don’t want to call anyone out, but when your mom gets her own on-camera interviews on your show, she’s definitely stealing your shine. Whether she’s trying to or not.
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.
