The good folks of San Francisco turned out in droves this weekend to take part in Pride celebrations, but they got more than the rainbows and faint whiff of poppers than what they bargained for. Instead, the Real Felon Of New York City, Luann de Lesseps, tried to take over the day and turn it into a giant cabaret on wheels. For some reason, the gays of San Francisco didn’t appreciate her art!
Page Six says Luann’s float was voted “most outrageous” when it really should have been awarded “who ‘dis bitch think she is??” Luann has taken her one-woman cabaret on the road, and she popped into the Bay Area to show she can be just as much a San Francisco treat as Rice-a-Roni. She was riding in a convertible that included “Empress” Pollo Del Mar, but Luann must have been concerned she was getting royally outranked since Pollo’s title carries as much as her Countess one these days, because one source says she got snooty with the parade volunteers:
“[She] was barking orders the entire parade . . . She was yelling at [an associate] who was then yelling at volunteers — three of whom were deaf. She was very concerned with people recognizing her. She completely stressed volunteers out by micromanaging . . . [about] a banner announcing her presence.”
I know the snitch is trying to build sympathy for the deaf volunteers, but if Lu was singing to the crowd, those three may have been the luckiest people in the whole damn parade. While Lu’s reps claim she is still on the wagon and was only drinking sparkling water, another spy said they saw her downing booze from a paper cup she had stored in the side of the car. The Countess may have said in an early Real Housewives Of New York season that she didn’t drink beer from a bottle, but hard hooch from paper cups must have been given the green light in her etiquette book.
The more glitter the merrier! ✨This is how we do #gaypride ??. If you saw Countess at the parade, raise your statement necklace? ?Dress: @jovanifashions ?Glasses: @aldo_shoes ?Jewelry :@superjeweler #countessandfriends . . . . #sanfrancisco #gay #2018 #rhony #rhop #bravo #realhousewives #work #slay #love #happy #parade #lifeisacabaret @feinsteinssf @hotelnikkosf
Lu’s reign of terror continued when she pissed off parade organizers by calling spectators over to her car, which slowed down the parade. Lu’s rep said this about that:
“It is conceivable that it was perceived that she was micromanaging and concerned about banner placement, but she’s a perfectionist and a professional, which is why her cabaret show is so good and selling out.”
I can see where Lu is coming from. If there wasn’t a banner to announce real lady faux royalty was careening through the streets of San Francisco, the crowds likely would have just mistaken her for any normal New York drag queen like I did for the first season of RHONY!
