For those of us emotional masochists who have lasted every season of Real Housewives Of New York City, something has just seemed a little off with the recent batch. Sure, we have Bethenny Frankel back and hawking SkinnyGirl everything like in the wee days of the show, but there’s something wrong in the world when Ex-Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is trying to post bail and Tinsley Mortimer is trying to marry a coupon mogul (I think that’s what she’s trying to do). Anyway, Bethenny traded in Jill Zarin in later seasons for an alliance, er, friendship with Carole Radziwill, the widow of Jackie O’s nephew and close friend to Caroline Kennedy. Rather than namedrop her ties to Camelot, Carole spent most of her time on-air blabbing about how we should respect her as a journalist. I guess she’s decided to put her money where her mouth is because she’s quitting that bitch known as Bravo to return to the newsroom! Continue reading
You can normally time a Real Housewives Of New York City dinner party or reunion by the moments when every Duane Reade in Manhattan is out of Xanax. It’s that time of the year when all those shrieking banshees jockey to sit closest to Andy Cohen on the reunion couch and pick apart the healed scab of friendship just to hash out arguments that were settled over a year ago. This season has been kind of a snooze with the exception of Ex-Countless LuAnn de Lesseps really doing the franchise a favor by terrorizing the South Florida police AND dipping her toes in the cabaret singing circuit. Alas, because she’s focusing on her well-being (and avoiding questions about her own children are suing her ass), she checked herself into rehab again and will not be at the reunion. Continue reading
I guess my copy of Class With The Countess is missing the chapter saying it’s okay to bump uparts with a dude before his divorce is finalized. Ex-Countess LuAnn de Lesseps has bounced from Count Chocula (isn’t that how she got her title?) to a series of fellas, including one she was married to for just enough time to give her a central plotline on this season’s Real Housewives Of New York City. Now she’s rubbing up on a new fella, but – shocking – he isn’t exactly done with his marriage. Continue reading
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! Continue reading
Back in December, a drunken Countless Luann de Lesseps wound up in the wrong Palm Beach, FL hotel room and then assaulted the fuzz when they came to send her on her way. We’ve heard all about her mea culpa, but the gods gifted us with her arrest video today. Gird your loins…this is better than finding out who shot J.R. Continue reading
The tenth (!) season of Real Housewives of New York City premiered Wednesday, and it didn’t take long for trouble to brew…and we haven’t even gotten to the episode where Lu throws punches in Palm Beach! Instead, she just showed up to a Halloween party dressed in an awful Marge Simpson-on-roids wig and darker shade of bronzer than usual. Lu claimed she was dressed as Diana Ross.
