LuAnn De Lesseps Recruits Jill Zarin And Kelly Bensimon For “Chic, C’est La Vie”

Countess Luann De Lesseps Wasn’t Always Royalty

Well, well, well, it looks like money did buy Countess Luann de Lesseps class. Long before she wore custom Moroccan caftans on “The Real Housewives of New York City,” she was just a high school student with some crazy feathered hair and a dream of becoming a nurse. If only nurses still wore caps like…

“Real Housewives Of NYC” Tension All Comes Down To A Hair Color Divide

“It’s just the natural divide, it’s like [the San] Andreas fault. You just can’t guess when it’s going to split.”

The Countess Debuts “Chic, C’est La Vie”

Last night, I missed “The Real Housewives Of New York City” because it was The Frisky’s night to bowl in the New York All Media Bowling League (I rolled my highest score ever, FYI), but I did make it home in time to see this hot mess, above. The Countess, LuAnn de Lesseps, performing…

Last night on “The Real Housewives of New York,” the C(o)untess LuAnn De Lesseps revealed something rather shocking: back during her modeling days, before she became an expert in hypocrisy and etiquette, she appeared on the cover of Playgirl’s “Men of Texas” issue. And sure enough … here she is!

The Really Rich Housewives Of New York City Want More Money

There’s drama, drama, drama over the next season of “The Real Housewives of New York City.” While Kelly Bensimon, the newbie housewife-that-everyone-loves-to-hate, is officially on board, the original cast members––Bethany Frankel, Alex McCord, Ramona Singer, and Jill Zarin (there was no mention of LuAnn de Lesseps)––are rumored to be stalling on signing their contracts for…

Ode To The Real Housewives Of NYC

After the amazing brouhaha between Kelly and Bethenny on last week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of New York,” this week’s episode was a downright snooze fest. Watching rich, middle-aged white people play tennis is about as exciting as watching the paint dry in Jill’s new Liberace-inspired apartment, and with Ramona’s new “cool…

The Real Housewives Of NYC: LuAnn Is The Most Rotten Apple Of All

Given the drama of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and the deer-in-headlights-spectacle of “Orange County,” the NYC version is the most tepid and ho-hum of Bravo’s franchise.
