The moment you all have been waiting for has arrived! The Countess LuAnn de Lesseps has released the video for “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” It’s amazing what some hair extensions and a super talented makeup artist can do. LuAnn looks really pretty, but the song still sucks hiney! And is it just me or does it look as if she’s giving O-face when the video is at rest? Anyhoo, enjoy … you know you want to click play.

“It was a nervous breakthrough. I learned don’t do it. Don’t be around people who don’t like you. I will never engage them like that ever again. I learned my lesson, as should everyone. It was four people against one. I go on this trip, I’m trying to be open. I have no expectations. I’m trying to be nice to these women who clearly don’t like me. But the minute I got on the trip, they went after me. It was constant. It’s an awkward position. Normally you’d be like, ‘I’m not dealing with this… I’m leaving. But this is not a situation where you can leave. You have to stay and you have to police them otherwise then you’re not a part of what’s going on and then they go off. This is me being a Housewife on a television show. This is not me in my real life.”
— Kelly Bensimon talks with with People about her crazy behavior on last week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” during which she and her costars vacationed on a yacht. Yeah … Kelly Bensimon: still crazy in my book, if for no other reason than agreeing to appear on a show that turns her life so topsy turvy and makes her such a nervous wreck. But let’s face it: that’s the least of her craziness. [People] Keep reading »
Whether or not Kelly Bensimon is crazy seemed to be the main subject of last night’s catfight-tastic episode of the “The Real Housewives of New York City.” All the women — well, except for Jill and LuAnn — got trapped together hopping around the Virgin Islands, landing at some crazy castle resort, where either something in the food, the water, or the weather — OK, maybe it was the company — made Kelly go coo-coo. Or did it? Keep reading »
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 her still-unfinished track, “Chic, C’est La Vie,” which she describes as “spoken word over a Saint-Tropez beat.” Ah-mazingness. Keep reading »
I loved the first two seasons of “The Real Housewives of New York City.” While the ladies’ beefs in seasons past were petty, this year’s feuds are more, “Really—you have more than three words to say about this microscopic thing?” The most disappointing part for me is Bethenny and Jill. In the past two seasons, they were best of friends and my two favorite characters on the show because they were at least 10 degrees less crazy than the rest of the women. But this season, they’re in a huge fight. Jill is furious Bethenny checked out on their friendship over the summer, while Bobby was sick, and left her a message telling her to, “Get a hobby.” Meanwhile, Bethenny is convinced that Jill is just jealous that she now has a great new husband. If they’d sit down for 15 minutes, they could both apologize and resolve the whole thing. Instead, they’re avoiding each other, creating a ton of tension, and showing outrageous levels of self-absorption in the process.
But their feud reached a fever pitch this weekend, when Bethenny had her baby. Keep reading »
Oh, the song of the summer has arrived! Throw out your “Tardy for the Party” cassettes, girls. Countess LuAnn is ready to rock the mic! LuAnn De Lesseps’ first single has been leaked, and, well, it’s rich. Just take a listen, why don’t you? Keep reading »
You know how Kelly Bensimon of “The Real Housewives of New York City” claims to be a writer? Well, until I peeped this video I assumed she attended swanky events, greeted her hosts, and afterward pulled a little blurb out of her behind for a niche magazine or website. Boy, was I wrong. I, like Kelly, know the pain of rejection when you’re hitting the pavement trying to report a story. But I often had to interview more nefarious subjects than those expressing their own street style. Catch the rest of the episode tomorrow night at 10 p.m. on Bravo, and don’t forget to hit up the Talk Bubble while you watch. Keep reading »
Alex McCord and Simon Van Kempen have been getting flack for their parenting style since season one of “The Real Housewives of New York City.” First there was the time their sons, Francois and Johan, misbehaved at a fancy dinner. They climbed on and under the table and even ate from a guest’s plate. Then, this season Francois was caught on tape climbing a stranger’s leg, which sparked controversy between Alex and Jill Zarin and LuAnn De Lesseps, who ridiculed Alex for his behavior. So it came as a shock when she and Simon inked a parenting book deal.
