Countess Luann Comes to Ridgefield, Says ‘Real Housewives of NY’ is Not Scripted
Luann De Lesseps is an international reality TV star, as an "O.G." member of the Real Housewives of New York cast.
Her fame has afforded her certain opportunities, including her latest venture, a cabaret show. Luann is on a stage tour called "Countess Cabaret" and her show comes to the Ridgefield Playhouse on Saturday, April 16, 2022.
Ahead of her show, the Countess appeared on the Ethan and Lou Radio Show on Wednesday, April 6. The Housewives franchise is known for its cast disputes, so we asked the Countess who is she "beefing" with and whether these conflicts come from social media? This was her response.
"I'm the non-beefer of the group, which is, you know, I like to keep it. I'm the happy medium that you need to have part of a cast. But listen, I get into it, I'm certainly, I'm no pushover. But I don't right now have beef with anybody right now on our cast. I think you might have heard that we have the new O.G. show coming back to Bravo. We have a new cast coming with kind of a multi, you know kind of racial cast and then they are bringing back the O.G. Cast for kind of an O.G. show. So, I just think there is room for everybody, women supporting women and of course, you have drama."
De Lesseps continued, explaining that these over-the-top feuds are taking place on TV, saying:
"Is it fabricated? No. Would you normally get so upset, you maybe didn't get invited to a dinner party? Eh, it's exaggerating. We are making a television show at the end of the day but it's not scripted. They're not telling us what to say but it's a produced, edited television show and it's been working for fourteen years now Lou, so I think we're doing something right."
Listen to our entire interview with Luann below where she shares how she ended up on stage, what the housewives pecking order is and that she will not be imbibing at the Ridgefield Playhouse event.
With Luann on the show, I could not miss a chance to say "what's up" to my girl Sonja Morgan. I asked Luann to say hi for me, because Sonja and I hit it off in a big way when we met.
