Luann de Lesseps’ life is one big hot mess.
First, the Countess was arrested on Christmas Eve, and was charged with four felonies including “battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and two corruption by threat charges.”
Then, the Real Housewives of New York star announced she would be voluntarily checking herself into rehab. No word on when, or where the Countess will be completing rehab.
And now, Luann’s ex-husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps wants her to drop his last name.
According to Page Six, the Count has been closely monitoring the news coverage of Luann’s arrest and is “mortified and ashamed.”
“He told her she is ruining the family name and should drop it if she’s continuing to act like this . . . He is watching from abroad and is totally embarrassed,” a source reveals to Page Six.
If you remember Luann happily gave up her Countess title last New Year’s Eve when she married Tom D’Agostino.
Luann was so excited about her name switch that she even used it as her tagline during season 9 of RHONY – “The only title I’d give up ‘countess’ for is ‘wife.’ ”
However, Luann continued to be referred to as the Countess for business purposes including her bedding line, dubbed The Countess Collection.
In fact, Luann claimed that her Countess title was more of a way of life, saying “The countess will always be a part of who I am,” yet sources insist that after Luann and Tom’s marriage went sour, she regretted giving up her title.
“Poor Luann. She loved being a countess,” s source told Page Six back in August.
Meanwhile, it’s rumored that Luann’s ex-husband Tom D’Agostino was throwing an “unwedding” party on New Year’s Eve but according to E! News that wasn’t the case.
Sources say that Tom was throwing a New Year’s Eve party but claim it had nothing to do with his ex or their wedding and had everything to do with his birthday which happens to fall on the same day.
Tom, who is apparently very single, celebrated his birthday with a small gathering of 75 and no Bravo stars in attendance.
I’m not surprised Luann is facing more fallout from her arrest. But come on, Luann’s daughter got arrested this year for DUI and the Count wasn’t asking her to give up her last name.
Are you surprised the Count wants Luann to drop his last name? Should Luann drop her ex-husband’s last name? Does Luann regrets giving up her Countess title for Tom? Do you think Tom’s NYE party a dig at Luann?
