Oh Lu, maybe you should learn when to fold ’em.
Luann has had a rough few weeks. First she was arrested in the city where she was married, announced she was going into rehab and then it was suggested that she drop her last name (for original story click here.)
Now in a sure to be embarrassment, Page Six is reporting that Luann is moving forward with a Cabaret show that has been in the works. Is Sonja Morgan her agent giving her these ideas???
Page Six reports that Lu has been working hard on a Cabaret act titled “Countess and Friends” and is described as a:‘ “nightclub act” which is set to debut at NYC supper club Feinstein’s/54 Below on Feb. 27 and March 8, unless she is still in rehab or isn’t permitted to leave Florida by the judge presiding over her case.’
The show will showcase: “[D]e Lesseps’s glamorous life in the fast lane on several continents (together with a solid decade at the center of reality TV) provides fodder for hilarious stories, one-of-a-kind anecdotes, and, of course, some standards and pop songs in her inimitable style.”
In addition she will have some guests described as, “an eclectic group of New York’s most sought after nightlife stars, both legendary and ascendant. Promises a glorious return to the heyday of cosmopolitan evening entertainment.”
Hm….okay…where do I start? First, the title…
Luann gave up her ‘Countess’ title when she got married. In addition, her ex-husband is reportedly furious that Luann is embarrassing the de Lesseps name so I’m sure using the ‘Countess’ title in a Cabaret act isn’t going to go over well. Second, Cabarets are notorious for being set in boozy settings and let’s face it, are a bit tacky. If Luann is trying to overhaul her image and take her rehab stint seriously I don’t think a ‘Cabaret’ is the best move.
A source spoke to Page Six stating: “Now she’s got more stories to tell, that’s for sure,” and that her team was interviewing candidates to help her create the show to “take on the road.”
Time will tell how this will turnout for Lu!
Thoughts on Luann’s next career move?? Would you go see her show?
