Rumor has it Luann de Lesseps was a “big diva” at the San Francisco Pride Parade over the weekend.
The Real Housewives of New York star was in town to perform her cabaret show and also to appear in the pride parade. During the parade, the Countess road with “Emperor” Leandro Gonzales and drag queen “Empress” Pollo Del Mar for LGBTQ nonprofit the Imperial Council.
However, it turns out the Countess didn’t just sit there, wave, and look pretty. Instead, she caused quite a bit of drama and acted like one big diva.
According to Page Six, a spy reported that Luann was “barking orders the entire parade . . . She was yelling at [an associate] who was then yelling at volunteers — three of whom were deaf.”
“She was very concerned with people recognizing her. She completely stressed volunteers out by micromanaging . . . [about] a banner announcing her presence,” the spy added.
While Luann claims to be living a sober a life following her December 2017 arrest and a stint in rehab, witnesses claim the Countess was anything but sober during the pride parade.
“By the time the parade started she was pretty tipsy and then had a paper cup of booze stashed in the side of the car,” the spy reported.
Around the same time, Luann appeared on E’s Daily Pop and made it clear that while she’s currently living a sober life she isn’t vowing to never drink again.
Turns out Luann’s diva ways didn’t stop with her being an alleged “tipsy girl” as the Page Six spy also reports that Luann made her parade ride super “stressful” and no “fun.”
“She kept calling people [over to her vehicle], which you can’t do,” a spy said. “[Her] contingent was yelled at numerous times by security because . . . they kept pulling people in from the audience,” which made her go very slow. “It was frustrating. It was not fun, which it should have been. It was very stressful.”
The more glitter the merrier! ?This is how we do #gaypride ??.

Luann’s rep denies the claims against the RHONY star telling Page Six that Luann was NOT drinking during the parade and that she acted like a “professional.”
“She was not tipsy during Pride because she does not drink alcohol. She was sipping sparkling water in a cup in the car,” Luann’s rep explained in a statement.“It is conceivable that it was perceived that she was micromanaging and concerned about banner placement, but she’s a perfectionist and a professional, which is why her cabaret show is so good and selling out.”
Yikes. Seems like Luann has a PR nightmare on her hands but then again like they say ‘no publicity is bad publicity.’ Except maybe when it comes to her upcoming plea deal. I hope Luann is still sober and that these are just ridiculous rumors. Stay strong Countess!
