Luann De Lesseps, star of The Real Housewives of New York, is back for season 11. Luann recently joined Andy Cohen for an appearance on his late night talk show, Watch What Happens Live. Luann was wearing a Jovani design, of course! There was a lot to discuss on WWHL, because a lot of the RHONY is revolving around Luann’s personal life. She responded to Dorinda Medley declaring her innocence when it comes to their friendship, she reacted to the cast talking about the length of her rehab treatments, and answered where her friendship with Bethenny Frankel stands!
This season the cast has been busy discussing Luann’s rehab treatment and recovery. Luann reacted, “Reaction is that I stayed for three weeks, first of all. I went in July and I did a show on August fourth or fifth. So I stayed for three weeks and I came out and went on stage. It makes me so happy to do my cabaret show and that’s where I wanted to be. The love from the fans is the biggest support that I can possibly get.”
Is her cabaret environment a triggering environment? Luann answered, “Walking out on the street, being in this clubhouse, everywhere is a trigger. So no, not at all. In fact, I love watching them have a good time. I’m on stage working, it’s work what I do. But I love it, it gives me great joy.” Luann’s cabaret show is super successful. Her show is the highest grossing performance at 54 Below in its history and it’s always sold out!
A lot of people wanted to know Luann responded, “I didn’t see that, so I’m glad that you’re telling me because I didn’t even know that happened. So what did she say?” Andy filled Luann in on how Dorinda said that she didn’t do anything wrong. Luann said, “Well, you’re going to see how that goes down this season on the show. Because that’s not accurate.”
Ramona Singer said that Luann and Bethenny are only friends out of default. Ramona said Bethenny doesn’t have a lot of friends that are female, so she insinuated that is why she is friends with Luann. However; the Countess does not agree. Luann said, “No, Bethenny and I have been friends for years. So no, I don’t agree with that.” Where does their friendship stand today? Luann answered, “We stand by each other because we’re friends. If you care about somebody basically, you try to mend things. So even though you disagree sometimes, you try to mend things.”
Congrats to Luann on the success of her cabaret show! I’m so excited that the RHONY is back on. I love the ladies and life in the Big Apple. Stay tuned for more, loves!
