I’m sure the ladies of New York are going to love this!
After making a huge deal about the fact that she will be starring in Broadway’s Chicago, it is now being reported that Luann will not be part of the cast! So what happened?
According to Fox News “reps for the reality star tell us she is sadly mistaken.” Ouch! Apparently there were “scheduling conflicts” (isn’t that the ultimate go to excuse?) Luann’s reps state that: “Due to scheduling conflicts, between her [Bravo show], her jewelry line and her successful cabaret tour [with ‘The Countess and Friends’] Luann will not be joining the cast of ‘Chicago’ at this time.”
Apparently Lu has not only been telling her RHONY costars, but bragging to friends that she would be playing Mama Morton in the hit Broadway play. This character was portrayed in an iconic performance by Queen Latifah the Oscar winning movie adaptation.
Naturally it’s become a came of she said/her rep said/others say as sources claim that “production had been in talks with de Lesseps but had ultimately decided to go in a different direction.”
Luann LOVES the stage and a chance to be on Broadway would be her cabaret act on steroids. I don’t think Lu would prioritize her jewelry line over Broadway lights so my gut is telling me she jumped the gun with her announcement.
Thoughts on the mix up? Do you believe there was a scheduling conflict or do you think production changed their mind?
