While some may say she can’t carry a tune, Luann de Lesseps can sure carry a grudge!
After Barbara Kavovit’s dismal ‘friend’ status on last season’s RHONY, Babs watched her friendship with Luann go from thick as thieves to non-existent. While Barbara has for the most part quietly exited the show, Luann isn’t letting her go that easily as she recently appeared on SiriusXM’s The Jenny McCarthy Show and slammed her former friend. Taking particular criticism on Barbara’s comments on her cabaret, Lu states:
“Girlfriend, I can carry a tune, so hell with Barbara. That’s the second time, also, that she got caught on camera talking smack about me. … You have to pull the weeds, so you can make room for the flowers.”
According to Barbara, the feeling is mutual as she has spoken out herself stating that there is no love lost between her and Lu saying: “There is no good with Luann. I had a 14-year friendship with her that I will walk away from forever. She will never have me as a friend again.”
While I think Luann is as crazy as it gets it’s sad to see any 14-year friendship go down the drain – I suppose you can call it the curse of the housewives! Personally I think it was a huge mistake for Barbara to appear on the show. She obviously wasn’t a fit with the rest of the ladies and I do think that if it weren’t for the show the two would still be friends. Either way, it may be for the best as Lu seemed to only want Barbara around if she were singing her praises and Barbara seemed to be a straight shooter who tells things as it is. Perhaps it just took a reality show for the two former friends to see this.
What do you think of Barabar and Lu? Does LuAnn have a right to be upset with Barbara or should Barbara be upset with Lu?
