LuAnn DeLesseps The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Luann de Lesseps Slams ‘Disgruntled Ex-Employee’ For Publicly Shading Her During a Pandemic

Luann de Lesseps is wishing her “disgruntled ex-employee” Danny Marin would be cool and not so uncool, especially during a global pandemic.

The Real Housewives of New York star slammed Danny in a statement to Page Six after he publicly shaded her on Instagram.

“It’s utterly disgusting that a disgruntled ex-employee would take swipes at me during a global pandemic,” Luann told Page Six. “His timing here speaks volumes considering its been a year since he last worked for me and with the premiere of ‘RHONY’ Season 12 coming up.”

As we previously reported, Danny revealed what a nightmare it was working for the Countess while also throwing shade at Lu’s questionable sobriety during a Q&A on Instagram.

In a post on his Instagram, Danny called the Countess out, writing, “FUN FACT: I was the only reason why#countessluann knew her lyrics while filming her music video, got dressed in time, had jewelry on, had multiple shoe options, wrangled her Housewife friends…OH YEAH, THAT’s RIGHT, but I didn’t get a credit helping for 18 hours straight filming the #FeelinJovani music video.” 

When questioned by fans about why he’s now bringing this drama up, Danny explained, “I didn’t get credit along with every other person who helped on set that day. The tea here is she doesn’t respect people’s hard work.”

As for Lu’s sobriety, Danny wrote, “All I want to say is sobriety is not a game. Rehab is not a storyline.”

And it seems that Danny knew exactly how his former boss would respond which is why is clarified that he was NEVER fired explaining, “The reality is I quit twice.”

Season 12 of the RHONY premieres Thursday, April 2, at 9 p.m. ET
