Luann de Lesseps is shutting down accusations that she’s irresponsible by partying maskless in Florida.
Days after production on season 13 of RHONY was halted due to a castmember testing positive for COVID-19, the Countess was seen partying it up in Flordia sans a protective face mask.
The 55-year-old reality star attended a birthday party at Portosole in Coral Gables with Real Housewives of Miami stars Marysol Patton and Alexia Echevarria.
A source close to production on RHONY called Lu’s behavior “absolutely outrageous” while noting that the cast still has more filming to do for season 13.
“Andy Cohen, Lisa Shannon at Shed, our production company, and Bravo need to step up and say enough is enough,” the insider added. “Is she planning on doing the mandatory quarantine when she comes back to NYC? We still have more filming to do.”
Now, the Real Housewives of New York star is shutting down claims she’s jeopardizing production on RHONY.
According to Lu, party organizers required a negative COVID test result before allowing anyone in the party. She also insists that she was wearing a mask at the party but took it off for a few photos.
“I took the mask off for some photos,” she told Page Six. “Knowing everyone had tested negative, I felt comfortable doing that.”
She also said she would quarantine once she’s back in New York City.
RHONY will return to Bravo for season 13 in 2021.
