Rating the Real Housewives of New York…

New York Magazine asks the question:  “Which of the Real Housewives of New York is the classiest?”

                                                                                                      The man responsible for LuAnn’s classy title… Count Alexandre de Lesseps (and LuAnn)

Obviously, the question stems from the RHONY being the only franchise that includes a ‘Countess’ who not only thinks she’s classy, but is riding her ‘by marriage’ Countess title as far as she can paddle her canoe.  Oh, sorry.  LuAnn de Lesseps, aka the ‘Countess,’ would not paddle a canoe, dahling, so let me change that last part to ‘as far as the captain of her yacht will sail her.’  LuAnn thinks she’s so classy that she’s written a book about the subject, has given seminars to paying registrants, has a column in a magazine in which she answers questions pertaining to being classy and has recorded (or auto-tuned, let’s keep it real here) a number one dance hit “Money Can’t Buy You Class.”

                                                                                               LuAnn’s next book will feature a chapter on ‘How to Live with Yourself Knowing You Didn’t Write Your Own Book.’

To all of you who believe that LuAnn IS the classiest of all the Real Housewives of New York, brace yourself.  LuAnn has admitted that she did not write her book… and she probably doesn’t even read the questions submitted to her magazine column, let alone actually write the responses.  But, LuAnn is hanging on to that ‘Countess’ title… she claims that she worked sixteen long years for that title and she’s keeping it.  Hmmm… I wonder if LuAnn had divorced the Count instead of the other way around, would she still be entitled to the title?

So, is LuAnn the classiest of all the Real Housewives of New York?  Classier than Jillz? (no doubt),  Alex? (probably),  Sonja Morgan?   Koo-Koo Kelly??? (too easy!).

  1. okie doke. Sometimes I like LuAnn. Sometimes I think she is arrogant but mostly when she is being arrogant it is usually to someone who deserves to be put in their place. Just like when Bethany was “snarky” it was usually a very witty much deserved jab. That being said, I must ask, can we count The Countess to be attending the royal wedding or can will she be a no-show Discountess? Surely she received and invitation, no?
    See me do it too. HAHAHAHA


  2. I’m trying to remember who wrote the blog about Luann and Cat being on WWHL…. Cat put a smack down on Luann(especially in the after show part 2)… I’m pretty positive Lulu was holding back the tears.


    • Liora, I wrote to GiggyLover about it. I saw the after show and loved it. Discountess looked like her chest was red with hives also. I loved it! Cat really tore into her, and rightfully so. She was so so uppity, like she was the star, and Cat calling her a back stabber and shit stirrer,I was loving every minute of it. I watched it a couple times.


      • Oh my goodness… thanks for clarifying. I was wrecking my brain trying to figure out who wrote it(going to various Housewives websites and finding nothing).
