LuAnnie was havin’ a case of the vapors when she saw she was included in this WSL article…
Thursday was a huge night for “fashion”… anyone who loves “fashion” showed how much they loved “fashion” by showing up somewhere to show their fashionable face!
FNO started four years ago by Vogue’s Anna Wintour to boost awareness of the “fashion” industry; as a warm up to fashion week; but, really, FNO’s “celebration” of “fashion” is simply a way to get consumers to part with their money by thinking that they’re part of the “fashion-istas” crowd.
All the Housewives were out… the RHONY were meted out to various Macy’s stores! PT Housewife was sent to the Chicago Macy’s.
Very surprisingly, for someone so “highly educated” and “sophisticated” and “worldly”… this was PT Housewife’s very first visit to Chicago! For one hour at Macy’s… how did she ever make it out of NYC?? Perhaps she took Ramaoner’s advice!

“Real Housewives” fans can spot New York’s Aviva Drescher from 7 to 8 p.m. Nzimiro Optua of NBC’s “Fashion Star” will give the scoop at 6 p.m. on fall fashion trends. Six designers of the Chicago Fashion Incubator will be there as well for a trunk show.
The REAL eye-catcher in the Housewives participation in FNO was Melissa Gorga! MeGo was at the Christiana Mall in Delaware… guess the larger, better known retailers weren’t goin’ for the New Jersey crew! Poor MeGo!! From DelawareOnline:
“Christiana landed its own celeb this year with “Real Housewife of New Jersey” Melissa Gorga posing for snapshots and signing copies of her $10 CD.
Accompanied by her squat, beefcake husband Joe, Gorga chatted with a steady stream of mostly twentysomethings – some with children in tow – who waited for two hours in a line that backed up to California Pizza Kitchen.
Gorga wore a one-strap black minidress with sheer overlay and booties.
Through her publicist, she declined to be interviewed before the event but carved out five minutes for questions on her walk to the car after the event. NOTE: MeGo was probably getting more CD’s outta the trunk of her car!
Though she lives in northern New Jersey, this was Gorga’s first time in Delaware. She signed on to Fashion’s Night Out because “I love the fans and I love the mall.” She added that her new single, “I Just Wanna,” will be officially released Sunday.
Asked if her fans think she represents an actual housewife, she replied: “I do think people look up to me as a housewife.”
