Biography

The Countess Luann de Lesseps continues to juggle a busy schedule between work and being a single mother of two. Her daughter Victoria, an accomplished artist, is in her third year of college and her son, Noel, an artist, entrepreneur and high school senior, has recently launched his own venture in skateboard design: Fancy Fool.


Last year, Luann, known for her distinctive style, successfully launched a fashion line "The Countess Collection" for EvineLive.com (formerly ShopHQ.) Her lifestyle brand will continue to expand into jewelry, home and spirits later this year.

Luann continues to her television appearances, championing her favorite charities -- the American Cancer Society, ACE Soho Partnership for the Homeless, GLAAD, amFAR, and a host of others. She continues to challenge herself and expand her horizons with frequent hosting and guest appearances on national and regional shows like "Steve Harvey," "Wendy Williams," "OMG Insider," "The Talk," "OK! TV," "Good Day New York" and others. She has made the leap to primetime network programming with roles on "Royal Pains" and "Law & Order: SVU," in addition to her growing list of theatre credits, which includes "Celebrity Autobiography."

Luann spends her time between her Manhattan apartment and her new Hamptons home.

LuAnn will be on the EvineLive Shopping Network May 27th, so be sure to check your local listings! Season 7 of Bravo TV's "The Real Housewives of New York City," starring Countess Luann is on Tuesdays at 9pm EST.
