"...When Luann de Lesseps entered that room . . . every seat was the right one. A VISION OF CLASS!! And countess who is a-THRIVING! Luann donned a floor-length beaded white gown that had me screaming Oh God Yes! YESSSS! To The Dress."

"The second performance of #CountessAndFriends. on March 8 proved to be even more star-studded than the premiere. The Real Housewives of New York City squad was sitting front and center, decked out in bedazzled jumpsuits and wrap dresses (we’ll get to that later) to cheer the Countess on.

Sonja joined Luann de Lesseps for the iconic hit “Money Can’t Buy You Class” but it wasn’t just Sonja’s talent as a backup singer on display – the Housewife had a wardrobe malfunction heard ‘round Manhattan."

Countess and Friends

"Held at Feinstein's/54 Below in the Big Apple, the live event tells the story of Luann's "life in the fast lane" on several continents. Her journey provides hilarious stories, unique anecdotes and even some pop songs in her signature style."

~ E! 

 
 
 
 

"Hip as a New York minute and classically chic, De Lesseps' glamourous life in the fast lane on several continents (together with a solid decade of starring on reality TV) provides fodder for hilarious stories, one-of-a-kind anecdotes, and, of course, some standards and pop songs in her inimitable style. She will be joined by an eclectic group of Broadway and New York's most sough-t after stars both legendary and ascendant. She was joined in her initial shows by the likes of Rachel Dratch, Laura Benanti, Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Tony Yazbeck, Bridget Everett, Sonja Morgan, Natalie Joy Johnson and Jai'len Josey.

There are always surprises and surprise gusts in #CountessAndFriends."

She’s had a rough road this year, but LuAnn de Lesseps is getting back to her first love: the stage… “Hip as a New York minute and classically chic, Countess Luann De Lesseps’ glamorous life in the fast lane on several continents (together with a solid decade of starring on reality TV) provides fodder for hilarious stories, one-of-a-kind anecdotes, and, of course, some standards and pop songs in her inimitable style,” reads the release.

Forbes

“Real housewife. Cabaret singer. Former nurse. Forever countess. Luann de Lesseps has held many titles, but early in life, she took on the role of "world traveler," and it's a label that she still owns today. Since leaving her childhood home in Berlin, Connecticut, Luann de Lesseps has been on the move—upward and onward. Here, the countess talks travel, touring, and the total trip that’s being in the public eye.

Luann: ‘Curiosity and a drive to understand people, cultures and different languages. Both of my parents were Canadian, so we grew up speaking French in the home. I think that's what sparked my travel bug at such a young age.’”

~ Nicole Trilivas, Forbes


Vanity fair

"Countess Luann de Lesseps of The Real Housewives of New York City fame take to the stage in a cabaret show entitled '#CountessAndFriends' (hashtag hers) at Feinstein’s/54 Below, a venue whose Haunted Mansion meets bordello décor was more than suited for the occasion.

Luann de Lesseps is arguably the classiest and most royal-seeming of the housewives... A VISION OF CLASS!! And countess who is a-THRIVING! Luann donned a floor-length beaded white gown that had me screaming Oh God Yes! YESSSS! To The Dress."

THE NEW YORK TIMES

“I am not a scripted actress — I’m more of an off-the-cuff-type person,” she said.

Standing in front of a baby-grand piano in her bright Upper West Side penthouse, freezing rain tapping gently against the windows, Ms. de Lesseps studied a printout of her introductory remarks for #CountessAndFriends, a cabaret show that will debut at the Manhattan nightclub Feinstein’s/54 Below on Feb. 27. As the Grammy-winning composer Billy Stritch played “With a Little Help From My Friends,” she addressed an imaginary crowd...To know that the show was totally sold out and people are still trying to get tickets is a really great feeling,” said Ms. de Lesseps.

Real Housewives of New York Star Luann de Lesseps Takes AD Inside Her Recently Renovated Sag Harbor Home.

"I love Sag Harbor. I love the history of the village; I love the historical neighborhood," de Lesseps says. "I love the proximity to the village and being able to walk home. It’s such a lovely walk too, because all the houses are really pretty on Main Street."

"I love the nature. It’s a great family home. I love the beach. I love the village," de Lesseps says of Sag Harbor and her home there which she purchased four years ago. "And I have a lot of friends there, because I’ve been living there since 1993. We built our first home in 1994. We were coming back from Europe, back and forth."
