-The Betty Editors
We were thrilled to host Countess LuAnn de Lesseps of BravoTV’s Real Housewives of New York City participate in a live chat on BettyConfidential’s Facebook wall. In case you came in late to the party, here are some highlights from our conversation. To make it easier to read, we’re putting LuAnn’s answers right after the questions, though in the chat things were a little crazier! To read it in its entirety, please visit our Facebook wall.
Would you consider yourself a cougar?
Awwwww…. not a cougar but as I get older I find I like younger men…already had an older one!
What do your children think of your singing career?
My kids love that I sing and they are used to it because I sing at home for friends.
Any thoughts on Charlie Sheen?
I feel sorry for Charlie Sheen. He needs a housewife!
I wear a lot of designers from Calvin Klein to Magaschoni to H+M. Its not what you spend its how you pull it together… I just got a great dress at Daffy’s!
LuAnn, any words on Simon?
I like Simon! he’s fun.. weird fun! … I don’t know if I like the way he dresses but at least doesn’t take himself seriously.
Do you still talk to Bethenny? If not, do you at least watch her show?
I have seen Bethenny’s show and I like it. Happy for her!
Do you still believe in love? Will you ever remarry?
I do believe in love and marriage.I’m a hopeless romantic
We want to see more of you on TV!
Write to Bravo and demand I have my own show! “Class with the Countess” forever!!
I notice lots of housewives on shows change after they are on for awhile — like surgeries or how they wear their hair and makeup. You seem to stay the same and are confident in that. Anything on that?
I haven’t changed my look in a while. I’m happy with the way I look and feel great. Are you giving me a hint?
I’m curious how you balance motherhood with all your professional accomplishments — if you had one piece of advice for working moms what would it be?
Organization is key … When mommy is happy the kids are happy. Take care of yourself and they will happily fall in line.
It seems like Bravo has been doing a lot of “editing” of the Housewives shows- do you have ANY control over what they can and can’t do to your image?
NONE! I love adventure and try not to take things too seriously!
Final words of wisdom?
Curiosity is key. The minute you think you’re ripe you begin to rot!
