“If you can’t be cool, you can’t be with the Countess.”
“One should know…Never count out the Countess.”
“To some people living elegantly just comes naturally!”
“I thought I had it good before, but I’m just getting started.”
“I never feel guilty about being privileged.”
Birthday: May 17th, 1965
Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, everyone’s favorite countess, continues to juggle a busy schedule of 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 her own fashion line, The Countess Collection, for Evine Live (formerly ShopHQ.) Her lifestyle brand will continue to expand into jewelry, home, and spirits later this year. Luann champions 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, Watch What Happens Live!, 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 theater credits, which includes Celebrity Autobiography. Luann splits her time between her Manhattan apartment and her new Hamptons home with her trusty West Highland Terrier, Aston.
