What Would LuAnn Have Done Differently With Carole This Season?


LuAnn de Lesseps is taking to her blog this week to reveal the one thing she would have done differently when it came to her feud with Carole Radziwill on this season of RHONY. The Countess also shares her reactions to the other ladies feuds. Read what she has to say below.

“We are back on the couch (hot seat) with Andy during part two of the reunion, and as you can see, we girls are having a hard time forgiving and forgetting! Andy starts by bringing up the Carole/Adam thing, and Carole admits had she known how upset my niece was at the time, she would have thought twice about dating my niece’s ex-boyfriend. In retrospect, I should have been more vocal about what was happening, because as a result, my niece was very upset with me. Again, I’ve wished them both well, and I’m beyond ready to move on. For the time being, our friendship is on rocky terrain, and you’ll have to tune in next week to see if the road gets even rougher for us.

When the season began, some of the girls had a problem with John’s personal space issues, including him “copping a feel” whenever he had the opportunity. Yet, as the season progressed, and we got to know him better, our affection for him grew. He’s a man who loves women (nothing wrong with that), and he loves Dorinda, and she loves him. Ultimately, it’s Dorinda’s relationship, and if she doesn’t care what we think, all the better for her.

The FU dinner came up, and as you can see, Heather can be opinionated while Dorinda tends to be more open-minded. That night, Dorinda mixed exhaustion with martinis and her “sensitive” side emerged! I think there is hope for Dorinda and Heather’s relationship, and maybe a long walk in the Berkshires woods is just what they need to mend their friendship.

I thought it was interesting that Andy said we were all more sexually comfortable this season. I’ve been divorced for some time now and while this Cool Countess (à la Bethenny) enjoys being single, I would love to find Mr. Right; it just hasn’t happened yet. Eric and I see each other on occasion, but since the show aired, he’s moved out of New York City. I know that it would have been much more scandalous had I taken Eric into the restroom, but he was simply being a gentleman by escorting me through the crowd. I was glad to hear that Bethenny is dating again and that she is seeing men who value her privacy. As for Ramona, she’s sticking to her story that she doesn’t sleep around, although I hope for her that she occasionally takes a lover and goes to confession afterward.

At the end of last season while Ramona was reeling from the breakup of her marriage, she tried to respect Mario’s wishes by not revealing what led to their divorce. Mario may blame this show for his marital problems, but I think the mistress might have had something to do with it. I felt for Ramona when she shared that she surprised Mario and his lady friend in Southampton and then lied about needing her contacts. I guess she chose the high road then and there, and she’s stuck to it since. When I revealed that I never liked Mario especially after his snarky comment about me, you could see in Ramona’s facial expression that she is still loyal to him on some level. I hope that they can remain friends for the sake of their daughter.

I think Bethenny is right about Ramona, and I’ve seen positive changes in her since her breakup. Will she ever admit to filching a couple of dresses…NO! Is she sincere every time she apologizes…nope. Is she more sensitive and authentic…YES, but she still has the Singer Stinger that comes out when she’s backed into a corner. It’s hard for a leopardess to change her spots, and life is a journey. As long as we are moving forward, we are doing alright.”

  1. Lu Ann…just a thought…maybe you should not screw everything that gives you a second look while in the company of your castmates. They seem to all have a different version of your behavior than you do….and are more than happy to “out” you on national TV.

  2. Wow, having sex with another woman’s husband- who us wearing a wedding ring- is Luanne’s perfect right? I hope this entitled piece of work gets what’s coming to her.

  3. I mean who “was” wearing a wedding ring. No wonder her gold digging attempt with the Count didn’t last. He put the trash out at the curb.

    1. I’m just going to add that every time I see the picture of her in her reunion dress I cringe! I can’t remember who said it but definitely barbie tacky!

  4. I think Luann is so promiscuous because her husband (The Count) left her for a younger woman. Now she is trying to prove she is still desirable by sleeping with every young man in New York. I think she is pathetic!!

    1. It was revealed in various seasons Lu and the Count had an open marriage and both messed around with others while married to each other.

  5. I have no problem with Lu banging every 20-year-old in New York City AND Turks and Caicos. My problem is her do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do attitude with the other women, particularly Carole.

  6. Ah, Luann, Luann. This season showed us that the Princess truly trumped the mere Countess in both grace and class, not even including that discount store blue, spandex, cut out tacky mess of a skating costume dress. Carole is true to herself and authentic on screen. Give it a shot.

  7. LuAnn…the countess who “sings” about class but sleeps with married men…will shag anything that breathes and has a nobility title that is recognized nowhere

  8. I have no words for the revulsion at feel at this woman’s behavior. Her laughably idiotic and ever changing reasons for attacking Carole, her disgusting sexual habits, her arrogance, her hypocrisy. Well maybe I do have a few words after all.

  9. I still can’t get past that dress. It is, by far, the ugliest, cheapest thing I’ve seen. It needs to get burned. Don’t even donate it unless someone wants to wear it for Halloween. And Heather’s outfit was so tacky. Both of them trying WAY too hard to look hip and cool. Then last night I saw the bad hair extensions on Kristen topped with that hideous make-up, finished up with the aging, ugly dress and it made her look older than any of them. What happens to some of them during the reunion? Do they lose all sense of judgment? The reunion is NOT the time to try out a new look.

  10. Lu Ann is funny to watch, she’s cool and not really concerned what people think of her. Yeah Kristen’s time is over on the show especially now with her husband being in the public eye, but again you never know with Bravo as they love filming this kind of drama.
