Earlier this year, Real Housewives of New York City star LuAnn de Lesseps faced a legal battle when her ex-husband Alexandre de Lesseps and children, Victoria and Noel, sued her after she failed to create a trust for the kids. As part of her 2009 divorce settlement, the former couple had agreed that their kids would be entitled to their $3.1 million Sag Harbor estate. But, her family was reportedly worried that LuAnn would sell the home for a profit and buy another home in upstate New York without creating the trust.
Alexandre, Victoria, and Noel said that LuAnn threatened to sell the house and withhold the kids’ share of the money, so they requested an injunction on the sale of the home. The lawsuit is what reportedly lead the Countess to relapse and return to rehab.
But, now it seems that LuAnn’s relationship with her daughter Victoria is much better. When the 53-year-old reality star hosted a Drag Brunch this past weekend, Victoria attended the fun event.
For the brunch, LuAnn wore a cream-colored halter-style dress with a plunging neckline. The dual-layered skirt almost hit the floor and left her gold peep-toe pumps barely visible. LuAnn accessorized the look with jewel-encrusted bracelets, a multi-chain necklace, several rings, and a fur shawl. She also wore her brunette down and falling on her shoulders and added some smokey eye makeup with rose lipstick.
Victoria also looked elegant in a black dress with fur trim on the shoulders and sleeves.
The mother-daughter duo appeared to be on good terms and shared a kiss, but it isn’t clear if they have resolved their lawsuit. Last month, LuAnn told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that everything was great with Victoria and Noel.
“There was a big hiccup about me wanting to get a house upstate and not being in the Hamptons,’ she said. ‘So, I decided to keep the Hamptons home, and I’m getting a house upstate in any case. So, it all worked out.”
LuAnn added that she celebrated Labor Day with her kids, and it was fantastic, and everything was great.
According to Us Weekly, LuAnn also wished Noel a happy birthday late last month with a message on Instagram. In the caption of the pic that featured LuAnn de Lesseps and Noel hugging next to a table full of food and birthday candles, she wrote that she was proud to be his mom, and he is a handsome, kind boy.
New episodes of Real Housewives of New York City will return to Bravo next spring.
