LuAnn De Lesseps Under Fire At The RHONY Season 11 Reunion
The teaser for the Season 11 Real Housewives of New York City reunion has dropped, and as expected, the ladies brought the drama. It appears that the women discussed everything from Tinsley Mortimer’s split from Coupon Cabin CEO Scott Kluth to Bethenny Frankel’s ex Dennis Shields’ overdose, but it’s LuAnn de Lesseps’ diva behavior and struggles with sobriety that really had the ladies talking.
Mortimer, Frankel, de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, and Sonja Morgan joined host Andy Cohen to talk about everything that went down during Season 11, and the cast is obviously done with de Lesseps’ behavior. Her ego, attitude, and entitlement now that she is a cabaret star are getting old, and the ladies told her exactly how they feel about it.
De Lesseps’ seemingly cavalier attitude about her sobriety is also upsetting her co-stars, and they confronted her about this during the three-part reunion special.
“You failed yourself. I’m not going to give you a f***ing break,” Singer told de Lesseps in reference to the Countess’ failing a court-ordered alcohol test and violating her probation. De Lesseps admitted that she “slipped,” but the ladies weren’t going to let her behavior slide.
Friend of the show, Barbara Kavovit, also showed up to remind de Lesseps that she’s “not Adele,” and de Lesseps responded by telling Kavovit to “take that and shove it up your a**.”
According to OK! Magazine , de Lesseps has reportedly asked for a major raise for next season and that has put her on the “chopping block,” so it isn’t clear if she will be coming back for Season 12.
However, she has revealed that she is writing a memoir, so fans will get to find out all the details about everything from de Lesseps’ eight-month marriage to Tom D’Agostino Jr. to her time in rehab after her Christmas Ever 2017 arrest.
"I've been keeping a diary of everything that has happened to me," LuAnn de Lesseps explained. "I've been sober for eight months, and the therapists urge you to be honest about yourself. But many of the things written about me have been false, so this book is my chance to lay myself bare and also set the record straight."
Part one of the Real Housewives of New York City reunion special airs July 11th on Bravo.
