Luann and quit smoking and drinking and is regularly attending yoga classes and AA meetings. She is also furious preparing for her upcoming sold out cabaret show Countess & Friends at the Manhattan nightclub Feinstein’s 54 Below on February 27th. They show which is scripted now includes addressing her arrest. In a recent, NYT story, the author was present while she was rehearsing…
“I had a list of songs I wanted to sing tonight, but as it turns out I am reconsidering some of them — like ‘Jailhouse Rock’ and ‘I Fought the Law and the Law Won,’” said Ms. de Lesseps, dressed in Lululemon pants, a black turtleneck and velvet slippers. “Craaaazy,” she crooned like an unhinged Patsy Cline, “for thinking I could get out of those handcuffs. I can’t avoid the whole story of what happened to me in Palm Beach,” Ms. de Lesseps said. “I’m trying to keep it light while also taking it seriously.” [Source NYT]
She and Sonja seem inseparable lately. She will be appearing on Luann’s show. And apparently while they were in Cartagena, Luann and Sonja were working a Hamilton-inspired version of Money Can’t Buy You Class. Sonja will beat box. I am not making this up.
Bethenny has introduced her skinny girl line of jeans. I first thought this photo was from Carole’s Cosmopolitan event. For some reason, Carole wrote a story about completing the New York Marathon last year and sold it to Cosmo. The them seems to be that doing things makes you confident not the other way around.
So I saw this photo of Bethenny limply holding up a confidence is key sign, it felt like a dig at Carol to me. It doesn’t look like these two are coming to each others promotions. If they are, they are certainly not front and center.
I am not sure why these women had a falling out. If I had to guess, I think it might be Carole’s insufferable politics. While Carole and Dorinda have similar politics, Dorinda is much less fanatical about it. Carole is losing her mind over the Trump presidency while a lot of us are just hoping that it ends soon and we all make it out alive. Or doing things at the local level to effect the changes we want to see. Carole just screeches and rants and it’s exhausting. I really can’t think of any other reason for the breakup of Carole and Bethenny.
Heather Thompson was at Carole’s event though, so they are still good! Is Dorinda’s foot in a boot in the photo above?
In more general news. Everyone seems to be in separate locations this weekend. Bethenny is at a beach, Luann is in the mountains. Is filming coming to an end? That would mean it is almost time for the show to come back! I’m ready for it.
I would like to state for the record that Tinsley Mortimer’s pigtails are cute. But I know y’all are going to hate on them. Sigh.
