Money can't buy you class and it can't buy you forgiveness. A Countess never forgets a double-crosser.
Countess LuAnn is one of the few ladies left from the early years of The Real Housewives of New York. As you have very well heard by now, the cast has been wiped clean save for herself, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan. The rest of the ladies have been let go in order to usher in a new set of housewives for the coming season.
Keeping things classy as always, LuAnn hasn't spoken in much detail about her cast and the firing, but during the Housewives tour stop in Atlantic City Saturday night, the Countess finally gave her two cents … on EVERYTHING!
“I really felt bad that she wasn’t coming back. And Kelly – I’m going to miss the girls, I really am, but I’m excited about the new season and missing the new girls. I have great memories with all the women. We made that show what it was from the beginning … We’re like a weird, sick family. Jill and I started the show together with Ramona and Alex. Kelly came on later, but It’s really sad to see them go because it’s something we created and made successful together. I will certainly miss them, but I’m looking forward to the new season. I haven’t met the new women yet – wish me luck!"
Oh, we do, especially considering that it sounds like you'll need these ladies as allies. As LuAnn went on, she shared that she is still furious with remaining housewife Ramona Singer for what went down between her and her daughter and the blow out they had during the reunion special. She explains:
“Ramona is Ra-mean-a. I see Ramona, and I run the other direction. There’s part of her I love and part of her I hate. She says the damnedest things – it rolls out of her mouth, and she thinks she can get away with it. She’s not going to get away with it, because it’s ‘on’ for the next season … I haven’t seen her since the reunion. She invited me to her party and I’m like ‘hello? Come on. Really?! You say that to me, and you expect me to show up and say ‘hi’?’ No. Not after you go after my kids. I try and keep peace, but not after you go after my children and my relationship with my kids. I’m a single parent trying to raise two teenagers by myself – on my own. Give me any excuse why you don’t want to be in my music video – Turtle Time, Pinot Grigio – but that grossed me out.”
Say what you will, but she has a point. We were pretty sure there was an unspoken but understood rule that Housewives can attack any part of another's life except their kiddies. Ramona crossed that line and she doesn't deserve to be forgiven until she proves that she feels real remorse over her betrayal.
Maybe she's just saving that for the next season premiere.
