LuAnn de Lesseps of the Real Housewives of New York City
Could The Real Housewives of New York City's LuAnn de Lesseps be the next in line to add star power to a Marine Corps Ball? Well, she's still waiting for her own YouTube proposal but (take note, fellas!) the Countess doesn't see anything wrong with using social media for that long distance invitation.

"GT Scotty Moore asked Mila Kunis to the Marine Ball on YouTube because (in his own words), 'I do feel bad for putting her on the spot, but it's not like I was going to bump into her on the streets of Musa Qal'eh between now and the ball.' In this case, because he was deployed in Afghanistan, it was appropriate for SGT Moore to use social media," LuAnn writes in her weekly "What Would the Countess Do?" column for OK! Magazine.

Whether you receive a personalized viral invite or not, the New York mom encourages everyone to support our men and women in uniform. "If you can't go to a ball, a great way to honor and help American soldiers is to sponsor a USO care package," she writes. "Find out how you can help, HERE!"
