Kelly is a sweetheart and I hope she finds someone great to spend her life with but until then, she needs to keep an open mind about dating. I suggested to her that she lighten up and just have fun. She needs to be more trusting of people if she is going to have the relationship she dreams about.
I think it was nice that Sonja and Alex met for lunch to work out their differences, although they will never agree on Simon or what happened at the Marriage Equality March. Sometimes friends have to agree to disagree to remain friends.
Kelly's response to Ramona's invitation to the Women's Venture event was completely appropriate even if did take a while to gather her thoughts. She wished Ramona well and congratulated her. Ramona went overboard when she responded that if Kelly didn't support her she wouldn't support Kelly.
The Wine Connection is a social event created by Jacques that combines wine tasting with the opportunity to meet people. I was glad that Kelly, Sonja and Cindy were able to come and in the end they had a great time. The wine was amazing. Find out more Wine Connection at Winesup.com.
LuAnn - you made a comment on tonight's show that was really inspiring -- "you should try everything once". I like that!
LuAnn I am not trying to sound ugly but you are such a put on you really don't have class you are a snob boring on this show I am sure you are a nice person but you don't show it on the show . You and Heather are two people the show could do without . show this season is boring
Hi Luanne! First of all, I love you on the show! I just have a question for you. In past seasons, you have mentioned that you are Native American, and I just wanted to know which tribe you claim?, I am a full blooded Native American, half Choctaw and half Pawnee, and was just curious. Thanks for being you...you are quite entertaining. : ) Also, congrats on your new love and I wish nothing but the best for you and your family.
Countess de Lesseps, I just want to say that I love the show and you are one of my favorite housewives, I absolutely love the turqouise necklace that you have worn on several episodes, you wore it when you were recording your song "Money can't buy you class" which I really like, that is when I first noticed the necklace and was wondering where you got it as I would absolutely love it and would like to have one myself, please let me know, Thank you so much!

LuAnn- I just wanted to say that you add class to the show, it's so nice to see that no matter what the drama is you always act like a true lady. alex should take lessons from you. Wishing you all the best Jolinda
As always you brought moments of grace and elegance to the show. Your connection with Jacques is visibly apparent. You seem to make a great couple. Your blog is short and sweet, but says it all very accurately! Looking forward to more of you!
Not nice...saying Alex shouldn't quit her day job. Not everyone is a cookie cutter idea of what you think a model looks like Luann. Kelly saying that not all models are good looking. True, we all don't see beauty in the same way. We all have our impression of what good looking is. It seemed Kelly was saying Alex isn't good looking. Maybe not to her...but to others yes. Kelly isn't my idea of pretty but I have seen beautiful pictures of her. I am really put out by the mean remarks. We are all beautiful in our own ways.
I died laughing over the spa moment in the show! It was hilarious. I also could not stop laughing over the wine tasting with the other single women. You were so adorable with Jacques and so into him and oblivious to how funny the women were being about the situation. It is easy to see that you are in a much better and happier place in your life and it comes across. I think that this season we are able to see more of the "real" Countess Luanne than ever before and you are delightful. So happy for you!
A couple of seasons ago you criticized Romona for giving the "just go out and have fun" dating advice to B. What changed your mind?
LuAnn, you the best! You bring class and dignity to the show. You know how to handle yourself when situations become uncomfortable and youre able to handle anyone and anything. Please continue to be the rock that this show needs. Oh and please tell Jill to stop whining! He comment to Alex at the march, "Quit picking on me!" I thought was very childish and weak! Please talk some sence in her. And the comment you made about Alex who has found her voice and now she needs to be quite was exactly right....
I AGREE with you, LuAnn, about Ramona. She is tough, tough on Kelly, and not a good friend to all. She has been cruel towards Kelly, and in many ways this year has become the instigator between Sonja and Alex, Alex and Jill, Cindy and herself, and of course she and Jill. Her pattern is clear. YOU, on the other hand, have been welcoming to all, and are a good friend to Kelly, at a time when she needs it most. Bless you! LOVED your wine social with Jacques. Viva vino!
Concept for consideration: Welcoming and appreciating others are main elements of grace and sophistication in well mannered society. The mark of a truly elegant lady is the kindness she exhibits towards other, never downgrading or speaking negatively of others.
Even when you are in the midst of the fray, you are above the fray. You are a refreshing exception to the usual trash the comprises reality TV.
You say great an inspiring things then ruin it with little jabs here and there at some of the others. I wish you would be the classy lady all the time.
Countess, I love the tan boots you wear. I noticed them last season as well, dont you think maybe you need a new pair? Why are you, Sonja, Kelly & Cristy so ill mannered towards Alex & Simon? Please re-read your book.
You are one of my favorites in all the housewives shows. I really think alot of the women should take advice from you and follow in your footsteps to act in a classy way. You comment on Ale not quiting her day job is right on point. She is a very unattractive women, she looks like a skeleton and she always slouches which is a sign of insecurity. In my opionon you should be the one modeling. You are gorgeous and you have a great sense of style. It is also very obvious how happy your new sweetie makes you happy and you guys look so cute together. Im so happy for you that you found love and with someone who is crazy about you.
You are open minded and seem to be really helping to build a real friendship with Kelly. YOU are awesome! Would love to see more scenes of you and your amazing life.
REDDIRTGIRL, When one has a fabulous pair of boots, and a high-quality designer pair at that, one wears them with pride season after season. Good taste, good design is SEASONLESS. Wake up!
You are absolutely FABULOUS dahling!!
I just adore the posh posh accent you always use. One should always try to be at their best while filimg a reality show. Quite remarkable!
I KNOW I AM A SHOW BEHIND...JUST CATCHING UP! AND I LOVE ALEX, BUT WHEN YOU SAID SOMETHING ABOUT HER FAMOUS SHOE DESIGNER EVEN BEING CAPABLE OF MAKING A MISTAKE...WELL, I ALMOST SPIT UP MY DRINK! THAT WAS VERY FAST AND FUNNY!
LuAnn, I am always a bit taken back when you make very snide remarks during your interviews. Having written a book on "class", it seems to me that you should remember your manners as well. As someone a bit older and perhaps wiser, it's best to say nothing if you have nothing nice to say, that's good manners in my book.
LuAnn, I am not a fan of yours but it is nice to see you happy, in love, and loosen up a little. Best wishes to you!
LuAnn - I have so enjoyed watching you this season. It's so fun to watch how classy doesn't mean stuffy. Have a great day!
I think no matter what the situation if Ramonas in it, you're gonna blame her. I think her daughter had it right , she always says that. Ive never seen you @ an event of hers . Only the model walk but I think we know why you chose that one. Money cant buy ya class.
I have only recently started watching the show (re-run episodes on Slice TV) and I think I am a season behind. I just saw the recap episode of season two, when the ladies said that you appeared to use the Countess title too often and came across as someone who thought was better than others. That is clearly a matter of opinion, because in my opinion, you have never come across that way. You are a very graceful, caring, genuine, and elegant lady :) Your class shines through, no matter what the situations have been :) I have learned a few things from you, just from watching the show, (such as when everyone was discussing class at Jill's house on season one- and you said that class means making everyone feel comfortable and welcome). Take care and all the best to you and your loved-ones. I will keep watching-- you ladies are awesome!
