So, surprise -- turns out I have a love interest. His name is Russ, and he's so cute, no? He just released a new album and it's great. Musician boyfriends are fun. They write songs about you. Think Mick and Bianca and rented castles and sexy clothes. Okay, well it's not quite like that. At all. At least not so far, but he did write a song about me. It's called "Manhattan" and you can hear it in the show as we're driving around. Russ shot a video for it and I play the girlfriend, naturally. Watch here.

His new album is called "Take Me Home" and you can get it on iTunes, and you should. I love it, especially "Manhattan" and not only because it was written about me. I also love "I Miss Being Lonely" and "So Close to Heaven," even though that song was written about a bunch of other girls on the road. I bought the album too, and I could have gotten it for free.

My favorite scene this week? The de Lesseps clan discussing the "French Problem." First, what did I tell you? LuAnn is my high school French teacher, reincarnate. (See previous post.) Noel is failing French, and possibly math, and he picked a really bad family to fail French in. I'm not worried, though. I think if Noel maintains his new study habits and sticks close to Jacques he'll be fine. Jacques steals the entire show in this scene -- I think he's my favorite Housewife. On French: "It's beautiful but it's useless. Good for the girls, maybe. Do you use your French accent with the girls?" On blaming the French teacher for your grade: What's the accent of the math teacher?
