LuAnn de Lesseps

LuAnn discusses Aviva's role in the middle, acupuncture, and Carole's title.

on Jul 2, 20120

Welcome back to my blog. Thanks for watching and for all your comments, I read them all! I wish you a Happy Fourth of July and hope that you get to relax and spend time with family and friends.

My experience with acupuncture was really pleasant. It looks more painful that it actually is. You can feel a calming energy emanating from the needles and the acupuncturist was really professional and encouraging. Now, let's see what happens.

I'm not against IVF in general but Jacques and I have decided to go the holistic route. I don't want to inject hormones into my body or have fertilized embryos implanted just yet; instead, I'm using vitamins, acupuncture ,and other naturopathic approaches. Jacques and I are very much in love and we continue to try the "old fashioned" way!!

I admire that Heather is standing her ground and deciding for herself whether or not to invite Ramona to London. She has every right to invite whom she likes and to have a fun girls trip without the constant pressure of appeasing Ramona. Heather is very independent and secure with herself and she has plenty of friends who love her and make her happy. I think Sonja summed it up best when she said, "you can't always be invited to the birthday party."

LuAnn, you are the most beautiful woman with the best body of all the RHW women.  You carry yourself with such class and you are the epitome of a lady.  I have to ask, the Native American jewelry you wear is so beautiful, is any of it a family heirloom?  I wish you would design NA Jewelry.

#teamRamona!! Honestly I think you should get over your "beef" with her. If you are so high and mighty why are you holding on to this grudge like its not that big of a deal relax already! Anyway I love you style just not you pettiness.

LuAnn, I have to throw you compliments and only ONE comment.  I flipped through the photos of you and Jacques.  You and him make such a beautiful couple!  I loved the photo of you in the black evening dress with the straps.  You are like a bottle of fine wine.  You get more beautiful with age.  If I had a lot of money, I would definitely want you to be my expert on a shopping trip.  You dress so elegantly, beautiful, and sophisticated.  Plus you look FABULOUS in a bikini for someone over 40 and has had two children.  I am 39 and I wouldnt even wear the bikini you wore.  However, the one comment I have is that I do not think blonde is good for you.  You look so much more classy as your dark hair.  Some women are able to pull off being a brunette.  You are one of them.

I always liked you.  I think your so right. I cant believe some of the viewers side w/ Ramona. I miss you and JZ together. Bravo should of dumped RS. But from the way the blogs are reading i think she is starting to see the way people feel about her Pinot filled antics.

Where can we get a necklace like the layered pearl and leather necklace which you are wearing in many of the commentaries you are doing this season of RHONY?. Who is the designer or where can one buy. I just LOVE IT!

Ramona behaves like a mean girl in middle school... well, a drunk mean girl in middle school! But she has a lot of class... all low!  One must consider the source in situations like "Londongate".  Looking forward to seeing what happens!

I love the comments. You hit the nail on the head with Ramona. Lose the Countess title. It's so pretentious. Good luck with the baby. I don't know how it will fit into your busy schedule, but good luck anyway. Ramona chooses the wrong place & time to "confront" Heather. Now that is tacky. Ramona's manners are atrocious.

LuAnn.... it's best to have the marriage before the baby.... are you REALLY considering a baby with a, well, short-term boyfriend?  What message does that send your daughter?

You seem to lack self awareness....I'm just wondering if you are in on the joke?

I think you should take your own advice,and stay out of Heathe & Romonas tif.They may have mad up had you not run to her and tell her "your" opion of Romona.I have tried to like you,but you are so judgemental! Bring it down a notch.I want the old Luann back.When NYHW started you would never have been "mean"to anyone.Season 2 is when you changed.You knocked everything Romona said or did and called her tacky.But talking about your period and how you & your bf are in love and trying the old fashion way is tacky.We all are big girls we don't need a lesen in how to make babies.I do how-ever wish you the best,and hope you do hear the patter of little feet soon.

How do you explain to your teenage children that you are trying to have a baby with a man that you aren't married to? Or, as suspected, is this all just a ploy for camera time. Whatever it is it is boring.

I said it last week, I'll say it again. Does the only relevance you have on the show come from reminding us all how much you hate Ramona? Gee... we get it. You hate her. Can you show us something interesting please?

Hi Luann!

I think you have outgrown the Countess nonsense and should just drop that gig.  You have two lovely children, a wonderful boyfriend and a nice home, you don't need the Countess prop anymore.  It just seems silly at this point.  Just be Luann and have a ball!

 

Best wishes,

 

Alex

I have a question, please dont take this as snarky, because it's not intended that way at all, I think you're great, just a question... Do you think you would have been upset if you weren't invited and that it's easy to say she has the right o invite or not invite Ramona because you were invited? Again; just a question, I am in NO WAY sticking up for Ramona, I myself would not invite her anywhere, she is so incredibly embarrassing! I just want to know how you would ave handled it? I know it would would have been much classier than the way Ramona did, jut wondering. The whole title thing in my opinion is so over rated, I think it's a lot classier to do what Carole has done, and just bring it up inpassing but makes no big deal of it, ya know, because then you get the all the people talking about how petentious youare and all that garb. I just think it makes you more human to put yourself at the normal level instead of trying to be above it, ya know? I love you though, Ithink you have come a long way, and you're a lot more relateable than in the past! :)

I hope that you have another child. Your children are beautiful and so well mannered. Just like their mother. I wish that I could have had a title. It must be fun. I would use it. Ramona has behaved so very badly to you. I don't know how you can be in the same room with her. Threatening you is just her style and so out of line. ICK.

LuAnn, You are one of my favorites. I see why you stay away from Ramona. I have to say that woman acts CRAZY. I have never associated with any one like her , nor could I. I have to say that Sonya may be sweet, but she seems to be out there, somewhere, where I don't know and don't want to. I know you say you want a baby. Why at your age would you? The older you are the more risk. Not just for you, but the baby. I will say if you do have a baby, I wish you all the luck and best wishes.

I agree with all your observations. Ramona just can't stand not being included or being the center of attention. I admire Heather for standing up to her and doing it in such a classy, drama free, way.

Tacky is the right word for Ramona's actions. 

 

I really think you should move to Beverly Hills and join their group! You would fit in well, they have class...well Brandi doesnt, but maybe she will learn from the other girls !

Luann,

I'm enjoying the new ladies on the show this season. I think, Heather is just what Ramona needs. Ramona has been rude for years and not always included everyone, so I think it's good someone is finally giving it back to her. I think, she just can't get a grasp on it.I love it, to be honest.

Good luck with your plans on extending your family.

I always enjoy watching you...you are a classy and elegant woman who knows how and when to mind her manners. You have two hot heads now, Heather and Ramona...good luck, cannot decide who is the more volatile one, I think maybe Heather because she smiles while she is being maniuplative whereas Ramona is a what you see is what you get kind of girl! Good luck with all of them....lots of cattiness for a bunch of grown women!

Hi, Countess!  I got off Facebook some time ago, so I guess here is the only place I can tell you how much I love you!  You are all class!  The Countess RULES!  I agree with everything you wrote in your blog.  I so hope that you and Jacques are able to have a baby together, and really admire you for sharing all that so publicly - I have never had the guts to do so, but many times wish I had.  You've done a great job as a mom and would be a great mom again.  Love you!  xoxo

You stated that "She has every right to invite whom she likes and to have a fun girls trip without the constant pressure of appeasing Ramona"  yet heather did say that she talked to you about it.  Sounds like you had more then a little influence on heathe's "independent" decision-making process.  You are such a hypocrit and disappointment

Love you, LuAnn. You look so cute this season, and Jacques is just adorable.  Good luck with your baby endeavors! 

 

Ramona ... sheesh.  she needs to learn that 'unfiltered' really isn't something to brag about. I'm sure she ruined many a relationship with her 'unfiltered' comments. I just don't get that she thinks that is a good quality?  Isn't there something called 'manners' that most of us use when dealing with people?

LuAnn-

Don't you realize, now, having watched the earlier episodes, that Heather did not intend to invite YOU, either?  Your invitation only came after Aviva declined.  It's certainly no surprise to anyone that you have a huge grudge against Ramona.  You must be happy now that you've found your Jill substitute!

I will agree that they have to work on their issues themselves, at least Aviva tried to ease the situation by getting them to talk. You mentioned to Heather that there was something that you liked about her ( referring to Ramona). They should have had a conversation by themselves without outside influences in regards to the trip and heather should have been honest.

 

In my opinion the sharing of news from Carole major accomplishment to have her book turned into a series. Ramona's wine sold at Target is excellent also because it is accessible to the everyday consumer who shops at Target. Did you imply that Target is a tacky store as well?  The Kardshians have a clothing line at Sears and there are many other celebrities that have products in several major retail stores....

Heather extended an olive branch by including her to London or to shopping at Curve?  I am confused...

I don't trust a word you say regarding Ramona, so you could choose to lay off the topic -- it only makes you look jealous and mean.  Really. Do yourself a favor -- regardless of how else this season plays out via the editors:  Choose the positive things to talk about.  Stop trying to convince anyone to look at what happens via your perspective except the scenes YOU are IN, darling.

LuAnn, I was so happy to see that you are still on the show. You carry yourself so well and you are a wonderful mother. I was so happy to see that your daughter was thankful for her birthday party, and she was not acting like a spoiled brat about it. Then to see you make sure the night was planned for her and not you and your friends was refreshing. It made me sick to see how Ramona's daughter acted and then to have Ramona get jealous of her daughter having a reason to celebrate, that she had one of her own on the same night and in the same building. I have training with alcoholics and Ramona does have a drinking problem, I hope she comes to terms with that some day and gets the help she needs. 

Congrats on the baby making attempt, I wish you luck and all the best!!!!

LuAnn please stop talking about what is going on with Heather and Ramona.  It is what it is and the situation doesn't need fuel on it by you or any of the other ladies.  I want to truly see you in a good place.  You have more important things to do like try to have a baby instead of meeting up with Sonja or Heather and sharing how much you are enjoying that there is an issue with Romona.  It is not becoming of you.  Let it go.  I may have a feeling about Ramona's personality but I wouldn't feel the need to laugh or co-sign every time something happens where Ramona looks crazy or inappropriate.  Let it go.  I want you to show your maturity.

@MichelleGrunner I wasn't aware that marriage was a requirement for having a family.

 @SandraLynn that would be hilarious if she went to Beverly Hills. Lisa would tag her as the phony, pretentious trouble maker she is immediately. She wouldn't last an episode. But as far as the laugh factor, PRICELESS

@RDaniels You are aware that the queen of mean excludes as well? She doesn't invite Ramona to anything... I know you approve, no need to respond. But LuAnn creates problems, breaks up girlfriends and gets in the middle of everyone's business and then denies it.

@Bells1158 I agree! Ramona makes Ramona look ridiculous all by HERSELF!

LuAnn doesn't want to give up the Countess title, so that is why she is willing to have a baby out of wedlock. In this day and age it no longer gives you a scarlet letter.
