Countess Luann Opens Up About Sending Her Son Off to College

The #RHONY mom explains how she's preparing for Noel's big move. 

By Jocelyn Vena

They grow up so fast! This fall Countess Luann is sending her son, Noel, off to college. But if you think the soon-to-be academic wants her assistance on his big dorm move-in day, think again. "My son's going to college. I said 'I'll bring you to school, we'll go shopping' and he said 'No, no, no. I'm going to pack up the car and I'm just going to go'," the Real Housewives of New York mom told The Daily Dish about starting this next chapter with the 18-year-old. "So I started crying. And you know he's probably right because I'd be such a mess if I went with him. So maybe he's right, maybe it's better if I don't go." Now, the mother of two is making sure she gets in a lot of mother-son time this summer before he drives off to college "by spending as much time as [she] can with him."

Earlier this year, the proud mama celebrated Noel's final high school milestones (prom and graduation) on Instagram.

Of course Luann is no novice when it comes to sending kids off to university. RHONY fans watched her go through the process with her daughter, Victoria . Relive that moment below.
