During a rocky life chapter which has included divorce and two stints in rehab, Luann de Lesseps has found solace in songs and sparkling evening gowns. The Real Housewives of New York City pal has often said that her #CountessandFriends has been "therapy" for her. So don't expect her to hang up her Jovani dresses anytime soon ... or anytime within the next few decades.
On August 19, the singer took to Instagram to share a clip of herself speaking to E! News. "Important update/message from moi," she captioned the post.
In the video, Luann shared: "I went to see Chita Rivera the other night doing a cabaret at 54 Below, where my show is. And that's kind of my home in New York; [it] is 54 Below, and I must say: I saw Chita Rivera, she's 85, and I said, 'Wow, I can do this 'til I'm 85 years old.' I really feel like I found my calling."
Watch the 'Wife weigh in on her epiphany in the post below. And if you can't score tickets to her show immediately, don't fret: it looks like Luann's run has no ending in sight.
Although Luann was not at the Season 10 reunion as she had just returned to rehab, she was definitely missed. Below, check out a sneak peek at Part 1 of the reunion, airing Wednesday, August 22, at a special time, 8/7c.
