Back in 2011, Anderson Cooper had some strong words for Countess Luann's classic anthem, “Chic, C’est la Vie." He commented on the track during an episode of his CNN show, noting, “Despite the fact that she can’t really sing, she has released a song and I use the term ‘song’ loosely.” Well, four years later the Real Housewives of New York star is back with a new track, "Girl Code," and recalling the time the newsman expressed his opinion of her pop career on national TV.
“At first I was hurt,” she told the New York Post. “And then I thought, he spent a full five minutes on me on CNN and dragged me under the bus. And then I was like, he must really love me. Boys pick on you if they love you.”
In the years since, it seems that relations between the two have gotten better. “I want you to call Anderson Cooper, because at amfAR [the gala in June], he said, ‘I was not nice to you Luann. This time around, anything you want.’ He owes me one.” She even has a way for him to really fix things between them. “I want him to send me a selfie video of him singing, ‘you broke the girl code.’ ”
Your move, Anderson.
Regardless of if we ever see that selfie video, Luann does think that there's a message in her song for women of all ages. “The song is important for every generation,” she said. “You don’t go stealing your girlfriend’s boyfriend.”
