You Have Never, EVER Seen Luann de Lesseps' Hair Like This Before

Before she was a cabaret star dripping in Jovani, Luann de Lesseps was a nurse in a crisp white uniform. The Real Housewives of New York City pal once said this about her surprising past: "I happened to marry a French aristocrat but I had worked since I was 16 years old, babysitting and washing dishes in rest home. I became a nurse because I fell in love with elderly."

But if you still don't believe that this one-time countess worked in close proximity to bedpans, then do we have the photo for you. 

Luann just posted throwback snap of herself as a nurse. In addition to seeing how happy she looked in her uniform, we also got a peek at Luann with a had of short, feathered black hair. She looks entirely different — and yet, that smile is unmistakably Lu's. 

What better way to celebrate National Certified Nurses Day?
