Since returning from her second stint in rehab last month, Luann de Lesseps has been back at work on her cabaret show and even attended a Rufus Wainwright concert in West Hampton, New York over the weekend … with fashion designer Michael Kors! But The Real Housewives of New York City mom really had us drooling when she posted a video from the pretty-as-a-picture alfresco dessert party she threw, with her kids Noel and Victoria in tow.
Situated on the back patio of her Southampton home, Luann, her kids, a few friends and her dog Aston gathered around a low coffee table for some cake. Adding to the dreamy scene? Greener-than-green grass, hydrangeas on the table and the beautiful water in the background. Summertime is all about those moments that you want to bottle up and remember forever, and we’re betting this is one of those times for Luann.
And we also know from her interview with Megyn Kelly that Lu has decided to take her Southampton property off of the market, after listing it caused some major turmoil in her family. "The children weren't happy about that because it's their home and I understand that, but I just wanted to move,” she explained to Kelly. “I felt that I needed more privacy and a lot of people know where I am and I just needed a fresh start. The ex-husband came to visit and he decided to block me and sue me. I let him stay in my house because we have a great relationship and we still do. I understand why he did it because I was really going big up there, upstate, with a very big property and since then, I've decided to take something smaller and keep my home for the children because I love them."
So, there you have it! Luann’s relationship with her children is clearly on the mend, she's staying put in her Southampton home, buying something smaller upstate and throwing fabulous dessert parties. Yasss, queen!
