LuAnn de Lesseps: No Longer a Countess, Still Never a Princess

Lu is the gift that keeps on giving. Love how one article refers to Alexandre as her first ex-husband.

Thank you for making me guffaw despite my piss-poor mood. I'm cranky like my kids are suing me — I needed the laugh. :) The White Kanye will always be funny. Always. 

And season 1 Lu hanging out with the lost Vanderpump tribe? Oh, quel dommage, Countess.

Wow. That photo of Lu, Vic, whoever that guy is and that scary looking woman with her boobs hanging out is something that I can’t even find words for. Who, in her right mind, would post a photo like that? I am too old for this world now.

I just saw on Twitter that Lu is back in rehab

 

She will not be attending the reunion.

Apparently LuAnn has authorized Bethenny to speak on her behalf - according to People:

The reality star has only authorized costar Bethenny Frankel to speak on her behalf.

“This weekend, Luann was surrounded by her girlfriends and decided — with their support — that in light of recent circumstances, it is the healthiest choice for her not to attend Tuesday’s reunion taping so that she can continue in her healing process,” Frankel tells PEOPLE. “Luann is now surrounded by a core group of people who truly have her best interests at heart and who are working to make sure she gets the help she needs.”

“Bravo has been very supportive of Luann during this time. It’s a brave and honest decision by her, and everyone is rallying around her and wants the best for her,” Frankel explains.

Bravo confirmed that she is not taping the season 10 reunion.

I don't see Luann using rehab as excuse to skip the reunion & questions surrounding the lawsuit.  Yes, she announced her divorce after the reunion was filmed last season but she in no way tried to act like all was well when it was filmed.  She shared that they slept apart the night prior and acknowledged there were ongoing issues.  It's not her fault the reunions are filmed so much prior to air date.

Luann's is pretty direct.  She came back from rehab this season and was very candid and matter-of-fact about her arrest and the details surrounding it.  If she feels she should return to rehab, I applaud her.  Too many people would try to save face and not admit to needing help.

I want to believe that this is more about her still needing help/therapy but I also think she is trying to avoid talking about the lawsuit as well. I really think Luann is worried that some of the HWs (mainly Carole) know more details about this, Adam's friendship with Noel, and she doesn't want that info made public.

I don't buy that Luann's return to rehab isn't timed to escape questions regarding the lawsuit that her first ex (love that!) and kids have brought against her. IIRC Luann let it slip last year at the reunion that she and Tom had spent the night apart. I don't think she had planned to reveal that, but in any case was still claiming that all was well. And then of course a couple of weeks later she filed for divorce, saying that had not been getting along for ages. (Or forever in my books). 

Less than a couple of weeks ago Lu posted pictures wishing every one a happy 4th of July, and claiming to be 6 months sober. But the pic Victoria posted 2 months previously showed Lu with an empty martini glass in front of her. So which is it, Lu? And if she was sober up until the 4th of July, why is she reentering rehab 12 days later? And doesn't AA which I think Lu claims to be attending tell people to avoid relationships for a year? But she is hot and heavy with her manager. To echo someone else (I don't know if it was someone on this site or not) I want to like Lu, but she makes it so darn hard. I think she will say and do what is best for Lu, and everyone else including her kids come a distant second in her priorities. 

At this point I really don't care if Lu returns next year. If she does, we will hear lies about how the whole trust fiasco wasn't her fault, blah blah blah. Go away, Lu.

If Luann needs rehab, I wish her well.  However, I think she wants to avoid questions about the lawsuit.    I don't believe she's trying to avoid the HWs (mainly Carole) because they have details about it.  Avoiding them certainly doesn't prevent those details from being revealed.   It's not like HWs never talk about each other behind their backs.

Thank you.

I am proud to say I never watched VPR - not even once.

You’re missing out on a great train wreck.

That's an interesting theory but honestly, I think the idea that Carole has the goods because she's semi-fucking Adam who may be friends with Noel assumes that Carole cares way more about Luann's business than I ever would have previously assumed. 

I'm leaning towards this theory - Luann is embarrassed because intentional or just being a dumb ass (and I think it could be either) she's really fucked up over the money from the house not going into the trust. She knows that this all coming out right before the reunion means it blows up that she's stealing from her kids. She avoided a lot of questions about her marriage by keeping it quiet until AFTER the reunion last year. So, why not duck out of the reunion and avoid publicizing the lawsuit more than has already been done and let the topic die off the way her idiotic marriage would have faded if she hadn't gone on a drunken rampage?

Carole has never been one to do interviews with the press/blogs/gossip pages giving details about another HW before and I don't see that changing now. But, Carole will call you out during the reunion if you lie about something. So, I can see Luann preferring to not risk any questions about the trust, while at the same time, needing some serious counseling/help to get her life in order.

I just can't relate to the cast - probably because they're so young.

Carole said that she knew a lot about Luann/the kids in a recent blog (before the lawsuit was announced) via Noel talking to/revealing things to Adam. So, I'm sure Luann doesn't want any more dirty laundry shown during the reunion.

No way I relate to them, I’m too old but it’s like watching a car crash. Once you look you cannot look away. They’re a disaster.

Agreed. I remember Carole's trainwreck of a blog as well. But honestly, I assume Carole's dirt revolved around Luann fucking someone because I really doubt Luann shared the complexities of a trust fund as part of her divorce settlement with her ex with the guy who babysat her son and sometimes made them meals. Oh and who was fucking her frenemy Carole on the side. 

YMMV of course, but Carole's dirt was most likely an embarrassing tryst.

I think Luann doesn't want the lawsuit as part of the reunion discussion. Made all the worse that she was already going to be in the hotseat as the alcoholic who did all the crimes.

Good!    I'm glad we're back to LuAnn wants to avoid questions about the trust.  I think the trust issue came up recently because LuAnn announced she was going to sell the Sag Harbor house.

It was about Luann's sex life and how she was out/gone more than at home. But, I have to wonder if Noel didn't confide in Adam about other things or more likely, Luann is worried he did and that Carole knows more than and could reveal it during the reunion.

I'm sure it did come up then because had she put their names on the deed, she would need their approval/agreement to sell the house before she put it on the market.

And here's where I deathlessly cry !!!horseshit!!! -- not at you, mwell345, just at the absurdity of above^^.

Lu has a publicist, she has at least 1 attorney and she has a grown daughter -- but she's authorizing Bethenny to speak on her behalf? Bethenny and Lu have -- seemingly -- been more congenial this season than in the past but no way in hell are they tight. Bethenny being the authorized spokesperson has to be a Bravo demand -- as in All right, Luann --we'll let you out of the reunion and go along with this BS rehab story but you have to agree to let the cast member with the highest profile be the person out front sharing updates. This way we get maximum coverage and your paycheck is protected.

Not if it was in a trust and LuAnn was the administrator/trustee or whatever it's called.  

But yes I think it came up because of the pending sale.

Yeah, that's why I think this is way too convoluted of a reason. Carole's blog threat was about things that Carole had witnessed. For Carole to know anything about the trust situation, we have to believe it was discussed in front of Adam by either Luann or Noel, neither of whom seem *that* close to Adam. They would have to discuss a rather dry topic with Adam. Then Adam would have to raise the topic with Carole, and Carole would need to remember it, all so that Carole can spring it on Luann at the reunion?

Sorry, I think Luann is just embarrassed by the whole mess and avoiding dealing with it. 

I don't think there's any concern that Carole in particular would delight in revealing even more of Luann's sordid deeds.

I have a problem with someone like LuAnn (if she isn't having a legitimate addiction crisis right now) taking a space in a rehab from someone who actually needs it.

Do these fancy spa rehab places screen for people who might be going for BS reasons or do they not care as long as they get money?

Let's not forget that Carole hates LuAnn.   However I think you're right.  

The Noel/Adam/Carole trust thing isn't believable.

IMO They just care about the money.
