Socialite Whore number 7- Countess LuAnn de Lesseps– Money does buy her class.
A perennial favorite of your living room Countess as she likes to be called (viz marriage, but never mind the divorce) has been striking our collective hearts this past year. Going from a harried housewife trying to come to grips with her insecurity and the hateful remarks of fellow cast mates of the world famous Real Nonsense Housewives of NY have spewed at her (unfortunately the outspoken Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel were voted off the top ten society whore list by the chipmunks that toil fearlessly as our interns) to eventually become reincarnated Queen Bee fixed on the idea that money doesn’t buy her class when in fact if it weren’t for money our Queen would have missed the berthing of her favorite cruise liner “Give Me Fame Today.” Taking things to the next level the Countess decided to make a song that would shock school children and media publicists alike- “Money made me a Jack- Ass.”
And Jack Ass she has been but a lovely one at that. We’ve seen the Countess at a myriad of delicious events where she has walked on stage with her newly toned thighs (yes kids, good looks is not just handed to you on a platter), looked deep into the audience eye’s and reminded them prestige, persona and presence ultimately has little to do with pedigree (in the Countess’s case by default) but every thing to do with a great publicist, hauling yourself to as many candy camera parties and forever smiling into the camera lens and believing that money can indeed buy you class and society.
