Oops The Countess Did it Again: Countess Luann de Lesseps “Chic C’est La Vie”

Thank you to the wonderful Lauren Hardage  for sending me this some piece of SE. Once again our favorite Real HouseCountess has decided that being rich and saying darling aren’t all there is in life so she is gracing us with another foray into the music world. Now, let me be real with you here. This is by no means legit music. Mostly this is a bored rich lady talking over a club beat. And just because it’s fun to be on camera, she recruited two of her fellow Housewives (Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimmon-Killet) to seat dance with her in her music video.

As if “Money Can’t Buy You Class” wasn’t enough, LuAnn is now happy to present “Chic, C’est La Vie.” When you couple this music video with Mother Nature’s recent fury, I’m fairly certain that the end of days is near.

For your viewing displeasure…

I’m going to go ahead and say the best part  is when she references each Housewife individually. Ramona you bring the pinot, LuAnn will bring her diamonds.

I’ll be back soon with a review of my new favorite show (move over Ashley!) Love in the Wild.

Until then… stay tuned.

pics from the dressing room, yup that’s awkward. thanks jill zarin.

I love twitter. I follow a ridiculous amount of people and for some unknown reason, about 100 real people and 800 spam bots follow me. So, as I was taking a gander at tweetdeck between projects at work, I noticed a tweet by one Jill Zarin (that’s @jillzarin for any twitter fanatics out there) from Real Housewives of New York.

You may know Jill as the bia that got in a throw down with Bethenny. Or as the writer of the “Secrets of a Jewish Mom.” But probably you know her as the redish-orange haired lady on Real Housewives who is always throwing out back-handed compliments and going to every party (catering to women over 40)  thrown in Manhattan.

Well, today Mrs. Zarin decided to engage her twitter followers in a little dressing room assistance. I usually ask for a dressing room opinion from my bestest friend/shopping buddy kelly, my mom or some random lady in the changing room next door. Instead of going the usual route, Jill thought asking over 125,000 creeps (me included) on the internet was a better idea.

Of course, I should be mocked for 1. following Jill Zarin on twitter and 2. clicking on the link. But I am going to claim it was for writing research and not for my own awkward work place SE.

When Jill posted this she asked for honest opinions. So here goes.

Hey Jill, I’m not really a huge fan of this dress although I do appreciate you sharing this with me and 128,000 of your closest friends. I also respect you doing the fake high-heel pose while modeling this. You must be in a fancy store. Check out that three-way mirror – they definitely don’t have one of those at Forever 21 or TJ MAXX.  Did you already try on the dress in another style/size or is that just the matching jacket?
Most importantly, I think you should not take pictures in a dressing room. For some reason, it kind of creeps me out. Are the Real Housewives cameras in there too?  Is Ramona in there? What about Kelly? Is she just hanging out in that big fancy dressing room eating jelly beans?

So, to make a long story short Jill. Don’t buy that dress. And don’t send anymore dressing room pics.

All the best,
A judgmental Real Housewives enthusiast.

Thankfully, I now know not to click on any more picture links Jill posts. Live and learn people. Live and learn.

Until next time… stay tuned!
