While fans of The Real Housewives of New York are waiting for official news of who will participate in the new version of the reality series, Luann de Lesseps does not stop. The beloved OG is currently on tour with her popular cabaret show and promoting her non-alcoholic rosé wine. Showbiz spoke with de Lesseps about her various business ventures, what her future looks like on the show, her dreams outside of reality TV, and much more. Check out some highlights and watch the full interview below.
Luann de Lesseps says she would like to return to OG series ‘RHONY’
When Andy Cohen announced that RHONY would get a new look by being split into two different shows, fans didn’t know what to expect. One show will feature the OGs and another will feature a younger, more diverse cast. But de Lesseps isn’t ready to say goodbye to the show.
“I love the idea of filming with the OGs because I know all of them. I think it’s hard when you have a new cast person who doesn’t quite fit in,” he told us. “And I think it’s really smart at the end of the day to do a new cast and then do the original cast. And now that I’ve had time to sit with it, I think it’s great.”
She disagrees with recent comments from Eboni K. Williams about Williams being kicked out of the group.
Regarding Lesseps’ comments about newcomers to the show having a hard time acclimating, for many viewers, it can be applied to Williams’ first season. Williams became the first full-time black housewife on the show. And her experience wasn’t the best when it came to dealing with microaggressions and the history of race in America.

For the first time in franchise history, there was no reunion show. And Williams isn’t ruling out the fact that it may be because the producers, executives and his co-stars don’t want to tackle the first season of him. In a recent interview, he accused her co-stars, with the exception of Sonja Morgan, of firing her. de Lesseps disagrees.
“I don’t know what she thinks, but I have no hard feelings towards Ebony,” he insists. “And I thought we all ended on a good note. I wouldn’t say that’s the truth. Maybe that’s her truth, but not mine.”
The Countess details how her love of entertainment morphed into her cabaret routine.
In recent years, de Lesseps has branched out into the world of cabaret, using the show to promote his show, which is now touring the United States and Canada. Ironically, it was not her idea to embark on a career in the world of cabaret.
“I have an old friend who is near and dear to me, and he said to me, ‘Luann, you love to throw parties, you love to tell jokes to your friends, and you love to sing for your friends. I have news for you: you are a cabaret artist. And I was like, ‘Oh, do you think so?’ And I didn’t really do anything about it at the time. and i married tom [D’agostino] and I was busy getting married and getting divorced,” she explained.
The reality star says her unfortunate arrest following an encounter with a police officer in Palm Becah was a turning point for her. From there, she realized that she needed to get out of the way and take control of her life. Cabaret was the perfect outlet for her.
“I have to get up. And this is my moment. And she felt good. It was just the right time,” she said. “I didn’t realize there was kind of a void for Cabaret at the time… Liza [Minelli] he is no longer acting. [I partnered with] Billy Stritch, who is my musical director and has been since 2018… And I feel like this cabaret thing came naturally and feels like a natural thing to me.”
Her line of non-alcoholic beverages was born because she couldn’t find anything tasty on the market.
de Lesseps’ journey to sobriety has been heavily featured on the show. Even recently, he had a mishap in New York, but he takes responsibility and sees it as an opportunity to start over. Meanwhile, he understands that there are others who share his walk, and others who do not like alcohol at all.
The star says that in the midst of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and not drinking during that time, she couldn’t find any mocktails she liked. So, he opted to create his own non-alcoholic drink. And she is proud of the result. The drink, Fosé, is now available to purchase online and at local New York bars and restaurants.
“I wanted a product that had great ingredients that were healthy. There’s rosemary and natural tannins and oak and all these beautiful ingredients that are not only good for you but make you feel good,” she gushed. “It’s low in calories. It’s in a beautiful bottle. And I felt that that was what was missing in the market. And that’s how Fosé came to me.”
