Countess Luann Relapses!

It was only a matter of time before the Countess collapsed under the pressure of the spotlight and her highly successful cabaret show. Yes, it has been confirmed that 'RHONY' star Luann de Lesseps has relapsed after her second stint in rehab, a stint which caused her to miss the season 10 housewives reunion that took place over the summer of 2018. As you may recall, stint number one occurred after a drunken night in Palm Beach when de Lesseps assaulted a police officer and was arrested. Her fall from grace was documented during the Bravo series, which she has been a part of since the very beginning in March 2008. Viewers watched her leave rehab and attempt to pick up the pieces of her life back in New York as she embarked on her #CountessandFriends cabaret tour. But, she hit a brief snag when a lawsuit was filed by her ex-husband, Count de Lesseps along with her two children, Victoria and Noel when she attempted to sell her Sag Harbor home in an attempt to purchase a home upstate. She started hitting a downward spiral and, as we learned at the reunion, it was co-star Bethenny Frankel (and friend and new housewife, Barbara Kavovit) who staged an intervention and helped her get into rehab for a second time. 

As season 11 began, Luann was over 50 days sober and talked about how performing kept her sober as she was constantly working. But, Bethenny addressed how Lu should have still been in the rehab she established for her but left in order to continue touring. It looks like she left too soon. According to Us Weekly, de Lesseps had an alcohol test performed on the 21st of last month by her probation officer. That was when the Countess admitted she had two mimosas post her Chicago performance and was given the chance to go into an outpatient program but declined as it would interfere with her touring schedule. She also said no to an alcohol monitoring device, deeming it "too intrusive." 

She feels she will benefit from more AA meetings but that is all she has said about this incident for the time being. If you are familiar with the RHONY, the women are always having cocktails, even drinking at the spa as soon as Luann left rehab. She says it is fine with her but how can you really be the only sober one all of the time? Is Luann deceiving herself by being completely sober or does she really have a problem that needs to be addressed before her cabaret show? Let us know!

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now?
