LuAnn de Lesseps Biography

An original cast member of one of the most successful franchises in television history, The Real Housewives of New York, Luann de Lesseps was just ranked the #1 Housewife by TV Guide, topping all 46 housewives across all franchised cities. The hit show is now entering its 12th season but Luann is just hitting her stride. The model-turned-Countess has transformed herself into an author, philanthropist, actor and bona fide cabaret star.

This past year de Lesseps started packing venues with her show, #COUNTESSANDFRIENDS, to rave reviews from venerable publications such as Vanity Fair and The New York Times. #COUNTESSANDFRIENDS is filled with hilarious stories, one-of-a-kind anecdotes, and songs in her inimitable style.

Alongside Grammy nominated musical director Billy Stritch, Luann has performed on an all-star bill at New York City’s Town Hall with icons Liza Minnelli and Chita Rivera, to name a few. She has also performed with the legendary Natalie Cole.

When not on The Real Housewives of New York, Luann can be seen on programs such as TODAY, The View, The Talk, Dr. Oz, Wendy Williams, E! Entertainment, Steve Harvey, Access Hollywood and, of course, Watch What Happens Live. She also has appeared in scripted series such as Hulu's Difficult People and Law & Order: SVU alongside Mariska Hargitay.

Luann also believes in giving back and has worked with many charities, including God's Love We Deliver, The American Cancer Society, GLAAD and ACE Partnership for the Homeless. Luann has launch the Feelin' Jovani bomber jacket alongside her new hit single of the same title to support Women's Prison Association's Women Care Program and The Young Women's Freedom Center.

Along with her children Victoria and Noel and their dog Aston, De Lesseps splits her time between her homes in New York City, Upstate New York and the Hamptons, the latter of which was featured in Architectural Digest.

She continues to tour with #COUNTESSANDFRIENDS, the 12th season of The Real Housewives of New York City is currently filming as she is working on a follow-up to her successful first book, Class With the Countess.
