‘RHONY’S LUANN DE LESSEPS APOLOGIZES FOR DIANA ROSS COSTUME
Friday, Apr 6, 2018

The Real Housewives of New York City premiered this week and things got shady real fast!

RHONY’s tenth season started this Wednesday night with the ladies celebrating Halloween and unfortunately, not all the costumes were in good taste. Luann de Lesseps tried to pay homage to Diana Ross, but the bronzer was a little too dark and the hair was a bit too big. Understandably so, people were upset including fellow housewife Carole Radziwill who said:

“Luann’s costume is so disrespectful. I think she’s tone-deaf when it comes to cultural stereotypes.”


The Countess apologized on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and explained she had no intention of offending anyone.

“I’m horrified! I never meant to hurt anybody’s feelings. I love Diana Ross and I totally respect Diana Ross. It was really kind of a tribute to her, and it was Halloween… I had bronzer on that I wear normally like the rest of my skin. I’m tan, like right now. So I didn’t add anything to or would ever, ever dream of doing a blackface. Ever. I’m very sorry to everyone out there if I offended anyone.”

Unfortunately, this scandal only adds to Luann’s latest list. Luann and Tom D’Agostino got divorced after only seven months of marriage and plentiful warnings from her fellow housewives about him. Following this, Luann got arrested on a vacation in Palm Beach for “disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer/firefighter/EMT, resisting arrest with violence and threatening a public servant.” She has since been admitted to rehab and is living a sober life.

Ain’t no scandal high enough not to overcome!
