Luann De Lesseps

New York City Housewife, "The Real Housewives of New York City"

Luann De Lesseps is everyone's favorite countess. The model-turned-countess has transformed herself into an author, philanthropist, actor, and bona fide cabaret star.

Luann authored the book Class with the Countess: How to Live with Elegance & Flair and is currently working on a follow-up. Her globally known dance hits "Money Can't Buy You Class," "Chic C'est La Vie," and "Girl Code" resulted in her own Pandora station. Recently, Luann launched the Countess Luann collection with SuperJeweler, inspired by her love of statement pieces. Her two children, Victoria and Noel, are both accomplished artists and entrepreneurs.

Luann continues to challenge herself and expand her horizons with frequent hosting and guest appearances on shows like the "Today Show," "The View," "Steve Harvey," "Wendy Williams," "The Talk," "Dr. Oz," "Access Hollywood," and others. She appeared as a guest star on the popular Hulu show "Difficult People," and fans can still see her in airings of "Law & Order: SVU," alongside Mariska Hargitay.

This past year, Luann made her cabaret debut with her show #COUNTESSANDFRIENDS with sold out shows at Feinstein's 54 Below in New York City, sparking her to take her show on tour visiting cities coast to coast. The national tour continues to sell out.

A champion of many charities, including God's Love We Deliver, the American Cancer Society, GLAAD, and ACE Partnership for the Homeless, Luann currently divides her time between her homes in New York City, Upstate New York, and the Hamptons.
