Gird Your Loins, Jim Chanos

This Memorial Day in Bridgehampton, Kynikos founder Jim Chanos will be honored for his contributions to Miracle House, a charity “a charity that helps caregivers and patients who come to New York in search of medical treatment.” This is lovely and Jim is very generous. That’s not what we’re here to talk about. What we’re here to talk about is the host, LuAnn de Lesseps. The artist formerly known as “The Countess” is a cast member of the New York edition of Real Housewives. Except that LuAnn is no housewife, having divorced her husband, THE COUNT (pictured at left with his former lady), last year. (I’m not proud that I watch this show but I’m not embarrassed either.) LuAnn started off this season on the prowl and now she is getting desperate. Last week she went on a date with a guy named Courte who has who has highlights. She’s also looking for a place to bunk in NYC, having lost the UES townhouse in the settlement and being relegated to the Hamptons home. And, and I feel terrible for judging a reality show housewife by her cover, but I’m thinking she might be looking to land a rich guy. Finally, and most importantly, she’s trying to get her music career off the ground. Jim, we’re warning you because we care.

This chick is going to be on you like white on rice. If you’re feeling yourself get weak, our advice is to play this segment over and over in your head:

    Girl I know says some of her guy friends (age = late 20s) met LuAnn at a club, brought her back to an apt, and partied with her til the morning. This was toward the end of her marriage.

    Yeah, she was dressed as Pocahontas, hitting on some dude dressed as a cowboy. Basement near the bathrooms. Classy broad that one.

  8. guest says:

    @6 she apparently cheated on her husband a bunch with much younger guys (I think they had an open marriage though, or at least an understanding, b/c he was apparently shacking up with an ethopian princess who he left her for).

    Real classy countess – singing the most cheezy song cuz you need the money!! Her ex is apparently broke and she is hanging on a thread

  37. guest says:

    thanks for giving these cunts more press.

  38. guest says:

    Why is it that these plump, sagging old skanks feel the need to parade around half naked? If they’d cover up, at least their targets could fantasize that there’s something nice underneath. And by the time the skank drags the target off to bed, he’d be too drunk to notice what’s unveiled.
