Luann de Lesseps Declares 'Not Drinking Is Exhausting'


People.com:
Luann de Lesseps is finding her cool after an uncool year!

The Real Housewives of New York City star, 52, debuted her #CountessAndFriends cabaret show at New York City’s Feinstein’s/54 Below on Tuesday evening.

Dressed in a nude diamanté dress and a tiara, de Lesseps opened her show with The Beatles’ 1967 hit “With A Little Help From My Friends” before transitioning into a medley of her hits for which she received a roaring response from the crowd.

“I feel so much love in here,” the mother of two said to the audience which included pals Michelle Collins, Sonja Morgan and Kelly Bensimon, as well as ex-boyfriend Jacques Azoulay who was in attendance with his girlfriend.

“I had a list of songs but had to reconsider ‘Jailhouse Rock,'” de Lesseps joked making reference to her arrest in Palm Beach, Florida, on Christmas Eve when she was charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer/firefighter/EMT, resisting arrest with violence and threatening a public servant.

De Lesseps, who had married to ex-husband Tom D’Agostino in Palm Beach on last New Year’s Eve before their divorce seven months later, pleaded not guilty to the charges and a hearing is set for April.

Even through tough times, she channeled her experiences into positive can-do attitude specifically with humor. “I fought the law and the law won,” de Lesseps told the crowd, happily making fun of herself. “Crazy for thinking I could get out of those handcuffs.”
