Let the Countess sing: Luann de Lesseps performs at Foxwoods
Place your bets. When Luann de Lesseps does her cabaret act Saturday at Foxwoods, how many “Real Housewives” fans will bellow, “Jovani!!!!!”?
Place your bets. When Luann de Lesseps does her cabaret act Saturday at Foxwoods, how many "Real Housewives" fans will bellow, "Jovani!!!!!"?
Devotees of the "New York" franchise will know exactly what I'm talking about. In one episode, when Luann was performing, fellow "Housewife" Dorinda Medley drunkenly yelled the name of that designer repeatedly. (Dorinda helped connect Luann with gowns from Jovani for the performance, but she was then upset that Luann didn't invite her boyfriend to the show — or something like that, because who can keep track of all the drama on this series?)
In any case, Luann has turned her cabaret act into a going concern. During her "#CountessAndFriends" gigs, she trots out her tunes like "Money Can't Buy You Class" and "Girl Code."
Will she reference the recent uproars in her life (a quickie marriage, an arrest for battery, trespassing and disorderly intoxication, and rehab)? You'll find out.
And local connection alert: The Countess is a Nutmeg State girl. She grew up in Berlin, Conn.
Luann de Lesseps, 8 p.m. Saturday, Fox Theater, Foxwoods; $35-$79; 1-800-200-2882.
