Real Housewives Countess LuAnn de Lesseps Releases ‘Money Can’t Buy You Class’

April 27th, 2010 // 6 Comments

Countess LuAnn de Lesseps puts her talent to work in her new dance single to prove that money can’t buy you a singing class. That’s what she meant right? Oh it’s real?

The Countess of The Real Housewives of New York City, who attended the Goodwill Denim Drive at JCPenny on Saturday, put out a dance single “Money Can’t Buy You Class” and holy auto-tune. I thought it was a joke, but she told People in March that “I sing on the show too, but they never show it because of music [rights] issues. So I said, ‘You know what? I’m going to write my own song about how it doesn’t matter where you’re from — anybody can be classy.’”

On the flip side it’s also about her costars.

“Of course it stems from my book,” the countess told the New York Post in January, “but it’s more about the people I know who are super rich and don’t know who to behave.” In the same interview she pointed out the difference from Kim Zolciak’s “Tardy for the Party” is that “I sing for real.” About as real as she really shops at JCPenny.

The rest of the time she speaks lines such as “Money talks, but i just walk, when i can’t stand it” and some half hearted “ha has.” It grew on me a little the second go around but my standards drop when I’m buzzed. Take a listen after the jump.

    LMAO! If there ever was a delusional woman, she is it! I don’t see class or think class when I see LuAnn on tv. I think fake as a two dollar bill, pretentious, and snob. Asking to retain her “title” as part of her divorce agreement says it all for me. In US, titles are for those who have nothing else to show off with lol. I think a better title for her song would be, Barf Bag Please!

    There is no singing in this song… she just “talks” to a tune. It was absolutely horrible. And, if you ask me, LuAnn de Lesseps is the LAST person who should be singing about class!

    You all are getting so sloppy with the writing. There is a typo in nearly every entry… two in this one. I used to enjoy this blog, but the writing has gone downhill.

    Money can’t buy her talent, either.

    My name is James Murray but I do sets, styling and creative direction
    under the name “Jersey” In response to the unauthorized release of
    the music video for “Money Cant Buy You Class” I am sending you this
    information. If you have any further question, or comments, please feel
    free to contact me anytime regarding this matter. If you would like to see

    How and when was the video supposed to be released?
    Our original plan was to a final edit, and premier the video at the venue
    where the video was shot {Covet Lounge in NYC}

    Do they have any idea who leaked the video?
    It was a very select group that had access to the video, so NO, I have no
    idea how it was leaked

    What was the inspiration for the video?
    I want an overall look that was representative of the “Countess” but also
    was a departure from her character on The Real Housewives of New York
    City. My goal was to present Luann De Lesseps, the singer, not the reality
    star. It seems that my choices, especially hair { } and
    makeup { } were very well received. I also had some
    wonderful designs that were instrumental in the wardrobe. Maggie Norris
    Couture, Blanc de Chine, Ungaro and Malan Breton provided some amazing

    Is this your first music video shoot?
    Although I have done the styling and set design for many videos,
    this was my first music video on which I was the creative director.

    What was it like to work with the Countess?
    Luann is a lovely, sophisticated woman with an incredible grace and sense
    of personal style. From the first moment we met, I knew this project was
    going to be a blast.

    Did she have a hand in the look of the video ?
    Luann has a very hands-on personality. Thankfully we connected and were
    very much “on the same page”

    Are there plans for another Countess De Lesseps video ?
    I guess we will have to wait and see what Luann and Ultra Records have in store.
