Luann de Lesseps was born on May 17, 1965 in Berlin, Connecticut. She is the daughter of a construction entrepreneur, who has Algonquin and French descent, and a French Canadian mother. Luann has six siblings.
After graduating high school, where she captained the varsity softball team, Luann became a licensed practical nurse in Connecticut. In her spare time, she was also a Wilhelmina model.
In 1993, Luann married Count Alexandre de Lesseps, an entrepreneur and investment banker. The couple had two children, Victoria and Noel. Sixteen years later, Luann and Alexandre filed for divorce after it was discovered he had an alleged affair with Kemeria Abajobir Abajifar, an Ethiopian princess. Luann is currently dating wealthy businessman Thomas Agostino (2016).
She rose to fame after starring in the hit reality television series, “The Real Housewives of New York City.” The show documents the affluent lives of several women who reside in New York City. In 2008, she became a major part of the show, next to Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan. However, during the show’s sixth season, Luann was dropped to just a recurring role. But once the seventh season started, she returned to a main role.
Luann and the rest of the cast have already started to film the eighth season of RHONY.
Because of her success after just one season on the show, Luann authored a book entitled “Class with the Countess: How to Live with Elegance and Flair.” In the following year, Luanna released her first record “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” A year later, Luanna released her second single “Chic, C’est La Vie.” In 2015, she released a dance single called “Girl Code.”
The reality TV star has also been seen in various media outlets. Luann currently hosts her own show “The Countess Report” on WVVH Hamptons TV. Over the years, she has also made an appearance on “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” “Law and Order: SVU” and “The Tyra Banks Show.”
Luann has recently delved into the world of fashion by releasing her own line of clothing called Countess Collection (for EvineLive).
