Chic C’est La What The Hell Is The Countess Doing????

The promos showed Grammy-winner Natalie Cole being introduced to Countess LuAnn and then there’s the inevitable shot of them singing.  Oh God!  Someone (ANDY COHEN) really needs to stop the singing Housewives train.  No, this won’t be the Countess’ next single, it was just a lark, well a “1 year anniversary of dating” gift for her man Jacques, which I couldn’t tell if he was stunned or if he was horrified.  Simon’s face said it all, as you’ll see in the clip.  Now if you are wondering why Natalie Cole looked so different, she’s had several health issues in the past few years and I’m not sure she’s been seen in public very much.  But the woman can still sing!  The Countess (SPOILER ALERT!) cannot. 

No, That’s NOT Sean Young!

I only made the Sean Young connection when I saw the screen shot…no, it’s drag queen Countess LuAnn de Lesseps’ new video for her new single, “Chic C’est La Vie”.  I’m an avid Housewives franchise fan and it was only two years ago, I became enamored with the NYC ladies.  I’m bummed Bethenny Frankel is gone, but those left behind (original and new) are keeping it as interesting and as nutso as ever!  I guess we can blame Atlanta housewife Kim Zolciak for starting the whole “singing housewife” trend.  Lest we forget “Tardy for the Party” and I guess the Countess was the next one to take on a “singing” career, oh boy, and a fury on the eardrums of the world was unleashed.  And since the Countess, former NJ cast member/housewife, Danielle Staub tried it, as did DC housewife/trainwreck/White House crasher Micheale Salahi….watch this recently released trainwreck if you dare!
I seriously thought it was a bad SNL skit; oh God the lengths some people will go to.  Anyways, I guess my point is, if you try to sing, at least get some vocal training or auto-tune.  Even NYC househusband, Simon Van kempen has gotten in on the action with his own soon-to-be-forgotten single, “I Am Real”  Yes, the housewives are not singing, they are auto-tuning.  I just laugh and I hope I keep laughing at these ladies, si bon, si bon!
And, for good measure, here’s Sean Young during her “please give me the role of Catwoman” phase.

WHO Follows You on Twitter????

Twitter is pretty cool…(follow me @eringrant)…however, I got alerted of an unusual follower today…if you have ever seen THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NYC, you know Jill Zarin very well…I don’t know everything about her, only that she runs some sort of interior design business????….and, she’s a decent tennis player…

Jill Zarin is now following ME on Twitter?!?…I only say this because most all of my followers are pretty run of the mill folks or services…I can’t think of one thing I could possibly have in common with Zarin…I love to watch the HOUSEWIVES shows, but not necessarily the NYC set…maybe it’s because of my interest in PROJECT RUNWAY or THE FASHION SHOW…I am just baffled…it’s probably some random follow thing….anyhoo, I’m glad to have her aboard…

Tueshday is a lazy day…Jill is on the right in the picture above…
