Countess LuAnn de Lesseps Debuts New Single, Blonde 'Do in NYC (PHOTOS)
Real Housewives star Countess LuAnn de Lesseps has gone from reality cast member to pop star! If the Countess had your booty shaking with her infectious hit, "Money Can't Buy You Class," prepare yourself for her newest song, "Chic C'est La Vie."
Celebuzz attended the Countess' single release party (hosted by Life & Style) at the glamorous Bar Basque in New York City on Tuesday, June 28. Joined by her Real Housewives co-stars Kelly Bensimon, Jill Zarin and Cindy Barshop, the now-blonde Countess fluttered around the room, greeting friends and happily posing for photos with excited fans.
So, what's up with her new blonde 'do? The Countess told a Life & Style reporter that she "always wanted to be a blonde" and she finally made the change thanks to Jason Backe at Ted Gibson's famed NYC salon.
LuAnn showed off her impossibly long legs in a very short purple mini-dress and unique black shoes that flashed white, green and blue lights with every step that she took.
The Countess was joined by daughter Victoria de Lesseps who got the dance party going once Rihanna's "S&M" began playing.
"Look, it's my mom," Victoria exclaimed to a group of young friends as they watched the Countess' new music video for "Chic C'est La Vie" play on a massive screen facing the bar. The beautiful teen was clearly happy about seeing her mom on such a big screen.

Victoria wasn't the only gal who was in a dancing mood – Kelly made a beeline for the DJ booth to dance next to DJ Martial, who was spinning pop hits all night. Kelly looked a little nervous when a duo of shirtless male dancers busted out sparklers but she didn't let a little sparkle get in her way of having a good time.
Although the blonde LuAnn was busy greeting guests and posing for photos, she did find a little time to hang out with her boyfriend, Jacques Azoulay, who supplied the wine for the night. Jacques was all smiles as he doted on LuAnn and graciously posed for photos with everyone who approached him. LuAnn has found herself a real class act!
Meanwhile, Jill Zarin sat at a booth with husband Bobby Zarin and co-star Cindy. Hm, maybe they were talking over those rumors that Cindy and Alex McCord are thinking about leaving Real Housewives next season? Cindy, the newest cast member, looked happy to be out with her co-stars and was all smiles with fans.
