'Real Housewives of NYC': Listen to Countess LuAnn's 'classy' new single

Class-with-the-countessFollowing in the talentless, Manolo’d footsteps of Real Housewives of Atlanta trainwreck Kim Zolciak, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps now has her own horrible new single, “Money Can’t Buy You Class”.  Needless to say, it’s no “Tardy for the Party.” But then again, what is?

For those who’ve been following the Countess’ exploits on the new season of The Real Housewives of NYC, you already know that this has been a year of big changes and second acts for the Gotham royal. She’s split from her titled husband, returned to the dating market, forged an alliance against Bethenny with mean girl Jill, and generally stuck her nose everywhere it doesn’t belong. Apparently, that also includes a recording studio.

For a woman who looks down her nose at the undignified peons, LuAnn’s dance music gambit is pretty much a case of the pot calling the kettle black. After all, it’s hard to be classy shaking your rump with a pair of headphones on while having your voice mangled by Autotune and singing the chorus: “Elegance is learned…my friends! Elegance is learned…oh yeah!Maybe this is the kind of disco fromage the Countess used to dance to after a day on the slopes in Gstaad back in her modeling days, but her husky man-voice and stiff delivery sounds so god-awful in 2010 that my monocle almost fell out.

Here’s a taste of some of the more choice lyrics:

“How many men there are that forget to hold the door/when I give them so much more than they can imagine/money-rich and manners-poor never got the boys too far/money talks but I just walk when I can’t stand it…”

“The lesson all should learn even if there’s cash to burn: respect yourself because no one else can change your path…”

“Now ladies don’t forget to allow the man you’ve met to exemplify the very best behavior/when entering a room, greet everyone and soon you’ll be invited and entitled to the grandeur…”

“Life is all about elegance and flair and savoir faire/you don’t have to be rich or famous to be unforgettable…ha hahhhh!

Tacky, tacky, Luann.

    What makes the song good is that it’s completely over the top and ridiculous. I don’t know if she meant it to be so campy, but it works…just like Tardy for the Party. The beat is good too.

    • julie

      what makes this song good is nothing. it sucks and most definitely does not work.

      • spamela

        LOL @ the categories description at the top of the page.

      • beth a knee

        If Jill was really LuAnn’s friend she would have talked her out of this debacle.

    • nelly

      this song is no tardy for the party

  • B

    Really? This is horrible!! Is the auto tone really necessary?

    • K8

      they showed her recording it, and the auto tune was beyond necessary

    • TK

      If you watched her sing that song on the show YOU would know YES the much needed auto-tune was needed. She sings horrible!

        You made my day. I know, sad. But I got a good laugh.

  • B

    AG – completely wrong not good at all! The beat is good? You must be a bit deaf

  • Lola

    I really need to get it together and start my own music career. If this woman can get attention from her auto tuned crapfest, I have a shot.

  • andrea whatup

    this song makes me love my life, and my ability to judge others. and my ability to point fingers and laugh and luann.

  • Bonnie

    Oh my GAWD!!! No! No! NO!

  • Dawn

    This song is so bad I am in physical pain- from laughing so hard. At least it’s entertaining.

    • Laurie

      As was this post! “sounds so god-awful in 2010 that my monocle almost fell out!”

  • psychoanalyzer

    oh my classically trained ears what is this garbage?

  • Vicky

    I’ve just about had my fill of this show, this may put me over the edge.

  • Eshia

    Can you really call it a “song”? The chorus is full of autotune, and the actual “verses” are just her TALKING about uppity nonsense. This is just embarrassing. (I’m really pissed because I can’t get the dumb chorus out of my head! LOL)

  • Madd

    Is there the lyric “losing weight is easy” in there?

  • Jones

    Just when I thought LuAnn couldn’t get more annoying this season…

  • Pat Johnson

    Like someone at a wedding who had too much to imbibe and who decides that this is the right time to drag out the kaoroke material playing in her head.

    So bad that it is almost comical but I bet she considers it a “hit”. Class will out each and every time.

  • petuniafromhell

    I could only do 32 seconds of this crapfest!!!
