“Real Housewives of New York City's” Countess LuAnn de Lesseps’ latest single “Chic C’est La Vie” is getting plenty of attention, but perhaps for all the wrong reasons.
The reality TV star turned, um, singer has followed up her track “Money Can’t Buy You Class” with an ode to the glamorous life.
In a music video featuring her cast mates Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon, the Countess sings (if one could call it that), “Gold, diamonds, caviar, life is but a dream, when every day you’re living in is featured on TV.”
As Anderson Cooper points out, a lack of vocal talent did not stop de Lesseps, although he does add that “as far as bad singing Housewives go, she’s not as bad as Danielle ‘do not flip a table on me’ Staub.”
And in case you missed it, James Franco joined De Lesseps in what was apparently “music video release day” on Wednesday, as the clip for his single with Kalup Linzy “Rising” was unveiled. The song is from the upcoming EP “Turn it Up,” which, as NY Mag's Vulture notes, is coming out in a few weeks from an actual record label.
The song itself features Linzy’s vocals over a slow groove with Franco…in the video for a bit, it seems. The invisible art maker did tell Vulture that he wasn’t claiming the EP as his, adding that all he really does is “do some spoken word on it.”

She is all about trying to tell others how to act but needs a crash course in her own teachings! Very low class and fake. I can see right through you Countless.
Hats off to Ramona, Alex & Sonja for staying as far away from this laughable trainwreck as possible. I agree money can't buy you class, but it sure will get you to do things to make yourself look like an untalented, foolish A$$.
The day people get off their seats and start partying when old ladies walk in a club or casino is the day the pope becomes a Muslim. What a joke! Embarrassing.
Song should go – "Ladies and gentlemen, this is an old bag speaking. Menopause has arrived. I get botox shots in my face, so I can look young. The only thing wet on me today, is my tongue. Hot flashes are the things, I see. I have to wear diapers, uncontrollable poop and pee".
When did adults stop being mature? A true embarrassment to adults. And don't give me, 'we are all young at heart'. She is not Mick Jagger or Stevie Nicks, she's a un-talented nobody who got a break on a reality show. She sounds like a man and all of them together make it look like a geriatric music video. Don't compare yourself to Madonna either. She earned her wings to perform. Seriously, this is one of the most embarrassing things I have seen. Poor kids. I would rip them to shreds if I was their school friend. I hope all of you get audited by the IRS and go bankrupt. Then make a song about the poor and I might give you 1 star.
Snooki's single appropriately named: "Pickles and Guidos" feat. DJ Pauly D. Will be slated for release early july on DumbGuidette Records. Coming Soon!!!
Omg all these reality shows idiots really do think highly about themselves, don't they. All these idiots are going to start thinking they can sing and come out with music. Snooki will be next with her fist pumping single
Who told her that she can sing? I am a singer and I come from a well know family of singers. She sound like a old 95yr old man who has a graspy voice trying to sing. Who ever told her that she can sing they need to be put in front of a firing squad and blind fold and shot. Did u see her coming down the stair case with that ridiculous costume on I screamed..I was praying that she would not open up her mouth. When she did I turned the tv off, that voice made every hair on my head stand up. Some body need to put her singing career to rest....
What a joke. Can't sing, no talent, show sucks. If she's a Countess, so is a sandwich.
Holy balls batman! What the......? She's broke I read. No $ to buy a glass of water much less class..."dahling". Sho' nuff' can't sing....
Does anyone know how to get projectile vomit out of a keyboard? She's not even singing the beyond ridiculous lyrics, she speaks them in her ubber phoney and pretentious voice. It should also be noted that whomever engaged Jill Zarin as the equivalent to a booty shaking video girl needs to have their head examined immediately!!! Worse yet, Public Access channels have better production quality than that piece of crap. What a completely talentless fool!
Just like her other catastrophe, talking to a beat is NOT the same as singing. And drop the stupid airs of "Countess"! Talk about milking your 15 minutes of fame. Awful, just awful.
If they were ever to play this at a bar, lounge or club it would have to be burned down to a crisp. Com
hahaha...that's embarrassing. She is good looking woman but that's just baaaaaad.
There are 100's of truly talented people, playing in bars on 6th street, ATx. for tips, who would love to have an opportunity like this spoiled, horrible singing mess. The only thing I agree with is that "$ Can't Buy You Class"! Life is so unfair& this is a travesty! If it wasn't so damned Funny, that is! Silver lining in every cloud! LLOOLL!!
Jill Zarin is so foul and wrong. She isnt the least bit attractive and frankly her entire family is ugly. This video is preposterous.
Uuhhhh if you call that singing??????
This is rich white lady rap music. Someone tell this dumb broad to spend her money on a better cause, like children's cancer research.
I liked the video and the song has a good meaning if you read the lyrics. I don't know why everyone is being nasty about her. She is bascially rapping, not singing, and so I've found is just as good as any other rapper. It's just a different style. And yes, OLD people (in their 40s, LOL) do party. They just don't throw up and spend the entire next day recovering. LOL
Well this isn't music. She really needs to stop embarassing herself...and her friends lol
Watched it for a laugh and that is just what I got!1 LMAO!
The C*untess is full of herself. I say, "Go crawl back to the cabin, er, I mean, rock, that you came from."
IT'S SO BAD IT'S AWESOME
Anderson was right on. You go silver fox !
Here's some news CNN, report that Franco IS NOT gay, that would be shocking. News that some wh0re can't sing, isn't.
YAll are just racist and haters.
I don' think there is anything wrong with the song. The musics is good. The sad this that Anderson Cooper is reporitng on it. Gesh. Come on CNN. The song is not made for you or your target audience.
What in the sh¡t!?!
L.M.A.O. wow are you serious, there good for entertainment but not of the singing kind..
Those women are DREADFUL....
LuAnn no talent what so ever, and Jill well she has to have her mug in everything somehow, as for Kelly eat a gummy bear....
Both the Countess and Franco need to go back to what they're good at – smoking pole.
Never seen the show but she looks sassy! Bet she'd be good at pole smoking.
Worst singing I've heard-I quess if your on TV you somehow think you also have other talents-NOT
She needs to be knawing on a couple of my chocolate hotdogs.
The countess needs a rumpfull of hot cream corn. Otherwise she is a turd burglar.
That is racism. You arent allowed to say something negative about us African Americans!
YO!! HEY YO!! we gotz a clazp u ole peece uh wite bret.
I'm not sure what you said but I"m fairly certain it involved a peach with a clasp.
In a HOT second!
