The Music Video For LuAnn DeLesseps’ “Chic, C’est La Vie” Is UNACCEPTABLE

For those of you who are lucky enough not to know this for some reason, LuAnn DeLesseps is a character from The Real Housewives of New York. She used to be called “Countess” LuAnn DeLesseps because she was married to a count, but he divorced her. (She held onto the title and calls herself that, but Videogum is old fashioned and does not recognize divorced landed gentry.) Being on any of the Real Housewives properties includes the contractual obligation to record at least one horrifically awful “pop song” per cast member per show at some point or else they have all their wigs taken away from them. That is just a legal obligation. But the agreement says nothing about insane garbage music videos. Nevertheless, LuAnn felt compelled to make one for her song, “Chic, C’est La Vie” (goood name for a sooong!) and it is completely unacceptable. Like, we are all very glad that New York legalized gay marriage last week, but with that out of the way it’s time for Albany to get some REAL work done, namely passing laws banning The Real Housewives from making music videos because NO.

No way! As a grown up adult, how are you going to make something worse than Ke$ha? This is a good YouTube comment, though, from user “TheBlammah”:

nothing personal against the countess, do your thing, glad you married count chocula and became a countess, but i just wanna let you know this video only got a hit so i could post it on someone’s wall to make fun of it.

Haha. Nothing personal, Countess, you understand. This is BUSINESS! And business is GOOD! You just got BLAMMAH’D! (Via Vulture.)
