CLEARWATER — Countess Luann de Lesseps, star of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” will visit Pinellas Friday, May 31, 8 p.m., at Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater.
Tickets start at $59.50. Call 727-791-7400 or visit www.atthecap.com.
Lesseps’ show is filled with hilarious stories, one-of-a-kind anecdotes and songs in her inimitable style.
An original cast member on one of the most successful franchises in television history, Lesseps was recently ranked the No. 1 Housewife by TV Guide, topping all 46 housewives across all franchised cities. Her global dance hits “Money Can’t Buy You Class,” “Chic C’est La Vie” and “Girl Code” lift audiences to their feet during her live performances.
The model-turned-Countess has transformed herself into an author, philanthropist, actor and bona fide cabaret star. This past year, Lesseps started packing venues with her show, #COUNTESSANDFRIENDS, to rave reviews from venerable publications such as Vanity Fair and The New York Times.
Alongside Grammy nominated musical director Billy Stritch, Lesseps has performed on an all-star bill at New York City’s Town Hall with icons Liza Minnelli and Chita Rivera, to name a few. She also performed with the legendary Natalie Cole.
When not on “The Real Housewives of New York,” Lesseps can be seen on programs such as “Today,” “The View,” “The Talk,” “Dr. Oz,” and “Wendy Williams.” She also has appeared in scripted series such as Hulu’s “Difficult People” and “Law & Order: SVU” alongside Mariska Hargitay.
Lesseps also believes in giving back and has worked with many charities, including God’s Love We Deliver, The American Cancer Society, GLAAD and ACE Partnership for the Homeless.
Along with her children Victoria and Noel and their dog Aston, Lesseps splits her time between her homes in New York City, Upstate New York and the Hamptons, the latter of which was featured in Architectural Digest.
