Bravo's Real Housewives franchise has spawned book deals, clothing lines and now, a second dance song -- following Kim Zolciak of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, who released a single in September urging fans not to be "Tardy for the Party" (we did not RSVP). Now, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps of The Real Housewives of New York City is claiming "Money Can't Buy You Class." Have a listen.
These reality stars may be good at drumming up drama on TV, but making good music? The Countess' single is more of a charm-school lesson ("Your company should feel/When the conversation's real/Even if the topic feels like science class") and sounds as if it was perhaps recorded in one take with the iPhone T-Pain app.
Countess LuAnn, 44, recently told People the song is "Not your average dance track," describing it as "a very Holly Golightly, runway, glamour-puss kind of song." All the Countess says she really wanted was her "own song about how it doesn’t matter where you’re from, anybody can be classy."
Was she inspired by the hilarious "hit" released last fall by RH Atlanta's Kim? We remember it like it was yesterday...
While "Tardy for the Party" has become something of a guilty pleasure, can "Money Can't Buy You Class" trump it? Let's just hope more Housewives keep this so-bad-it's-bad "phenomenon" as entertaining as these two songs have been!
