Countess Luann de Lessups humbly & eloquently accepted the French Actors Klan in Entertainment( or FAKE) inaugural Person of Courage Award. This award, to be nicknamed the Lessupy, will be presented annually to a person in the reality TV entertainment community who personifies class & dignity in the face of adversity.

looking as Chic as Ms. Jenner
Like Ms. Jenner, The Countess has had to deal with gender issues of her own publicly for years. The Countess has endured joking and bullying by her fellow +Bravo Real Housewives of New York since joining the show both on air and in the press. Countless times she has been callously referred to as "Lu Mann". She has been snickered about for her husky, deep voice and her taller, bigger-boned frame. One recent episode, Ms. Frankel described her as "larger than life"- built; and, as The Countess' legs were infringing on a fashion runway, Frankel proclaimed, "Wow! That's one big b**ch!"
When cast mates snidely and repeatedly compare The Countess to a drag queen, she finds it's best to brush them off saying, "If I didn't love drag queens so much, I'd be offended!" Maybe the other women need to steal a page from her Girl Code!
|Fabulous & feminine in every single way,|
The Countess loves a good cabaret!
