Although Countess LuAnn de Lesseps has been trying to get pregnant all season of Real Housewives of New York, someone very close to her is claiming that it simply isn’t a possibility for her. Is The Countess trying to pull the wool over our eyes and create a bogus story-line for herself that will keep her fans interested?
That seems to be the case. In a shocking turn of events, The Countess’ mother has told the Huffington Post, “Luann’s tubes were tied after her last kid.” The Countess is the mother of two teenagers, Victoria and Noel, from her marriage to The Count.
Now that she’s in a relationship with Jacques Azoulay, who is ten years her junior, The Countess has expressed her desire to have a third child. This season, she even visited a fertility clinic. But all of that seems to be completely pointless — the best acupuncturist in the world couldn’t untie her tubes. (FYI, the term “tube tying” isn’t quite accurate. The procedure, called tubal ligation, involves cutting, and usually cauterizing the tubes. In order to reverse the procedure, the surgeon would have to local the ends and put them back together, which can have mixed results.)
Is this one of the biggest reality TV scams of all time, or is this just part of a bitter family feud? The Countess claims the later. “If she said that, it’s my mother’s way of joking,” Luann said. “She had seven children, and at this point, she would rather travel with me than babysit, but it’s absolutely not true.”
During her mother’s interview with Huffington Post, the interviewers, who obviously knew of the current RHONY story-line, asked The Countess’ mother several times is she was sure about her tubes being tied, and she clarified that they were.
Is the inability to conceive children really something a mother would joke about? All we know is as of now, The Countess is NOT pregnant. We’ll have to wait and see what happens with this story-line.
