Less than a month after The Real Housewives of New York City star Countess Luann de Lesseps was arrested in Florida for a drunken altercation with police, her RHONY co-stars posed for their own mug shot photos as part of a visit to New York City’s Conbody gym.
Sonja Morgan shared the Polaroids above on Facebook and Instagram earlier today and captioned them with “Real Housewives outlaws.” It appears as though the ladies visited Conbody, which is a gym with a prison theme founded and staffed by ex-convicts, on Friday. There for the prison workout were Sonja Morgan, Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, Carole Radziwill, and Tinsley Mortimer.
Some of the ladies shared post-workoout group photos in which they can be seen holding their mug shot photos:
While tracking down the pictures above, I saw that Carole Radziwill posed for her own #DidTheTime Conbody post-workout mug shot photo earlier last week, so I am guessing she might have been the one to talk the others into attending:
As you would imagine, the comments sections on most all of the photos posted by the RHONY stars were jam packed with references to Countess Luann. Here are some samples:
Wow poking fun at The Countess, I thought girls where supposed to stick together!!! ?
Is this showing solidarity with Luann or????
Oh man how does Luann feel about this?
Where is Luann? Were you visiting her? ?
Omg!! The shade!!
this is not funny bc luanne is actually going to jail
it’s even f**king funnier for that very reason! ???
Um…I mean can we address the ?? Wouldn’t she be perfect for this? Or maybe she’ll get the real thing. If any non celebrity did what she did – we’d definitely would not have had the same outcome.
where’s the most recent con Luanne ? Love you ladies
Is this shading Lu?!?!
?Looks like LuAnn didn’t want to participate in this one… ? ????
Visiting the #Countess??
where is Luann’s picture ?the shade of it all
What are you doing there without Luann?! ?
THIS IS INSENSITIVE. PRAY FOR LUANN
Luann already nailed her mugshot so she couldn’t attend
Lol is this to make Luanne feel better? Now you all have one?
Y’all are making fun of Luann!??
Is this supposed to be solidarity to Luann? If its not then you guys are a really shady bunch??
So what do you think? Was it insensitive for the ladies to pose for fake mug shot photos so soon after Countess Luann’s very concerning arrest and resulting stint in rehab? Oh, and who do you think took the best booking pic?
While you ponder those questions, I thought I’d share a little more info about Conbody — which is a fascinating concept! I will post their story from their website followed by a video profile, but you can read more in this 2016 New York Times profile piece.
The story behind the workout is almost as good as the workout itself: While serving a prison sentence in his 9’x6’ cell, Coss Marte developed a unique and effective exercise program without the need for any equipment. Using military bootcamp techniques, and some additional secrets that Coss developed himself, this program is designed to be completed anywhere, anytime.
Committing himself to this program, Coss was able to lose 70 lbs. in just six months. Now he brings this exercise program to his studios in NYC and online through ConBody Live.
