It’s been all of about forty-eight hours since we last saw a Real Housewife attempt to scale the Billboard charts with a pop performance, and we already have a rival. Enter Countess LuAnn, who has finally released a follow-up video to her much-lauded debut single, “Money Can’t Buy You Class.”
The song in question is “Chic C’est La Vie,” which like its predecessor is also a spoken word, soon-to-be gay club classic featuring The Countess delivering haughty proclamations in her gravelly voice. This time around, she takes great joy in pronounce “elegance” as “eleGAAAAANCE,” and to spice things up, she recruits fellow Real Housewives of New York City stars Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon to join her on screen. It’s not as much of a mess as you’d think, and the musical arrangement isn’t awful… I just wish a true vocalist were on hand to elevate “Chic C’est La Vie” to the level of, I don’t know, a real song. Enjoy.
