The Day The Music Died: After “Tardy for the Party” and “Money Can’t Buy You Class” does the world need another “Housewives” song? According to Jersey “Housewife” Danielle Staub – who is recording a duet with singer Lori Michaels – it sure does… and prepare yourself for five versions of it! “It’s a song about having commitment issues — one person is leaving, the other person is staying,” the reality mom told People, further explaining that there will be multiple remixes of the song. “It’s called ‘Real Close’ because you want to pull the person closer.” So, does Danielle actually have any experience as a singer? “I sang in an R&B band when I was a young teen,” she said. “It’s been a long time since I exercised [my musical chops] but when I was sitting down going over Lori’s music, this song grabbed me.” Our iPod (and ears) are quivering at the thought of this – more than likely – musical train wreck!
Money Can Buy You A Countess!: Speaking of singing “Housewives,” NYC’s Countess (isn’t she no longer a Countess? Or still calling herself that?!) LuAnn de Lesseps apparently does have a price! According to the New York Post’s Page Six, the “Real Housewives of New York City” star was recently auctioned off at Miracle House’s recent benefit in New York. A lunch with the “Housewife” with the most manners went for $5,000 to Hedge-fund wiz Jim Chanos – who reportedly requested that LuAnn wear her old nurse’s uniform to the lunch – way to make a charity event super gross Jim.
