She's so cool, not like, uncool! LuAnn de Lesseps graciously welcomed Us Weekly into her posh NYC abode in the Upper West Side to talk everything Real Housewives of New York City — and the drama that comes with it!
"We have a great season coming up, it's very exciting. Bethenny [Frankel] is back and there's a lot of drama," de Lesseps, 49, exclusively told Us reporter Travis Cronin. (Us broke news that Frankel was returning for season 7 after a three-year hiatus.)
"She doesn't make me nervous anymore. She doesn't scare me," she said, laughing. "I think she was more nervous coming onto the show then I would be because she was out of the game for a while. But she fits right in — it's like riding a bike!"
Frankel's sassy zingers are just one of many highlights this season though. (Yep, you guessed it!) Ramona Singer's antics will continue at every turn. "You are on the Ramona-coaster," de Lesseps said. "You never know what you are going to get."
Indeed, especially when leaving The Big Apple! This season, the ladies are off to Turks and Caicos for some topless swimming(!), and lots of dancing and boozing — better known as "turtle time."
"We work together. It's like a family," de Lesseps told Us. "You argue and then you make up because you kind of have to live together."
