In the endless stream of "music" (a term used very loosely here) released by Real Housewives, it's LuAnn de Lesseps of The Real Housewives of New York back in the spotlight with the most recent contribution. A new video for her song "Chic, C'est La Vie" has been released featuring Kelly Bensimon and Jill Zarin. While it's ridiculous and annoying, it's actually not that bad ... at least as far as Housewives tunes go.
In fact, I would say in the scheme of those that make me want to electrically drill screws into my ears to stop the noise, this one would fall at the bottom of the heap. Maybe it's the French, or perhaps because it's just such an in-your-face ha ha to the peasants of the world (so her), but I find it somewhat amusing.
The Countess sings: "Gold, diamonds, caviar. Life is but a dream when every day you're living in is featured on TV." Kelly and Jill playing (badly) along in Atlantic City just adds to the whole thing.
The personal shout-outs to the other housewives are a nice touch:
Attention Jill, bring your jewelry. Cindy, bring those crystals. Ramona, bring that Pinot. Sonja, her man. Kelly, the jelly beans. Alex, bring Simon, and I'll bring the diamonds.
I wouldn't go so far as to say LuAnn is a GOOD singer, but it's not that painful compared to the likes of someone like Kim Zolciak (Real Housewives of Atlanta) coughing out "Tardy for the Party" or Michaele Salahi (Real Housewives of D.C.) screeching her latest, "Bump It," which is too awful for words. Click at your own risk.
If you still think LuAnn is that bad, just check out this one from househusband Simon Van Kempen.
You have to admit that LuAnn sounds and looks incredible compared to that. The best part of LuAnn's whole song, however, is this line that I'm not sure how she sang with a straight face: "Live with dignity ..." If she's going for irony, she nailed it, though I highly doubt she was. Oh well, c'est la vie.
