One real housewife of New York City now calls the Hamptons home.
Countess LuAnn de Lesseps revealed in Thursday’s night episode of “The Real Housewives of New York City” that her Bridgehampton estate is now home base.
And as one of the stars of the New Jersey “Housewives” once famously said on that Bravo realty TV show, “Happy wife, happy life.”
In another episode of the new season, the then-divorcing de Lesseps had taken in co-star Jill Zarin for the Labor Day weekend.
“I feel happy here,” Zarin told her, commenting that the mood had changed for the better since Count Alexandre de Lesseps left the picture.
“It’s a happy house, isn’t it?” de Lesseps responded.
Although not always too happy — on the same show, de Lessep’s teenage daughter, Victoria, is seen with both arms in casts. She apparently fell off the roof while, de Lesseps said, possibly trying to sneak out of the house.
De Lesseps recently got the shingled 6,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom, 7½-bath home in her divorce. She lived at the house full-time until a few years ago, when she bought the Manhattan townhouse shown prominently in earlier seasons.
She tried to sell the house in 2006 and 2007, when it was on the market with Sotheby’s International Realty for $9.5 million. Built in 1997, the house is on 2.2 acres with a pool and a tennis court.
