Who knew that TV’s classiest Countess could make a convincing Long Island loudmouth? We sat down with Countess LuAnn de Lesseps from The Real Housewives of New York City to find out why she wanted to be on Celebrities Undercover, how she got into her alter-ego character, how she deals with the haters, and more!
What appealed to you about going on Celebrities Undercover?
I love hidden camera shows. I love the element of surprise, and personally I loved doing the improvised bit and playing this character. I actually invented her when I got there. She’s basically a combination of a couple of people from my past. It was really fun staying in character the whole time and making people believe that I was someone else! I grew up in a big family and we did a lot of April Fools-type tricks on each other growing up, so this was fun for me and it reminded me of that. When I came back from the show I took an improv class because of it!
