Believe it or not, more than one star from Bravo’s “Real Housewives” franchise has attempted a musical career — a statistic that should either terrify or delight you. The raspy-voiced Countess Luann De Lesseps of “The Real Housewives Of NYC” released her single “Money Can’t Buy You Class” in 2010, a song the AV Club gruffly described as “creepy, cheesy, completely computer-generated dream.” According to Luann, she wanted to translate her etiquette book, Class with the Countess, into music.”I’m saying money can’t buy class, but elegance can be learned,” the Countess said of her dance number.
Unfortunately, Luann’s Bop wasn’t the most commercially successful tune in the Housewives series. This track is related to “Tardy for the Party” by Kim Zolciak-Biermann of The Real Housewives of Atlanta The Hollywood Reporter. Co-written and produced by his housewife, Kandi Burruss, the track has more than 100,000 legal downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan. With lyrics like “Hurry up baby, don’t be late / I’ll meet you right there / I’ve been waiting for this day / This weekend let’s party,” “Tardy for the Party” embodies the music’s nondescript novelty, per Genius by Housewives.
Now, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville is next on the mic.
Glanville gets tough on other housewives in new song
Goodbye Brandi Glanville. Hello, “B Geezy.” On July 7th, the ‘Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip’ star released her new diss track ‘Life of a Housewife’ under what appears to be an MC name. B-Geezy certainly didn’t hold back with the powerful disses. “F*** them other housewives / Better watch their backs / Because I’m spitting out the maternal facts,” says one text, per E! News. Brandi raps less than she speaks, and references numerous housewives in the song, from Kyle Richards (“Don’t Steal Cars, Steal Houses”) to Luann de Lesseps (“Mug Shots, Kickin’ Cops”). B-Geezy’s hit list is so extensive that it even pokes fun at The Real Housewives of Potomac stars Wendy Osefo and Karen Huger for their candlewick debate in Season 6. “Making headlines with their scandals / Fighting over damn candles / One wick, two wick, three wick, four / What new woman are they going to call the whore?” she spits scathingly over a mid-tempo beat.
Brandi’s Twitter followers ate the track, with some demanding “a music video now” and others declaring it “song of the summer.” Others were left stunned. “What the heck is that Brandi Glanville song?!?” asked a Twitter user. “I lasted 38 seconds,” wrote another.
In truth, Brandi’s new joint is arguably no more (or less) ridiculous than other housewives’ musical endeavors – so take it for what it is and enjoy it of your own accord!
