One of LuAnn De Lesseps’ former costars on “The Real Housewives of New York” doesn’t think she had an affair on her trip to St. Barths. Alex McCord, who has been doing video logs of the show each week, thinks that LuAnn has deeper motives when hinting of an affair. According to a new “Wetpaint Entertainment” report released on Aug. 29, Alex believes that LuAnn made the party night more dramatic than it was for airtime and creating a dramatic story line.
“After 5 years on a reality show she knows good and well how to have a private conversation if she needs to,” Alex explains of LuAnn’s actions after watching her on Monday’s episode. “She could text her friend Cat. She could email her.” In addition, former “The Real Housewives of New York” star Alex McCord believes that LuAnn made the phone call on purpose. “Her French was so slow on the phone,” Alex analyzed. “I think that’s so everyone would be easy on the subtitling. She wanted to be overheard. I think Luann is fishing for storyline here.”
Since LuAnn has been filming the show for years, she knows how to handle things with secrecy. She managed to keep her divorce out of the spotlight when Alex cheated on her, so if she wanted to keep her own supposed affair out of the spotlight, she could easily have done so. It sounds like she made it seem like she had an affair to spice up her story line, and she probably warned Jacques about her little stunt before doing so, just in case it backfired on her.
Do you think Alex has a point about faking an affair to create an interesting story line?
