EXCLUSIVE: Countess Luann NOT Feuding With Jill Or Bravo
Ever since Real Housewives of New York City star Countess Luann de Lessepsgot married, rumors have been rampantly flying that Bravo was angry with her because they could not film the event due to her People exclusive (read about that here). A new rumor also sprouted up this morning that she was upset with Jill Zarinfor posting photos, which compromised People wanting to pay her (read about that here). We reached out to Luann’s publicist, Pete Sanders, to get the real story on what’s gone down. Read on for details.
Countess Luann Wedding Not Feuding With Jill Or Bravo Exclusive
“Bravo was not angry with Luann regarding the wedding,” Sanders explained. “Luann never wanted the wedding to be filmed. She wanted it to be for family and friends and a private affair. Luann always wanted it to be a private event.”
“Also,” Sanders revealed, “even if Bravo had filmed, it wouldn’t have been an issue in regards to the People exclusive, as the show would air after the exclusive was published.”
In regards to the rumors about Zarin, Sanders explained that, “Pictures went out not only from Jill, but from everyone. Cynthia Bailey posted. Marysol Patton posted. People’s exclusive had nothing to do with Instagram pictures.”
“The only thing Luann did not allow were cell phones in the actual ceremony,” he continued. “This had nothing to do with People. People ran the first official picture after the wedding. They ran that right after the wedding because the knew Instagram postings would go out right after the wedding. The issue was getting an official photo out the night of the wedding and the videos and photos that will appear in the magazine this week.”
Sanders also noted that “Jill looked fabulous at the wedding as did everyone. She also had a wonderful time as did the rest of the guests.”
We appreciate Sanders talking to us and clearing up both of these rumors.
