While Sonja does think LuAnn has a legitimate claim to her Countess title, she’s glad to see the divorcee use the moniker less lately.
In her latestBravo blog, Sonja wrote “kudos” to LuAnn for giving the royalty card a rest.
“Lu lived with a man who lived the life of a count and was seated socially around the world at dinners using that title at placement dinner parties and was introduced with that title. Lu has children who will also carry that title, so it's very real for her,” said Sonja.
However, Sonja observes that by not using the title, “It just says she's becoming more secure as a single woman since her divorce. A lot of people said they enjoyed seeing the other side of her as a true friend when I took down the painting of my ex-husband. I'm happy we could do that together.”
