Is LuAnn de Lesseps Returning to Real Housewives of New York?

We totally panicked when we saw the news that two housewives are in Season 6 limbo — Aviva Drescher and LuAnn de Lesseps. Real Housewives of New York just wouldn’t be the same without full court present!

Fortunately, Huffpost TV was able to ask Luann about her mysterious omission from Bravo’s confirmed cast members at the Gersh Upfront party last night.

"Well, my name is always on the list, darling," said the Countess. "But they have to make me happy."

Since contract negotiation has been a major dispute for Season 6, we’re guessing that means that Bravo needs to make some corrections.

“I hope to be back so hang in there and keep rooting for me,” LuAnn said to fans.

"I've been there from the beginning. I've been the driving force behind 'Housewives of New York' with my castmates," she said, adding, “I hope it works out. I really do.”

So far, Ramona Singer, Carole Radziwill, Sonja Morgan, and Heather Thomson have apparently reached deals with Bravo that work for them, and are confirmed as returning cast members for Season 6.

Do you want LuAnn back on RHoNY, or is it better if she moves on with her career?
