Luann de Lesseps Shares Her Thoughts On RHONY’s Iconic ‘Vibrator In The Chicken’ Scene!

Luann de Lesseps is spilling the tea about the newest season of The Real Housewives of New York City. The cabaret performer is opening up about what viewers can expect from her in Season 12 of the Bravo hit reality series.

"For me, it's really about a season of redemption," Luann told E!'s Pop of the Morning host Lilliana Vazquez on an Instagram Live Tuesday. "I've been through a lot the last couple of years and I'm finally feeling good and back in the driver's seat. I feel like it was a major reset button, somehow; like this season is a reset button for me."

She added that the season has "a different energy" than other recent ones, due in-part toBethenny Frankel's decision to quit the show.

"I always say, you know, was great and she was a great addition to the cast, obviously. But she was the one who decided to leave. And quite frankly, she takes up a lot of the oxygen in the room," Luann explained. "So I feel like the women have more room to breathe now, and really get to show more of their personalities. Because she just took up a lot of oxygen. I feel like everyone's breathing a little easier."

Luann also feels that people identify with new cast member Leah McSweeney because she's "a tough New Yorker" yet "vulnerable at the same time."

"She walked into a cast which has been around for a while, and I find that she just kind of fit right in," Luann told Lilliana. "Kind of like when Dorinda joined the show. She just kind of fit from the very beginning."

Luann also feels like former cast member Aviva Drescher deserves a second chance. "I thought Aviva was a good housewife!" she added, reminiscing with Lilliana on the now-famous scene in which she took off her prosthetic leg and tossed it across a table.

When asked to share her thoughts about last week's episode of RHONY, which involved a chicken dish and a vibrator.

"Well, what did happen was that Dorinda brought, like, four or five vibrators. She didn't have enough to go around!" Luann explained. "And that scene didn't make it in—we were all talking about vibrators and whatever."

She went on to add that although the evening was fun, she struggled to remain sober. "It was tough going through that party without drinking. It hasn't been easy," Luann explained. "I didn't cave so I was very proud of myself. And I was just amused by watching them. I was like, 'This is better than drinking.'"
