Luann looked every bit the stage siren in costume for her Countess Cabaret  stunning in a black body suit with a plunging neckline under a matching tuxedo coat with long tails.

She added a little glitz to the ensemble with a rhinestone body chain and accessorized with the only items fit for a cabaret show: a fedora and cane.

The Real Housewives of New York star struck several poses on the red carpet with leading ladies from other franchises.

RHONJ star Teresa Giudice sported a pair of tight black pants, silky camisole and a sparkling silver jacket. She and fiancé Luis Ruelas couldn’t seem to keep their hands off one another and packed on the PDA for the cameras.

Atlanta star Phaedra Parks rocked a monochromatic grey ensemble that played with textural elements with snakeskin boots and a fur collar. 

Jill and Phaedra recently joined Luann at Dorinda Medley’s Blue Stone Manor to film season two of Real Housewives Ultimate Girls trip along with Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Judge, Taylor Armstrong, Eva Marcille and Brandi Glanville

Luann gushed about her new tour to DailyMail.com last week, revealing that she had been working day and night to finalize the set. 

‘It’s a great, great new show,’ Luann she said, describing it as ‘a beautiful mixture of the songs I love personally’ which get their own special Countess twist.

For this tour Lu even has some new originals inspired by her recent time filming season two of Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip. 

Luann says she is working very hard in rehearsals to put the final touches on the Cabaret with the iconic Richard Jay-Alexander – who she has dubbed the ‘diva whisperer. Richard is directing the spring tour and has worked with the likes of Barbra Streisand, Kristin Chenoweth and Bette Midler.

Rather than inviting special guests on stage as has been done in the past, these next few performances will be all Countess, all the time. 

‘I’m doing it on my own because I would notice people would start looking away,’ she laughed. ‘I work really hard on my shows.’ 

‘It’s a fun, fun show,’ she teased of the show which is part fashion show and part cabaret with an audience Q&A. ‘Get ready for the ride!’ 

The Cabaret tour will spend several days in New York City and then head to Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Seattle, San Francisco and end with a string of performances in June in Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, fans are gearing up for big changes in the Big Apple with RHONY being split into two different series:  a spin-off featuring past beloved stars and a completely recast version of the original show.   

‘I’d love to see Dorinda come back, I’d love to see Kelly Bensimon, I’d love to see Jill Zarin – even Aviva Drescher,’ Luann revealed to DailyMail.com, adding with a laugh: ‘I think she got a bad shake from the last shake.’

‘You know that we’re at a crossroads for RHONY,’ Andy Cohen previously told the Variety. ‘We’ve spent a lot of time figuring out where to go. And the plan that we’ve come up with, I think, is a real gift to the fans.’ 

As for Luann herself, she revealed that she has not yet been officially asked to join the OGs cast and was surprised when Cohen made the announcement that Bravo was making over the show. 

‘I was not mad at it,’ she said. ‘I was surprised, obviously … not expecting that left hook.’

‘I still don’t have a contract – no official ask,’ Luann explained. ‘But, to do the OG show would be great fun.’
