Countess LuAnn de Lesseps Heading to Broadway?

The Real Housewives of New York's Countess LuAnn de Lesseps took the music world by storm last March when she dropped her first single, "Money Can't Buy You Class," so the logical next step is a Broadway role. "The Countess' move to Broadway has long been rumored, but the housewife has officially taken meetings with casting directors for 'Chicago' and 'La Cage Aux Folles' in the hopes of setting up a stage run," the Daily News reports. De Lesseps is currently filming the new Housewives season, but hopes to take the stage if time permits. "The Broadway venture is about reinvention for the reality star," her rep explains. Though why not just turn the three Shakespearian seasons of Real Housewives into a Broadway show? Now that we'd like to see. [NYDN]
