Countess Lu Ann de Lesseps Got a Real Acting Role

Countess Lu Ann de Lesseps, The Real Housewives of New York's tall, titled aspiring pop star, has landed herself a real acting gig. Not much of a stretch, though: De Lesseps will play "an eccentric art patron who poses semi-nude for a painter" on the February 23 episode of Law & Order: SVU. The episode will open with a crime scene involving her character. Poised to become Bravo's first reality star to break into the mainstream industry, this one. There's no stopping her now.
