LuAnn de Lesseps Offers Unconventional Advice to Korean Woman

This story is from late September, but I could not resist posting it. According to New York magazine, LuAnn de Lesseps from Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York,” offered some pearls of wisdom to a Korean woman using her blackberry at the St. Regis Hotel’s bar. Let’s just say that de Lesseps was not practicing good etiquette, despite the fact that she hosts a Hamptons-based show exclusively about that topic.  She reportedly told the Korean woman this:

“I believe in empowering women, because I myself am a woman, so let me give you this advice. When men see females on their BlackBerrys working hard, it really turns them off. Men like women to be females… to not be like workaholics, as that comes off as being uptight in the bedroom and control freaks… With you being Asian, you have an advantage. My European friends in particular adore Asian females because of their submissiveness. So work that to your advantage. At the same time, I can sympathize with you as a woman in New York City, but you have to do what you have to do to snag a man.”

The article did not mention if it was solicited or unsolicited advice. I wonder if de Lesseps was already intoxicated and feeling a bit chatty?
