She created a popular music video entitled “Chic C’est la Vie” that was publicized again in May,  2010.

LuAnn de Lesseps was lawfully married to Alexandre de Lesseps in 1993. She is the fourth wife for him. They had two children named Noel and Victoria. They divorced in 2009. But LuAnn confirmed to the public that she will retain her first husband’s name. The laws pertaining to the French nobility did not allow her to retain the title of her first husband in her name, which adds the title Countess to her name.  Therefore, the title she has in her name is taken from her prior marriage with the French nobleman known as Count Alexandre de Lesseps. Alexandre is the heir to the architect of the Suez Canal known as Ferdinand de Lesseps. Though she lost her title due to the divorce with her first husband, she is still referred to with the same title even now.
