'Real Housewives of New York City': Viewers cringe as 'drunk' LuAnn sings 'Happy Birthday' to Dorinda
'Real Housewives of New York City' star LuAnn de Lesseps might be the star of her own cabaret show and have a few singles under her belt, but fans are far from impressed with the housewife's singing skills. On the latest episode of 'RHONY', LuAnn was invited to fellow housewife Dorinda Medley's 50th birthday party. The party was attended by Dorinda's family and close friends.
The guests began raising a toast in Dorinda's honor and praising the housewife in their speeches. Soon enough, LuAnn somehow managed to find a microphone and stood up to give her toast. She began narrating a long neverending toast about her friendship with Dorinda, As the guests began getting antsy on hearing LuAnn's drawling speech, the housewife refused to end her speech and went on until somebody asked her to wind it up quickly.
LuAnn then grudgingly ended her speech. Just when the show's fans began thinking that they were done watching LuAnn's attempts to steal the limelight, the housewife surprised everyone by beginning to sing the 'Happy Birthday' song for Dorinda.
In her husky voice, LuAnn began crooning the birthday song while drawling and slurring the lyrics. Dorinda compared LuAnn's performance to an SNL sketch and couldn't stop chuckling at her fellow housewife's shenanigans. While Dorinda found the entire thing amusing, fans however couldn't stop cringing at LuAnn's singing. A fan tweeted, "#rhony Luann you are drunk. Sit down. It's not pretty at all."

Another fan wrote, "Luann has surprisingly had some solidly authentic moments this season, but you can always count on her to bring the cringe #rhony."
"I am tired of LuAnn her singing and cabaret. We don’t care. She sounds terrible. As NeNe would say, 'you can’t sing and you heard it from me!' #RHONY," expressed a fan.
#RHONYWe never need to hear Luann sing Happy birthday again. Life is not a cabaret," declared a fan.

While LuAnn's singing left them cringing, fans couldn't stop laughing at Dorinda's witty commentary about LuAnn's performance in her green room interview. Dorinda roasted LuAnn's need for always being the center of attention and her singing. A fan shared, "Watching Dorinda’s impression of LuAnn singing happy birthday was the best part of tnite.. what are we gunna do without her next season? #RHONY."
Another fan expressed, "#RHONY @BravoTV @Andy They need to keep Dorinda on RHONY if for nothing else but her confessional critique of 'Cabaret LuAnn'.
