Real Housewives NYC: The Tableclothes: The Bib / Tablecloth [video]
Bravo is just going to milk the Real Housewives of New York City for all its worth — after not one but two reunion episodes, they dropped a friggin third that included "lost footage."
The latest episode was more or less uneventful, except for this little nugget: Countess LuAnn de Lesseps' nieces are budding "product designers" and made "tableclothes," a tablecloth that wraps around your neck to become a bib. And since everyone is so nice, they humored them and ate a meal wearing the ridiculous contraptions. Says an unnamed family member: "So we can eat like pigs. I love it." For royalty, a bib must be so very vulgar.
The Countess, in her own words:
I'm very close to my nieces, the twins, Quinn and Nicole, who are adorable. Nicole is into product design, and her and her friend brought me a gift which is something the two of them and their design team which have produced, which is this "tableclothes." There's a magnetic thing in the back, and you can put it on around the back of your neck, and you have your napkin, or your serviette, right there with the tablecloth... I think it's a really inventive thing.
