‘Real Housewife’ LuAnn de Lesseps Co-Anchors WNYW’s Morning Newscast

By Merrill Knox 

When Rosanna Scotto goes on vacation, who does WNYW call? The Countess, of course.

LuAnn de Lesseps, of “Real Housewives of New York City” fame, sat in for Scotto to co-anchor the 9 a.m. hour of the morning newscast with Greg Kelly yesterday (watch the video inside). 

The Countess c0-anchored the entire 9 a.m. hour, which included coverage of the troubled marriage of Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore, an interview with former “American Idol” contestant Kara DioGuardi, and a (less-than-comfortable for Kelly) segment on women who dread menopause.
