Bethenny Frankel liquored people up with her Skinnygirl cocktail company. Ramona Singer has wined her way to the top of the alcohol business.

And now their fellow Real Housewives of New York City star Luann de Lesseps is jumping into the biz.

I can exclusively reveal that Luann is going to be launching a line of infused vodkas.

Called The Countess Collection, the vodkas will hit stores this summer.

When I caught up with Luann over dinner at Lisa Vanderpump's Pump restaurant in West Hollywood recently, she told me her vodka will include all natural flavorings. Her new Pour It Forward program will donate $2 from each bottle sold to a local charity where the vodka was purchased.


Luann not only returns to the Real Housewives of New York City this season, but later this month she'll present her latest fashion collection on Evine Live. She also plans to expand with accessories and jewelry.

Luann also revealed that her college student daughter Victoria appears in Nick Jonas' new sexy music video for his single "Chains." Luann and Victoria were visiting artist Peter Tunney in Miami the night before he was set to direct the video.

"Peter said, 'Victoria has to be in the video,'" Luann said. "I changed her flight home so she could do it. She wore one of my dresses. All we had to do was buy her a pair of shoes."

Victoria pops up at the 2:11 mark dancing on the back of a moving golf cart and showing a lot of leg.
