The Housewives Always Have Each Other

We've heard rumors that the "Real Housewives" of New York have been blacklisted at various high-profile social events around town. That certainly makes sense: Would you want Jill Zarin or Alex McCord lapping up attention on your red carpet? Sadly, the same seems to apply to events hosted by the ladies from the Bravo show.

On Tuesday night, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps celebrated the release of her new book, Class With The Countess: How To Live With Elegance And Flair, with a signing at the Borders on Park Avenue. Who showed up that you'd recognize? No one—except, of course, for the other women from the show (minus Kelly Bensimon), all of whom probably had no choice thanks to their iron-clad Bravo contracts.

Oh, well. At least one photographer was on hand to capture the moment, or the world may have never even known it happened.
