Watch the Video for "Chic C'est La Vie" by Countess LuAnn de Lesseps

Every time a Real Housewife releases a new song an angel gets its wings.

Today Countess LuAnn de Lesseps of The Real Housewives of New York City debuted the video for her second -- yes, second! -- singled titled "Chic C'est La Vie."

In the clip Her Elegance gets down at the Borgota hotel and casino in Atlantic City (no NYC locales available, LuAnn?) with fellow Housewives Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon. Why weren't the other NYC ladies featured? Simple: they didn't want to participate. Oh, well. Their loss!

Check out the video for "Chic C'est La Vie" below:

Let's do ourselves a favor and not try to compare this to actual music, but I have to say this is one of the more catchy Housewives diddies! Plus, the video appears to actually have some quality production behind it.

Lyrically it may not be the most complex, but all the song needs is a few autotuned warbles and it would sound like any Ke$ha rap-sing on the radio today. My favorite lyrics are in the bridge where LuAnn's cast mates get personalized shout outs:
"Jill, bring your jewelry. Cindy, bring those crystals. Ramona, bring that pinot. Sonja; her men. Kelly; the jellybeans! Alex and Simon. And I'll bring the diamonds."
How cheap of Alex and Simon to not bring anything to the Countess's fancy escapade! I guess they live in Brooklyn for a reason. You know what they say... Cue music!

What do you think of "Chic C'est La Vie" and how many times did you just listen to it, because if you say less than 10 you are a liar.
