It’s a mini reunion for the Real Housewives of New York.  “The Countess” LuAnn de Lesseps, and Jill Zarin with hubby Bobby, made their way to Russel Simmon’s estate in East Hampton to raise money for The Rush Art Foundation’s 10th Anniversary Art For Life Benefit.If you didn’t know, both ladies have books out.  LuAnn de Lesseps has her etiquette book, “Class with the Countess: How to Live with Elegance and Flair”.

And Jill just announced that she will be writing a book with her mom and sister called Secrets of a Jewish Mother.

“Even if you aren’t Jewish, you’ll appreciate this book,” Zarin said. “There is a section in it that asks questions like, ‘do you read medical journals?  Are you a natural matchmaker?’ I think people may read my book and discover they are a Jewish mother at heart!”

The book is to be out in May  2010.
