“It was very awkward for the new Housewives, especially with the Bravo execs there,” an eyewitness said.
"She wasn’t invited, wasn’t on the guest list, and just totally crashed the party!"
According to insiders, Jill was only at the party for half an hour, but it was still enough time to get herself some much-needed press and talk to reporters.
“She walked in like she owned the place and said she was only there to congratulate LuAnn,” the eyewitness recalled.
“People were trying not to look at her, but she really made it awkward for everyone.”
Countess LuAnn had a season 5 premiere party at the trendy Lantern's Keep cocktail salon in the Iroquois Hotel in New York City with all current castmembers and new additions, Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson.
