“Luann has met with the casting directors of the musical Chicago about playing “Mama Morton” – the keeper of the jail,” an insider told Straight Shuter.

As readers know, that is the part originally played by Queen Latifah in the hit film, and currently being played by another RHONY star, Kandi Burruss.

“Following Luann’s arrest and potential prison time, this is casting genius. And unlike other Housewives, this one can sing!” added the insider.
