When it comes to etiquette, manners and overall good behavior, even celebrities need help navigating the rough waters of stardom! It’s a good thing Countess LuAnn de Lesseps of The Real Housewives of New York City is joining forces with OK! to school them on the right thing to do! In a rough situation, we just ask, “What would the countess do?” This week, the countess chimes in on Nick Carter's sister Leslie's death and Celine Dion's wardrobe malfunction.
Nick Carter's 25-year-old sister, Leslie Carter, passed away suddenly in New York this past Wednesday morning. That same day, Nick's publicist released a statement saying that the singer's tour will go on but he's dedicating it to his sister. When it comes to etiquette, should Nick have taken some time off from his work to mourn the loss of his sister?
My heart goes out to the Carter family as they try to make sense of Leslie’s sudden and unexpected death. I’m sure that Leslie would want Nick to go on tour as planned and that she would be proud that he’s dedicating it to her memory. Everyone deals with death differently, and there is no one right way to go on after someone you love dies.
Tip: Staying busy can be therapeutic after a tragic loss.
Celine Dion accidentally flashed her audience at the Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival in Trelawny, Jamaica, in a short gold dress. How do you determine the appropriate length for a dress?
I am a huge fan of Celine Dion, and I love the way she dresses for her performances. The little gold dress she wore at the jazz festival would have worked just fine if she weren’t onstage with fans looking up at her rather than straight on. A good rule of thumb for dress length is that your underwear shouldn’t show if you bend over or if you are climbing stairs.
Tip: Even though the dress fits, you should think twice before wearing it.
