Victoria de Lesseps is the daughter of The Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps, and we’re ready to share lots of interesting facts about Victoria. She is a fan-favorite “house-kid,” and her mother has been a main RHONY cast member since the show’s inception in 2008. Bravo cameras have captured glimpses into Victoria’s life. However, there is more to learn about her.
Although Victoria was recently featured on The Real Housewives of New York, helping her mom to manage spending time with her personal trainer ex-boyfriend Garth Wakeford and enjoying a day of nude painting with her friends, some fans don’t know a lot about Victoria . The reality television daughter has lived a fascinating life away from Bravo cameras. Victoria was born on November 21, 1994. She is currently 26-years-old. Victoria’s father is Count Alexandre de Lesseps, and he is a descendant of Ferdinand de Lesseps. Ferdinand was a French diplomat who built the Suez Canal and initiated work on the Panama Canal. Luann was Alexandre’s fourth wife. Luann and Alexandre have two children, Victoria and her younger brother, Noel. When Victoria was about 15 years old, her parents filed for divorce following 16 years of marriage.

Victoria and her brother were introduced to reality TV star life at an early age when Luann starred in RHONY season one in the late 2000s. Luann soon began working on her career as a Countess turned Cabaret performer. As a young girl entering her teenage years, Victoria’s earliest moments on the reality series showed her sharing her love of art. She and her friends also got schooled on etiquette by the Countess. Victoria attended two private schools, Miss Porter’s School in Connecticut and the Ross School in East Hampton, New York. Victoria graduated from Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute with a Bachelor’s degree in communications design in 2016. While at college, Victoria was able to learn more about art as an intern for famed painter and photographer David Salle. See Victoria below:
Since graduating from college, Victoria has advanced her career as an artist. She produces a range of pieces, including collages, photography, fashion design illustrations, silkscreened artworks, and paintings. Victoria’s work has been featured at prestigious events, including DKNY’s 2014 Gallery Show and The Untitled Space’s exhibit, In the Raw: The Female Gaze on the Nude. On RHONY, Luann and her former cast member Bethenny Frankel attended Victoria’s exhibit at the 2019 Art Basel show during their 2019 trip to Miami. Recently, Victoria helped with fashion designer Nicole Miller’s New York Fashion Week 2019 Spring/Summer show. She continues to showcase her art on her @victoriadelesseps Instagram, where she has over 23,300 followers. She’s followed by mother’s co-stars Leah McSweeney, Sonja Morgan, and Eboni K. Williams. See her art below:
Like her mother, Victoria has also had her run-ins with the law. In April 2017, Victoria was arrested for driving under the influence in Sag Harbor, New York. She was released the next morning. In 2018, Victoria, Noel, and her father filed a lawsuit against their reality star mother. Luann is known to go too far, and her family was forced to take legal action when they believed she was misusing her money. As a consequence of Luann’s divorce from Count Alexandre, the RHONY housewife was instructed to sell her Hamptons home and put the estimated $8 million into a trust fund for Victoria and Noel. When Victoria, her brother, and her father believed Luann was using that money to buy a new home, they had no choice but to sue their mother. Luckily, the de Lesseps family members were able to work it out. The lawsuit was dropped.
Overall, Victoria has lived an exciting life on and off the reality show. She is the daughter of an ambitious woman who dreamed of stardom and made her dream come true. She is a gifted artist and a daughter who holds her reality star mother accountable. For these reasons and more, Victoria is a remarkable “house-kid.” Maybe Victoria will follow her mother’s path and get a center apple of her own someday. In the meantime, fans can continue to catch glimpses of Luann’s daughter on The Real Housewives of New York.
