“Luann was thrilled when she saw Barbra’s longtime director, Richard Jay, sitting in her audience,” a source told The National ENQUIRER.
“He has seen the countess’ show many times and has been telling friends that it is simply fantastic,” the source continued.
“Richard has turned into Luann’s biggest fan. He turned up at her after-party and even taped an episode of ‘The Real Housewives.’
“He wouldn’t be this public with his praise unless the big boss, Babs, approved!”
