Luann de Lesseps is firing back at reports that she has risked the health of cast and crew on Real Housewives of New York by partying maskless. The 55-year-old was photographed at a birthday party indoors in Florida with pals, sans mask. Real Housewives of Miami stars Marysol Patton and Alexia Echevarria were also there.

RHONY filming has been shut down because a castmate (unnamed) has COVID.

De Lesseps tells Page Six that party-goers had to provide a negative COVID test to attend the party. “I took the mask off for some photos,” she told us. “Knowing everyone had tested negative, I felt comfortable doing that.”

She says she will quarantine when she returns to New York.
