“Real Housewife” Launches Bid For NYC Mayor [VIDEO]

The New York Daily News reports:

A former regular on “Real Housewives of New York City” has her eye on Gracie Mansion. Bronx-born businesswoman Barbara Kavovit is running for mayor, adding a reality-show twist to an already unusual campaign season.

“There seems to be a lack of real-world experience by our current politicians and while they didn’t create our current crisis, there seems to be no plan at leading us out of it,” she said in a Tuesday statement.

On “Real Housewives,” she was known as a friend of cast member Luann de Lesseps and subject of an ill-fated makeover attempt by Ramona Singer.
