To some people, living elegantly just comes naturally. For those who have to work a little harder for it, Countess Luann de Lesseps is here to make it easier. The original Real Housewives of New York City star and cabaret entertainer is the latest Bravolebrity to team up with Uber to remix one of her own hits, reworking “Money Can’t Buy You Class” just in time for the holiday gifting season.

The “Money Can Buy You Class” remix and its music video arrived Tuesday (Dec. 5). While the original insisted that no, all the cash in the world wouldn’t buy you any elegance, 13 years later, the countess’ new take points out that you can purchase a little bit of it after all.

“Showing up to a holiday party with nothing much to offer?/ You think you’re enough, but honey, you’re not,” sings the star, who’s in a stunning silver Jovani jumpsuit worthy of Beyonce’s Renaissance show. “Running late? Busy month?/ That’s no excuse/ Keep it classy with a last-minute gift from Uber Eats.”

Need some ideas? The star has some suggestions of what you can get via Uber Eats. “Scented candle? That’s cool!/ Empty-handed? Uncool!/ Place an order that makes them say ‘Oh la la,’” she continues before jumping into the reworked chorus. “Money can buy you class/ It can now!”

Her remix of “Money Can’t Buy You Class” is the second Bravo collab with Uber. Vanderpump RulesScheana Shay updated her song “Good As Gold” for the ride and delivery service in May. That commercial also featured fellow Sur-vers Ariana Madix and Lala Kent, but Shay’s video isn’t the only one with star power. De Lesseps’ “Money Can Buy You Class” features not only fellow RHONY star and good friend Sonja Morgan (who pops up with a well-timed shrug to throw a little shade at a Brooklyn housewife), but a few Easter eggs for fans as well. (Peep the “Be Cool” license plate on the black Rolls Royce!)

“Sonja and I always have a GREAT time!” de Lesseps tells Billboard, noting that she “jumped” on the chance to work with Uber on remixing her song. “When I started discussing the remake and music video with Uber, we knew we wanted her to make a cameo. And I’m so glad she was able to join us. We had a blast on set, as we always do when she pops into my [touring show] Countess Cabaret!”

As for those Easter eggs? The countess credits the ride-share company. “The Uber team had a few really creative ideas and we worked together to sort of sprinkle them throughout — within the song lyrics as well as on set!” de Lesseps shares. “I of course had to wear Jovani, and my favorite Easter egg is the ‘Chateau C’est La Vie’ sign within the decor, an ode to one of my favorite songs.”

The star — whose Countess Cabaret show hits Alberta, Canada, on Dec. 15-16 — also wants to help make shopping easier and more fun during this busy time of year by sharing some classy, countess-approved ideas. “We pulled together lists of some of my favorite holiday gifts that you can find directly in the Uber Eats app,” she says, “including ‘Gifts for Real Housewives,’ ‘Gifts for Cabaret Queens,’ ‘Gifts for Ultimate Girls Trips’ and more.”

But what would she give someone who has everything, such as Andy Cohen, who helped develop the wildly successful Housewives franchise and hosts all the juicy tell-alls? “I’d send him a bottle of champagne that he can enjoy with Anderson Cooper during New Year’s Eve,” says de Lesseps, who competed as Hibiscus on the most recent season of The Masked Singer. (Cohen and Cooper — who host CNN’s popular new year’s countdown program — did not drink during the most recent special due to the network’s new ban on on-air drinking.)

As for what she’d have Uber deliver to former RHONY castmate Bethenny Frankel? “A bag of coal,” de Lesseps quips. “She’s already got the gift of gab.”

With this second remix of “Money Can’t Buy You Class” (she previously worked with VPR‘s James Kennedy on a dance-club-ready version), the star is aiming high for potential new collaborators in the future. “I’d kill to work with Stevie Nicks. I’m a big fan and love all of her music” de Lesseps tells Billboard. “Manifesting that for 2024!”
