Viewers of the Real Housewives of New York are now very familiar with the Stumblebums, a band LuAnn de Lesseps hired to play at her Life & Style Christmas party.
The mohawk-sporting group caused a sensation at the event when they followed up Jingle Bells with a sweet little ditty called “F*ck you in the a**”.
After seeing Alex McCord’s RumorFix recap, the band left us a message explaining what happened at the party and how they were treated by LuAnn. Here’s what they had to say:
“You have to understand the band did exactly what it was supposed to do. We played Christmas songs outside in the freezing cold for an hour. They showed none of that. The band waited 2 hours for LuAnn to show up for a rehearsal, she blew it off. They showed none of that. The band had a minimum of 75 emails pertaining to what songs to play so there was no copyright infringement. You don’t see that.
LuAnn took a glass of wine from the singer (his first and only glass of wine) after missing her rehearsal. The viewer also didn’t see the part where she doesn’t want to pay us because it’s going to be on Bravo. Like its OK for her to make 26K an episode but the band shouldn’t make anything.
Anyhow the band did make a hundred dollars a guy. A nominal fee for working and being treated like crap. They also edited the song so all you hear is him saying “I Wanna F@ck You in the A@@” over and over. They must of really liked it ’cause they were up out butts about signing our releases.
Yeah, it was a helluva way to make a hundred bux. It’s all about money and they got the shots they wanted. We don’t claim to be clean cut but come on, we do our music quite well. Not to mention that band wasn’t even amplified. Another reason we sound like crap…
And there you have it.
