LuAnn de Lesseps has a new contract on

Contracts in show biz can be complex, but they can also be negotiated to fit one's lifestyle - especially if a celebrity's popularity can draw a crowd. In the entertainment industry though, you might need a good negotiator on that contract, and your attorney will need a good eye to ensure every little detail is covered and in writing. The detail missed could be the one that costs you.

If you're a big fan of "The Countess" in "The Real Housewives of New York City," you might be disappointed to know she will be starring in Season 6 a little less frequently than in the past. LuAnn de Lesseps, who plays the "The Countess," has been starring in the role since the show's beginning, but now she wants more time to do other things, such as spending time with family and working in her business. She has been busy negotiating a contract with a more limited role.

De Lessups will be starring on the show from time to time, but as a recurring part of the cast instead of a main cast member. The star claims the show was taking up too much of her time and energy. This way she still gets to be on the show, but it will no longer engulf her.

Negotiations took awhile, so don't expect to see "The Countess" on the first three episodes. Her contract deal was not completed in time for the beginning of Season 6. However, while she was negotiating her limited role, it appears Bravo was negotiating a contract with a new replacement model, Kristen Taekman.

Los Angeles entertainment law attorneys are used to negotiating contracts for celebrity actors, musicians and artists of all types. Entertainers often have unique and special negotiation requests. They require a strong negotiator and someone who knows entertainment law, as well as how to deal with contract disputes and other entertainment litigation.
