'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills': Did Dana Wilkey's song rip off Countess LuAnn de Lesseps' 'Chic C'est la Vie'?

dana-wilkey-25000-sunglasses-song-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills-gi.jpg"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" second-stringer Dana Wilkey has joined the ranks of Kim Zolciak, Melissa Gorga and other singing Bravo-lebrities by releasing her first single, "25,000," but it's "Real Housewives of New York" mainstay LuAnn de Lesseps that it sounds like she may have borrowed from.

Wilkey's song, which debuted Monday (May 7) on On Air with Ryan Seacrest, references a scene from "Real Housewives" in which Dana repeatedly told party guests like Kyle Richards and Camille Grammer that her sunglasses cost $25,000. And Dana wants to make sure everybody realizes that you're not laughing at her; she's laughing with you.

"I feel like it's now become a pop culture funny thing that happened on the show, and I wanted people to know that I am laughing at myself as much as they're laughing at me," Dana tells Ryan.

Click over to RyanSeacrest.com to hear such groundbreaking spoken-word lyrics as, "Got money to burn, I'm single and I'm naughty/Tiffany's, Cartier, Gucci, Armani/Break out your black card, boys/It's time to party/C'mon, c'mon/I've got more carats than Bugs Bunny."

And check out the Countess's similarly lavish-lifestyle lyrics below in her video for "Chic, C'est la Vie."


Better song: "25,000" or "Chic, C'est la Vie"?
