The single mom joins Bravo’s “RHONY.”
Jenna Lyons is a famous style icon, former J. Crew fashion designer, tastemaker, and single mom, but you probably wouldn’t think of calling her a housewife. In fact, the Manhattan chic man was recently cast in the rebooted Bravo Guilty Pleasure The Real Housewives of New York City (Affectionately known to reality TV fans by the acronym: RHONY). As CEO of LoveSeen, a line of false lashes, Lyons is ready to document her big life in the Big Apple and open up to a whole new line of lashes fans.
She is no stranger to your TV screen.
With stints on both scripted and reality TV, Lyons was a guest star on Lena Dunham’s HBO show girl. She lends her name Stylish with Jenna Lyons, where the entrepreneur and working mother gives a look behind the scenes of the founding of the company. But her most high-profile (and probably most dramatic) performance to date is definitely the recent announcement that she’s joining the cast Real Housewives of New York City. Bravo made the big reveal at this year’s BravoCon, posting a photo of the intriguing new Season 14 cast flanked by Andy Cohen in her Instagram grid.
“Introducing… THE NEW CAST OF #RHONY SEASON 14! 🍎”, Bravo TV titled the post along with a list of all the show’s newcomers.
Lyons is a single mother to her son Beckett.
“15 years ago today I met the most important person in my life. my anesthetist. Beckett Lyons Mazeau arrived at 2:30 p.m. on October 3. I couldn’t love you more – never, never, never not love you. I’m so incredibly proud of you. Thanks for letting me be your mom – it’s the worst paying best job ever. I LOVE YOU. HAPPY BIRTHDAY B!!!” She captioned the post along with an avalanche of red hearts.
With a high profile parent sometimes comes unwanted media attention. As a young child, Lyon’s son was once pictured with his famous mother in an ad for J. Crew, which raked in national media coverage and caused an uproar over a rather innocent pink nail polish. Beckett, now a teenager, is reportedly quite intelligent and “the de facto “head of technology” in the Lyon company.”
Shortly after her divorce, she was infamously outed at the age of 43.
Certainly one of the downsides of fame is how the media belittles people who once put it on a pedestal, and Lyons knows that painful reality all too well. Synced from the New York Times Dubbed “the woman who dresses America,” the designer was too infamously outed by the New York Post at the age of 43. Once married to artist Vincent Mazeau, who is also Beckett’s father, the couple called it quits after nine years of marriage. Lyons then sparked a much-discussed romance with then-girlfriend Courtney Crangi, but they also split in 2017.
With Lyon’s love life being just one of many fascinating things about her, it will be exciting to see more of this working mom on the small screen. Alongside plenty of revelations, let’s hope she shed some light on where she gets all those fabulous glasses from.
