Luann Van Houten (née Mussolini) is the wife of Kirk Van Houten and the mother of Milhouse Van Houten. She has been married to Kirk twice, getting divorced once, due to an argument that they had at Homer and Marge's dinner party.[1]


Luann Van Houten originated from Tuscany, Italy, showing she is Italian-American, as her mother is Italian. She was born in Shelbyville, however moved to Springfield at a young age.[2] She was born on December 1, 1970 – 1980. She lacks the stereotypically exaggerated mannerisms associated with most other Italian-Americans in Springfield, such as Fat Tony, or the chef Luigi. When she was a child, she went to "Camp Land-A-Man" (which basically served as a finishing school) with Marge, Patty and Selma, Helen Lovejoy, and Cookie Kwan.[3]

Luann was married to Kirk for several years and bore Milhouse. Their marriage was unhappy and, after an argument over a game of Pictionary, she leaves Kirk after he angrily remarks after previously drawing it and she drew a far better version of dignity that it is no wonder that he can't draw "dignity", since he gave it up when he married her. Although Kirk found the new liberty of a single life tough, Luann uses her new found freedom to live life on the fast lane.[1] Luann began dating American Gladiator Pyro shortly after her divorce with Kirk, but was caught cheating on him with his best friend, Gyro.[4]

In Apu's bachelor years, she had been one of his bachelorettes.[5] It is once revealed Luann had also gone out with Disco Stu, disco dancing. As well, she also admits she had begun a relationship with Captain McCallister. Otto revealed that he used to date her.[6] At some point while she was still married to Kirk, she slept with Dr. Hibbert at a key party.[7] Despite rekindling, she and Kirk still have issues.

When the Van Houtens are on the verge of reuniting, Bart and Milhouse hatch a scheme to get them to separate again (because Milhouse enjoyed both of them fighting over him). The scheme backfires, and nearly results in the separation of Homer and Marge. Bart and Milhouse try another hapless scheme by attempting to push a mannequinned version of Bart over a waterfall. Since then, they are often seen together.[8] After some years, they decide to marry again. Their honeymoon goes wrong since they fall from their ship and are lost in an island. When they are rescued, they go back to Springfield.

Kirk, Luann and Milhouse all have similar appearances. Bart once asked Kirk and Luann if they are siblings.[9]

  • Luann may have had Kleptomaniacal tendencies, as while fighting with Kirk Van Houten shortly before their divorce, she mentioned that she stole shirts from the church donation bin.[1]
  • She was apparently born without eyebrows.[1]
  • She also apparently frequently told bedtime stories that were filled with negative vibes about her husband, such as how "rotten" it was to be married by a "loser" or the fact that he carries a change purse.[1]
  • According to The Simpsons: Tapped Out dialogue, Luann had a fling with Kearney, then she claims there are too many painful memories implying it was a tough break up.
