The NYPostreported yesterday that Count Alex De Lesseps was attempting to reconcile with LuAnn. The reason being he had broken up with his Ethopian girlfriend, Princess Abajobir. The Count is however denying the story today, saying he and the princess ended things amicably, and that he does not intend to reconcile with LuAnn. The full post is below -
COUNT Alex de Lesseps takes issue with the source who told us “so bluntly” that he “got rid” of his Ethiopian girlfriend, Princess Abajobir. In an e-mail, he asserts, “We separated amicably and will remain friends, just as our children will.” The count also threw cold water on the idea he and Countess LuAnn might reconcile: “I am not trying to get back with the count ess in any way, as your spies suggested. We will re main friends and take care of our children.” The count, who rented a villa in babe-rich St. Tropez for the sum mer, might not be lonely for long.
The Real Housewives franchise doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. Bravo has picked up a third season for the Real housewives of New York City reality show. The show will premiere in 2010 although production will begin in the fall. Bravo is also casting for additional housewives to join the likes of Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer and Alex McCord.
The Real Housewives of New York’s popularity continues to grow from one season to another. The season finale and reunion special averaged over two million viewers.
And if you can’t get enough of the “Real Housewives” shows then stay tuned for Real Housewives of Atlanta season 2 which will premiere on July 30th.
Below are some of their teasers on what is to come this season -
Kandi Burruss – DeShawn Snow’s replacement is identified as a friend of Lisa Wu Hartwell. Kandi, who is working on a solo album in her home studio, has a six year old daughter and a fiance — with six kids. It’s too soon to say how her arrival will change the dynamics among the other four, but the producers obviously hope she engages them more than DeShawn did.
Kim Zolciak – during this episode says she’s single and no longer with Big Poppa (the still unnamed married man Lee Najjar.) She again seeks advice from her psychic.
Lisa Wu Hartwell – The 38 year old mother of three is thinking about a fourth. Tension remains between her and Kim over the reunion episode where Lisa accused Kim of spreading false rumors about her e.g. she lost custody of her kids with hubby No. 1 Keith Sweat because she took drugs.
Sheree Whitfield – clashes with a party planner for her “post divorce “independence party.” It’s certainly a highlight of hour one. “Whatever happened to customer service?” Sheree said. She also talks about being booted from her $2 million home that her ex husband Bob stopped paying for and had to move into a more modest home.
NeNe Leakes – is also in a new (presumably rental) home and there are some amusing scenes between her and gay hairdresser buddy Dwight Eubanks. She and Kim are still estranged after NeNe last year mocked Kim’s country music ambitions behind her back, but both are making attempts to reconcile.
The NYPost is reporting that Countess LuAnn de Lesseps might be reuniting with her estranged husband, Count Alex. In case you forgot, this is the same husband that ended their marriage by emailing her to let her know he had fallen for another women while in Ethopia.
The NYPost article is below -
“COUNTESS LuAnn de Lesseps — who split from husband Count Alex after the second season of “Real Housewives of New York City” — might be reconciling soon. The count, who is not swimming in money, rented a St. Tropez villa for 100,000 euros for the summer to impress his girlfriend, Ethiopian Princess Kemeria Abajobir Abajifar, who brought her two kids to play with the Lesseps’ spawn, Victoria, 14, and Noel, 12. “Things did not work out,” reports our Riviera spy, who said the princess’ behavior seemed less than noble, “her manners leaving a lot to be desired. After one week Count Lesseps ordered everyone out of the house and is now trying to reconcile with, you guessed it, good old LuAnn from the good old US of A.” LuAnn’s rep confirmed, “It’s true Alex got rid of the girlfriend,” but added that LuAnn was in the South of France separately and not cohabiting with her husband.“
The Bachelorette’sJillian Harris finally did what everyone had been wanting for the past couple of weeks – Sent Wes Home! Jillian speaks out on the whole Wes issue in her new blog about the show. She admits she kept Wes for “way too long.” For some strange reason, she still doubts Wes actually had a girlfriend – sighs.
“So … Wes! I know I kept him for WAY too long. I FULLY admit this. Someone on here wrote the truest way to explain it — it’s like you’re watching a horror movie that you starred in … And all your friends are yelling at you, “He’s behind you! He’s behind you!” Ha. There are so many ways to explain my connection with Wes. I cringe to admit this, but I truly was blinded by many of Wes’s “good qualities” for the better half of his stay that I refused to see all the red flags (and there were a lot of them!).
I still don’t know if Wes had a girlfriend, but I do think Wes was there for his career. Along the way, we did build a friendship but his presence on the show was a disservice to both of us. It made me look like a fool and like I had bad judge of character, and it made him look like someone he is not. I guess this is what you lay out on the line when you sign up for something like this, right? Ultimately, you are all still entitled to your opinion, but I am a huge supporter of forgiveness and I hope you can give Wes a break and lay this one to rest.”
It’s good to see her admit her bad choice. I am however surprised she still doubts he had a girlfriend. Wes’s “girlfriend” Laurel Kagayspoke out last week defending Wes and claiming they were just friends.
Jake also spoke out on the issue and even said Wes and Laurel are still dating. I still choose to believe Jake on this one. Someone needs to tell Wes that he can pretty much kiss his country music career goodbye. No one is going so support a jerk. He has officially taken the crown of the biggest jerk title from Jason Mesnick.
Theybf is reporting that Monica Leon aka Danger from The Love of Ray J is now pregnant. Yes she’s really pregnant this time judging from the above photo that was taken this weekend in the Hamptons.
Her man and the assumable father of her unborn child looks to be her ex fiance, Gabriel Cannon. Gabriel is the younger brother of Nick Cannon. Congrats to Danger. I am however a bit sad we won’t be getting any For the Love of Danger dating show any time soon.
UPDATE – Danger has confirmed via her twitter that she is indeed pregnant.
