In very shocking news, the NY Post is reporting today that LuAnn de Lesseps has seperated from her husband of 16 years, Count de Lesseps. LuAnn’s rep also confirms the separation.
According to the post, LuAnn found out her husband had been cheating on her with another woman. A close pal said, “They decided to separate. She got wind he was seeing somebody and he didn’t answer her when she called. He finally sent her an e-mail saying he was with an Ethiopian woman in Geneva and he was serious with her.”
The couple recently celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary on March 16th. Those who are familiar with the Real Housewives on New York show know that LuAnn’s husband was always away in Europe on trips. Friends of LuAnn say she was blindsided and is devastated.
A rep for Luann states, “It is obviously a very difficult time for the countess and count, but they plan to remain friends and their primary focus will be to do what is best for their two children.”
This is sad story for all parties involved. Hopefully the kids will be okay.
Kim Zolciak’s publicist posted the following on her official blog site. There was some past drama with the site after a post last month that stated the site was being shut down because Kim did not pay her bills. Kim accused her publicist Jonathan of making up the lies which he denied. Seems the two have now settled their difference.
“My former client Kim Zolciak and I have settled our differences which includes voluntarily dismissing all pending legal claims against one another. Our past grievances were due to a misunderstanding that regrettably got blown out of proportion.
Going forward, I wish Ms. Zolciak the very best with respect to her acting and overall entertainment endeavors. I will be shutting this blog down in FULL Monday, March 30, 2009, night at 10 PM EST.
In an attempt to prove he is not stalking Gretchen Rossi,Jay Photoglou decided to take a lie detector test and submit the results to RadarOnline. Jay is the sleazy guy who’s been claiming to be Gretchen’s ex boyfriend and leaking out every photo they ever took together.

In the never ending drama of the OC housewives, Jeff’s ex wife and mother of his three children Sharon spoke out recently and cleared the air on the whole Gretchen issue. She posted this as a comment on our other blog. We were able to verify with 100% certainty that the comment was indeed written by Sharon. What she had to say is very interesting.
“My kids do NOT and NEVER have adored Gretchen….they know exactly what she’s about and what she’s up to and has been up to all along and their Dad knew it too. My daughter, Jill making any statement re. Gretchen explained that she simply doesn’t want anymore negative comments written about her Dad which is embarrassing and hurtful to her and her brother and sister. Jill appearing to defend Gretchen (slightly) is done only to quiet any negative statements made about her Dad period. Our three kids, Jennifer, Jill and Jake (Lizzy is not Jeff’s daughter, nor mine…she’s a long-time friend of our daughter Jill) are not fans of Rossi at all and how they describe her in real terms, isn’t nice and hasn’t been nice historically. The fact is, Jeff was never going to marry her and she knows it but likes to play it like they were so much in love (gee…wonder why???). I’ve known Jeff for 25 years and I did visit him in August while he was in the hospital at which time we talked a lot. What I know is totally different than what Gretchen portrays which means, I know the truth and she knows that I know the truth. Sometimes I feel pity for her which is about the most I can feel given all of her lies over the course of time. I really feel sorry for her family, especially her Mom.
My kids are so far above Gretchen in integrity, self-respect and character that it’s really embarrassing that they were ever exposed to her to begin with. Jeff said he was lonely and knew that he appeared desperate to a lot of people, probably both and not unlike a lot of people that are in their mid-life. Gretchen badgered him into being part of this show to begin with and Tamra exposing Gretchen for the fraud she is was gutsy even knowing that she’d experience some backlash from it. Gretchen screwing around on Chris with Jeff and on Jeff with Jay and Jay with Slade naturally would have it’s downside and if Gretchen believed that all of this would remain secret means that she is about as intelligent as a box of rocks. So….Jay exposed her…she’s earned all the disrespect she’s been given and gives to others and if she believes she deserves an iota of respect at all, well….I’m back to the box of rocks intellect again.”
Seems like one or more of the OC housewives will not be back for the next season as Bravo is now looking for new housewives! We’re crossing our fingers and hoping the middle aged mean girls Tamara and Vicky will be the ones getting the axe. The casting information below has been verified to be legit.
Update- Producers will be hold a casting call on April 2 at South Coast Plaza at the rotunda in front of Macy’s, 3333 Bristol St., Costa Mesa. The time is 5.00 – 8.00 p.m.
‘THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ORANGE COUNTY’
Bravo’s celebrated series about real women, living fabulous real lives, is headed back to the OC! The hit docu-soap TV series gives viewers an inside look at Southern California’s most glamorous Housewives. Bravo is looking for fabulous women and their families to be featured in the next season of the series.
We are looking for outgoing, exciting, strong, focused women who reside in South Orange County and want to share their lives with us.
We are looking for women who are “Housewives” in the present-day sense. They should be lively and energetic, with defined opinions and views. The women will have busy lives, involvement with the community, strong work ethic, an active social calendar and an enjoyment of the good life.
We love women who are self-confident and happy with who they are.
The women, their significant others and families must be open to sharing their experiences with the producers and the television audience.
According to new reports, The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kim Zolciak skipped out on a charity event of hers for battered women to go on vacation in the Bahamas.
AJC reports that Kim was supposed to make a “special appearance” at the event Saturday in which attendees donate gently used shoes for a charity she started to help battered women. But she instead bailed out, flying to the Bahamas on Friday morning.
Kim’s friend and co-founder of the charity attempts to defend Kim, “Kim has gone out of town for some mental R&R,” said Cori Davenport. Guess it’s understandable that she needs a break from umm um, what is it she does again?
There are also rumors that Kim and Nene got into a big altercation this past week, but we have yet to confirm that it really happened.
This picture was posted by TMZ today of Gretchen making out with Slade! We can now officially call them a couple. For those not familiar with Slade, he appeared on the 1st and 2nd seasons of the RHOOC as the boyfriend of Jo De LaRosa. Anything is an upgrade from the sleazy Jay Photoglou.
The two were photographed while docked on a boat in Newport Harbor on Wednesday. The new couple were also spotted at a Lakers game earlier this week.
