First of all when I am 50, I hope and pray I look as fabulous as Luann de Lesseps. Oh did I mention – Lu turned 50 and celebrated her birthday this past weekend with friends – and her ex-boyfriend Jacques Azoulay!
Despite the fact that Jacques threw the Real Housewives Of New York star’s “Fifty Shades Of Fabulous” birthday fete, Luann insists the two have remained friends and there is no rekindling of romances, but they certainly looked cozy in photos from Luann’s celebration!
The Real Housewives of New York co-starsLuAnn de Lessepsand Heather Thomson (our favorites this season!) sat down with Buzzfeed to dish about everything from their shoe size to Jacques breaking his nose in tae kwon do! The ladies hit on many of their Housewives-related favorites and it has us questioning their sanity a little.
LuAnn is first to dish that Melissa Gorga is her favorite singing Housewife! When asked what her favorite original song was, LuAnn responded "The girl from New Jersey, Melissa Gorga. She’s not bad. If I have to pick one." Heather remained loyal to Lu and said, “Money Can’t Buy You Class”! I mean, who can beat “Money Can’t Buy You Class”?? Any LuAnn de Lesseps song, she’s the only singing housewife for me."
Nothing like reality TV to break up a few relationships! This year several reality stars called it quits on their longtime relationships, sometimes shocking the viewing public. And some PR stunts just didn't pan out. Unfortunately many of those meltdowns included plenty of scandal!
Last week at the Human Society To The Rescue Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street, Jacques was pimping his new wine and talking politely about his former lady love, The Countess.
Jacques had a tasting table set up at the event for his newest wine venture Gabriella Wines and chatted up Tom Murro on their split. "Jacques was in a super great mood, he goofed around posing for pics with me and my +1, Olympic Skating great Sasha Cohen, in the photo booth. He didn't seem heartbroken and didn't have a bad word to say about the Countess."
LuAnn revealed that the couple's main source of frustration had nothing to do with her onscreen affair with a pirate, but with their inability to have a child. Which is interesting considering LuAnn had her tubes tied, but whatever… Details/schmetails!
Anyway, LuAnn acknowledges that their 10-year age difference was just one of the many things that caused issues in the relationship. "There was a lot of frustration on both ends in that I know that Jacques would love to have a family,” she confesses to RadarOnline.
"They are at different points in their life now and have mutually agreed it's best," a rep confirms to Life & Style. "LuAnn is upset, but it's amicable and they remain friends. Jacques has been a wonderful part of her life."
