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."
Ramona Tweeted out about the event, admitting that she's a terrible bowler. "Excited for tonight's Celebrity All Star Bowling Classic with @2STNYC ! Mario and I can get very competitive! Team captain at lucky strike for charity. Mario is my designated bowler for me as I stink at this game lol". Mario did come through for Ramona with his mad ballin' skills, "Mario just got a strike so excited !!"
LuAnn de Lesseps has been in the spotlight a lot recently – for all the wrong reasons! The Real Housewives of New York star has been accused of cheating on camera with a very dashing young pirate. LuAnn emphatically denies that any sort of misdeeds took place, but sometimes the lady doth protests too much!
In a new interview with the Miami New Times, LuAnn discusses the alleged cheating and how this season has been different with Jill Zarin and Alex McCord out of the picture!
"I was really, really sad about that," LuAnn says of learning Jill was fired. "Jill is the one that got me on the show. I met Jill and she said, 'I think you would be perfect!' I really miss Jill and Kelly [Bensimon]. Alex and Simon [van Kempen] I could live without." The feelings must be mutual as Simon recently did an interview in which he openly wondered if LuAnn was a "liar" or a "slut!"
While the Real Housewives of New York star maintains that things were kept strictly platonic and she didn't get to swashbucklin with a certain pirate, RadarOnline reports that LuAnn's longtime beau is ready to make her walk the plank over the rumors!
"All of the housewives are sent advanced copies of the upcoming episode that is going to be aired a week beforehand," a source close to the situation reveals. "Normally, LuAnn and Jacques watch the upcoming episode together but this past week, for the first time in a very long time, they didn't."
