In very shocking news, the NY Post is reporting today that LuAnn de Lesseps has separated 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.
