LuAnn de Lesseps may have just split with her longtime boyfriend Jacques Azoulay, but that doesn’t mean that she isn’t looking for love. In fact, the Real Housewives of New York star is hinting that she may be heading towards a new relationship with her ex-husband, Count Alexandre de Lesseps.
LuAnn and The Count were married for 16 years and had two children together, Victoria and Noel, before splitting in 2009. Although their split was a bit messy, with The Count having informed LuAnn via a note that he had moved on with an Ethiopian woman from Geneva, the pair remained in touch for the sake of their kids.
At the time, LuAnn was devastated, but months later, she met and fell in love with Jacques.
Now that she and Jacques have split, LuAnn and The Count appear to have gotten closer and in a new interview, LuAnn admits that he is still in love with her — and that getting back together is a possibility.
“Never say never,” LuAnn told Hollywood Life after being asked if she and The Count would reconcile. “Look, I’m the mother of his children. He’ll always love me. He’s never been able to find anyone after me, ever! We talk all the time.”
If LuAnn and The Count did get back together, it wouldn’t be the first time a Real Housewives star divorced their husband only to reconcile years later. Fans will likely recall NeNe Leakes having done the same. She and Gregg Leakes split up in 2010 only to get back together in 2012 and wed in a made-for-TV special this past June.
