NYC ‘Housewife’ Countess Luann De Lesseps Separating From Count

It’s looks like Countess Luann de Lesseps has separated from her husband, Count Alex de Lesseps after she learned that he has been seeing another woman. The count sent an email to a friend of Luann’s “saying he was with an Ethiopian woman in Geneva and he was serious with her.”

“Luann was blindsided. She was just devastated,” a close friend told Page Six. “They have basically lived apart for many years — he lives in Europe and comes and goes as he pleases, but she never thought this would happen.

“It has been very rough for her and the children [Victoria and Noel], but she’s taking the high road and will remain friends with him,” the source added. “She has no intention of making it bitter or becoming angry. She’s just trying to come to terms with [the separation and impending divorce]. She feels this is the ultimate test for her to handle this with dignity and grace.” 

We can only imagine how this way play out on the next round of The Real Housewives of New York. Hopefully it will be discussed over a round of drinks!
