LuAnn DeLesseps Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Luann de Lesseps Shares Update on Dating Life – Plus How She is Spending New Years Eve!

If there is anyone who had a rough 2017 and is ready for the new year it’s Luann de Lesseps. Lu pretty much put it out all on the table on RHONY, only to have her heart broken, resulting in divorce. Now the newly single Lu is speaking out to ET regarding her love life and what’s next for our favorite Countess:

On her current situation, Lu states: “I’m not really dating. I’m taking time for myself. I’m enjoying my children and my girlfriends … I’m getting my life back. I’m getting, you know, I’m looking for an apartment in the city. So, I’m just trying to get back on my feet. So, I don’t have time for boys right now, but that doesn’t mean I’m dead.”

It’s obvious that Lu loves love so I’m glad she’s taking find to find herself before rushing into anything serious.

Dorinda was at the same event and quickly chimed in that Luann wasn’t exactly sitting at home stating that Lu’s eyes “aren’t closed.”

“I saw a quick head turn as we we coming up the stairs. [She’s] still alive, gang! Still alive.”

Ramona also gave her two cents on the split, stating that the ladies never gloated that they were right stating:

“I never said, ‘I told you so,’ As soon as I heard the news, I reached out to her and I said, ‘I’m so sorry, my heart is breaking,’ because I know she really believed in that white picket fence, and the knight and shining armor, and I know she actually loved him, and it was sad. We all wanted it to work. When she took that plunge, and made that move, we were all hoping it would work.”

We all know that this NYE would mark Luann and Tom’s one year anniversary so naturally she was asked about her plans. When speaking with E! News Luann stated that this NYE she would still be celebrating a marriage – just not her own!

“On New Year’s Eve, I’m going to a wedding in Chile. I had a rough period and now I just feel liberated and I’m doing me and enjoying my friends and family and it’s good. I’m in a good place.”

While I’m glad Luann won’t be at home crying into a bowl of ice cream, I’m sure seeing another happy couple walk down the aisle on her anniversary will be difficult. Stay strong Lu!

    “I don’t have time for boys.” Really!!! How about I don’t have time for men! That’s Luann’s probably she thinks and acts like a giddy little teenage girl. Grow up Luann!!

  • Nikki

    I Love Lu, class act that woman & beautiful & really funny sometimes. I used to get annoyed by Dorinda but I like her now too. Party On Ladies!

    O/T Just read in the New York Post that Bethanny is suing Jason for custody of Bryn. Oy!

    • Boo

      Oh my, must go and read.
      Thanks for the heads up

    • Boo

      Wow, this is going to be UGLY!

      • September24

        Exactly!

    • samael

      Thanks Septemeber24

      gee, I am torn…she just got rid of the dude with the court system…with children, it is so sketchy for me,
      one parent should never have more than the other of the child, that both are in Bryn’s life should be enough.

      Jason’s restraining order is almost up – wonder if she is doing this to push!

      • Boo

        Wonder if he’s still bringing Bryn into the middle of his nastiness with Beth. He seems to have met his match and vice versa.
        So sad

    • ~Medusa~

      I think Bitchenny’s continuous over reactions toward her dismissed Sperm Donor has paved the way for her to get rid of him for good. She has told her “side” ad nauseum for sympathy & a complete banishment of Jason from the planet. Jason has made no public statement at all. He has put his daughter’s needs first. Nobody can deny that he has been a loving & present father for Bryn. Whereas, Barfenny has used the girl as a prop & bargaining chip. Let Witchenny take Jason to court. She won’t prevail. If for some reason she does win full custody, then shame on her – for removing Bryn’s father from her life. BFrankelstein will be setting the same path she claims her mother made for HER. She’ll get the same results: a neurotic, self absorbed, greedy, angry, unloving brat.

    So nothing’s changed ?! Same ol’ story , same ol’ Lu.

  • September24

    I’d be crying in a bowl of ice cream. The whole thing is sad – didn’t even make it to the one year mark. I hope she meets a nice guy in Chile. I also hope that Tom is crying – I really hope he feels bad for what he put her through.

  • Niki

    Good for you, Lu! Stay strong, get hammered and f—k a Chilean pirate at this wedding, start 2018 with a bang literally. ?

    • September24

      Chilean pirate! LOL! Good one!

  • Boo

    Lu’s resilant, she’ll bounce back better than ever. Good for her.

    • Rain

      She sure will! She lives life fully ?

      • lipppo jaqqq

        she should stop dreaming of knights in shining armour and embrace one-eyed patches and iron-hooked buccaneers instead.

        • Rain

          There are no more knights left lipppo ? so bring in the pirates ?

          • lipppo jaqqq

            pretty much. the difference in your sex life with either is: knights use armor while pirates bury their treasure.

            • Rain

              Either I misunderstood that or it’s really dirty ?????

  • Kirby

    Team Lu ?????? She would be great to hang out with , then have Dodo come over. Ha ????

    • Rain

      Your perfect night , ha? ??

      • lipppo jaqqq

        hope there’s no report she did pirates of the chilean…LOL! watch out captains hook and teague!

    • ~Medusa~

      I agree. Of all the RHONY cast members, Lu is the one who I think would be the most fun. She’s had an extraordinary life prior to joining this 2-bit reality tv show. I’d love to hear of her life in Europe.

      • Kirby

        I have always felt she would be so much fun and she’s so vibrant . Since there was talk of spin-offs , Lu and Dodo around Europe would be the best housewife spinoff ever ???

        • ~Medusa~

          That’s a great idea, Mein Freund!!! Pitch it to Andy. You can reach him through his facebook account. He does read the comments and many times he replies.

          • Kirby

            Not a bad idea Medusa ?????

            • ~Medusa~

              Let us know how it works out.

      • michers

        I’d drink and fall in bushes with her .

        • ~Medusa~

          Hahaha… I’ve fallen in bushes without drinking. I was less graceful than Lu was, while smashed. I saw the Luann Special. It was fascinating.

          • michers

            I haven’t too much of a fan of her’s last two seasons but the special was pretty good .

  • ~~ La erik ~~

    She’s okay! Trust me!

    • michers

      Right?

  • Cin

    great to hear she’s good….

  • ~Medusa~

    The above photo of Luann is smashing. She looks beautiful!!! I admire her strength and her ability to roll with the punches. She never complains.

    • Rain

      Is this a recent pic? She does look gorgeous
      Happy Monday ?

      • ~Medusa~

        Good Monday Morning, Sweet Rain!!! I don’t know if it’s a recent photo. I always liked Lu’s hairstyle. It was unique and looks good on her.

        • Rain

          She’s a fun girl , I like her ? and she looks good from every angle

          • ~Medusa~

            I completely agree.

      • Kirby

        Mother , how about Jimmy G ??????.

        • Rain

          Oh that was a riot ha ? ??? my husband was jumping up and down ??. I’ll say it before you do , yes it took an ITALIAN ?

      • Boo

        That is a great pic of her.

        • Rain

          Yes it sure is ??? she’s very beautiful xoxo

      • lipppo jaqqq

        she’s got that twinkerbelle vibe again. go pirates!

        • Rain

          lipppo ?? nice to see you , always funny

    • Kirby

      Truth . Team Lu all the way ??

    • lipppo jaqqq

      all the pirates are rejoicing.

      • ~Medusa~

        Good. Luann will have some fun with them.

  • samael

    Good for Lu!

    she bounced back the second the season ended!
