The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Luann de Lesseps Is Introducing New Beau Radamez Rubio Gaytan To Friends; ‘She’s Completely Smitten’ and ‘Happy’

A fling to the real thing!

Luann de Lesseps is turning a recent fling into a full-fledged relationship.

In March, the Real Housewives of New York star had a fling with Radamez Rubio Gayton while visiting Tulum following her split with ex-boyfriend Garth Wakeford.

Lu’s new man, a former NFL player who manages the Amansala resort, is reportedly racking up the frequent-flier miles to visit the reality TV star on the East Coast.

“She’s dating Radamez Rubio Gaytan,” a source tells Us Weekly. “He’s a chef, and he used to play for the Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Steelers. He’s tall, and she likes that Euro-type guy. He’s from Mexico. He’s a quiet type.”

“They were really into each other when they first met,” the insider added. “He was catering to her, and she got special treatment at the resort. He took special care of her when she was down there, and they really hit it off.”

“Radamez flew to be with her on the East Coast,” a pal tells Star. “They’ve been hitting up her favorite haunts.”

While Lu is taking things slow with her new beau, she is making some pretty big changes in her life. The Countess is renting out her Sag Harbor home this summer which means she is probably planning on traveling to see Radamez more.

“She’s telling friends he’s just what she needed,” the source notes while another source adds, “She’s taking him around to all her favorite spots in the Hamptons and New York. They wanted to wait until things were really open and they were vaccinated. She took him on a boat; they went to play tennis.”

The second source notes that Lu is completely “smitten and happy.”

The two were recently spotted locking lips and walking arm and arm in the Hamptons.

The Real Housewives of New York City airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
