Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is finally opening up about her break up from her boyfriend of 4 1/2 years, Jacques, who we’ve seen featured on The Real Housewives of New York. In a new interview with RadarOnline, the Countess reveals she is having a hard time being single again, and also reveals what led the couple to split. Jacques, who is ten years younger than LuAnn, wanted to have children and LuAnn didn’t.
â€œThere was a lot of frustration on both ends in that I know that Jacques would love to have a family,â€ LuAnn tells Radar.Â â€œAnd at this point in my life, with my daughter going to college and my son just turned 17, I realized that Iâ€™m not ready to start over again. So we decided to mutually separate.â€
â€œWeâ€™re friends and we do speak,â€ she says. â€œWeâ€™re just on different paths and at different points in our lives and we want different things. And so, as tough as it is, weâ€™re both very supportive of each other still.â€
â€œItâ€™s hard and I like being in a relationship, so I hope Prince Charming is going to come in and sweep me up! Maybe I have to do a new show like The Bachelor or The Bachelorette to find him,” she shares.Â â€œI hope Iâ€™ll go on to meet the right person for me, who already has a family, who is already kind of â€˜been there and done thatâ€™ and [is] maybe a little bit more age appropriate.Â Not that Jacques isnâ€™t, but having somebody a little older might be good for me.â€
â€œItâ€™s so hard to find someone of great quality,â€ she admits. â€œIâ€™ve been very lucky to have quality people in my life who are sophisticated, who speak languages, who know how to order wine, who are gentlemen, who are great men, so I know that they exist.”
As for rumors LuAnn will reconcile with her ex-husband, Count Alexandre, she says they areÂ Â â€œgood friends,â€ adding: â€œWeâ€™ve always had a great relationship after our marriage, and weâ€™re the parents to these two beautiful, wonderful kids.â€
