Real Housewives of New York

Countess LuAnn & Boyfriend Jacques Are “On the Rocks” Following Cheating Scandal: Report

LuAnn de Lesseps insists she did not cheat on her boyfriend Jacques with a Johnny Depp pirate look-alike during Real Housewives of New York Season 5, Episode 13: “Pirate Booty Call” and that the couple is “still in love and happy.” But whether or not she “begged” Bravo not to show the land-loving matey Tomas coming back to the house with the girls, the incident did indeed air and did not look good for her. Now, a new report indicates that despite her public claims that the couple is doing just fine, she and Jacques may be on the rocks.

RadarOnline reports that Jacques is upset about what went down.

“Jacques is very, very upset with LuAnn. Jacques just doesn't understand why LuAnn would need to lie about the situation at all, unless she has something to hide,” a source tells RadarOnline. “Their relationship is very much on the rocks, despite what LuAnn is publicly saying.”

What she publicly said on her Bravo blog was that the incident was just the snowball effect of a little white lie.

“What may have looked like infidelity on last night's episode was in reality, a ride home with a friend and a tour of the house after an evening of fun on vacation eight months ago. Do you think I would bring a man back to a houseful of housewives (and cameras) if I were planning on having an affair?” she wrote. “My big mistake was trying to avoid the speculation and assumptions by telling a white lie. The problem with telling a white lie is that once you say it, you have to stick to your story, that's why I made the call when I heard that Tomas was coming for dinner that night. Never tell a fib because it can snowball out of control. LESSON LEARNED. As I write this, Jacques and I are on vacation and we couldn't be more united and happy!”

Her blog was posted on Tuesday, just after the show aired, but Radar’s report indicates that she and Jacques didn’t watch the show together, as they usually would. Ruh roh!

According to Radar’s source, "LuAnn is blaming the show producers for editing footage to make it look like she cheated on Jacques … LuAnn is steadfast in her denials to Jacques that she cheated on him. Jacques wants to view next week's episode now, but LuAnn is again stalling."

For what it’s worth, LuAnn’s former co-star Alex McCord thinks the whole thing was played up for the cameras.

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