When you’re an attractive countess living in NYC, there’s no time to waste getting back into the dating game. At least that’s the case for Real Housewives of New York’s LuAnn de Lesseps, who has already begun dating someone new after splitting from boyfriend of four years, Jacques Azoulay (aka French Ross Gellar) just three months ago.

So how did she meet her new love interest? The RHONY vet had a surprising matchmaker: Steve Harvey. LuAnn was on Steve’s daytime show recently, where the host introduced her to Sean Rooney, a software developer from Denver. And we know what you’re thinking — but that’s so far away! Apparently he travels to NYC on the regular.

Oh, and this Real Housewife clearly has a type. “He used to live in Paris, so he speaks French,” she shares. “He’s very charming!” Mais bien sûr!

We must note, these two have only been on one date thus far, though apparently they’re already planning date number two. And if things don’t work out with Sean, it probably won’t take LuAnn long to find another great suitor. This lady has serious dating game.

“If you expect more, you’re going to get more out of a man,” she says. “Set your standards high. Those are some good rules to follow.” She also recommends making that dreaded call instead of the cop-out text — “it’s always nice to hear someone’s voice” — and make sure he picks you up for the date. Noted!

What do you think of LuAnn moving on? Let us know below!
