BRAND NEW ON E!
Real Housewives of New York's Countess LuAnn de Lesseps first marriage didn't end happily ever after, but that doesn't mean she's ruling out another walk down the aisle to her current French beau Jacques Azoulay.
"You never know," she told me this morning while prepping to shoot an episode of The Dish for the Style network. "Never say never!"
We never thought we'd hear LuAnn giving props to fellow Housewife Bethenny Frankel, who called her "a snake" this season, but she gave the new mom's spinoff series her stamp of approval and even defended her rapid post-baby slimdown...
"People were saying that she's not setting a good example by losing so weight so quickly, but everyone's different," LuAnn told me.
"She was breastfeeding and I think that really helps to bring your shape back. And she didn't gain much weight to begin with so she didn't have that much to lose...except for the baby itself!"
"She's just trying to get past it," she explained. "The Hamptons is highly policed and that's why we love it, because it's safe. But if you just slightly roll through a stop sign, they'll pull you over...I think she's used to New York and you don't have to drive in New York."
As for whether the Countess will be back for another season, she says she's open to it but hasn't been asked yet.
In the meantime, she's working on a second single called "Chic C'est La Vie" and hoping to eventually record an album.
And she already knows which artist she'd love to collaborate with...
"It'd be fun to do something with [Lady] Gaga," she said. "The Lady and the Countess!"
