(Newser) – Will real housewife of New York City LuAnn de Lesseps remain a countess and a housewife? It seemed so yesterday, when a source told the New York Post her French aristocrat hubby was looking to get back into her good graces after splitting with his Ethiopian princess girlfriend. But not so, says Count Alex de Lesseps: “I am not trying to get back with the countess in any way, as your spies suggested.”

“We will remain friends and take care of our children,” he continues, adding that his separation with the princess was also amicable: “We will remain friends, just as our children will.”
