I guess my copy of Class With The Countess is missing the chapter saying it’s okay to bump uparts with a dude before his divorce is finalized. Ex-Countess LuAnn de Lesseps has bounced from Count Chocula (isn’t that how she got her title?) to a series of fellas, including one she was married to for just enough time to give her a central plotline on this season’s Real Housewives Of New York City. Now she’s rubbing up on a new fella, but – shocking – he isn’t exactly done with his marriage.
Page Six says Lu has been stepping out with her agent, Rich Super, for the last few weeks and that they’re already pretty serious. Rich is apparently still married, but like all middle-aged dudes who are looking to stick it into something new, he’s fanning out the argument that he just filed for divorce from his wife.
Rich reps a lot of comedians, including Artie Lange, but the article says he started representing Lu after she began her “booming career as a cabaret star in ‘The Countess and Friends.’” AHAHAHA! Oh, man. Booming career as a cabaret star. I guess one of Rich’s comedians was a ghostwriter on that story.
Sources close to Lu gave such salacious tidbits like “he’s smitten with her” and “she’s very excited about it.” Lu has previously hinted she was seeing someone new but wouldn’t cough up who the new piece was, which is kind of cute. They can enjoy five minutes of the honeymoon phase before she’s contractually obligated to bring him along to a dinner party with Ramona Singer and the rest of the Manhattan banshees, one of them makes up a friendship with Rich’s wife, and the whole thing goes up in smoke!
Lu’s really just bringing on the bad press this week since TMZ says she’s also getting sued by her kids and Count Chocula (actually called Alexandre de Lesseps). As part of their divorce arrangement, Lu was supposed to create a trust for half of her $3.1 million Sag Harbor house in the kids’ (Noel and Victoria) names. Now Lu is trying to sell the house for something upstate (because those broads really need another Berkshires venue to screech in), meaning Noel and Victoria would be out of whatever cash Lu makes from the house sale. Swindling your kids and suing your mother is straight out of Dynasty, so I really hope next season of RHONY brings the shoulder pads and slap fights. Well, more than it already does. Things must not totally be awful since Lu did Instagram this the other week, chumming it up with Alexandre at the house she’s robbing her children of:
