Another tough trip for the news cycle for Luann de Lesseps, even after she went off to rehab to recover from a not-so-good night in Florida a week ago.
The Countess — a Real Housewives mainstay who is now facing felony charges after attacking a police officer in Palm Beach County, Florida last week — has apparently REALLY angered her ex-husband, the European aristocrat Alexandre de Lesseps.
The French-born de Lesseps is a Count, of course, and that’s why everyone naturally calls Luann the Countess in reference to her former marriage to him… but now, according to Page Six, Luann might be in hot water for using the de Lesseps last name!!!!
A source says that Alexandre is “mortified and ashamed” at Luann’s recent behavior, and continues (below):
“He told her she is ruining the family name and should drop it if she’s continuing to act like this .├óΓé¼ΓÇ░.├óΓé¼ΓÇ░. He is watching from abroad and is totally embarrassed.”
Ooooof… Not a great look for the RHONY star.
No word yet on if she’ll actually change her last name — Luann’s maiden name is Nadeau — but it should be known that it doesn’t look like she can legally be forced to drop de Lesseps now that it’s her legal last name. (And yes, in case you’re wondering, she did officially go back to de Lesseps after marrying — and then divorcing — Tom D’Agostino.)
What do U think, Perezcious readers?!
