The Real Housewives of New York City resident Countess recently called off her four-year relationship with boyfriend Jacques Azoulay and is struggling with being single.
At the time of the split, LuAnn's rep told The Dish, "They are at different points in their life now and have mutually agreed it's best. LuAnn is upset, but it's amicable and they remain friends. Jacques has been a wonderful part of her life." Now, LuAnn tells Radar Online she's rediscovered that “It’s so hard to find someone of great quality."
Still, LuAnn, who shares two children with her ex-husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps, refuses to let go of her high standards, telling the site, "I’ve been very lucky to have quality people in my life who are sophisticated, who speak languages, who know how to order wine, who are gentlemen, who are great men, so I know that they exist."
LuAnn previously revealed that Jacques, who is ten years her junior, wanted children and that is what ultimately came between the two. "With my daughter going to college and my son just turned 17, I realized that I’m not ready to start over again," she says now.
It also seems as if LuAnn's days of dating younger men may be behind her: “I hope I’ll go on to meet the right person for me, who already has a family, who is already kind of ‘been there and done that’ and [is] maybe a little bit more age appropriate," she says.
“It’s hard and I like being in a relationship," she adds. "I hope Prince Charming is going to come in and sweep me up!" says a still hopeful LuAnn.
