"I should have been upfront," she admits, but says she and Jacques are going strong.

LuAnn de Lesseps and Jacques
There was gossip and speculation aplenty on last night's Real Housewives of New York City after LuAnn de Lesseps came home after a hard night of partying with a few French-speaking friends. And when Lu seemed to skirt the issue when questions were raised later, it only fueled the fire and got the ladies wondering if she and a handsome Johnny Depp doppleganger were more than just friends.

But that's all nonsense, LuAnn said in a statement on Tuesday morning to clarify things. "What may have looked like infidelity on last night’s episode was in reality, a ride home and a tour of the house after an evening of fun on vacation eight months ago," she said.

"I should have been upfront with the ladies since I had nothing to hide, but at the time I wanted to avoid their speculations and assumptions. LESSON LEARNED for me.  As I write this, Jacques and I are on vacation and we couldn’t be more united and happy!"

So, that's that -- all is well in Countess-land. Did you think anything happened with LuAnn and Captain Jack? Or are you team Jacques all the way? Comment below!
