After sharing that he was "pressing the brakes" on his romance with Danielle Olivera because they moved "a little too fast," Joe Bradley headed to the Bravo Clubhouse where he ended up meeting none other than the Countess.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

In case you need a refresher, the Southern Hospitality VIP manager formed a bond with the Summer House-mate during BravoCon 2023 back in November, and after spending time together in their respective home cities, Joe told Us Weekly that he's looking to slow things down.

Shortly after he made those comments, Joe appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen alongside The Real Housewives of New York City alum, Luann De Lesseps. Get all the details on their interactions below.

Details on Luann De Lesseps and Joe Bradley's Meeting

To kick off the WWHL episode that aired on January 25, host Andy Cohen asked the cabaret performer if she had ever seen the Charleston resident before.

"We just met," she said while motioning towards Joe. She then revealed her first impression of him: "Charming, very charming. I love Southern boys because they're charming."

Joe showcased that charm by telling Luann that he wore alligator leather boots for her as a tribute to her time on Luann & Sonja: Welcome to Crappie Lake.

"I got the boots on for ya, [for] Crappie Lake," Joe said to Luann, who later called him "handsome" in an Instagram post

Luann De Lesseps's Dating Life

Since Luann and Joe shared a bit of a flirty exchange on WWHL, some viewers may be wondering if The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip alum is feeling single and ready to mingle. 

Andy asked Luann to share a "love life" update.

"You know, I'm dating. I love dating, I love having fun right now," she said. "I'm enjoying this part of my life, I must say, being single."

Though Luann is enjoying her time as a single lady, she's hoping to eventually find love — and potentially tie the knot for the third time. "I'm really happy being single, although I'm a hopeless romantic," she said. "And I would love to find love the third time around."

Does Luann De Lesseps talk to Tom D'Agostino?

As Luann referenced, she's been down the aisle two times before. Her first marriage, to Count Alexandre De Lesseps ended in 2009, and her whirlwind romance with Tom D'Agostino concluded after less than nine months of marriage in 2017. 

When asked when she last spoke to Tom, Luann responded, "Like, never."

Luann De Lesseps' Countess Cabaret Tour

When Luann's not helping a small town on Crappie Lake or spending time with her former RHONY castmates in St. Barth's for RHUGT, she's traveling for her tour, Countess Cabaret. "It's going all over the country, and you gotta see it!" Andy said about Luann's performance schedule on WWHL. 

Luann's show is heading to cities including New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, Modesto, San Francisco, Sacramento, and London, and to Long Island and Connecticut. 

"More dates coming soon!" she teased on Instagram back in December.
