Why Did LuAnn de Lesseps and Jacques Azoulay Split?

The RHONY star opens up about what came between them.

Last week came the shocking announcement that LuAnn de Lesseps had split from her boyfriend of four years, Jacques Azoulay. Now The Real Housewives of New York City star is revealing exactly why they broke up.

"We adore each other, but we want different things," LuAnn tells Life and Style. "Jacques wants to have a family. We were just hoping that it would happen in all these years we've been together.” At 48, LuAnn admitted on the show that her chances of conceiving were slim. "We talked about adoption, but I've spent 18 years raising kids, (Victoria, 18, and Noel, 16)—I want to do other things."

And although the duo are no longer romantically involved, the former model is hoping to keep in touch with her ex. "Jacques and I want to be friends," she says. "We do love each other, so I hope we can make a friendship work."
