Luann de Lesseps is embracing the single life after her divorce from Tom D’Agostino.
The Real Housewives of New York City star and her husband of less than a year finalized their divorce in October. Since then, Luann has kept a fairly low profile -- but she did step out for Daily Mail’s “Unwrap the Holidays” party in New York on Wednesday night, where she shared an update on her love life with ET.
“I'm not really dating,” she admits. “I'm taking time for myself. I'm enjoying my children and my girlfriends … I’m getting my life back. I'm getting, you know, I'm looking for an apartment in the city. So, I'm just trying to get back on my feet. So, I don't have time for boys right now, but that doesn't mean I'm dead.”
Luann was joined on the red carpet by her pal and co-star, Dorinda Medley, who adds that Luann’s eyes “aren’t closed” when it comes to finding her next mate. In fact, Dorinda called Luann out for checking out a guy on their way into the party!
“I saw a quick head turn as we we coming up the stairs,” Dorinda spills. “[She’s] still alive, gang! Still alive.”
Also at the party was the ladies’ castmate, Ramona Singer, who tells ET she’s offered nothing but support to Luann in the wake of her split.
“I never said, 'I told you so,’” she shares. “As soon as I heard the news, I reached out to her and I said, ‘I’m so sorry, my heart is breaking,’ because I know she really believed in that white picket fence, and the knight and shining armor, and I know she actually loved him, and it was sad. We all wanted it to work. When she took that plunge, and made that move, we were all hoping it would work.”
Ramona is also single herself, so Real Housewives of New York City fans can seemingly expect lots of dating action on the new season, currently in production.
“We're a discombobulated Housewives family,” Luann jokes. “At the same time, we are family, you know what we mean?”
“We actually really enjoy each other's company,” Dorinda says of filming. “I mean, it goes a little left sometimes … [but] we do have fun! We laugh so much.”
The Real Housewives of New York City returns to Bravo for season 10 next year.
