'RHONY': Goodbye St. Barths
The dramatic trip ends on the Bravo series.
The St. Barths trip may be over on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City, but the reverberations of the trip are still hitting castmember LuAnn De Lesseps.

Reports of a breakup (or an impending one) between De Lesseps and wine importer boyfriend, Jacques Azoulay, have spread since she admittedly lied on-camera about bringing a local man back to the Housewives’ St. Barths rental house. And now the reality star wants to put the breakup rumors to rest.

“We are still very much together and have never been more happy,” De Lesseps, 47, tells Celebuzz.

In fact, the couple spent the past weekend together in The Hamptons working on their tennis game in preparation for their doubles match on Friday at the Match for the Cure at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn. The event benefits the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center and the Miracle Match Foundation.

De Lesseps provided Celebuzz with exclusive photos of the couple on the tennis court.

For her part, De Lesseps previously told Celebuzz of the St. Barths controversy that “what may have looked like infidelity… was in reality a ride home and a tour of the house after an evening of fun on vacation eight months ago.”

Knowing that it looked bad that she was caught on-camera trying to cover up the late night visit, The Countess also admitted, “My big mistake was trying to avoid the speculation and assumptions by telling a white lie.”
