Failed Reality TV Romances
Alexandre & LuAnn de Lesseps
In 2010, the Real Housewives of New York City star's husband left her for an Ethiopian princess, reportedly breaking the news of his affair to her via email. As angry as she was, LuAnn -- mom to two children with her ex -- opted not to air her family's dirty laundry on the Bravo series. "There is such a thing as discretion, and even on Housewives, you can have discretion and only show the part of yourself that you want people to see," she told Fox News.
