Dating a countess show
Super, who also reps comedians including Artie Lange, has been representing de Lesseps for several months, since she began her booming career as a cabaret star in “The Countess and Friends.” Pals of the “Real Housewives of New York” star — who is herself coming off a divorce from Tom D’Agostino — say that although they’ve only been dating a few weeks, the couple are very close already.
“He’s smitten with her,” said a pal, “and she’s very excited about it.” Said another, “It’s very, very new [but they’re] exploring it.” Last week, the star told us that she’s dating someone new, but wouldn’t say whom.
Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.

Since marrying Prince Edward, Sophie has managed to perform her royal duties while still keeping her private life separate, Judi explained.
She told uk: “When Sophie married Edward she was hailed as the new Diana, but what followed looked like a masterclass in hunkering in as the soap-opera-free royal bride who managed to be a stabilising influence on her husband while keeping press and royal fan attention to a minimum.“Sophie is also said to be a close ally of her mother-in-law the Queen and in terms of her body language she tends to blend some of the signals of the kind of laid-back calm and fun that we get from Zara with the stoic, deft formality of the Queen herself.”These personality traits could have been why she was the perfect person to help Kate when she first married into the family.“This attitude must have made her the perfect royal wife to welcome and induct Kate into the Royal Family, especially in the face of William’s horror of bringing Kate into the same circus that he watched his mother suffer,” Judi explained.“Sophie’s formula does appear to have been copied by Kate too as – so far – she has managed to tread the very fine line of creating interest that is positive but not unmanageable.”Kate appears to have taken tips from Sophie and the Countess has looked out for Kate in a maternal way.
Sophie, Countess of Wessex, became a royal when she married Prince Edward on 19 June 1999.
Sources tell Page Six that de Lesseps and Hollywood agent Rich Super, who we’re told has recently filed for divorce from his wife, have been dating “for a few weeks” but that things are already getting serious.
The couple split in April 2007, however, in October they were back together.
