Luann de Lesseps Sets The Record Straight On If She Ever Dated Constantine Maroulis!

Luann de Lesseps is setting the record straight about the rumors that she, along with her Real Housewives of New York City co-stars Tinsley Mortimer and Ramona Singer, dated former American Idol contestant Constantine Maroulis.

"I didn’t date Constantine," de Lesseps said on SiriusXM’s The Michelle Collins Show, according to Entertainment Tonight. "Constantine has been in my cabaret show [Countess and Friends]. He is a great guy. Let's just say that we had, like, a flirt. I wouldn’t say I dated Constantine."

"I was showing the girls a picture of Constantine on the show and that’s when I discovered that he had dated Tinsley," she continued. "And I spoke to him and he said, ‘I didn’t date Ramona. We hung out, but I didn’t date Ramona.'"

The Bravo reality star added that as the rumors circulated, the singer texted her. "And he's like, 'What?!' Anyway, he's a great [guy.] I love Constantine. He's a great singer and he is sexy."

If you recall, during the latest episode of RHONY, Luann showed Ramona a photo of an American Idol contestant on her phone during a car ride in Mexico. After seeing the photo, Singer revealed she also went on a date with the Idol contestant.

"We share a lot of people, don’t we? I went out with him. I know him well. Been there, done that,” Ramona quipped, according to Us Weekly. “So has Tinsley!"

Despite having his photo blurred out and his name bleeped out from the episode, fans of the series ended up linking Maroulis to the ladies.

After the episode, Constantine said his phone was blowing up with calls and texts.

"Of course my phone started blowing up. I'm like, "What the f**k?"' he revealed on David Yontef's podcast, Behind the Velvet Rope. 'I guess I got a million calls about it. A couple of people sent me the video and I was like, "Oh yeah. Okay. Yeah, they're definitely talking about me!"'

"And yeah. So I didn't really know what was happening and sure enough ... I guess I got a million calls about it. A couple of people sent me the video and I was like, "Oh yeah. Okay. Yeah, they're definitely talking about me!"'

Maroulis then opened up about his past relationship with Mortimer and suggested that it was a genuine romance.

"Tinsley and I, like, legitimately went out many years ago during the height of Rock of Ages. I know a lot of people think it was, like, b****** for her TV show but we genuinely really care for each other and liked each other."

"I just think there was a lot going on for both of us. And I got to know her mom, got to know her sister very well - Dabney - and you know, I love her mom and they've supported me over the years on so many projects."

"Tinsley went through a lot and I was there for her, I'd like to think. People thought it was totally fake, it wasn't though, it was real."

Constantine shared that things between the two came to an end once she called him her boyfriend.

"She's gonna hate me for saying this, but once she started calling me her boyfriend, I was like, "What?" I don't like titles, is that terrible?"

As fr his relationship with Luann and Ramona, he explained that he and Luann "enjoyed each other's company" after realizing how much "chemistry" they had when he performed during her cabaret show.

"We enjoyed each other's company, you know, we would, if we were lucky to hang out here and there we would always have a good time together."

As for his connection with Singer, he said, "Ramona is amazing. Ramona I might've met before I met before Luanne, met before a lot of them," he said. "She's just a lot of fun and I don't drink or smoke anymore, not for a long time ... [but] we've had some drinks together and she's got a great body and she's got a great personality and she's got a great apartment."

"She's like really a New York soul and she's very youthful too. She's a lot of fun," he revealed. "People seem to have a lot to say about that, in particular, but she's great."
