Her newfound romance comes after she squashed rumors of hooking up with Bradley, 28, when they were spotted “all over each other” at the Dream Hotel in NYC following a taping of “Watch What Happens Live” in January, per Us Weekly.

“We definitely had great chemistry and we went out to have drinks. What’s wrong with that?” she told TMZ in February.

The former Bravolebrity added that Bradley was in a relationship with “Summer House” star Danielle Olivera at the time.

However, de Lesseps didn’t shy away from admitting she’d shoot her shot at Bradley in the event he called it quits from Olivera.

“Hell yeah! Are you kidding me? Well, I’m a little bit of a cougar, let’s put it that way,” she told the outlet.

Last month, Bradley also brushed off the flirty encounter during the Season 2 reunion of “Southern Hospitality.”

“This is the truth — me and Luann got a drink, and we hit it off,” he explained, admitting he was “probably was too flirtatious.”

“I did cross a line at the hotel, but I did not kiss her. We did not hook up,” the Bravo star insisted.

However, Bradley and Olivera pumped the breaks in their relationship around the time of his flirtatious “WWHL” interview, claiming they “moved a little too fast.”

“I just want to make sure we’re in the right place before I’m officially, like, ‘I’m your boyfriend, you’re my girlfriend.’ I don’t want to get hurt,” he told Us Weekly in January.

The former couple had been hanging since BravoCon 2023 in November after hooking up a month before.
