"Real Housewives" Countess' Dating Advice: Stop Blackberrying And Men Like Asian Women

COUNTESS Luann de Lesseps, the reality train wreck from Bravo's "Real Housewives of New York City," is still on the prowl - and this time she's trying to help other women score, too.

New Yorker Lilian Raji and a Korean female friend were at the St. Regis the other night having a drink. Raji was talking to a man while her pal surfed the gossip sites on her iPhone, when de Lesseps butted in.

According to Raji, de Lesseps turned to the duo and said, "I see you working so hard on your BlackBerry; you can't switch off. And I believe in empowering women, because I myself am a woman, so let me give you this advice. When men see females on their BlackBerrys working hard, it really turns them off.

"Men like women to be females," de Lesseps advised, "to not be like workaholics, as that comes off as being uptight in the bedroom and control freaks. "

As Raji recalls it, de Lesseps went on to tell her friend, "With you being Asian, you have an advantage. My European friends in particular adore Asian females because of their submissiveness. So work that to your advantage. At the same time, I can sympathize with you as a woman in New York City, but you have to do what you have to do to snag a man."
