After cameras caught footage of what looked like a tawdry evening, “Real Housewives of New York City” star Countess LuAnn de Lesseps later begged Bravo to cut out the video of the wild night at St. Barts from the show.

RadarOnline.com reports that the Countess-who is in a committed relationship-didn’t want any video of the “Johnny Depp look-alike pirate” departing her house in the wee hours of the morning to be aired.

“LuAnn begged Bravo execs to not air footage of the Captain Sparrow look alike leaving the vacation house in the very early morning hours,” a show’s source told the site. “LuAnn was absolutely beside herself at the prospect of the man leaving the house in the same clothes he was wearing the night before being seen on television, especially by her boyfriend, Jacques Azoulay.”

Bravo did make some concessions, according to the report, but declined to meet all of her demands.

“Bravo agreed to not air the footage of the walk of shame by her new friend that she made on the trip, but drew the line at any other requests LuAnn made in regards to the Johnny Depp twin,” the insider added.

On the show, De Lesseps allegedly banged on cast-mate Heather Thomson’s door at around 3 a.m. with a male companion. The next morning, she called her boyfriend told him she that had run actually run into some old Italian friends while at the nightclub. Thomson claimed that LuAnn only brought home one guy.

Later in the show, the Countess told an unnamed person on the phone to deny that the islander came home with her.

Still, de Lesseps maintains her innocence, writing on her Bravo blog that “What may have looked like infidelity on last night’s episode was in reality, a ride home with a friend and a tour of the house after an evening of fun on vacation eight months ago.”
