“I was persuaded into buying the ‘candy fairy dress’ after a rather long, boozy lunch on a weekend trip to Miami,” the former reality star wrote on NeverLikedItAnyway.com. The Web site’s gimmick is to allow the broken-hearted to share their tales of woe and sell off reminders of their exes: Engagement rings, wedding gowns and other symbols of love gone wrong.
Ommanney’s lace-and-ribbon confection with a revealing front and short skirt (more honeymoon night than trip to the altar) was selected by Charles, she said, shortly before they wed in 2008.
Never liked it anyway, huh? “ I liked it after a couple glasses of wine,” she told us Thursday from London. “All my girlfriends were like, ‘What the hell were you thinking?’ ”
Ommanney said she picked the Washington Humane Society as beneficiary, since it found a new home for two beloved black labs she had to give away. The dress originally sold for $1,800; bidding started last week at $1,000 and ends July 1.
How does her ex feel about it? No clue — she hasn’t talked to him for years.
Though the D.C. “Housewives” was canceled after a single season, Ommanney, currently living in Spain, hasn’t given up on reality TV: She’s working on two TV shows, she said, and a sequel to her self-published memoir, “Inbox Full.”
