Mets great Keith Hernandez was once a hit with a longtime “Real Housewives of New York City” star.

The former first baseman revealed he had a romance with reality star Luann de Lesseps for “a brief moment” before she married Count Alexandre de Lesseps in 1993.

“I chased her like a hound.”

Cohen then replied, “And you got her?”

“When they waved me home from third,” Hernandez said with a laugh.

Hernandez, 64, said it was more of a “friends with benefits” situation with de Lesseps than actual dating. He didn’t reveal exactly when their romance took place but confirmed it was “before she was a countess.”

De Lesseps, 52, was married to Alexandre — a French businessman — for 16 years until their divorce in 2009. She later married Thomas D’ Agostino Jr. in 2016 but they divorced the following year.

Meanwhile, Hernandez — who played 17 seasons in the MLB, including seven with the Mets — was married to his first wife, Sue from 1979 to 1983. He married his second wife Kai in 2005 but revealed in a 2015 New York Times profile that his second marriage was “kaput.”

Hernandez’s appearance on “Watch What Happens Live” came on the same day he went on the WFAN radio show “Boomer and Gio” and revealed he once spoke to Scott Boras, the agent for former Mets ace Matt Harvey, and shared his fears about the pitcher’s future.

“I called Scott, I said, ‘Scott, you gotta pull the reins on this guy, because he’s gonna make it tough on himself,'” Hernandez said. “He goes, ‘Keith, I can’t, he’s gonna do — he’s his own guy — he’s gonna do what he’s gonna do.'”

Harvey was traded to the Cincinnati Reds earlier this month.
