Diane von Furstenberg just got real about her fling with Richard Gere!

In a new episode of Watch What Happens Live that aired on Thursday, von Furstenberg, 72, sat down with host Andy Cohen to play a game called “DVF or WTF?” During the game, an announcer read facts about the legendary designer, while Cohen and fellow guest Julianne Moore had to guess if the statements were true or false.

“Back in the day, DVF had a brief love affair with Richard Gere,” the first fact read.

Cohen guessed the statement was true, while Moore said it was false, saying, “I’m going to go with ‘What the f—?’ ”

Von Furstenberg cheekily responded, “Well, it was a f—,” to huge cheers and laughs from the audience.

Among the other facts revealed about the designer were that she always keeps herring stocked in her fridge and that she can swim for two hours straight.RELATED VIDEO: Richard Gere Marries Spanish Girlfriend Alejandra Silva: ‘They’re Extraordinarily Happy’
