After Netflix premiered Pretend It’s a City in early 2021, fans were able to dig in more about Fran Lebowitz and what she particularly thought of New York City. But, what do we know about Lebowitz asides from what we watched in the documentary?
Fran Lebowitz Claims Being A Horrible Girlfriend
One of America's iconic and celebrated public speakers and authors, Fran Lebowitz has been opened about her sexuality since day one. The New Jersey-born and raised who later moved to New York in her teenage years, in fact, knew she was a lesbian since her pre-teen days.

An avid reader since her childhood, Lebowitz had questioned why she had to be one while also being sure that there were other lesbian women like her. But, now in her seventies, Lebowitz has never been married to anyone or romantically linked to someone popular to the public.
The author of Metropolitan Life had been in relationships before though. But, the romance could never be turned into something serious as marriage. Maybe it's because Lebowitz was a horrible girlfriend to her partners, as claimed by herself.
Most of her relationships didn't last for the long term too, except for one which lasted for three years. In her 2016 interview with Francesco Clemente, Lebowitz said,
"I could not possibly be in a relationship now for more than six days. When I was younger, I might have said six months, although I think the longest relationship I was ever in was three years. But what I can’t be is monogamous."
And nothing much has changed today either. Lebowitz, today, keeps her romantic life closer to her vest as much as she can.
