She says that if Irene is after Lou’s money, she’s got no chance.

Later, Lou is quick to reassure Irene that Donna and he are separated and Donna is a very bitter woman. Lou begs Irene for forgiveness, leaving Irene unsure as to whether she should be pursuing this relationship with Lou any further.
