After months of drama, Luann de Lesseps, 52, and Tom D’Agostino, 50, have reached a divorce settlement. The Real Housewives of New York duo’s divorce became official on September 18, reports Blast.
The newly single countess’ marriage lasted only eight months. The former countess spoke to Andy Cohen about what triggered the final split, and revealed that she “didn’t see all these red flags” during the couple’s very public engagement.
“I had that moment of ‘Oh, my God,’ I had these blinders and all of a sudden they came off,” she said. “I thought, ‘This is not good.’”
As reported, Tom wasted no time moving on with Luann’s former friend, Anna Rothschild, who was evidently waiting in the wings. The publicist has allegedly snagged a giant sparkler from the career playboy.
The former couple wed on December 31 of 2016 and fans of the Bravo hit watched the couple’s whirlwind romance survive a public cheating scandal, exposed smack in the middle of the Bravo spotlight. Fans tirelessly chimed in, amping the social media dialogue about the controversial relationship. The former countess explained just how Tom’s behavior finally ended their fairy tale for good.
“It was the weekend before the reunion [aired] basically,” Luann says. “Tom went out and he called up an old girlfriend and they met up with a group of people. And I didn’t know about it — I found out about it the next day in the press.”
On August 3rd, Luann formally announced the split on Twitter, but denied that she believed Tom had been unfaithful.
“I do not think cheated on me, definitely not,” Luann told Page Six, at the time. “God knows he’s got himself in some trouble in the past, but I don’t believe that continued [while we were married].”
Reportedly, Luann’s seedy ex proposed to the newest lady in his life — Anna Rothschild — and she’s flaunting a massive canary yellow rock!
