Well, that didn’t take long (and no one was surprised) at the announcement today of the agreement between Luann (Formerly-Countess Luann) de Lesepps and Tom D’Agostino. After only seven months of marriage, Luann tweeted “It’s with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce. We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!”
During the ninth season of HONYC, co-stars were hearing rumors of D’Agostino’s indiscretions and on one episode Bethenny Frankel divulged an email confirming a very public hour long kissing scene between D’Agostino and another woman at a bar that he and de Lesepps had just visited earlier the same day. De Lesepps, despite this revealing and other rumors, chose to trust and marry Agostino. “Luann is just in love with being married,” Bethany Frankel said in an interview on HONYC before the wedding last New Year’s Eve.
The announcement of a divorce comes just weeks after cracks in the façade appeared during a very public spat at a French restaurant in New York City where Luann was said to have slapped Tom according to Page Six.
The marriage was the first for D’Agostino, 50, and the second for De Lesseps, who was married to French Count Alexandre de Lesseps for sixteen years before divorcing in 2009. They have two adult children together.
Despite their warnings, all the co-stars of “Real Housewives” are showing their support and love for Luann de Lesepps.
