According to a new report, Bravo producers are annoyed with the timing of Luann de Lessepsâ€™ separation from Tom Dâ€™Agostino Jr. after seven months of stormy marriage. Why? Because she had just spent a grueling 10 hours taping three reunion shows set to air at the end of the current season.
â€œThey are going to have to re-shoot,â€ one source told Page Six. â€œOtherwise, the reunion shows will seem hopelessly out-of-date with Luann talking about how much she loves her husband and how they are working out their problems.â€
â€œThis is the time of the year when they are figuring out the next season,â€ the source continued. â€œGuess who will be the showâ€™s biggest housewife now that she is single again and back on the dating scene?â€
According to the site, D’Agostino felt used by the former Countess. â€œThere was real love there, and this was a real marriage,” he said.
One of his friends told the site, â€œHe got played. It was all orchestrated. Without Tom, they wouldnâ€™t have had a season, or the season before. And next season, it will be â€˜reinventing Luannâ€™ thanks to Tom. He should be getting a check.â€
â€œTom loves Luann and wanted to be married, but he was expecting a different life,â€ the friend continued. â€œHe wanted someone to share his life with and do things with. He didnâ€™t want to just be her escort to dinners and parties.â€
A representative for Luann said, â€œShe and Tom loved each other very much, and [the separation] has absolutely nothing to do with the show.â€
