According to a new report, Bravo producers are annoyed with the timing of Luann de Lesseps’ separation from Tom D’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.
“They are going to have to re-shoot,” one source told Page Six. “Otherwise, the reunion shows will seem hopelessly out-of-date with Luann talking about how much she loves her husband and how they are working out their problems.”
“This is the time of the year when they are figuring out the next season,” the source continued. “Guess who will be the show’s biggest housewife now that she is single again and back on the dating scene?”
According to the site, D’Agostino felt used by the former Countess. “There was real love there, and this was a real marriage,” he said.
One of his friends told the site, “He got played. It was all orchestrated. Without Tom, they wouldn’t have had a season, or the season before. And next season, it will be ‘reinventing Luann’ thanks to Tom. He should be getting a check.”
“Tom loves Luann and wanted to be married, but he was expecting a different life,” the friend continued. “He wanted someone to share his life with and do things with. He didn’t want to just be her escort to dinners and parties.”
A representative for Luann said, “She and Tom loved each other very much, and [the separation] has absolutely nothing to do with the show.”
