Luann de Lesseps Announces Divorce From Tom D’Agostino

It’s official! Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps has announced her divorce from her husband of seven months, Tom D’Agostino. The former Countess took to Twitter to share the news.

“It’s with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce,” she wrote. “We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!”

A source tells PEOPLE that it was Luann’s decision to end the marriage. “She is sad,” says the source, “but she was the one who made the decision to file.”

The source reveals that Luann is going on vacation and “finding comfort” with her grown children, Victoria and Noel.

“They had lots of issues and really tried to make it work, but it was just obvious they weren’t on the same page,” the insider said of the failed marriage.

One insider told the site that the couple’s issues stemmed from “trust issues” related to Tom’s previous infidelity and flirtatious personality that had been causing friction well before the wedding.

“There have been a lot of problems,” the source admitted. “She felt he was using her for her fame and he went from Ramona to Sonja to her. He’s a Housewife groupie.”

Are you surprised by the divorce?

I’ve been waiting for the divorce announcement since the day they got married. She was such an idiot to marry him. Anything for a storyline and to stay relevant I guess.

I will lay odds that no one is surprised here. Hands…? Anyone? Hands…???

No Bon Vivant not surprised but yet still disbelieving anybody could be this dumb in love.

The thing is, I never believed she was ever in love to begin with. That’s why I’m a little low on the sympathy meter : I think Lu’s a very cunning, worldly woman with a Teflon exterior and she’s going bounce back with no problem at all. Allow me to explain (lol) : With Lu I see a divorced socialite clinging by a doll’s hair to the last rung of European nobility for social relevance… in a land/social strata that doesn’t exactly recognize her title post-split. The woman’s either spent or invested/put away the money she’s made from the assets… Read more »
Although I find your comment a bit on the catty and pompous side, it is certainly entertaining, thorough and possibly very accurate. I would like to have seen some financial figures such as net worth of each party, but I suppose I could google it if I cared enough. I’m curious to know who financed the wedding and, if there was a prenuptial agreement, what, if any, is the ex-Countess likely to benefit from this brief, misguided misstep of a marriage. Otherwise, I couldn’t care less about these vapid jet-setters and their trials and tribulations. (I guess I’m contradicting myself… Read more »

yes there is a prenup. too bad. if luann could squeeze money out of this jerk then maybe it wold have been worth her while. she knew exactly what she was in for but went ahead anyways. a dog doesn’t change his spots and a dog he is.

Thank you for the back-handed compliment. I’m happy you were entertained.

Hands Bon , Hands. Was she that desperate ? she was a fool with so many red flags on one pole.

Only ones surprised is probably Lu. So sad, but she was warned over and over again…can’t feel sorry for that.

It is so sad that LuAnn did not listen to her friends well before the wedding even took place. To marry someone just to save face is no way to start a marriage. Tom appeared not to care for her at all by his actions, demeanor and flirtatious ways when around other women. I wish LuAnn the best.

No one is surprised at this. When Luanne made the comment that she would rather get a divorce than call of the wedding that spelled it out right there. I don’t know if this was a stunt put on by Bravo or if they both are just very stupid and immature. I used to really like Luanne but her decisions have made me look twice at what she is doing to herself. . All that money, all that time, and all the stress and finding out just a few days before their wedding that he was caught kissing an ex… Read more »

Nobody NObody can be this stupid right? Right????

Poor Countess Lulu, She wouldn’t listen to anyone and now she is looking like a dumba**. Sleeping with a man that has slept with one of your friends is gross but with two is just downright NASTY. I have a feeling the Countess is much smarter than the love struck teenager she appeared to be before the wedding and it would be very interesting dear ole Tom will have to pay for her broken heart.

I barley watched this show because it bored and I get that apparently she made a huge mistake . However, the ‘I told you so’ s are kinda icky . It’s still a divorce and she was obviously in love

bummer …

Love is blind. Sometimes dumb and deaf too.

The writing was on the wall even before the wedding.
She’ll be fine.

So now she’s not a countess (not that she ever was a real one) and she’s not a wife either….

C’est non bon…

On français on dit “ce n’est pas bon”

What did she EVER see in this thing anyway?? She’s better off getting a few cats.

No doubt. Kitties are cute and loveable

The WORST part of this is Ramona Singer was RIGHT!!! Arghhhh!!!
I hate when she is validated…it makes her even more insufferable, if that’s possible.

Hahahaha! sorry not sorry, not even for money.

Luann should have never dated someone her girlfriend was sleeping with. It just shows how horrible a friend she was. I think women who do that are disgusting.

ITA that is what bothered me from the whole Tom and I are soul mates over and over and i just got married rubbing it in Sonja’s face… on the yacht it was 100% obvious he was more into Sonja that LuLu ,who knows why he married her she is a master manipulator and pushy and has an high opinion of herself LuLu takes what she wants when she wants it and Girl code does Not apply to the likes of her. everyone else do as I say not as I do pure white trash who got lucky to marry… Read more »

What’s wrong with sleeping with somebody’s boyfriend ?

While I am a die hard fan of the NYC Housewives and after watching Luann’s behavior for many years prior – and her arrogant attitude towards the other girls last season and this season – First and foremost all the signs were there so shame on her. For me it was like a straight girl trying to make a gay man switch teams – just a matter of time when they are going back to what they really like.

If only she had listened to her friends. They had her best interests at heart. He is a player and never stops looking at other women. I hope she keeps the rings and donates the money to a beloved charity. I think she honestly thought she was in love. Luann is no dumb bunny she was only willing to give up the title unless she thought it was the real thing! Now she will miss her title because she used it to define herself personally, socially and psychologically. This season is toxic all ready. Bethany whom I liked before, has… Read more »

Swingers should never marry…it doesn’t end well
