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.”
