Luann de Lesseps opened season ten of the Real Housewives of New York City talking about her divorce from her husband Tom. She is reflecting on love, life and marriage. de Lesseps also has some words for Carole Radziwill and Tinsley Mortimer, who she refers to as “mean girls.”
Regarding her divorce from Tom, Luann says says, “Marathons are a lot like life; we have to go through some pain in order to reach the finish line. The beginning of a relationship, like the start of a race, should be easy. This was not the case with my marriage to Tom. From the beginning, we struggled with our very different views of marriage.”
“I disagree with Tinsley and Carole (#meangirls), who say that since I shared my happiness with everyone, I am also required to spill my heart out about what happened. It’s my business, not theirs. I’m entitled to work through this situation however I choose, and the girls should be happy that I’ve decided to be optimistic! Like I’ve always said, “When one door closes, another opens.” I’m absolutely positive that I will emerge from this experience a happier, more focused person,” she writes in her blog.
She continues, “No one runs a race alone, and true friends don’t say, “I told you so” even though they can! Sonja is a true friend to me. She let me live with her when I was looking for an apartment, and she’s always been there in the good times and the bad. Loyal friends are priceless, and Sonja’s a gem. As for Dorinda, she was definitely stirring the pot when she told Tinsley what Sonja said. I don’t think Sonja’s personal conversation with Dorinda needed to be shared with Tinsley. Sometimes, it’s kinder to keep what you’ve heard to yourself.”
