RHONY star LuAnn de Lesseps is revealing that she fought and split with her fiancÃ© Tom D’Agostino before he got drunk and made out with an ex-girlfriend, a secret which Bethenny Frankel revealed to her while the show was filming.
â€œI felt like someone ripped my heart out of my chest,â€ de Lesseps, told People of when Bethenny showed her the photos. â€œI was devastated. I had my heart broken on television.â€
LuAnn revealed why she chose to forgive Tom, despite his betrayal. â€œIâ€™m not going to let a stupid kiss ruin the rest of my life,â€ she explained of the night they had a fight and parted ways. â€œHe screwed up. What he did was wrong. But this wasnâ€™t premeditated. It wasnâ€™t an affair. It was a mistake. He was upset with me. It was a stupid retaliation of some sort. He did the wrong thing, and he totally recognizes that. I know in my heart of hearts that he loves me.â€
â€œObviously, if it happens again, I would have a serious problem with that,â€ she said. â€œFool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.â€
Tom also spoke about his indiscretion. â€œIf I could take it back, I would,â€ he said. â€œI deeply regret the mistakes Iâ€™ve made, and most of all hate the way it hurt Luann.â€
