Luann de Lesseps On Marriage: “We Were Unhappy”

RHONY star Luann de Lesseps is finally telling everything there is to know about her short lived 7-month marriage to Tom D’Agostino.

“Things turned out very different to how I imagined,” after a “honeymoon period of about five months,”Luann admitted.

The majority of there problems started when Tom was caught kissing an ex-girlfriend. “That caused a lot of fights,” Luann told PEOPLE.

Even though Tom did apologize, Luann says, “There’s only so many times you can take it.” Luann still believes that Tom didn’t cheat on her contrary to the proof . “I was really unhappy. He was unhappy. We were just spent.”

Finally, in August after 7-months of marriage Luann realized she wasn’t going to be able to change Tom.

“You can’t change people,” Luann said. “I really thought he would change because I was the one for him. I really trusted my heart and my instinct, and I loved him. He had all these years to marry somebody and he didn’t, so I thought if he wants to marry me at 50 years old, this man really loves me. I knew he loved me.”

    The reason that relationship lasted more than a minute is that LuAnn would rather make excuses for the guy than admit she was wrong.

    Poor delusional Luann. For a 50 year old, a confirmed bachelor, plus a womanizer, to want to be married, spelled trouble. He would not change. The world & her friends saw this, but Luann felt she was going to be enough for Tom.

    Any divorce is sad. Sorry it couldn’t work. I hope she has learned a valuable lesson.
