LuAnn de Lesseps is talking about forgiveness in her blog this week and sharing with viewers how she was able to forgive her fiancÃ© Tom for kissing another woman in public. She insists that Tom is a good man and explains how she got through this painful time.
“If you canâ€™t forgive someone you love, then who can you forgive? I was very hurt when Bethenny shared with me, after showing the other girls, the photo of Tom at the Regency. It took me some time to pull myself together after the initial shock. My gut reaction was to think about how this looked to my friends and family, and it wasnâ€™t until I had time to think that I began to understand what I was feeling. We all make mistakes, and some we make in private and others we make for the world to see. After I found out about what Tom had done, I had to dig deep within myself to find the love to forgive, but I did. I forgave him shortly after reuniting back in New York. Was it easy? No way. Am I glad I did? Absolutely. We are still engaged and are finalizing our New Yearâ€™s Eve wedding plans. Heâ€™s a good man and we love each other. We will stand the test of time regardless of what those women try to do to ruin our happiness.
As this season draws to a close, I want you all to know how much I appreciate the love and support youâ€™ve shown me through the years on this show. Iâ€™m optimistic about my future, and I know that regardless of what happens in life, Tom and I will always love each other. So if you take anything away from this season, itâ€™s not the problems that arise in our relationships, itâ€™s how we deal with them when they arise that defines us. So love without fear and forgive without regrets.”
