Now that season 9 of RHONY is over and Luann de Lesseps has had sometime to think about her short-lived marriage. She is now opening up about the relationship and what was the last straw for her.
Her biggest problem was Tom “getting caught in the press going out and meeting with ex-girlfriends, that caused a lot of fights to go on,” Luann told PEOPLE.
Luann’s last straw was him constantly calling his exes.
“He ended up calling an ex-girlfriend to see where they were,” Luann explains. “And that’s when I said to myself, ‘This is the last straw. This is really the last straw.’”
Luann thanks Bravo and the show for helping her know what is actually going on.
“I started seeing things on the show, which I didn’t know he was saying. Like, ‘I’m a dog with a leash,’” de Lesseps says, referring to a comment D’Agostino made to ex Missy Tool. “All of these things were hurtful, on top of the continued going out and still making the same circle, which I said, ‘Please don’t do that, because it’s not a good look for you.’”
Luann maintains that Tom never actually cheated on her physically though.
“He assured me he wasn’t cheating on me, but that was not the perception of people around us,” Luann says. “We live under the spotlight, so you can’t act a certain way … you might be friends with your exes but it doesn’t look good. I believe he was not cheating on me. And I hope that was the case.”
