Tom D’Agostino Flirts With Ex and Removes Mic While Filming RHONY Finale

During the finale episode of RHONY season nine, we saw Luann de Lesseps’ marriage to Tom D’Agostino slipping away.

“I was on a mission to make this work and I did,” Luann confessed to viewers. “And guess what? We’re happy — I’m happy — and that’s all that matters.”

Watching the finale made it clear that the two were struggling to connect. They played tennis together in one scene and Luann all but admitted they were still getting acquainted with one another.

“Tom and I have known each other for a year and a half,” she explained. “So we’re still in our honeymoon phase.”

But the hardest thing to watch was Tom flirting with his ex-girlfriend Missy on-camera. Missy chatted with Tom and he was caught in a “hot mic” moment referring to himself as “a dog with a collar.”

“The last time I saw Missy …,” Tom was heard telling their mutual friend, while Missy encouraged him to tell the story. “I gotta unplug this thing,” he added, fumbling with this body microphone before turning it off. “De-mic!”

But Luann still insists she doesn’t believe Tom cheated on her. “I do not think Tom cheated on me, definitely not,” she told Page Six on Friday. “God knows he’s got himself in some trouble in the past, but I don’t believe that continued [while we were married].”

“It was impossible, we were having problems and we tried really hard to fix things, and we finally came to the conclusion it was just not going to work,” she continued. “It was a tough decision and we are both very sad about it. But the truth is we just weren’t getting along.”

But no matter what, Luann and Tom put on a brave face for the event in the episode. “It’s going to be fun because we can finally go to a party and not think everybody’s talking about Lu and Tom,” she told him on the finale. “I’ve gotten to a place where I feel like everybody’s really happy for us and settled with it. And it feels good.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    All I can say is Good Riddance Tom. It is time for Luann to move on to Dick (if she hasn’t already). I believe she’s already had Harry…Everyone did. Then again, everyone had Tom too! Who needs leftovers, anyway.

    “A dog with a collar” I always suspected LuAnn was into S&M, probably she learned from the her ex

    We all rightfully question why Luann married a serial womanizer. I am asking why Tom married her? He clearly didnt love her or want to be monogamous. Was it just to be on the show? For fame? I have to assume so. There is no other reason. She isnt that wealthy.

    Luann wanted three things from Tom 1) a storyline 2) a New York penthouse that she is too cheap to buy 3) She married a guy who slept with the women she was living with. Doomed from the start she looks like an old fool bragging two season about a marriage that lasted 7 months.
