Another ‘Real Housewives’ divorce is in the books, and some fans saw this one coming from miles away. LuAnn de Lesseps and Tom D’Agostino have decided to end their marriage after 7 months. See their statement.
LuAnn de Lesseps, 52, and Tom D’Agostino, 50, have decided to call it quits after just seven months of marriage. LuAnn announced that the pair have “agreed to divorce” in a tweet on August 2. “It’s with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce,” she wrote. “We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!” The Real Housewives of New York divorce comes on the heels of multiple reports, which claimed LuAnn and Tom’s marriage has been on the rocks for months. [See her tweet below].
While LuAnn and Tom have yet to reveal any insight into their split, the rumor mill is working overtime. Tom quickly got sick of the “reality TV lifestyle,” a source told Page Six about the split. “He used to live this really nice life in the city,” the source said, adding, “He’s a private person and all of a sudden he was living this crazy celebrity life… He loved the nurse from Connecticut, not the reality TV star.” LuAnn is a former nurse.
The site also reported that the pair have been fighting like crazy since they tied the knot in the beginning of the year. LuAnn and Tom even reportedly got into a physical confrontation in New York City, just one week before announcing their divorce. Reports claimed LuAnn aggressively slapped Tom inside a Manhattan restaurant. However, LuAnn denied the reports to Andy Cohen, 49, on Watch What Happens Live [August 2] calling it a “love tap.” Watch her address the situation below.

Days before LuAnn’s divorce announcement, a Page Six source also added: “There has been friction from the start… They got married so fast, they didn’t really know each other… She’s a drama queen.”
Fans, as well as LuAnn’s fellow New York Housewives were shocked that she even went through with her marriage to Tom in the first place. The print businessman actually dated RHONY veterans, Ramona Singer, 60, and Sonja Morgan, 53, before he sparked up a relationship with LuAnn. And, heads turned when LuAnn still went through with the marriage after Bethenny Frankel, 46, showed her photographs of Tom kissing another woman [believed to be his ex-girlfriend] at the Regency Hotel. In case you forgot, the photos were taken on the night before Tom and LuAnn’s engagement party in February 2016. The ordeal played out in front of the cameras on the Bravo show.
LuAnn and Tom began dating in late 2015. They married in Palm Beach during an exclusive, lavish ceremony on New Year’s Eve . This marks LuAnn’s second marriage.
