Over the weekend Luann de Lesseps got engaged to Thomas D’Agostino Jr. with an 8 carat canary diamond ring. The Real Housewives of New York star met Thomas through their mutual friend Dorinda Medley, and after a whirlwind romance they fell madly in love.
Rumor has it Luann’s proposal was filmed for Real Housewives Of New York, and Thomas dropped down on one knee in front of the Housewives – which is hilarious considering he once dated Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan! He is, as Bethenny Frankel described him, “the new Harry Dubin.” Oh my…

“Ramona’s dated him, and Sonja used to be his friends with benefits, so they kind of gave a little intel recently,” Bethenny added while she was a guest on Andy Cohen’s radio show.
“Yes, I did date him, but we just didn’t have any chemistry,” Ramona confirmed. “I do think he’s a nice guy.”
Dorinda agrees that Luann and Thomas are a perfect match – although she hints that Ramona is suffering from sour grapes over Luann’s newfound love!
“I knew from the beginning that they had met each other’s match,” Dorinda declared. “I always thought they were practically mirrors of each other — very similar personalities, tastes, and definitely sense of humor.”
As she told Bravo’s Daily Dish, Dorinda thinks the wedding will take place in Palm Beach, where Thomas lives part of the year. However, since the couple already considers themselves “mentally and emotionally ‘wed,’ so to speak,” Dorinda doesn’t believe “there’s necessarily a rush” to tie the knot but they’ll get hitched “sooner than later.”
As for the details Dorinda predicts that because Luann and The Count eloped, Luann will go all out with “a truly magical” and “almost-fairy-tale classic, old world wedding.” Filmed by Bravo, of course! (My prediction).
Bethenny, who insists she’s happy for Luann and Thomas, couldn’t help but snark that Luann called Page Six immediately after Thomas popped the question. “I’m actually, I’m happy though,” she continued. “What’s funny is that you know how I can’t hide my feelings about things or opinions, and I feel happy. Like, I feel excited for her. She’s having a moment. It’s exciting.”
Bethenny snarking that Luann told the media? This from the woman who admitted to marrying for a television spinoff, has sold her personal life out at every turn, including peeing on camera to take a pregnancy test. Try again, Phony Frankel!
“[Luann] wasn’t that happy this summer, and I feel like, who knows?” Bethenny elaborated. “Like, if she’s happy… I had a good feeling, I don’t know about him or them or whatever…”
Bethenny also acknowledged she’s not exactly qualified to judge (and managed to plug her self-help book, of course), “I suck at relationships. I’m not one to talk about anybody’s relationship. I’m in the 12-year divorce.”
Luann isn’t letting the naysayers dampen her excitement. Instead she and Thomas are “celebrating jetting off for a ski vacation in Vail, Colorado,” says her rep.
