Every cast member on Real Housewives of New York (and even a lot of the viewers) warned Luann de Lesseps about Tom D’Agostino, so it’s not at all “shocking” that they announced their intent to divorce. Still, it is always sad to see a relationship end, especially when Luann had so much pride in being Mrs. D’Agostino. I mean she even dropped her beloved countess title for this guy.
One of the people who was very against this relationship was Ramona Singer – one of the many women in the tri-state who has “dated” Tom in some capacity. To put it nicely, Ramona doesn’t have the most social grace, so is she going to gloat and throw an “I told you so” at Luann or does she have some compassion for her costar?
Please tell me the finale is not about Tom! It’s about Tom. And what a bittersweet ending The Real Housewives Of New York is giving us this season. Not even twenty-four hours after the ladies’ awesomely insane Mexico trip aired, Luann de Lesseps (yes, we’re back to the old name) announced she’d filed for divorce from Tom D’Agostino, who she’s spent the last eighteen episodes defending as the man who would make all of her dreams come true. In the end, poor Luann traded Countess for Wife, and all she had to show for it was Eggs a la Francaise on her face. But I’m here for single Lu ALL day, EVERY day. So perhaps, eighty-sixing Tom right smack on the heels of Luann totally rocking that Mexico vaycay is perfect timing after all. And given Tom’s (unsurprising) shady behavior last night, Luann’s move to kick his sorry, lying, cheating, de-mic’d a$$ to the curb deserves an extra champagne toast. Hurrah!!!
Despite their misgivings about Tom – and in some cases, their personal dating histories with him – Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, and Dorinda Medley reached out on social media and news outlets to offer empathy and support. Their statements, much like their TV personalities, varied widely.
Much like the best house party you ever attended freshmen year, last night’s Real Housewives Of New York came replete with drunken makeout sessions, naked crying in the pool, and knifings. Yes – it was epic. And I may be fangirling out so hard that I have blinders on, but I’ll say it again: This Mexico trip is serving up some of the best Housewives moments in recent memory. It’s a rare gift, and we totally deserve it after suffering through the Tom and Luann D’Agostino [de Lesseps] wedding snooze fest for eight straight episodes!
We pick up with Sonja Morgan “therapizing” Ramona Singer by the pool. She wants Ramona to admit she’s not happy. Why? Because she’s not getting banged by Mario every nightbut some other chick is. Fresh off her 10 minute month sobriety, Sonja is feeling loose on tequila and truth. Bethenny Frankel thinks Sonja needs to back the eff off though, shockingly defending Ramona against Sonja’s drunken tirade. Ramona screams that she’s happy, but admits she misses having a man.
Jill Zarin‘s annual luncheon in the Hamptons drew in a slew of Bravolebrities, including Real Housewives of New York cast members, both past and present. Some of her guests included Tinsley Mortimer, Ramona Singer, Cindy Barshop, Kelly Bensimon, Luann D’Agostino and more. Even former Real Housewives of Miami stars Adriana de Moura and Marysol Patton were photographed hanging out.
Also happening this week: Dorinda Medley threw a birthday party for John Mahdessian at Sushi Roxx – with a few of her co-stars stopping by for the event.
Chloe Lukasiak and her mom, Christi, are out doing promotion for the new season of Dance Moms. Check out these photos and more down below in the gallery!
Luann wasn’t any worse for the wear when she woke up the morning after her falls. She jokes, “It takes more than a little hangover to stop me from working out on a beautiful Mexican morning! In fact, yoga with Dorinda [Medley] was just what the doctor ordered after falling into a bush… and emerging without a scratch! When Bethenny offered a surfing lesson to us, I figured, why not? I’m always up for anything, and I felt so much better after being in the ocean. They say Vitamin Sea is the best medicine, and I agree. Sometimes you just have to surf it off.”
