Ever since Luann de Lessepsfirst started dating Tom D’Agostino, it has always been about Tom. In all honesty, Tom should have been holding up an apple during the Real Housewives of New York opening credits. He has provided more content for this show than some of the actual cast members.
Even though the former countess announced her breakup with Tom after the last season wrapped up filming, I’m sure that there will be plenty of Tom talk in Season 10 as well. For the most part, it has seemed like a pretty peaceful breakup between Tom and Luann, but there is still plenty of gossip floating around.
Andy pops by Luann‘s place in Sag Harbor after she returned from Switzerland – the place she fled to after the announcement of her split from Tom after just seven months of marriage. She says that she and Tom are in touch and they’re being grown ups about the divorce. She admits, “it’s been tough, it’s been really, really tough.”
If it wasn’t for Dorinda Medley (and those three Mexico episodes) the last Real Housewives of New York season would have been a complete snooze fest. She blessed us all with some iconic one-liners and some on point commentary about the other ladies. So many Housewives brag that they “tell it like it is” to a point where it is almost laughable, but Dorinda truly does.
Dorinda has found a way to be on good terms with everyone in the cast (without being boring) so of course she has the scoop and opinion on just about everything that’s going on and that includes their love lives.
It really shouldn’t be a headline that Tom D’Agostino is seeing a few women since he was doing this before he dated Luann de Lesseps and while he was still with her, but apparently Tom is back on the market (not that he was ever truly off). Hopefully he is staying away from Real Housewives of New York cast members this time.
Not only is Tom back on the prowl, but there are also rumors that he’s been hanging with Missy Tool again- his former flame that Ramona Singer insisted on inviting to every event possible this past season.
The night starts out with lots of sex. Well, at least talking about it – which these ladies love to do. Tape rolls on the innuendos, accusations, and droll dinner conversation that uncovered more than we want to know about everyone’s sexcapades. Andy wonders if this is the most oversexed or undersexed group he’s ever seen? While some regret their words, like Tinsley, who admitted she went too far in discussing her sex life with ex-husband, Topper, Sonja doesn’t regret a thing. But does Sonja like the back door more than the front door? She opens any door! As long as it’s not Tinsley’s hat delivery guy on the other side of it.
After two seasons of defending Tom D’Agostino’sshady tactics, Luann de Lesseps finally announced that the couple is divorcing… after a mere seven months of marriage. As sad as that is for her- everyone who watches Real Housewives of New Yorkknows how much she reveled in being a newlywed- it’s also pretty disappointing for the viewers because the announcement came right after the reunion was taped.
That means that the viewers have to sit through three one-hour episodes of Lu going to bat for Tom even though we all know better. Luckily Luann will be doing a one-on-one interview with Andy Cohen to address the divorce since most of the information “revealed” at the reunion has become outdated and irrelevant.
Get yourselves adjusted and comfortable, because it’s time to rehash the drama from last night’s Real Housewives Of New York Reunion, part two. Bethenny Frankel breaks down over the custody hell she went through this year. Carole Radziwill and Tinsley Mortimer are actually permitted to speak (whoa!), and Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer – well, they continue to be the national treasures they are. And I can’t help wishing these two would totally change, yet not change at all. The same goes for the entire cast, when it comes down to it. Their brand of crazy just…works.
