If you see Luann de Lesseps this week and she’s struggling to lift her hand, cut her some slack.  The Real Housewives of New York star is now toting around 8 carats of sparkly bling on a certain finger!   After a whirlwind romance, Countess Luann de Lesseps is engaged to Thomas D’Agostino Jr

Thomas proposed this weekend and Luann happily accepted. 

People magazine first announced the engagement news and later this morning Luann confirmed it on Instagram. People’s source shared, “LuAnn is over the moon in love with Thomas and considers him her soulmate and is so happy and grateful to have found love a second time.”

Reportedly Tom was going to propose on Valentine’s Day during their ski trip to Colorado, but decided to do it early.  He proposed with an 8 carat canary yellow diamond.  You can see a close-up of it here.


Congrats to Lu and Tom!  It must be very serious since she’ll be giving up her title of Countess once she remarries and we know how much she loves her title. 

I have to admit to being a little skeptical anytime big news happens at the same time that filming for a new season is going on.  Do you think it’s the real deal? Or is it possible that it’s partly for a storyline on RHONY?  Do you think we’ll get another Real Housewives wedding? 

Those Housewives love a canary yellow engagement ring, don’t they?
