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?
In an interview with Extra, Ramona admitted, “I care about her very much.”
Ramona added, “No one likes to see a relationship end. Yes, us as girlfriends, we had our little thoughts about whether [this marriage] would be the best thing for her, but ultimately she was thrilled, she was happy, she wanted to make it work, so once that was decided by her we were all behind her 100 %.”
I wouldn’t go too far with that last part. To say that the whole group was “100% behind” Luann’s relationship is far from true, but they definitely calmed down with the hate once she walked down the aisle.
Awkwardly enough, Luann announced her separation from Tom after the cast shot the reunion episodes. Contrary to rumors that it will be reshot after that revelation, Ramona confirmed that is actually not the case since “life changes every day.”
Fair enough. These women were cast for a reality TV show because they (mostly) have exciting lives. So of course, there’s going to be some drama and major events in between filming. Plus it might even be a more entertaining reunion if Luann is staunchly defending Tom given what we all know now.
TELL US – SHOULD THEY SHOOT ADDITIONAL SCENES FOR THE REUNION BECAUSE OF THE DIVORCE ANNOUNCEMENT? DO RAMONA’S SENTIMENTS SEEM GENUINE?
