In 2016, Tom D’Agostino was engaged to Real Housewives of New York City star Luann de Lesseps. Then Bethenny Frankel received a text from a friend. It included a photo of Tom playing tonsil hockey with another woman. At The Regency! Bethenny told Luann, but Luann married Tom anyway.
Now Carole Radziwill, Bethenny’s former bestie, has alleged that Michael Cohen was the man who took the infamous photo. “In walks Michael Cohen, who is [Donald] Trump’s lawyer. I’m like, ‘Oh my god, f–ing Michael Cohen is at dinner,'” Carole said.
“We started talking about Tom and the wedding. He goes, ‘Of course, I know Tom, who do you think took the picture?’ I was like, ‘Wait, what did you say?’ and he says, ‘Who do you think took the picture at The Regency?'” Carole alleged that Michael sent the photo to Bethenny’s boyfriend at the time, Dennis Shields.
Bethenny begs to differ
The Messenger reported that Bethenny sounded off on Carole’s remarks via TikTok. “No, Michael Cohen did not take the photo at The Regency of Tom. The woman who did take the photo at The Regency is texting me right now on this very phone. Just sent me our original text and the photo,” Bethenny stated.
“Underneath the photo, it said, ‘Maybe you should make new New Year’s Eve plans,’ which I don’t even know what that means,” she said. “Maybe you’ll remember.”
You may recall that Luann and Tom tied the know on New Year’s Eve. “I wasn’t invited so that was snark,” Bethenny said.
As for her nemesis, Carole? “It’s dangerous to listen to just anybody spew their mouth off about something they know nothing about,” Bethenny stated. Carole and Bethenny’s friendship imploded during Season 10. It was a trainwreck.
Meanwhile, the Real Housewives of New York City continues- without Bethenny- on Sundays at 9/8c on Bravo.
