Tom D’Agostino Claims Luann de Lesseps Cheated First

Tom D’Agostino deserves a bushel of apples for the drama he’s delivered on Real Housewives of New York.  There was his whirlwind relationship and short-lived marriage to Luann de Lesseps. A marriage that ended just a hair over seven months in.

From the start, it seemed like a question of “when” it would be over rather than “if.”  Particularly after Bethenny Frankel told Luann about photos of Tom kissing another woman just weeks after they got engaged.  After the wedding, it seemed like there was a new story every week on Tom’s alleged shadiness. Then following news of their divorce, the internet went crazy and Tom was branded as a cheater, liar, and all-around bad guy.  Even so, Luann denied that infidelity played a role in their split.

Money can’t buy you class, but it can buy you a one-way ticket and a home in Beverly Hills. Is Real Housewives of New York OG Luann de Lesseps leaving the Big Apple behind for the west coast?

That’s what she claimed earlier today.

Tinsley Mortimer Questions Barbara Kavovit’s Exchange With Dorinda Medley On Her Blog; “Where Is The Loyalty?”

Tinsley Mortimer has a way of avoiding conflict simply by being overshadowed by the other women on Real Housewives of New YorkSonja Morgan was the only gal who had a real issue with her.  And that stemmed from the fact that she was hosting Tinsley in her home for many months.  Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley are the feuding ladies du jour.  Ramona Singer, Bethenny Frankel, and Barbara Kavovit are simply taking sides.

Anyone can see Tinsley is living her life in a suspended adolescence. So, maybe it doesn’t seem like a fair fight to involve her in anything.  But also, she doesn’t seek out conflict or show emotions in conflict situations.  Sure there’s the occasional screeching about frozen eggs, her dog Bambi, or a one Scott Kluth at the door, but does Tinsley have strong opinions about the group dynamics?  Why yes, actually.  Especially when it comes to defending Dorinda.

Dorinda Luann
Besides some missing lobsters, the main storyline on season 11 of Real Housewives of New York is the bad blood between Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley. It’s a shame they can’t drink and make up!  But they can’t, and Luann’s hard-fought sobriety is part of the problem. An emotional dumpster fire conflagration that began last season when Luann— between trips to rehab– threw shade on Dorinda for her drinking.
I never thought Sonja Morgan would be the voice of reason, but she spoke for all of us when she said Luann shouldn’t be advising Dorinda about her drinking. No good has come of it. Bethenny Frankel tried to settle the beef at a “gangster lunch” last episode, which ended in a truce. A truce as opposed to a heartfelt reconciliation because Dorinda refused to admit heckling Luann.

Luann de Lesseps - Real Housewives Of New York RHONY

Can you believe that the Real Housewives of New York are in their eleventh season? Four weeks in, and the ladies are not disappointing. It is always great to catch up for the first few weeks and see what everyone has been up to. From Bethenny Frankel’s grief over the loss of Dennis Shields to Luann de Lesseps’ legal woes and second stint in rehab, the New York ladies are doing what they arguably do better than any other franchise-keeping it real, dramatic-and funny.

And that sometimes painful realness is extending to the continuing drama between former BFF’s Luann and Dorinda Medley. An ugly falling out in Cartagena followed by some obnoxious heckling (Jovani, Jovani, Jovani!) by Dorinda at Luann’s cabaret show have left the two at odds. Now, however, Luann is sharing that she might have been a little hasty in her part in having Dorinda excluded from the clam bake at Barbara Kavovit’s home.

Real Housewives Of New York

Oh, I love Real Housewives Of New York! From Tinsley Mortimer slipping into Southern Sorority mode and using the word “hoebag,” to Dorinda Medley accusing Barbara Kavovit of drinking so much of Luann de Lesseps‘ unspiked Kool-Aid she has Type-2 Diabetes, to Ramona Singer getting lectured on being judgmental from the date from hell and just gulping her wine in response. This show is the pinnacle. Take note, Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills!

We left, and open on a cliff-hanger: will Dorinda and Luann make amends? Aided by Bethenny Frankel, at the Paper Magazine party, Luann saunters over. Clearly she’s expecting Dorinda to bow at her feet, cry, and vow to never utter the dreaded word “Jovani” again.

Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy’s Therapist Quit Due To Their “Level Of Conflict”

To say that Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel has had a rough time lately would be an understatement. Her on-and-off love Dennis Shields died from a suspected drug overdose in August of 2018. Fans of RHONY recently saw Bethenny confide in her co-stars that Dennis had proposed. He even gave her daughter, Bryn Hoppy, a ring before his untimely death. That is so sad!

Then came the health scares. Bethenny experienced a severe allergic reaction to fish, which landed her in the ICU. In fact, Bethenny’s new man, Paul Bernon, is credited with saving her life. She was also recently diagnosed with “leaky gut syndrome.”

RHONY-Bethenny-Frankel

Bethenny Frankel had a brief marriage to Jason Hoppy.  It spawned a spinoff, Bethenny Ever After, a daughter Bryn Hoppy and a bitter divorce that was finalized in 2016.   Their divorce proceedings lasted longer than the actual marriage.

During Bethenny’s time on Real Housewives of New York, viewers have seen how the ongoing bitterness with Jason has affected the Skinnygirl maven.  It never seems to end, since they share custody of now 8-year-old Bryn….and Bethenny is back in court requesting sole custody.
