Luann de Lesseps Talks Recent Divorce & Reveals “Last Straw”
Today, on The Wendy Williams Show Luann de Lesseps is opening up about her recent divorce from ex-husand Tom D’Agostino — and reveals the “last straw” that led to their split.
“When you love somebody, you have your blinders on,” she told Wendy on today’s episode, “You fall hard quick, and I’m a very strong person, as a lot of you know, I’m pretty resilient, and so I thought I could handle it until the point where I couldn’t handle it anymore,” she said. “We got engaged after three months and then we got married a year after, so I thought, plenty of time, because I got married two weeks after I met my first husband and it lasted 17 years, so I thought, you know this is how it works.”
She went on, “He’s 50 years old, he never asked anyone to marry him, so I thought I was different. I know he loved me. That’s not the issue and I know he went into it just like I did with a big heart and a lot of love. And then he just couldn’t give up his bachelor lifestyle. And that didn’t work for me.”
Luann explained the last straw in their marriage was, “a combination” of things. The housewife said, “just between the women, the press, him going out, me getting phone calls, pictures of him at the bars where he frequents all the time, which I asked him not to go to. It just kept happening and I got to a certain point where I got totally fed up. I couldn’t do it anymore — I just couldn’t do it anymore,” de Lesseps said she was “unhappy, and I think he was unhappy too.”
She spoke of the wedding saying, “it was a beautiful wedding. It was his birthday, it was gorgeous.” She pointed to photographs explaining, “I don’t take the pictures down. I’m not that kind of person. I don’t live in the past. It’s a part of my life ad that’s how I live. I live adventurously, I live with love and I’m not afraid to love either. I’m not afraid to take chances and live my life.”
When discussing a recent run-in with her ex-husband, she said they “said hello” calling it, “amicable.”
