'Real Housewives of New York' star Luann D'Agostino splits with husband
Posted August 3
Their relationship and wedding was a big storyline on "The Real Housewives of New York City," but Luann and Tom D'Agostino Jr. have decided to go their separate ways.
The reality star tweeted Thursday that she and her husband of seven months are divorcing.
"It's with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce," she tweeted. "We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!"
The couple married in a lavish ceremony held in Palm Beach, Florida on December 31.
There was a lot of drama leading up to the nuptials, including an accusation of infidelity on Tom's part by cast member Bethenny Frankel, and claims that he had previously dated two other cast members, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan.
D'Agostino denied dating Singer and Morgan, and his fiancee said the cheating speculation was rubbish.
"I am a hopeless romantic," she said on the episode which included some footage of her wedding." For me, Tom was like home. He was like finding home again."
After the news broke, Singer reached out to her castmate on Twitter.
"I am so sad for you ....," Singer tweeted.
Formerly Luann de Lesseps, she divorced French Count Alexandre de Lesseps with whom she shares two children in 2009. She surrendered her title as "Countess" upon her marriage to D'Agostino.
