Luann de Lesseps ex-husband Tom D'Agostino

In today’s not so shocking news, Tom D’Agostino continues to be a dirty dog!

The latest is now a report claiming the soon to be ex-husband of Real Housewives of New York City star LuAnn de Lesseps is dating one of her former best friends!

According to Radar Online, things are heating up between Tom, 50, and Anna Rothschild, 52.

“Anna adores Tom and he’s been one of her best friends for 12 years,” an insider revealed to Radar. “She can’t believe he married Luann!” added the insider. “She hates her!”

So just how deep is Tom and Anna’s new relationship? Well the source says it’s nothing exclusive yet, stating that they are just in the “reconnecting” stage for now.

“She won’t answer if they’re dating,” the insider added. “She just says she adores him.”

Radar adds that Tom and Anna were first spotted together in the Hamptons over Labor Day weekend, and have continued to spend time together since. A picture of Anna with Luann is below.

Meanwhile, Bravo finally aired LuAnn’s highly toted one-on-one divorce special which some felt was a bit lackluster as LuAnn didn’t really dish any dirt reveal anything new. But perhaps the most surprising part of the interview was LuAnn stating she didn’t believe Tom cheated on her during their marriage… despite the countless reports of Tom being seen with a number of different women/exes.

“I totally believe he was faithful,” she said when asked by Andy Cohen if she thought Tom cheated during their marriage. “He’s a flirty guy, he’s a social guy, and I think people take that the wrong way sometimes. But it’s not a good look.”

LuAnn also revealed she believes Tom loved her and still loves her today.

“I think that he really loved me, I really do. And he still loves me,” she said to Andy. “At this age it’s very hard to change people and, you know, of course I said to him, ‘Don’t go to The Regency,’ and he was not going to change his lifestyle. I expected more, I expected it to change,” she added.

Andy asked if she saw any warning signs with Tom, her answer was a bit surprising.  “I didn’t see all these red flags,” she said about watching Tom’s “sneaky” behavior on RHONY. “It’s different in that perspective on the show … all things piled up.”

And when was the moment she realized their marriage was over? “It was like the week before the [‘Housewives’] reunion basically, and Tom went out and he called an old girlfriend and they met up with a group of people, and I didn’t know about it until I found out about it the next day in the press,” she revealed. “That for me was the final straw, I can’t do this anymore.”

I must she still appears to be in a bit of denial about Tom or perhaps this is her attempt to take the high road and not bash him. But with all of his reported outings with other women and constant humiliation of Luann due to his actions, it’s a bit hard to believe he really loved her or that he never strayed during their short 7-month marriage.
