RHONY Star LuAnn de Lesseps Responds After Ex-Husband Tom D'Agostino Jr Accuses Her of Cheating

Luann de Lesseps’ ex-husband, Tom D’Agostino Jr., is fighting back after being accused of cheating on The Real Housewives of New York City star.

Following a “Countess And Friends” show, during which LuAnn claimed Tom cheated on her during their short-lived marriage, Tom is reportedly telling his friends that while it was true that he cheated, he only did so because LuAnn cheated on him first. 

On April 1, Page Six revealed Tom has allegedly been mocking LuAnn by telling pals he “didn’t realize I was marrying a Walgreens,” referencing the amount of pills LuAnn supposedly had around the house.

LuAnn and Tom got married on New Year’s Eve 2017 and announced the end of their marriage just months later, in August 2018. Later that year, LuAnn was arrested in Palm Beach, FL for trespassing and accused of drunkenly kicking a cop and threatening to “kill” him.

After the arrest, LuAnn admitted in a blog that she was self-medicating with alcohol to cope with her split from Tom.

“I was arrested at the same hotel where I had a brunch that concluded our wedding weekend. Although I knew before I left NYC that I hadn’t processed my emotions about my divorce, I didn’t seek professional help,” she continued. “Instead, I was self-medicating to kill the pain…never a good idea! I hit a wall in Palm Beach, and the impact of my actions made me realize that I had better deal with my issues before I hurt someone or myself.”

LuAnn entered into a weeks-long rehab program after the arrest and returned to rehab in July of last year for additional treatment.

In response to Tom’s reported claims of infidelity, LuAnn said, “I wish [D’Agostino] well. I have moved on, and I hope he can do the same.”

The Real Housewives of New York City season 11 airs Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
