Luann de Lesseps tied the knot with Tom D’Agostino last year on December 31 in Palm Beach and now, even without reaching the first anniversary, the Real Housewives of New York has announced for divorce.
The 52-year-old reality star tweeted Thursday she is revealing with great sadness Tom has agreed to split and both care for each other.
She also urged her fans and others to respect their privacy during the sad time.
A source said the co-stars of RHONY are surprised with Luann’s announcement, but they are not shocked as nothing was going right in their relationship after the marriage.
It is also learned friends of the reality TV star had been encouraging her in past to get out of the marriage.
Meanwhile, several RHONY cast members have come forward in support of Luann saying men come and go in life but friends are forever.
Co-star Dorinda Medley, who was the only cast member to attend the couple’s wedding, said it is sad when marriage does not work and she wish best for Luann and Tom.
Luann is cast member of Bravo’s RHONY since 2008 when the show first aired. In season 6 she was demoted for not living in the New York City during the time of shooting. Later, in April 2015 her return was confirmed for the seventh season.
In 2011 she also appeared as guest in the Bully episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. In 2009 Luann released a book titled Class with the Countess: How to Live with Elegance and Flair.
