The lovely Dorinda Medley has played matchmaker to Luann and Tom therefore she feels it’s her duty to defend him. Tom D’Agostino has been accused of being fame hungry along with relying on wealthy women to help pay for his lavish lifestyle and extending his 15 minutes of fame. We saw Tom hit on Ramona and friend in season one, and he has gone through 3 of the NY housewives so it’s easy to see where these accusations are coming from. Luckily, Luann has Dorinda in her corner to defend their relationship.
When asked if Tom was just looking for fame, Dorinda had his back stating:
“No, I don’t. I don’t think so. I think Tom is one of these guys who has dated a lot of women on the Upper East Side.”
To be fair, being single his whole life Tom was bound to date a lot of women; however I still think it’s odd that he wasn’t 100% transparent with the ladies as they are so close. Dorinda went on to explain that although NYC is the greatest city in the world, the dating pool was incredibly small saying:
“They both like to date, so when you live in this small island called Manhattan, you’re bound to run into exes and other people.”
Despite Luann being blind to anything B.L. (before Lu) she won’t be able to ignore Bethenny’s news that Tom was unfaithful to her A.L. (after Lu.) In the next episode we will see Luann break down after Bethenny gives her the news that he was spotted with yet another woman at the Regency with his tongue down her throat. For such a small dating pool in Manhattan, Tom seems to have dated them all!
