LuAnn DeLesseps The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Luann de Lesseps Asks: “If You Can’t Forgive Someone You Love, Then Who Can You Forgive?”

Luann certainly wasn’t shown in the best light on the last episode of RHONY. She seemed more concerned that Bethenny exposed her fiancé than the fact that he cheated. Further, the whole cover up story involving Dorinda and the Regency staff was beyond bizarre (and I’m hoping we hear more about it at the reunion!) To defend her actions, Luann seems to be using love as her defense, taking to her Bravo Blog to explain herself:

If you can’t forgive someone you love, then who can you forgive? I was very hurt when Bethenny shared with me, after showing the other girls, the photo of Tom at the Regency. It took me some time to pull myself together after the initial shock. My gut reaction was to think about how this looked to my friends and family, and it wasn’t until I had time to think that I began to understand what I was feeling. We all make mistakes, and some we make in private and others we make for the world to see. After I found out about what Tom had done, I had to dig deep within myself to find the love to forgive, but I did. I forgave him shortly after reuniting back in New York. Was it easy? No way. Am I glad I did? Absolutely. We are still engaged and are finalizing our New Year’s Eve wedding plans. He’s a good man and we love each other. We will stand the test of time regardless of what those women try to do to ruin our happiness.

As this season draws to a close, I want you all to know how much I appreciate the love and support you’ve shown me through the years on this show. I’m optimistic about my future, and I know that regardless of what happens in life, Tom and I will always love each other. So if you take anything away from this season, it’s not the problems that arise in our relationships, it’s how we deal with them when they arise that defines us. So love without fear and forgive without regrets.

Tune in to our upcoming reunion show where we work through this and our other challenges together.

I have to say I’ve changed my opinion on Luann the last few episodes. At first I felt bad that Bethenny humiliated her on TV; however this week I couldn’t believe how she turned on the other women in order to protect her unfaithful fiancé.

What are your thoughts on Luann’s blog? Do you think she was mad at the wrong people?
