RHONY season 8 was very up and down for LuAnn DeLesseps. She met her soulmate, was slut-shamed, lost friends, and found out her forever cheated; basically her storyline revolved around Tom and she put him above everyone!
It’s been months since season 8 wrapped, and season 9 filming is already underway! The ladies (besides Jules) were all confirmed back, and we’re expecting major fall-out between LuAnn and her cast mates.
Recently LuAnn chatted with the Daily Dish, and revealed things have gotten a bit better between her and her estranged co-stars. “I see the ladies, you know, in the Hamptons. Ramona [Singer] has a house out there, Bethenny [Frankel] has a house out there. Sonja [Morgan], I’ve seen around the city. So, I see the girls,” LuAnn explained.
Of course, she also shared that she was “in between dress fittings,” and she is in wedding mode right now, BIG TIME! “I think they are excited for me. The girls are happy for me. They now see that this is really happening, and that Tom and I are in love and so they moved on. I moved on. They see that I’m happy, that’s all that matters,” she declared.
While we were previously questioning Dorinda’s absence at LuAnn’s Miami Bachelorette Bash, she insists that they are good. “Dorinda [Medley]’s one of my bridesmaids. She introduced Tom and I, so I thought it’s only fitting that she should be a bridesmaid,” LuAnn assured.
LuAnn has clearly mended some fences with her co-stars, yet she hasn’t confirmed if they will actually be invited to her New Years Eve nuptials. “I still have a couple invitations that I’m waiting to send out [laughs],” she joked. Adding, “To be determined. You might see a couple of the Housewives, whoever’s on their best behavior and who’s gonna be happy for me. I don’t want any negative energy at this wedding.”
However, the B herself (Bethenny Frankel) doesn’t even seem to be in consideration for an invite, although LuAnn claims she won’t rule anything out. Clarifying that things really haven’t gotten better between the former friends. “Not really. To be quite honest, not really. But, we just haven’t seen a lot of each other. Never say never, but I don’t think so.”
Finally LuAnn dished on her fiancé the infamous Tom D’Agostino, and she wants us to know the pair is better than ever! “Well, now that’s a year ago so, you know, life is about forgiveness, right? And we love each other. Tom and I are strong and have never been better. And if we can get through that we can get anything,” LuAnn said confidently.
“I’m not accepting wedding gifts. We’re having our guests consider giving to charity,” LuAnn wrapped!
