Boyfriends, marriages, and relationships come and go in the world of the Real Housewives. However, few relationships in the history of Housewives have been as scrutinized and discussed as Luann de Lesseps and Tom D’Agostino’s short lived romance.
While many of Luann’s Real Housewives of New York co-stars have openly questioned her and Tom’s relationship, Dorinda Medley stood behind the once upon a time couple and supported them every step of the way. And even now following the news of the RHONY couple’s split, Dorinda is still showing support for Lu and Tom.
In a new interview with The Daily Dish Podcast, Dorinda reveals what she thinks caused Luann and Tom’s split.
“I don’t think it was a matter of not loving each other. I think it was too much, too soon,” Dorinda explained.
“It’s a change in life. And maybe Tom wasn’t so much ready for that. You know, Luann loves to be married. She does.”
Dorinda also hinted that maybe Tom’s “friends” didn’t help things.
“I didn’t think that helped that all these old friends that were maybe once-girlfriends that were still all hanging around. Not that anything was going on. I just think a new marriage needs to be left alone.”
Dorinda says she calls Lu every few days to check in on her but says “She’s a strong woman, she’ll get through this.”
Love how Dorinda speaks the truth but makes it “nice.”
Thoughts on Dorinda’s comments? Who do you think is blame for Luann and Tom’s split? Do you think Luann and Tom were doomed from the start? Did Tom’s “friends” cause issues in his relationship with Luann? Was Tom ready for marriage?
