The Countess isn’t being uncool about ex-husband Tom D’Agostino’s recent engagement.
Luann de Lesseps tells Page Six that she has nothing but well wishes for Tom amid the news of his engagement to Danielle Rollins on New Year’s Eve.
“I’m not somebody who dwells in the past. I’m not a big reminisce, and sometimes I would like to be, but I’m just not that person. That whole story’s behind me,” the Real Housewives of New York star explained. “I’ve moved on, and I only wish Tom the best.”
In 2016, Luann and Tom said ‘I do’ on New Year’s Eve in Palm Beach, Florida; however, their happily ever after was short-lived.
Seven months after tying the knot, Tom and Luann ended their marriage. He later moved on with Rollins. The two have been together for four years.
Despite moving on from Tom, Luann admits she sometimes thinks about what her life would be like if her and Tom’s marriage worked out.
“There’s still a part of me that wishes it worked out. I’d still have my penthouse; I’d have a place in Palm Beach [Fla.]. And maybe I could have avoided a lot of problems,” she admitted. “But things happen in life, and I look at them as learning experiences.”
However, Lu believes that her split with Tom was the catalyst for her successful career as a cabaret performer.
“I don’t know if my cabaret would have been such a big success if I didn’t go through all that drama in my life,” Luann noted. “People are so supportive of me that they wanted to come and see me rise like a phoenix.”
She added, “What I did was I took lemons, and I made lemonade and a cabaret career. And that was so unexpected. You just have to pick yourself up by your bootstraps and keep it moving. That’s what I try to do with my life.”
When it comes to the type of man she’s searching for, Luann says, “I really want somebody who completes the situation for me and completes the package for me. I have a great life; I have beautiful children, I have beautiful homes, I have a career. I’m busy. I’m looking for somebody who’s like-minded, who I can travel with, who has my back, who I can trust, who’s handsome. And somebody who adds to my life and doesn’t take away from my life.”
Over the years, fans have watched the highs and lows of Luann’s romantic life play out on Bravo. Fans have seen Lu be married, divorced, single, dating, and more on RHONY; however, she admits she’s down to date someone who isn’t willing to film.
If her next beau is willing to film for RHONY, Luann says she’ll think twice before introducing him to viewers.
“It just really depends on the person, I think. That’s a bridge I’ll cross when I get to it. It’s like bringing somebody home to meet my kids,” she explained. “Unless I’m confident and I know that this person is around to stay and I know that I can trust him and I know that I want to bring him around my kids, that’s how I feel about bringing him around the show.”
