LuAnn de Lesseps’ drama with her fiancé, Tom D’Agostino, will take center stage as Real Housewives of New York prepares for its Season 8 finale.
In the last episode of RHONY, Bethenny Frankel provided evidence that D’Agostino cheated on de Lesseps on the eve of their engagement party.
Now, with the stakes at an all-time high, de Lesseps will finally confront D’Agostino. Frankel, however, still doesn’t think de Lesseps is handling the situation like she should.
According to People, a preview for the finale shows de Lesseps arguing with D’Agostino over the phone just moments after Frankel showed her photographic proof of his cheating ways.
The images show D’Agostino kissing a Playboy model at the Regency Hotel in New York.
“Bethenny just sent me the picture, Tom!” an angry de Lesseps tells him. “You have no recollection? What does that mean? You were so wasted you don’t remember?”
“How could you do this to me — at the Regency, in front of everybody!” she added. “How can you do this?”
D’Agostino attempted to explain away his actions that night, but de Lesseps was having none of it.
“She was giving you a kiss? You were making out for an hour!” she interrupted.
This isn’t the first time D’Agostino has stirred up drama on the show. Before dating de Lesseps, D’Agostino had flings with several members of RHONY, including Sonja Morgan.
Although de Lesseps finally confronted D’Agostino, Perez Hilton is reporting that Frankel doesn’t approve of her methods.
Apparently, Frankel is more concerned about how de Lesseps reacted to the news than the fact that D’Agostino cheated on her.
Apparently, on the season finale or Real Housewives of New York, LuAnn seems more concerned with the fact that people know that he cheated, rather than the fact that he strayed.
Of course, de Lesseps isn’t happy with how Frankel handled the situation either.
According to Morning Ledger, de Lesseps questioned Frankel’s motivation for revealing the photos and believes she shouldn’t have told everyone about it before coming to her.
As far as Frankel is concerned, she doesn’t see anything wrong with how she handled things.
Instead, Frankel admitted that she dealt with a mixture of emotions after she found out that D’Agostino had cheated, but that didn’t stop her from releasing the photos.
“I can’t explain my feelings about it,” she stated. “Part of me felt confused and part of me felt bad. I had a multitude of emotions.”
The only regret Frankel has is how the other ladies have responded to the news. Instead of focusing their frustration on D’Agostino, everyone has been talking about Frankel’s hand in the matter.
“I think, frankly, that they both are OK with the way that they are living their lives and I wouldn’t do it again. Now, I wouldn’t tell her again,” Frankel shared.
Despite the fact that D’Agostino cheated, de Lesseps is still planning on going through with the wedding. Clearly, the two worked through their differences and have moved forward with their relationship.
According to Us Magazine, the couple plans on tying the knot on New Year’s Eve.
“I plan to make it a weekend to remember, with a cocktail party on a private yacht kicking it off,” de Lesseps shared.
So far, de Lesseps has only invited Dorinda Medley to the ceremony. Apparently, the reality star is waiting until the reunion airs to send out the rest of her invites.
Whether or not Frankel will be invited to the wedding is up in the air, but it’s a good bet that de Lesseps won’t be sending her an invitation.
