While this situation is 100 percent their business and a personal decision for de Lesseps to make on her own, I can’t help but feel like this behavior won’t be a pattern in their relationship.
“I’m not going to let a stupid kiss ruin the rest of my life,” de Lesseps told People. “He screwed up. What he did was wrong. But this wasn’t premeditated. It wasn’t an affair. It was a mistake. He was upset with me. It was a stupid retaliation of some sort. He did the wrong thing, and he totally recognizes that. I know in my heart of hearts that he loves me.”
If this is how D’Agostino reacts when he gets angry — he goes for revenge by kissing other women — then the future does not look bright for these two.
Having a few drinks and kissing an ex don’t equal a moment of weakness, they equal a huge red flag, especially if the two aren’t even married yet.
Again, I’m not trying to say that every time someone in a relationship strays that the relationship should end or that de Lesseps isn’t intelligent enough to make her own decisions about her life partner, but I worry for her. I worry that she isn’t seeing the signs here that D’Agostino isn’t just someone who makes innocent mistakes.
There have already been other warning signs in their relationship. The other Housewives have aired their concerns. There have even been rumors that this isn’t the first time he’s been unfaithful in the relationship.
Love is blind, but I hope de Lesseps can open up her eyes to what’s really going on and discover the truth — whatever it may be — before she says, “I do.”
De Lesseps did say during the People interview that if another cheating scandal happened, it would be a serious problem.
“Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me,” she explained.
The couple’s wedding is scheduled for New Year’s Eve.
