In a somewhat predictable turn of events, Luann D’Agostino announced today that she and her husband of seven months will be getting a divorce.
The Real Housewives of New York star posted on Twitter, very cordially I might add, that she and Tom D’Agostino would no longer continue their short-lived marriage. She wrote, “It is with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce. We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!” Exclamation point!
It's with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce. We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!

There’s something to be said about the legitimacy of a divorce tweet. Why not just release a statement through your publicist if you truly want privacy? Why rely on the rest of the world to know about your divorce and trust they will actually listen to your wishes? These are questions I would take seriously if they were about any other RHONY star’s tweet. But this is Luann, the woman who married her friend Ramona Singer’s date after Ramona specifically warned her that it was a bad idea.
Ramona actually responded to Luann’s tweet, and it creates a certain amount of skepticism.
I am so sad for you ….

Is that sarcasm? Is it genuine sadness? Is it a classic Real Housewives way of saying “I told you so”? Am I looking way too deep into all of this?
During the most recent season of Real Housewives of New York, Luann was busy planning her dream wedding with Tom, the man she’s now divorcing. While she did have the cameras all around, she didn’t necessarily have any support from the other Housewives. Most didn’t even try to stay quiet about their lack of interest in attending the lavish three-day wedding in Florida. I would say it’s a good thing they didn’t go because they would have wasted a lot of money, but these women are famous because they have money. After this news, it’s just a good thing they didn’t go because they would have wasted a lot of time.
Poor Luann. Will one of these gentlemen ever work out for her? I really hope not, because single Luann out on the town with the gals in NYC is bound to be a damn good season of RHONY television.
