Luann D’Agostino Defends Marriage Troubles: “It Was a Lovers’ Quarrel” (UPDATE)


UPDATE (7/19/17 at 7:54 a.m. ET):

Luann D’Agostino is defending her “passionate” relationship with husband Tom D’Agostino.

"What couple doesn't have lovers' quarrels? Tom and I are very passionate and very much in love with each other and things happen," she said to E! News.

"Unfortunately we are very much public people and so everybody likes to talk about it. From the Housewives to the restaurant, it's very hard to keep privacy."

She also clarified the report that she slapped her husband after a fight at a restaurant last week.

"It was more of a tap than a slap. It was a lovers' quarrel. I think all couples go through these things."

Hey Luann D’Agostino, don’t say we didn’t warn you!

The Real Housewives of New York star’s marriage to Tom D’Agostino may already be in trouble after tying the knot on New Year’s Eve last year.

Now, just seven months into their nuptials, they are reportedly already fighting in public, and not just verbally!

According to the New York Post, the reality star pair got into a heated argument at a New York restaurant last week and the 52-year-old supposedly slapped her husband across the face!

The couple’s relationship has been surrounded by conflict since the beginning, having even gone through a very public infidelity scandal on last season of RHONY.

And, despite nearly every cast member and friend voicing their concern, the “Girl Code” singer went ahead with the marriage anyway.   

“It isn’t exactly a match made in heaven. He hates the whole reality [TV] thing, he doesn’t want the attention or the scrutiny,” a source close to the couple said.

Though their relationship has never been easy, the cracks may really be starting to show now.

“There has been friction from the start. They got married so fast, they didn’t really know each other,” continued the source.

“She’s a drama queen.”

Meanwhile, the former Countess told Wetpaint just a few weeks ago that her marriage is doing better than ever.

“We’ve been through a lot, so to get to where we finally got married and started our adventure together, it was incredible,” the mother of two revealed.

Despite Luann’s castmates warning her about marrying Tom, she reiterated from the beginning that she knows what she’s doing.

“Maybe she [Ramona] is projecting, like I think Bethenny projected as well in the Berkshires,” she shared.  

“I think there’s some sort of concern there, and I can understand that, but I’m a grown woman and I know what I’m doing.”

She continued, “We’re in love with each other, it’s my life, and they should stay out of it.”
