Luann de Lesseps Explains Why She Forgave Her Fiancé For Cheating
Hopefully Luann de Lesseps knows the saying, “Fool me, once shame on you; fool me twice shame on me!”
On last week’s episode of the show, Bethenny Frankel told the Countess of her fiancé’s cheating ways.
"It felt like someone ripped my heart out of my chest," Luann told People. “I was devastated. I had my heart broken on television."
The 51-year-old has decided to forgive her love and move on — the couple is getting married on New Year’s Eve.
"I'm not going to let a stupid kiss ruin the rest of my life. 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,” she said.
“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."
Her fiancé, who had a 10-year fling with fellow Housewife Sonja Morgan, acknowledges his mistake and is regretful.
"If I could take it back, I would," he said. "I deeply regret the mistakes I've made, and most of all hate the way it hurt Luann."
The Real Housewives of New York City season finale airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
