However, the couple’s blissful marriage came to an end in August 2017, when de Lesseps announced that she and her husband were getting a divorce. Her friends had already warned her against marrying D’Agostino because of infidelity rumors.

The reality star said, “It was like the weekend before the reunion basically, and Tom went out and he called up an old girlfriend and they met up with a group of people and I didn’t know about it. I found out about it the next day in the press, so that for me was, like, the final straw. I was like, ‘I can’t do this anymore.’”
There was also a rumor that de Lesseps slapped D’Agostino in July 2017, but she denied it. She explained that she was hurt about something and wanted his attention. So, in the heat of the moment, she grabbed his face.
