Luann de Lesseps couldn't keep her hands to herself while hosting a charity event – and it wasn't her husband she was getting cozy with! The Real Housewives of New York star was busted ignoring Tom D'Agostino and flirting with other men amid their marital issues, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
De Lesseps, 52, hosted the 3rd Annual Foodie Ball to benefit ACE New York on Tuesday, July 18 in New York City. Despite reports that her marriage to D'Agostino is on the rocks after a physical altercation in public earlier this month, her husband attended the event.
But the newlyweds couldn't put on a united front for long, as de Lesseps ignored her husband during the event. "He would talk to friends at the bar, while she mingled with guests," an eyewitness told Radar. "She would grab him once in a while just to make rounds."
The insider reveals that D'Agostino ditched his wife halfway through the event, as he left right before she made her speech about the cause.
But de Lesseps wasn't alone for long, as she had another man's shoulder to lean on!
The former Countess was caught on camera flirting with other men. "She was laughing with these two men at the bar after her husband left," the onlooker said. "At one point she leaned on his shoulder."
As Radar readers know, D'Agostino was busted making out with another woman the night before their February 2016 engagement party. Despite the cheating scandal, which aired on the Bravo series, she went through with their lavish New Year's Eve wedding.
Page Six reported that de Lesseps slapped her husband while at a Manhattan restaurant last week. "There has been friction from the start," a source told the publication. "They got married so fast, they didn't really know each other. She's a drama queen."
But de Lesseps refused to admit that their marriage is on the rocks. "What couple doesn't have lovers' quarrels?" she said during an interview with E! at the event. "Tom and I are very passionate and very much in love with each other and things happen. 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."
