The two ladies were enjoying dinner when Mortimer cut to the chase and questioned why de Lesseps has been tight lipped about the disastrous fallout of her marriage. As Radar readers know, de Lesseps divorced D’Agostino after seven months of marriage after he was caught red-handed as a serial cheater.
“You’re not opening up enough and sharing enough about it,” Mortimer told D’Agostino’s ex.
“It’s hard to be close and a friend and care when it doesn’t feel like you care that much about it,” the blonde continued.
De Lesseps – who was arrested back in December for allegedly assaulting a police officer – gave her friend a simple explanation for avoiding the divorce chatter.
“I can’t even talk about Tom anymore,” de Lesseps quipped. “I’m over it. I don’t want to talk about it.”
De Lesseps then admitted to the camera why she really didn’t want to spill the details to her co-stars: “I feel too raw, I feel too vulnerable to open up to these women about how I really feel because they’re my harshest critics.”
Mortimer chalked the conversation up to admitting she misses the “fun” side of the Countess – and then poked fun at her for still using the old title.
“But you’re married and divorced,” Mortimer slammed de Lesseps.
De Lesseps corrected Mortimer, saying she’ll “always” be known as the Countess.
“Is Queen Latifah really a queen? No!” she joked.
Meanwhile, Carole Radziwill was prepping all episode for running her first-ever marathon. Her on-again off-again boy toy Adam Kenworthy ran it with her. Radziwill revealed she was running it in honor of her “hero,” her late husband Anthony Radziwill.
As Radar previously reported, Radziwill, 54, and Kenworthy, 32, are back to dating.
Also in the episode, Sonja stirs the pot after she’s caught talking smack behind Mortimer’s back and suggesting she’s a gold digger.
A sneak peak of next week showed Dorinda Medley exploding on Sonja Morgan while the ladies enjoy a getaway to the Hamptons!
