Now that Luann de Lesseps is one step closer to becoming Mrs. Thomas D'Agostino, Real Housewives of New York-philes might be in the business of knowing a bit more about the future Househusband. Following their whirlwind courtship, Luann confirmed her engagement to the NYC-based businessman in early February. In fact, their romance was even teased in the RHONY Season 8 supertease, which premiered earlier this week (see above). With the show set to return on Wednesday, April 6 at 9/8c, fans only have a few more weeks before Thomas will pop up on screen. Below, we've got all you need to know about the Countess' one true love.
1. He's a Successful Businessman
Following stints at companies like Workflow and Hano Document Printers, Thomas founded Smart Source LLC in 2003, where he serves as president and CEO. Smart Source is a "one stop shop" company that provides a service to businesses looking for commercial and promotional marketing materials. In addition to his duties at Smart Source, he also works with the Young President’s Organization and has a spot on the Board of Directors of VitaPet Inc., a veterinary pet healthcare company, acording to his work bio.
2. He Gets Around
Thomas has homes in New York City and West Palm Beach, Florida, which makes sense given that his company has offices throughout the country. And, if you ask the couple's pal (and matchmaker) Dorinda Medley, she thinks the wedding will take place in Florida considering how much time Luann has been spending there. "It'll most definitely be in Palm Beach. Because that seems to be her new stomping grounds, and I believe — since she eloped for her first wedding — that this will be a truly magical Palm Beach almost-fairy-tale classic, old world wedding," Dorinda told The Daily Dish.
3. He Enjoys the Finer Things
Thomas seems to have a taste for fast cars and delicious meals, as he and Luann have been spotted around luxury vehicles and at restaurants like Soho House and The Mark Restaurant by Jean-Georges, the latter of which was the restaurant where they reconnected before they began dating.
4. He Has a (Housewives) Past
Both Bethenny Frankel and Andy Cohen have dished on Thomas' past relationships with several of the New York ladies, including Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer. "I think what's interesting, and you'll see it next season on the Housewives, is that once again, nothing is clean on the Housewives of New York," Andy said. "He has history with some of the other Housewives, so it's very interesting."
5. He's an Avid Outdoors Man
And he's sharing that love for being in the great outdoors and on the golf course with Luann.
5. He's a Capricorn
How do we know? Well Luann teased that she wants to walk down the aisle on New Year's Eve as December 31 just so happens to be her future hubby's big day. "Tom is going to be 50 on New Year's Eve and he's never been married so what better time to get married than on New Year's Eve and on your birthday? I want a big blowout wedding!" she explained. "We're both Catholics. We want to get married in church with priests, the whole nine yards. Lunches and dinners and parties on yachts.”
6. He's Got Great Taste in Jewelry
Need some proof? You might want to look no further than the 8-carat yellow diamond he gave to Luann when popping the question.
