On the night of the 200th episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, one of the greatest mysteries in the show’s history has finally been solved: whether or not Luann de Lesseps actually hooked up with Tomas “the Pirate” Ribeiro in St. Barths during Season 5. On the August 7 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home, Tomas returned to set the record straight once and for all.
In the video above, Andy Cohen shocked Luann with a surprise appearance from Tomas. “Oh my god, you look so different!” she said when Tomas appeared on screen.
It’s true; Tomas looks totally different now, and much less like Johnny Depp than when we originally met him. “You look so handsome!” Andy said, adding, “You lost your whole pirate look. What happened?”
“This was back in the days in St. Barths,” said Tomas. “I’m in Miami now, so life changes.”
Tomas also provided an update on what his life is like today: he’s currently focusing on himself, and is also a singer. He also added that he has not yet “found the perfect lady.”
“I have to say, I’m looking at him, he looks so handsome and cleaned up. Luann, you’re single now, Tomas is in Miami…” Andy teased before addressing the question that has been on everyone’s mind for years. “There’s been a lot of debate on the show about whether you and Luann hooked up. Whether you two got together. Can you tell us what happened that night?”
“Should I? Well, it may surprise many people, but nothing happened between Luann and I. Luann is a great woman who is a great soul,” said Tomas. “I’m very happy to have met you, Luann.”
Tomas then read iconic RHONY lines in French, and Luann had to guess who said them. See how Luann did, as well as what Tomas is looking like now and what he had to say about Sonja Morgan, in the video above.
