There has been some debate about how well some of The Real Housewives of New York City knew Luann de Lesseps' fiancé, Thomas D'Agostino, before they started dating in late 2015. Now, the Countess' future hubby is addressing how intimate he really was with Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan before falling for Luann.
"I don't watch the show, but I get different pieces here and there, and a lot of the stuff I have heard? It's so outlandish to me. In terms of Ramona, we never dated. We went out a couple of times – maybe two or three times to dinner with some friends. There was never any chemistry," he told People, referring to chatter that the twosome dated.
This season, Sonja confessed to being friends with benefits with Thomas during his pre-Luann life. But, he's also downplaying that relationship as well. "Sonja, I've known for years. The funny part is, although I've known her for years, we got together once, but she's on this kick that it was more than that," he said. "I saw her at a party two or three weeks ago, and I said to her, 'Sonja, this is me, what are you talking about?' and she says, 'Oh, I'll have to get my diary, I'll tell you when.'"
Luann and Thomas announced their engagement in February after a few months of dating. They plan to say "I do" on New Year's Eve in Palm Beach, Florida. Luann and Ramona will face-off about the quickie engagement on Wednesday's episode of RHONY. Check out a preview below.
