Luann de Lesseps: Bethenny Is Going to be the Terrorist of This Trip

Luann talks about the drama of the Miami trip and is tired of the girls criticizing her about Tom.

Sonja, We Got the Yacht!

When did it become a crime to speak to the press about yourself or your fiancé? When I’m interviewed about my upcoming wedding, I’m happy to dish on Tom and our plans to marry in Palm Beach. In this episode, you see how a celebration of my story was almost turned into a fight about who talks to the press and who dated Tom before we started seeing each other. How many times do I have to tell Ramona and Sonja that what happened before I met Tom doesn’t matter? Sonja speaks of a 10-year flirtation with Tom in the same breath as congratulating me on our engagement. Who does that?

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

It took Tom only a couple of months to realize that he wanted to marry me and in 10 years, he never considered making the same commitment to Sonja. This doesn’t mean that Tom didn’t care about her or that he didn’t enjoy her company. They are friends. What it does mean is that our relationship is different, and we are deeply in love and looking forward to spending the rest of lives together.

I was glad to hear that we were going to Miami rather than Hawaii simply because I’ve been spending quite a bit of time in Palm Beach, and I’m always happier when I’m close to Tom. When Carole said she’d be able to make it to our party, I was excited to be with all the girls on a beautiful yacht with Tom by my side. Jules was glad for Miami as well because her parents are close by in Boca. The part with her parents was really sweet, and you can see why she’s such a positive person. I’m hoping her new Modern Alkeme tonic brand is a huge success, and I’m sure her parents are very proud of her.

This Could Mean the Wedding Is Off

How amazing was my friend’s boat? Sonja may have had a larger one at one time but not in a long time so you’d think she’d be quiet and enjoy. Is Sonja a sleeper cell? I’m thinking that Bethenny is going to be the terrorist of this trip! You can see how excited she was to tell her friend in Florida about something she heard regarding Tom and me. The look on her face says it all…like a cat who ate the canary! Why some of the girls revel in making me unhappy, I’ll never understand. I’m just glad that I know myself and I know Tom so whatever Bethenny’s concocting, we’re ready for it.

Pick a room, pick a guy…what’s next with Ramona? Will she ever be a contented guest? We invited our Palm Beach friends without any regard to Ramona’s man needs yet I know that she was feeling frisk-ay that night. She couldn’t get into her bathing suit quick enough. She acts like a nun but we all know better, and I do not judge. I wish this were the case for the other girls because they seem to have never-ending opinions about my engagement. Bethenny has no problem disparaging Tom by insinuating that he dated only wealthy women. Tom is very successful on his own and doesn’t need to marry for money. We will see next week what trick Bethenny has up her sleeve.

Until then, be grateful, not hateful.
