‘The Pirate’ Joins Andy Cohen & Luann de Lesseps

Sacre le bleu! Luann de Lesseps graced the Bravo virtual clubhouse on August 6 for Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen to celebrate the 200th episode of The Real Housewives of New York City. For the occasion, Luann revisited some of the most scandalous moments in RHONY history with a little help from a few surprise guests. But no cameo could top the moment that Luann's infamous "Pirate" popped up on screen — and trust us, it will have you doing a double take.

"For the next game, we are bringing back the man who, in two hundred episodes, has sparked more conversation and debate than perhaps any other RHONY side character in history," Andy teased before an unsuspecting Luann. "Please welcome...The Pirate from St. Barts, Tomas Ribiero!" And what a surprise it was! Not only has Tomas shed his Johnny Depp-like mystique that channeled the movie star's Pirates of the Caribbean persona, but he also donned a sleek suit and clean cut face.

We felt particularly seen when we spotted Luann's reaction. "You look so different," Luann exclaimed with a smile on her face and, honey, we couldn't agree more.

Tomas' shoulder-length locks have been shorn. His face is shaved. And there wasn't an oversized hat in sight. Instead, Tomas looked as dapper and dashing as he has in our fantasies with the tailored ensemble to match. Swoon.
