'RHONY' Star Luann D'Agostino Divorce Drama Was Not On Camera

8/3/2017 4:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives of New York' star Luann D'Agostino timed her divorce just right to avoid it playing out on the show.

Our 'RHONY' sources say production for this season wrapped a couple months ago ... so if there were any juicy spats in the days before Luann and Tom D'Agostino's divorce announcement, cameras missed the action.

D'Agostino also dodged any mention of the big D during the reunion, which was taped a few weeks ago. Our sources say the couple's sometimes rocky relationship was discussed, but there wasn't a peep about a split.

As we reported, Luann announced Thursday she and hubby Tom were calling it quits ... just 8 months after they tied the knot.

We're told producers are scrambling to figure out a way to weave the divorce into the reunion episode. Take 2?

'RHONY' Star Luann D'Agostino Splitsville

Exclusive Details

'Real Housewives of New York' star Luann D'Agostino and her husband are calling it quits.

Sources close to Luann tell TMZ ... Tom D’Agostino didn't get along with Luann's family and it seemed his inappropriate behavior in the past was too much for the family to get over once married.

She made the shocking announcement Thursday on Twitter, saying, "It's with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce. We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!"

Luann -- who got married just 8 months ago -- had a tumultuous relationship with 2 of her 'Housewives' co-stars, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan. Luann constantly bickered with them because Ramona and Sonja would bring up the fact they used to date Tom. Awkward.

Luann and Tom started dating in late 2015 and have no children.

'Real Housewives of New York' star Dorinda Medley knows bitchin' deals when she sees one -- her "Not Well, Bitch" line of products could soon land at a major department store.

We're told business is boomin' -- Dorinda's sold more than 700 items and banked more than $100k a month after launching the line. Business is so good ... Dorinda's now in talks with 2 major department stores.

Not bad, bitch.

Bethenny Frankel Pay Up, eBay Or Pull My Ad!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Bethenny Frankel never signed off on being in a commercial for eBay, but they went ahead and aired it anyway ... according to new legal docs.

Frankel's camp claims she was in talks with eBay and an ad agency about running an ad featuring clips from last season's 'Real Housewives of New York' ... but no deal was ever struck. However, the commercial still went live on "multiple media outlets" last week ... according to the docs.

So, Frankel fired off a cease and desist letter to eBay demanding they pay up for using her name and likeness or yank the ad. And she says even if they pull the spot immediately, they'll still owe her for the week it aired.

As for the ad -- it's a spoof featuring fellow 'RHONY' star Dorinda Medley ... who's apparently totally cool with being in it.

Not the same handbag as everyone else!! 😂 thank you for this @eBay @bethennyfrankel #wow #didyoucheckebay?!

Carole Radziwill Threatened by Woman ... You Better Not Air Tapes of Our Convos!

5/17/2017 1:02 PM PDT

1:20 PM PT -- Bravo says the judge just ruled in its favor, rejecting Barbara's motion to block ... which means Barbara stays in the picture ... TV show, in this case.'Real Housewives of New York' star Carole Radziwill secretly recorded talks she had with a woman, and their private convos will air Wednesday night unless a judge steps in ... according to new legal docs.

Barbara K, founder of a DIY company, claims she had what she believed to be a private discussion with Carole at a charity party at Bagatelle in Manhattan. She says 'Real Housewives' was filming ... but their convo took place far away from cameras and she didn't know Radziwill was mic'd.

According to the docs ... Barbara had a phone call with Carole more than a month later that was also recorded without her knowledge. She claims Radziwill called her back afterward to inform her both interactions had been recorded for 'RHONY.'

Barbara says she told Carole she didn't have permission to use the convos on the show or anywhere else, and her lawyer fired off a letter to Bravo telling them the same.

Despite this, 'RHONY' still plans to put Barbara in Wednesday night's episode ... which is why she requested an emergency court order to stop the show from using her likeness and/or voice.

The clock's ticking.

EXCLUSIVE

Sonja Morgan isn't giving up on selling her NYC home, 'cause if it at first you don't succeed ... get that sucker back on the market!

Real estate sources tell TMZ the 'RHONY' star just privately listed her notorious 5 story Manhattan home and is looking to pocket $10 mil for the sale.

Also worth noting: this is at least her 7th time listing it, each time for about the same price.

If she can get someone to take the place off her hands, the buyer will score 5 beds, 7 baths and a ton of modern-day luxury -- like its own elevator, a sauna, gym and an irrigated terrace. Pretty good for a crib built in 1899.

We're told Sonja is looking to stay in New York -- specifically the Upper East Side -- but won't leave 'til someone bites. She's listing through Jordan Sachs of Bold New York.

EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives of NY' star Heather Thomson is desperate to give her company's manager the boot after she says he squashed any chances of featuring the brand on 'RHONY.'

Heather wants a judge to validate the steps she's already taken to 86 Rothfeld as manager.
