Nobody said marriage was easy.
“Real Housewives of New York City” star Luann D’Agostino is learning that first hand. Just over half a year after she and Tom D’Agostino tied the knot, the Bravo reality star admits they’re battling through some hardships.
“Tom and I are in love, and marriage takes work,” the 52-year-old said in a statement to People.
“We are working on this together,” she continued.

The “RHONY” star’s comments come amid rumors that her second, and most recent, marriage is doomed. Anonymous sources claim she and Tom started having issues before their nuptials, but Luann’s pride wouldn’t let her call it off.
“They have hit a major rough patch,” an insider claimed. “This was going on before the wedding, and she was too embarrassed to call it off, so she tuned out what a lot of people were saying.”
“She had confided in friends that she knew something was up and that it didn’t gel — but she had to put on a good face to avoid embarrassment. Everyone gave it six months,” the source continued.
Luann’s marriage has played a big part in Season 9 of “Real Housewives of New York City.” Ahead of her big day, friends and co-stars warned her on more than one occasion that they’d heard rumors of Tom being unfaithful.

As a result of their doubts about her relationship, all but one of Luann’s co-stars was excluded from her wedding.
The “Girl Code” singer chose to ignore each warning, despite seeing photo proof of her hubby’s infidelity in the previous season.
During a cast trip to Florida, Bethenny Frankel presented Luann with the photos, which showed Tom kissing another woman at the Regency Hotel in New York City.
Although she played it cool on camera, Luann told People in December 2016 that she was heartbroken when she learned that Tom kissed another woman.

“It felt like someone ripped my heart out of my chest,” she said at the time. “(But) I’m not going to let a stupid kiss ruin the rest of my life.”
Luann and Tom got engaged in February 2016. They married the following New Year’s Eve.
