That being said, the whole cast trip came to a grinding halt when Bethenny Frankel decided it was time to show the Countess what Tom had been up to with a former girlfriend, when they were caught smooching on camera.
Still, LuAnn doesn’t really care, and she ended up forgiving Tom.
If you can’t forgive someone you love, then who can you forgive?
Instead of directing her anger towards Tom for locking lips with another chick, LuAnn decided to be more upset with Bethenny for showing her the evidence:
I was very hurt when Bethenny shared with me, after showing the other girls, the photo of Tom at the Regency. It took me some time to pull myself together after the initial shock. My gut reaction was to think about how this looked to my friends and family, and it wasn’t until I had time to think that I began to understand what I was feeling.
Whether you agree with how Bethenny approached the situation or not, you have to think about whether or not it would have made a difference.
I mean, even if Bethenny had pulled LuAnn to the side, away from the girls, and away from the cameras, do you think LuAnn’s reaction, and hostility towards Bethenny would have been any different?
Keep in mind, this is the same woman that agreed to let the Count screw around on her, as long as she could keep the title of being his wife.
So, it sounds like LuAnn is willing to put herself through whatever crap it takes in order to be in a relationship with a man.
After I found out about what Tom had done, I had to dig deep within myself to find the love to forgive, but I did. I forgave him shortly after reuniting back in New York. Was it easy? No way. Am I glad I did it? Absolutely.
Of course there’s no way LuAnn would view blatant cheating as a deal breaker, and she said that she’s going through with her plans to tie the knot:
We are still engaged and are finalizing our New Year’s Eve wedding plans. He’s a good man and we love each other. We still stand the test of time regardless of what those women try to do to ruin our happiness.
So, by “those women,” do you mean the ones that Tom can’t seem to keep his dick in his pants when he’s around them, and cheats on you with them?
Do you mean “those women,” despite their approach, who tell you that Tom has been cheating on you, and provides you with solid evidence of the fact, but you decide to blame the messenger?
In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king, LuAnn.
Still, LuAnn says she’s optimistic about her relationship with Tom:
I’m optimistic about my future, and I know that regardless of what happens in life, Tom and I will always love each other. So if you take anything away from this season, it’s not the problem that arise in our relationships, it’s how we deal with them when they arise that defines us.
And sometimes you can define a person by the word “fool.”
