The reality star, who tied the knot with businessman Tom D'Agostino in January, released a statement to ET on Monday, sharing, "Tom and I are in love and marriage takes work. We are working on this together."
The 52-year-old RHONY star's comments come in response to a recent Page Six report claiming that their marriage "is struggling" and that they "got into a physical confrontation last week, with de Lesseps slapping D'Agostino in a fancy Manhattan restaurant."
Ultimately, she decided to try and move past the incident, explaining on the show, "I'm not going to let a kiss ruin the rest of my life. Who doesn’t make mistakes?"
Putting their problems behind them, de Lesseps and D'Agostino exchanged vows during a luxurious New Year's Eve wedding ceremony at the Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida, where 250 guests -- including family, friends and several fellow Real Housewives stars -- celebrated their union before the ringing in the new year.
