Luann de Lesseps Reveals She's Still in Touch With Ex-Husband Tom D'Agostino (Exclusive)

'Real Housewives of New York City' star Luann de Lesseps is in a good place when it comes to her ex-husband, Tom D'Agostino.

Real Housewives of New York City star Luann de Lesseps is in a good place when it comes to her ex-husband, Tom D'Agostino.

ET recently spoke to the 52-year-old reality star about the 10th season of RHONY -- which premieres Wednesday on Bravo -- and she talked about their current relationship. The two split last August after just seven months of marriage.

"Tom and I are cordial, but we don't have children, we weren't together a long time ... but he's doing his thing and I'm doing mine," de Lesseps tells ET's Nischelle Turner.

She also shared that D'Agostino actually called her to check in after she got arrested last December in Palm Beach, Florida. De Lesseps was charged in January with the felony of resisting an officer with violence as well as misdemeanor charges of trespassing and disorderly intoxication, and she pleaded not guilty on Dec. 29. 

"I did hear from Tom, of course," she says. "He wanted to know if I was OK and reached out." 

Of course, the former couple's relationship famously got off to a rocky start when, months before getting married, de Lesseps' RHONY co-star, Bethenny Frankel, presented evidence that D'Agostino had kissed another woman. The businessman then admitted to the tryst, blaming it on a night of heavy drinking. But de Lesseps says her fellow RHONY co-stars have actually supported her after the split instead of gloating that they had warned her.

"After all the women said about me marrying Tom and etcetera and the joy... the marriage... the problems... the divorce... I really should have felt like they were going to say, 'I told you so,'" she admits. "But you know what I love? They didn't really do that."

"They weren't, like, 'I told you so,'" she continues. "They were like, 'Aw. We're here.' It hurt enough. ... I think the housewives realized that it hurt enough to go through what I've been through, so the last thing I wanted to hear was, 'I told you so.'"

But at the end of the day, de Lesseps says she has no regrets about marrying D'Agostino. She also joked about her #CountessAndFriends cabaret show.

"You know, I loved him," she says of her ex. "I stood by him, I couldn't stand by him anymore. And that's when I decided that it was time to move on and I don't regret it because it was a path I had to go down. I had to go down that road!"

"Don't ask me why, but that's what my spirit guide told me!" she adds. "'You got to marry Tom, so you could fall on your face and get back up again and do a caberet show.'"

These days, de Lesseps says she's not looking to get into a relationship anytime soon.

"I'm so not ready to date again and I said to my daughter, 'I haven't kissed anyone in seven months,' and she goes, 'Mom, really!?" she shares. "I just haven't found anybody that I really want to kiss, you know? But I'm sure I will, I'm just not there yet. .... Maybe this summer, and I'm so busy with the caberet show."
