“Thank you for the generous expression of warmth, kindness and understanding. Your support and encouragement helps me to get through,” the Real Housewives of New York City star tweeted on Friday.

The day before, the 52-year-old reality star announced that she and D’Agostino had made the decision to divorce after only seven months of marriage.

"It's with great sadness that Tom and I agreed to divorce," she wrote at the time. "We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!"

Luann spent much of her brief marriage defending against rumors of a rift between herself and her new husband. The two had a rocky start to their marriage after Luann learned that her future husband had kissed another woman prior to their wedding day.

Several months before her wedding, Luann opened up to ET about her decision to take him back, saying, “We love each other. I always say if you can't forgive the people you love, then who can you forgive? … I'm not going to let a silly kiss ruin the rest of our lives.”
