During the interview, which aired as a special Watch What Happens Live episode on September 6, she revealed the exact moment she knew her marriage was over. “It was, like, the week before the [RHONY] reunion basically, and Tom went out and he called an old girlfriend and they met up with a group of people, and I didn’t know about it until I found out about it the next day in the press,” she explained. “That, for me, the final straw.”

Meanwhile, D’Agostino has begun dating again. “Tom has been seeing a few of the women in his life … but hasn’t rebounded with anyone in particular yet,” a source exclusively told Us in August, adding that the businessman is “really trying to take the high road with the divorce.”
