Luann de Lesseps may be losing her countess title with her upcoming wedding, but by throwing in the crown, she's getting some pretty hefty bling in return! Back in February, the Real Housewife of New York became engaged to businessman Thomas D'Agostino and she couldn't help but flaunt her new supersized engagement ring all around town. (Could you really blame the woman?) And now de Lesseps is spilling all of her upcoming wedding plans — and, despite the fact she'll no longer be a countess, her ultra-lavish nuptials sounds totally fit for royalty.
The reality star certainly does have a lot to celebrate come her big day, which she's planning to have on December 31. "You know what, it's threefold," de Lesseps explained to Entertainment Tonight. "It's Tom's birthday, he's going to be 50, it's our wedding, and it's New Year's Eve." Well, a party like that certainly calls for some head-turning attire, if you ask us! So what's a one-time Countess to do? Get herself three wedding dresses, of course!
Although the former model said that she's still in the early stages of her wedding plans, she knows that she wants three — count 'em, three! — wedding dresses for that walk down the aisle. "For my big night, why not have three different dresses?" asks de Lesseps. Well, we certainly can't think of a good reason not to... "I'm gonna work and collaborate and design one myself, because I love style and fashion. I've styled myself for the last eight years of the show," she said, referencing her always-stylish RHONY persona.
While de Lesseps still hasn't decided if she's going to extend wedding invites to her Bravo cast-mates ("Let's see how the ladies behave at the reunion," she slyly says), it sounds like this bride-to-be couldn't be more excited to tie the knot once again. "I'm a hopeless romantic," de Lesseps admits. "I knew I wanted to get married again, I kind of put that out in the universe, and it came true. I'm just as shocked as you are. I'm shocked and thrilled."
Best of all? Luann isn't letting something as silly as a new marriage license stop her: "You can always call me the Countess," she promises. Phew, what a relief, you guys...
