This is one RSVP card Luann de Lesseps won't have to chase down — because the invitation was never sent! De Lesseps has officially taken her Real Housewives of New York City co-star, Bethenny Frankel, off of the guest list for her upcoming wedding. But before we get into the nitty-gritty details of de Lesseps' wedding day drama, we just gotta ask... Think we could snag Frankel's seat the reception?
Back in February, the Real Housewives of New York City star became engaged to businessman Thomas D'Agostino. Since then, the former Countess has been planning her big bash, choosing New Year's Eve as her and her hubby's wedding date and selecting not one, not two, but three wedding dresses for her nuptials. But a major wrench was thrown into the wedding plans when her fellow Real Housewife, Bethenny Frankel, brought her fiancé's infidelity into the spotlight, which fans of the show know will play out in tonight's episode of the hit Bravo show.

"It's hard to invite people that tried to do you harm," de Lesseps told People magazine of her decision not to invite Frankel. And after a RHONY season filled with fights, an explosive reunion (airing on August 31st), and the unfortunate fact that Frankel was the one who presented de Lesseps with photographic evidence of D'Agostino, we have to admit that having her sit front and center during the "I do's" might be a little, uh, awkward...
"It was disgusting," de Lesseps said of her former friend's actions. "Her handling of the situation — and I go over this at the reunion — was terrible," referring to how Frankel spilled the sticky situation to RHONY's Ramona Singer and Carole Radziwill, before going to de Lesseps. "She was like the cat who got the canary," continued the one-time Countess. "Does a good friend do that to you? Someone who has your best interest in mind? No."
And thus, de Lesseps and D'Agostino are going forward with their wedding plans — but with one less guest in attendance. Again, wanna forward us that extra invite, de Lesseps?
