Luann de Lesseps Thanks Fans For ‘Support And Encouragement’ After Announcing Divorce!

Luann de Lesseps gave her first public statement on Friday since announcing her divorce from her husband of seven months Tom D’Agostino, Jr. And her message was one of gratitude. “Thank you for the generous expression of warmth, kindness and understanding,” The Real Housewives of New York City star tweeted. “Your support and encouragement helps me to get through.”

Her tweet came with another noticeable and unspoken statement: As previously reported, the former Countess changed her name back to the name she had before marrying Tom — de Lesseps on her social media pages.

Born Luann Nadeau, she first got the last name while married to Count Alexandre de Lesseps from 1993 to 2009 — and carried it after their divorce. The pair share two children, son Noel de Lesseps and daughter Victoria de Lesseps. Luann also carried her display name reversal over to Instagram on Friday, where she posted an inspirational quote that gives some insight into how she’s coping with the end of her second marriage, reports PEOPLE.

“When God pushes you to the edge of difficulty, trust Him fully because two things can happen. Either he’ll catch you when you fall, or he will teach you how to fly,” the quote reads.

Luann announced via Twitter on Thursday that she and Tom are calling it quits. “It’s with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce,” the former countess wrote. “We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!”

Hours after sending the tweet, the Bravo reality star was spotted out in Sag Harbor, New York, without her wedding ring.

A Luann insider told PEOPLE Friday that Luann’s spending time with her kids in the Hamptons before jetting off to Europe on a family vacation.

The source explained the couple had a prenup, and that the divorce will be quick — but that Luann “doesn’t feel foolish” about how short their marriage lasted.

“They had a real quick love affair and she wants to be married,” the source said. “She was married for a very long time and had two children. She comes from a large family in Connecticut and all her brothers and sisters are married. She’s a person who likes being with one person and married – she doesn’t want to be single.”
