RHONY’s Luann D’Agostino Ends 7-Month Marriage

It’s over for Luann D’Agostino and husband Tom. The Real Housewives of New York City star announced Thursday via her Twitter account that she and her husband of seven months are calling it quits.

“It’s with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce,” wrote the former Countess. “We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!”

A close friend tells PEOPLE it was Luann who officially moved to dissolve the marriage.

“She is sad,” says the source, “but she was the one who made the decision to file.”

The source reveals that Luann is going on vacation and “finding comfort” with her grown children, Victoria and Noel.

Adds the source of Luann and Tom: “They had lots of issues and really tried to make it work, but it was just obvious they weren’t on the same page.”

Luann’s RHONY cast mate Ramona Singer, who had previously gone on dates with Tom and who made no secret of predicting the relationship would be short-lived, was among the first to respond to the news, replying to the original tweet: “I am so sad for you.”

The couple’s Dec. 31 wedding was the main event of a lavish, three-day wedding weekend in Palm Beach, Florida, attended by several friends of the bride from various Housewives franchises.

Luann, 52, was previously married to Count Alexandre de Lesseps. Tom, 50, had not previously been married.

Beset by doubts about their relationship throughout their whirlwind courtship, the pair weathered divorce rumors in mid-July, with a source telling PEOPLE the couple had hit a “major rough patch.”

“Tom and I are in love, and marriage takes work,” Luann told PEOPLE at the time. “We are working on this together.”

One insider told PEOPLE in July that many of the couple’s issues stemmed from “trust issues” related to lifelong bachelor Tom’s previous infidelity and flirtatious personality that had been causing friction well before the wedding.

“There have been a lot of problems,” acknowledged the source. “She felt he was using her for her fame and he went from Ramona to Sonja to her. He’s a Housewife groupie.”

Luann herself told PEOPLE just days after word of newlywed troubles surfaced: “What couple doesn’t argue? Tom and I have a very passionate love affair going and that’s why we got married.”

In an interview with Good Morning America Mary sat down to talk about the divorce from her husband of 12 years, Kendu Isaacs.
When asked how she was doing and what caused the split, she said:

My heart is Ok. I’m hanging in there. No one wants to go through this. This is hard. I’m hanging in there.” She would later explain to Roberts what was her breaking point in the long relationship. “The breaking point was when I kept asking over and over and over again for respect and to be respected and it just seems like I was beating a dead horse and it seems like I was talking to a wall. I just wasn’t getting it back. If I can’t get respect in the relationship, then I have to move on to save myself. That was the point where I’m like, I’m done. I just can’t do it any more.”

Jolie filed legal docs Monday citing irreconcilable differences.
She’s asking for physical custody of the couple’s 6 children. She is asking the judge to give Pitt visitation. It’s significant … she does not want Brad to have joint physical custody … only joint legal custody.
Sources connected with the couple tell us … Angelina’s decision to file has to do with the way Brad was parenting the children … she was extremely upset with his methods.

Our sources say, Angelina became “fed up” with Brad’s consumption of weed and possibly alcohol, and mixed with what she believes is “an anger problem” … felt it became dangerous for the children.
Indeed, Angelina’s entertainment attorney Robert Offer says she made the decision “for the health of the family.”
We’re told there was no alleged “third person” … her decision to file was solely over Brad’s interaction with their children.

Will and Jada: Close To Divorce

It’s over! After 17 years, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are ending their rocky marriage – with a blockbuster secret divorce deal.

“For Will and Jada, holding it together these past few years has been tough because their marriage has been on life support for a long time,” an insider told Radar.

“They’re exhausted from trying to maintain the façade of a happy union,” the source continued. “They’ve decided to pull the plug in a carefully choreographed manner, [and] agree announcing their split at the end of the summer is the right move.”

The A-listers have already “worked out a confidential settlement to protect their $240 million fortune, and prepare their kids [son Jaden, 17, and daughter Willow, 14] for the fallout,” said the insider.

Hinting at their split earlier this year, the Bad Boys stud, 46, admitted that their marriage had “died” during an interview. Meanwhile, Pinkett Smith, 43, seemed to acknowledge Will’s notorious wandering eye, telling Howard Stern: “I’m not his watcher. He’s a grown man.”

She later added that she’s fine with Will’s ways, “as long as Will can look himself in the mirror and be okay.”

Rumors have persisted since 2013 that Smith romanced his Suicide Squad co-star Margot Robbie. He’s also been pictured without his wedding ring.

Pinkett Smith also allegedly cheated in 2011 with HawthoRNe co-star Marc Anthony.

“They tried to fix things with therapy, [but] it’s not happening,” explained the source.

Kevin Hart Says His Biggest Fear Is Finding Out His Son Will Turn Out Gay

In a new interview with Rolling Stone Magazine comedian Kevin Hartexplains that his son’s sexuality is no laughing matter. Kevin admits that as a straight man, his number one job is to make sure his son doesn’t turn out to be homosexual…
“One of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay. That’s a fear. Keep in mind, I’m not homophobic. . . . Be happy. Do what you want to do. But me, as a heterosexual male, if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will.

“It’s about my fear. I’m thinking about what I did as a dad, did I do something wrong, and if I did, what was it? Not that I’m not gonna love my son or think about him any differently. The funny thing within that joke is it’s me getting mad at my son because of my own insecurities — I panicked. It has nothing to do with him, it’s about me. That’s the difference between bringing a joke across that’s well thought-out and saying something just to ruffle feathers.
