Dorinda Medley Claims Luann de Lesseps' Fiancé Tom Asked Her to Help Cover Up His Indiscretion
Luann de Lesseps went through an emotional journey on Wednesday's season 8 finale of the The Real Housewives of New York City.

After finally learning from Bethenny Frankel that her fiancé Tom D'Agostino, Jr. kissed another woman at the Regency Hotel, the 51-year-old Countess appeared to hit all of the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance.

But while de Lesseps eventually agreed to forgive her beau of his indiscretion – and still plans on walking down the aisle with D'Agostino, Jr. this winter – she may have nearly ran over fellow Housewife Dorinda Medley on her road to happiness. 

According to Medley, de Lesseps and D'Agostino, Jr. called her days after returning from their Florida vacation – begging her to help clear D'Agostino, Jr.'s soiled name amongst the cast.  

Medley recounted the call to Ramona Singer, explaining how D'Agostino, Jr. told her he planned to bring two waiters from the Regency over for an on-camera meeting so she could then "take a bullet for Luann and bring it to the rest of the girls and make it right."

"I don't care if he brings over the waiter, the bartender, the President of the United States – I'm not going to represent them, lie for them, or be part of this," Medley told viewers. "I'm out."

Medley told D'Agostino, Jr. that she wouldn't participate in the cover up: "I said, 'Here's the problem, Tom – you can bring the whole of the Regency over to my apartment. You can pay them all to say what they want. But there's a smoking gun: the pictures!"

His response was unexpected. 

"He said 'If you're not doing that, you're not coming to the wedding and you're not going to be friends with Luann anymore.' And slammed the phone down on me," she described.

The move did not sit well with Singer, who quickly called D'Agostino, Jr. "an a------."
