There has been a LOT of bullcrap rumors about the infamous kiss between Tom and a mystery woman now believed to be former playmate Deborah Diggs (Miss March 1990) at The Regency. There is a ridiculously fake text that has been floating around for a while now that mysteriously appeared after the infamous finale that is still racking up comments here. Once the theory was put forward that production was the person who fed Bethenny the information, the fake text says that Luann and Tom were filmed on the infamous Wednesday night and Luann left and Tom stayed at the bar. I do not believe this. First of all if production had filmed they would have shown that with some sort of dramatic “Luann and Tom before the betrayal” crap on screen. They would have shown a happy Luann, completely unaware that Tom was about to suck face with another woman over and over and over. By Wednesday night, most of all the crew was in Miami getting releases from hotels and clubs they planned to film. Footage of Lu and Tom getting a drink at the bar would not be something they would send a crew to at that point in the season.
Also it was a ridiculous exchange by two ditzy females where one tells the other she met someone who knows someone who she really, really believes who said production was there after Lu left having drinks. Also unlikely crew would break down and put all of the cameras and filming items in the van if they were going out afterward on a Wednesday night, they would go to one of their usual places. In reality, it was a Wednesday and they had to work the next day either in NYC or Miami so any late night drinking probably did not happen at all. I do not believe the texts. There is no other information other than, production stayed and they were wondering how to get the info to Bethenny. How did this mysterious person that someone just happened to meet overhear all of that, and not mention seeing Tom and Deborah at all? It’s horseshit. You can believe it if you want, but I don’t.
I firmly believe that Bethenny had someone tailing Tom ever since she found out Luann was dating him. And it finally paid off. Perhaps with a little help from some LA contacts.
OK Magazine, for reasons that astound me, revealed Deborah’s identity only in the print version of the magazine, at least for now. Thanks to Tamara Tattles spies, I’ve received the story which appears first in the September 12 edition on newstands now. According to the story, Deborah first met Tom in 2009. Deborah says that when she walked into The Regency, Tom immediately kissed her. Big deal. She also says he never mentioned Luann all night or indicated that he was engaged and he was definitely “putting the moves on me.” There is a photo of Tom and Deborah (face blurred why?) embracing at the bar.
There is no mention of an hour-long makeout session. Just a kiss upon meeting. However, Deborah goes on to say that she and Tom remain close friends and are in contact. The last time she saw Tom was in May at the Montage Hotel. She claims that Luann and Tom and Luann got in a fight that night and he said he was done. She says they just talked and nothing sexual happened. Of course OK is trying to make it seem like she is a “friend with benefits.” Seriously? There was no mention by her that they ever dated, just that they have been friends since 2009. Tom and Luann went to LA together about that time. Tom also threw Luann a surprise birthday party in May. Not long after they embarked on a European vacation and have been happily traveling the globe all summer. They clearly were not “done.”
But here is the kicker you won’t hear anywhere else. Deborah is friends with the RHOBH and attended Dorit Kemsley’s 40th birthday party that was filmed for the upcoming season. I find it interesting that Deborah just happened to be in NYC at The Regency on a Wednesday night. New Yorkers tell me that is the hot night for The Regency and a night that Tom, who is a regular, would likely be there. So what we now know, is some woman who lives in LA,who shows up at RHOBH filming when she can, showed up at a bar where Bethenny just happened to have a PI tailing him (if like me you believe that). I find that fascinating. She has also managed to get herself on TMZ to talk about her good friend Bruce Jenner’s transition. She seems to find herself in the midst of many media stories.
In a bit of irony, Deborah has a photo on her Instagram that reads, ” Be happy, it drives people crazy.” It seems to be working just that way for Luann.
