'Tom and I are in love, and marriage takes work,' she told the weekly. 'We are working on this together.'

This comes shortly after it was reported that the reality star and 50-year-old businessman engaged in a public spat last week at a Manhattan eatery in which LuAnn slapped Tom according to  the New York Post.

The 5ft10 , who was previously wed to Count Alexandre DeLesseps from 1993 until 2009, tied the knot on December 31, 2016 to the printing entrepreneur at The Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida.
