A few months sober, the Real Housewives Of New York star can’t believe how much better her life has become since seeking help. “At this point in my life, I don’t want to drink, nor do I have interest in drinking,” Luann reveals. “Rehab saved my life. It was the best thing that I could do for myself and I’m so glad I did that.”
LuAnn de Lesseps divorce
Well if there’s any relationship that has come full circle it’s Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps. Bethenny blew up Luann’s life by outing Tom D’Agostino as a cheater, but in the wake of Luann’s drunken and disorderly arrest Bethenny is supporting her fellow Real Housewives Of New York star.
“We all have high points, low points, times we feel confident, times we feel less confident and so… ” Bethenny said in defense of Luann, who she’s “been texting” while Luann is in rehab. I’d say a failed hook-up in the wrong hotel room resulting in a mugshot is definitely a low point…
When Tom learned that his ex was arrested in Palm Beach after a tryst gone very awry, he reportedly told friends that he was feeling “shocked” and “really sad for Luann and her family that they had to go through this over the holidays.”
I am not ready for the Countess to turn into this level of a hot mess yet. Nope. Unacceptable! Alas, it sounds like Luann de Lesseps took a page out of Kim Richards’ messy playbook this week when she was arrested in Palm Beach, FL, for resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer. The Real Housewives Of New York star was allegedly highly intoxicated during the tussle, and had apparently stumbled into someone else’s hotel room – where she was “in bed with an unidentified man.” Oh, man. This is all very uncool.
Hotel security came to eject Luann and her buddy from Room 407 of the Colony hotel in Palm Beach. The couple was registered for Room 327, but had apparently wandered into the wrong room “while a maid was finishing turn down service” – so they just decided to crash there!
If there’s one person who I bet can’t wait for 2017 to end it’s Luann de Lesseps. She got married on New Years Eve and was divorced from Tom D’Agostino before Christmas, and now she’s once again starting over. With a little help from her Real Housewives Of New York family.
“We’re a discombobulated Housewives family. At the same time, we are family, you know what we mean? So I think we’ll like always be together,” Luann explained. Dorinda added, “We actually really enjoy each other’s company. I mean it goes to the left sometimes but we do have fun! We laugh so much.”
After a whirlwind and tumultuous courtship, Luann and Tom were married for less than a year when those indefatigable cheating rumors popped up again and the Real Housewives Of New York star announced their split. While both parties deny infidelity and insist their split was amicable, Tom has already been linked to socialite and PR rep Anna Rothschild who was recently spotted wearing a 15 carat diamond on that finger.
Ramona Singer recently sat down for a Facebook Live chat about her issues with Bethenny Frankel, how Luann de Lesseps is doing post-split, and how Bobby Zarin’s recent health scare brought her back together with Jill Zarin.
Since Real Housewives Of New York wrapped its dramatic season where Ramona spent plenty of time looking the fool (and not just because of whatever plastic surgery she did on her face), she’s admitted her behavior was “childish” and she has been making amends. “My intent is never bad, but my delivery always SUCKS,” she defends. “I really have bad skills when it comes to communicating.” Good to know the Pinot-pology tour strikes again!
Andy Cohen is not the all-seeing/all-knowing Oz of Real Housewives. Although even cave dwellers without TV could’ve predicted Luann de Lesseps‘s divorce. Of course, Ramona Singer knew it, but Andy claims he was surprised by the news.
“The wild thing is,” notes Andy, “[Luann] had just gotten all the other women in her corner and rooting for her. That’s what’s also really sad about this, you know? Everybody was on her team.” Then boom: marriage is terminated. Luann’s logic is apparently more backed up than the toilets at Villa Crumbles de Morgan.
