Luann de Lesseps

Yesterday the news hit that Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps is facing up to five years in prison following her drunken Christmas Eve arrest. Knowing how the “celebrity” justice system works, most people did not think that Lu would ever be behind bars for that long- if at all.

Now, just a day later, a court hearing was discretely cancelled and this could be a subtle indication that the former countess has a plea deal in the works.

Of course this news comes courtesy of Page Six, the go-to source for Real Housewives of New York updates and drama. Luann’s lawyer Doug Duncan was set to represent her at court in Palm Beach today, but the court date was cancelled last night.

The quiet cancellation of the court appearance could be a good sign that Luann’s lawyer is working out a plea deal. Obviously, the news will break immediately if that happens, but as of now it is unclear what the plan is.

Given that Luann isn’t one for legal trouble, I’m guessing she’ll have some community service and a fine, perhaps? What do you think?
