Nothing good ever happens in Palm Beach, Florida for Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps. First, she wed Tom D’Agostino there before the duo split up seven months later. The pair could never escape the roar of cheating allegations.
On December 24, 2017, during a disastrous trip back to the scene of the marital crime, the cabaret star was arrested for charges stemming from trespassing in a hotel room that wasn’t hers. Luann also happened to be in bed with an unidentified man. Wow! She was charged with disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence, battery on an officer, and crimes against a person.
According to an article in Page Six, Luann’s legal issues are mounting once again. She will appear in court on May 23 for a hearing on her probation violation.
Luann said, “I am looking forward to my day in court to present evidence clarifying these allegations.”
So how did Luann violate her probation? Let me count the ways. After her 2017 arrest, the reality star had to stay away from alcohol a year. She reported to rehab instead of the RHONY Season 10 reunion as part of a plea agreement. Luann was probably thrilled to miss that reunion.
Luann failed an alcohol test on April 21. She told her New York probation officer that she consumed two mimosas after one of her cabaret performances in Chicago. Luann could have entered an outpatient treatment program. But the Countess graciously “declined due to her touring schedule.”
Luann also refused to wear an alcohol ankle monitor because it was “too intrusive.” Really, Luann?
A source told Page Six in a previous article that Luann did complete the community service part of her plea deal, as well as the M.A.D.D. courses. She also has allegedly been attending AA meetings.
But her Florida probation officer states that Luann “failed to provide sufficient documentation of completed AA meetings.” She was ordered to attend two meetings per week, but so far, the court has only received documentation from five meetings.
The probation officer also stated in court documents, “It appears to [the court] that [she] is not serious about her sobriety or the orders of this Court. As stated on previous notification, [she] has used her unlimited travel as a reason to be noncompliant with her conditions of supervision.”
As viewers have seen this season on RHONY, Luann is a cabaret star on an entitlement tour. Her behavior is so uncool! Will Luann’s ego continue to grow? How much legal trouble is she really in? I guess we will stay tuned to find out!
TELL US: WHY ISN’T LUANN TAKING HER LEGAL PROBLEMS SERIOUSLY? SHOULD SHE TAKE A HIATUS FROM HER CABARET SHOW TO FOCUS ON HER HEALTH AND SOBRIETY?
