Elegance is learned, my friend. Obviously, no one is a bigger proponent of this sentiment than Real Housewives of New York’s Luann de Lesseps. The Countess has had quite a lot going on after a drunken arrest and subsequent rehab stint, but she’s also trying to rebuild her life…and her image. Luann has expressed an interest in following in co-star Sonja Morgan’s footsteps with her own cabaret show, and we are all better for this desire.
While we all aren’t lucky enough to be front and center at one of Lu’s slap and tickle performances (slap yourself on the back because you’re laughing at her wittiness while she’s tickling her throat with that deep baritone of hers–get your mind out of the gutter, people!), the San Francisco Pride Parade was graced with the Countess on Sunday.
It was a close one for the former Countess! After she was arrested in Palm Beach over Christmas and charged with drunkenly assaulting an officer, Luann de Lesseps was on the hook for FOUR felonies (and one totally embarrassing arrest video), but upon accepting a guilty plea her charges will convert to misdemeanors.
Initially, the Real Housewives Of New York star was charged with violently resisting arrest, disorderly intoxication, and battery on a law enforcement officer – all felonies which would carry mandatory jail time, however after pleading down Luann will likely get off with probation and a fine. How do you say “Whew!” ala Francaise?
Luann de Lesseps is a free woman once more! OK, well, kinda. She’s home from rehab at least. After getting arrested in December for drunken and disorderly behavior, Luann checked herself into a 21-day treatment program for alcohol.
Luann celebrated her first day home on social media updating the masses on her progress and expressing her gratitude. “It’s good to be home. I’m doing great. Spending time with friends and family. Thanking everyone for your continued good wishes and support,” she tweeted.
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…
Tom D’Agostino pretty much ruined Luann de Lesseps‘ life (and dignity), so after all that, he feels “really sad” that she was arrested last week. Well, kinda.
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!
Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps is kicking off the holiday week with a bang! Luann was reportedly arrested in Palm Beach, Florida early this morning and the story must be a doozy!
According to reports, Luann was arrested by Palm Beach Police on the charges of: battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and crimes against a person. Oof! I guess we can assume that Luann had one hell of a night!
