It looks like after her arrest back in December, Luann de Lesseps has managed to change her life for the better. Now, the Real Housewives of New York City star opened up about her scandal and how it actually helped her adjust her lifestyle.
‘If I had just gone to the right hotel room, it would’ve changed everything, but I did not, and there was a reason why it happened to me. It really taught me a lot about myself,’ Luann stated.
She went on to reveal that ‘that’s when I decided to go to rehab and address the issues I was having in my life, because I just felt it was an out-of-control moment for me, and I do not like to be out of control. It was embarrassing, and all I can say is that it changed my life in such a big way now. I feel like in so much more control and happier.’
Following the incident, for which she might end up spending five years behind bars, she feels like a ‘changed person.’
‘Thank god for yoga and my music. My cabaret show has been the most incredible therapy for me,’ the celeb added.
Luann also confessed that after her divorce from Tom D’Agostino, ‘I was using alcohol to numb myself, and now that I am aware of that, I do not foresee that I’m going to have this problem again. Right now, I am just not into drinking, because I feel so much happier without it.’
In addition, she even seemed grateful to her RHONY co-stars for helping her go through the difficult situation.
‘I heard from the women after I got arrested, and they were very supportive, and I needed that. I went through a lot of pain, so the last thing I needed was to be kicked while I was down. I think people are looking at me now and thinking, ‘Wow. She, like, fell down the staircase and she got back out, and she is climbing again.’ And that is how I feel about my life. I feel I am taking control of my life again, and unfortunately, I had to go to that extent to turn my life around, but it is OK and I am OK with that.’
