Luann De Lesseps had a surprising lesson from a night she was in jail. One would think it would be something far more insidious, or possibly violent. However, the reality star revealed something more commonsensical than one might imagine.
After her arrest in Palm Beach, Florida, for disorderly and drunken misconduct as well violence against police officers, Luann had to sit in a cell for the night.
Luann told viewers and audience members on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen that it’s important to remember at least three phone numbers because when you’re in jail, you have to be able to recall at least one.
She only could remember one number, and it was one she didn’t want to call. The number evidently belonged to her ex-husband, Tom D’Agostino, who she divorced last year.
Lesseps said she didn’t call a single person and because of it, she had to wait. “It was awful,” she remarked. She tried to call her publicist to no avail and was released the following afternoon.
So she only spent one night in jail. As for her upcoming court date, the reality star is sure that she won’t have to do any more time. However, she would be more than happy to do community service, because she enjoys helping people.
Afterall, she’s a nurse. As for the night in question, Luann said it could’ve played out entirely different if she would’ve gotten off on the right floor.
However, because of her drunken state, she went to the wrong room. But on a more positive note, at least she was able to sell out tickets for her cabaret show as a result of the publicity. They say any publicity is good publicity!
