During an appearence on Megyn Kelly Today, Tuesday, August 14th, Luann De Lesseps did her very first interview since she finished her second stint in a rehabilitation clinic. Luann dished on a number of different issues in her life at the moment, including her lawsuit against ex-husband, Count Alexandre de Lesseps, regarding a breach of contract in their divorce deal.
According to the Real Housewives Of New York City star, she found out that she was getting sued by her ex through media reports. Needless to say, it wasn’t a great way to discover a worsening situation.
“I felt so hurt by that because I really just wanted to move on,” the reality star remarked. Lesseps revealed it had something to do with a real estate deal which went bad.
“You take this, and I get that. It was a good trade.” As her situation continued to get worse, Luann began drinking again as a way of coping with stress.
When she was hanging out with one of her girlfriends, her friend stated that she wanted to make watermelon martinis, which she couldn’t turn down, so she ended up having two or three.
Lesseps admitted she can’t just have one drink, so she subsequently drank six beers, and then a bottle of rosé. It’s been a rough ride for her, but slowly, Luann is getting her life back to where it used to be. However, some of her old relationships are still in ruins, including with Dorinda Medley, whom she feuded with on RHONY.
According to the reality star, she and Dorinda aren’t cool right now, but she is hoping they’ll turn things around eventually because she “loves Dorinda.”
The Real Housewives Of New York City alum said she and Bethenny Frankel are doing well, however. Frankel has supported her an innumerable amount of times during her struggle with alcohol.
“She was really there for me, along with my good girlfriend, Ann, and Barbara.” Following her exit from rehab, Luann said she’s feeling good, and “every day is a struggle,” but she is managing to make it work, one day at a time.
