We have learned that Real Housewives of New York City star Luann de Lesseps has decided to go back to rehab. People magazine was the first publication to report the news.
But while this is something she needs for her health and wellbeing in general, we also hear that she will be skipping the RHONY reunion episode because of it.
Her co-star Bethenny Frankel told People that ‘This weekend, Luann was surrounded by her friends and decided — with their support — that in light of the recent circumstances, it’s the healthiest choice for her to not attend Tuesday’s reunion shooting so that she can continue her healing process. Luann’s now surrounded by a group of people who have her best interests at heart and who is working to make sure she gets the help she needs.’
‘Bravo has been very supportive of Luann during this time. It’s a brave and honest decision by her, and everyone is rallying around her and wants the best for her,’ Frankel went on.
Sure enough, the network decided to also release their own statement to E! News regarding the reality TV star going to rehab and they seemed really supportive.
As fans know already, Luann is one of the OGs as she’s been part of the show since season 1.
Aside from showing her full support, Bravo also asked the fans and media to respect her privacy during this time.
Luann’s return to rehab comes just weeks after she took to social media to tell her followers that she had been sober for no less than six months.
She also made headlines not too long ago after her former husband, and their two kids filed a lawsuit against her.
Are you sad Luann will be skipping the RHONY reunion?
