Bravo released a statement this week confirming that de Lesseps had relapsed and was back in a rehab facility. The reality star decided to check herself back into rehab so that she could “focus on her health.”
As fans will recall, de Lesseps went to rehab earlier this year after she was arrested for disorderly conduct in Florida. She was also charged with resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.
Following de Lesseps’ embarrassing scandal, an inside source told Us Magazine that the reality star was using alcohol to cope with the drama in her life. This includes dealing with her divorce from Tom D’Agostino Jr. last summer. The two decided to call it quits after only seven months of marriage.
Although de Lesseps clearly has a problem with alcohol, the source says that she wants to start drinking again once she has fully healed.

De Lesseps has not spoken about her second relapse and attempts to regain her sobriety. Fortunately, it sounds like she has the full support of her co-stars and friends, which is an important step in turning things around. We can only hope that de Lesseps finally gets the help that she needs and can kick her habit.
In addition to Mortimer, RHONY star Bethenny Frankel also voiced her opinion about de Lesseps’ recent relapse. The Skinnygirl mogul revealed that de Lesseps was surrounded by friends when she decided to enter rehab a second time. She also revealed that LuAnn de Lesseps decided not to film this season’s reunion because it would not be a healthy choice.
Fans can watch the drama unfold when new episodes of the Real Housewives of New York air Wednesday nights on Bravo.
