LuAnn de Lesseps is finally kicking drinking to the curb. The Real Housewives of New York star recently revealed that she’s quitting alcohol following her embarrassing run-in with the law last December. Will de Lesseps finally get her life together?
According to Page Six, the RHONY star opened up about her newfound sobriety during her very own show at Feinstein’s/54 Below in New York. While appearing alongside her good friend Kelly Bensimon and former boyfriend Jacques Azoulay, the reality star thanked her fans for their support and revealed that she’s had enough of her late-night boozing.
“Not drinking is exhausting. Getting up at six and going to my meetings and to yoga and then filming Housewives,” de Lesseps explained. “I’m dead by 10 o’clock I’m wiped out, I’m exhausted. And usually, I’m just starting at the Regency at that time.”
De Lesseps was arrested on Dec. 24 for disorderly conduct. On a date that is close to de Lesseps’ one-year anniversary with ex-husband Tom D’Agostino Jr., the reality star was found drunk in a Palm Beach hotel room and refused to cooperate with police.
De Lesseps blamed the incident on pent up emotions, which were probably related to her breakup with Agostino last summer.
The arrest will be featured on the upcoming season of RHONY. In fact, a recent teaser trailer for Season 10 featured some scenes from de Lesseps’ embarrassing ordeal. Because de Lesseps also assaulted a police officer, she was charged with a felony and two misdemeanors.
The RHONY star did not accept a plea deal during her first court date, which means she’s probably going to fight the charges to the bitter end.
Whether or not de Lesseps has to serve any time is yet to be seen. She did, however, offer an apology after the arrest.
In addition to her appearance at the New York club, de Lesseps was also a surprise guest on a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. The episode featured Red Sparrow star Jennifer Lawrence, who told Cohen that she has always dreamed of having dinner with Scott Disick, Bethenny Frankel and LuAnn de Lesseps.
Much to J-Law’s surprise, Frankel and de Lesseps were on hand to make her dreams come true.
Lawrence went crazy after seeing de Lesseps and Frankel but she still managed to ask them a few pertinent questions. As far as de Lesseps was concerned, Lawrence wanted to know how things were going with Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer.
In response, de Lesseps revealed that Singer has been shaking things up with her new skincare line but hasn’t lost her roller coaster personality. De Lesseps did not dish any more details on the upcoming season of RHONY, but it looks like things are going to get pretty crazy.
