LuAnn DeLesseps Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Luann de Lesseps Arrested On Christmas Eve – Currently Facing Four Felonies!

RHONY star Luann de Lesseps started out 2017 with an over the top wedding and is ending it with an over the top arrest!

The Daily Mail has reported that Lu was arrested early Sunday morning after being severely intoxicated and reportedly attacking members of law enforcement.

Records show that:

“The Real Housewives of New York City” star, 52, was arrested in Palm Beach, Fla., on charges of battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and two corruption by threat charges.”

And it just gets worse from there folks!

Apparently the Countess engaged in some very ‘un-Countess’ like behavior yelling, “I’m going to kill you all” before her arrest, slamming the door and kicking at least one officer, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Lu was taken to the Palm Beach County jail and was released without bond just hours later. As many other reality stars before her, Lu now has her own mugshot where you can tell she clearly has had one too many drinks and even has a bit of a smirk on her face:

TMZ later reported that Luann has “been charged with 5 crimes, 4 of which are FELONIES — battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, and 2 counts of corruption by threat.”

It sounds like the judge even had concern for her as TMZ reports that:

“Before being released, the judge suggested Luann might have a drinking problem, and then warned her not to incriminate herself by responding.”

Based on what we’ve seen on the show I would say that is a legitimate concern. Luann has some time to reflect on herself as she is due in court 1/25/2018.

We all know that just last year on New Year’s Eve, Luann married who she thought was the man of her dreams only to divorce him months later. As her ‘would be’ first anniversary is coming up, perhaps she was drinking to drown her sorrows? It’s clear that Luann has some issues she needs to work through; however saying she had a rough year is an understatement.

Earlier this year, her daughter Victoria was also arrested for a DWI in April of 2017.

As of now, no word from Luann’s rep or anyone from her family. Stay tuned as AllAboutTRH will keep you updated as the story unfolds.

    It was bound to happen – I don’t think she ever real grieved over her failed marriage. Going to Palm Beach right before her one year anniversary was not wise. She drank, shacked up with someone in an empty hotel room and got busted. Not surprised she went off. She will move on and be okay. She is DAMN lucky they let her out on a Sunday – in most places she would have sat in jail until the 26th and spent Christmas behind bars. Lu will be okay.

    • bits

      So I guess she decided to stay in the Palm Beach area. That Tmz pic looks like the beaches here… and the guy has a Juno Beach shirt on…

      • samael

        Good morning bits

        I don’t know the U.S.A. places very well..apparently there are two -“palm” – places..I don’t get the significance..but it was noted by tinsley and Bitchenny…

        • bits

          Hi Samael, there are 2 palm beaches one is where people are filthy rich and the other is West Palm Beach where there are a wide assortment of folks and wealth. They’re in the same radius…Palm Beach has a famous shopping area called Worth Avenue. Mar a lago is also there so it’s getting lots of attention now.

          • samael

            Thank you bits, I can picture this now…cuz when they spoke about this on RHNY and on this site..I couldn’t quite picture the distinction.

          • missroxmiss

            thanks i kinda wondered if that was the case. . Tinsley must of come from the high end and was putting LuLu in her place ?
            that her wedding was not in the high end of the Palm.

            • bits

              I think LU’s wedding was in the high end of Palm Beach. Since the Colony hotel is where she beat up the cops and had her wedding brunch that’s my guess I will try and get more info from the natives tomorrow and see what the deal is.

  • HelenWheels68

    Was it really “Palm Beach” or the lesser-than, ‘West Palm Beach?’

    We wouldn’t want Tinsley’s knickers in a knot over the difference with a distinction.

  • shaw

    There’s me thinking S10 was gunna be dull

    Watch Sonja, Ramona and B throw shade

  • Pookiebear986

    Money can’t buy you classssssss

  • FUCHESS

    And everyone laughed when she was so drunk she kept falling down drunk while on the ladies Tequila getaway… Now this. She’ll probably be laughing this off too. LuMan has real problems.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS, MY FRIENDS! ????

    • Rain

      Very merry Christmas and so nice to see you back ?????

  • pastagirl

    OK Lu….time to reel it in!!! And it is a pretty cool mug shot, really!!! I love Lu, always have. I hope she takes some time to heal and reflect that it is time to get a bit more healthy!! If this was about Tom, he is not worth it.

  • missroxmiss

    LuLiar having a bad year is this biggest understatement . It’s terrible that a man like Tom could send her down the wrong path… It would not surprise me if she was with Tom or stalking him.. I’ve never been a LuAnn fan . Her attacking police just makes the hitting Tom issue more believable.

  • Theresa

    I read that Tom said Now everyone see’s his side off the divorce …. BS .. The divorce is because you couldn’t behave , you only wanted to get your name out there.

    • ~Medusa~

      That’s low of Tomcat to put in his 2 cents after what he did to Lu.

      • missroxmiss

        she hit him love pat my Arse

        • Khipp

          Perhaps she did “love pat” ole Tom Cat . I would have knocked his teeth out. But that’s just me.

          • missroxmiss

            me2 he played her real bad he is a jerk JMO

          • ~Medusa~

            His smirking face was asking for a punch in the kisser.

            • Rain

              Medusa ? I hope you had a lovely time xoxo

              • ~Medusa~

                Thanks, Rain. My plans kept falling through due to severe weather issues. However, yesterday we celebrated all day long, to make up for the missed Tuesday. I hope you had a very nice & peaceful holiday.

                • Rain

                  ALL day celebration sounds amazing to me ???. I had a nice one thank you for asking . I tire quickly but I power through, nobody likes a whiner ??

  • Laurie

    Oy! Poor Lu…. I guess the memories of last year caught up to her. Now she’s and Tinsley have something in common. I predict most charges will be dropped, she’ll do community service and have a great storyline for next season.

  • Khipp
    • samael

      the first one caught on film!

    • ~Medusa~

      I love these clips. Nobody falls down stinking drunk so gracefully & with good humor, like Lu did. (I didn’t fall down this beautifully while being sober!!!! LOL)

      • Khipp

        LOL me either.

  • samael
  • ~Medusa~

    Luann’s next book will be: “Clink With the Countess”.

  • samael
  • ~Medusa~

    Andy Cohen is probably lit up like a Chanukah bush. He’s twirling his mustache and rubbing his hands together with mad glee at the thought of another one-on-one “Special” he’ll have with Luann.

  • ~Medusa~

    Welllll, this incident caps off a very bad year for Lu. She went from the Countess to Brandi Glanville in 5 minutes!

    Her mugshot says it, though: “Yeah, I did it. So what, bitches?!!!?”

    • michers

      Shit … I think Lu is the only one with terroristic threats under her Hermes belt !
      Happy Holidays Honey !

      • ~Medusa~

        michers, Happy, Happy Holidays to you & yours!!!!

        • michers

          Same to you honey buns XO

      • Khipp

        Mich, for some reason I don’t find her that annoying. Now the police, on the other had, certainly have a different opinion.

        Don’t ever threaten the police, no matter how shit faced one is.

        https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3d7c5d1f950b25ffb6324a5812d38827bcc45a3757d3a04b87034bff19bf6a3e.jpg

        • michers

          Your emojis are awesome lol!! I liked Lu until she stirred pot and meddled in a friendship she shouldn’t have on top of her throwing rocks and acting all deer in headlights lol. Ya know , typical HW shenanigans 🙂

          • Khipp

            Thanks Mich. I like playing around with pics and gifs. “A picture is worth a thousand words” …sometimes.

            I have a bit of a soft spot for Lu, after that verbal beating The Bitch gave her. Uncalled for IMO.

            • michers

              Oh yeah . That was nasty and rude . She’s another mess lol..

    • ????????Ð??Ð????

      I had a feeling Lu was headed to this point. There were some pics released of her on RT, the Instagram threads and she looked lost, drunk and just plain weird, from the clothes she was wearing to her pose. It felt like all was NOT right in her world. I mean obviously it wasn’t with her divorce bur something seemed off. I wonder if she’s kicking herself from here to Moscow for marrying that asshole and now she’s lost her Countess title forevermore? I think she really enjoyed the title even though I have a feeling she will always think of herself as a Countess, title or not! LOL Happy Boxing Day Mein Freund!

      • ~Medusa~

        Hallo, Mein Freund!!! I hadn’t checked in on Lu’s social media. It sounds as if she tried to gloss over her pain when she originally split. During the “Special” with Andy, Lu was her usually plucky, self assured self. Most likely, she was covering up the embarrassment. By always exuding an upbeat, constantly chipper outer shell, it’s difficult to show her very human failings & flaws. That is, Lu tries to keep up a front of serene perfection. However, it’s a thin veneer that cracked under extreme pressure. I hope she seeks counseling or else there will be many more episodes like this one…

        • ????????Ð??Ð????

          Hallo Mein Freund!! Hoffe, du hattest ein schönes Weihnachten!

          I guess the story is evolving, apparently she broke into a hotel room with some guy? Very strange. I saw the video of Lu being arraigned in front of the Judge, she looked rough, not the same Lu we are always used to seeing. He told her to stop drinking and to seek help.

  • Lisa.Hill

    I wonder why and who called the police on her to begin with.

  • Lisa.Hill

    oh boy…………………….

  • Bruce’s Balls

    Now she can swap felon stories with Treape. #clinkclink

  • Gurrrrl – that hates soggy

    Luann – you are my new favourite housewife ever!! you go guurrll – I love a countess that can get her drink on and then get arrested!! You are so awesome. Who cares what the tea drinkers say – you showed what a real countess does – gets down and real. Thank you so much for the early xmas present! Again, guurrrlll you are the best

  • Khipp
    • Boo

      Great one! Lol

    • michers

      LMAO!!! HW emoji of the year

      • Khipp

        HAHAHAHA, thanks.

  • michers

    Ha! Bravo star , Countess by Bravo …don’t ever say shit about Sonja bitches ! Or any others for that matter …. Lu being like this isn’t new only the arrest is

  • Candace Campbell

    My heart goes out to Lu, she has had a tough year. Tone down the drinking LuAnn and save yourself.

  • samael

    Lydia, this is off topic…Lara said there would be an RHNJ exclusive yesterday…did the sites source not come through?

    • Khipp

    Good morning Lydia! Merry Christma

    Being honest, 99% of RH have drinking issues…according to their morning after apologies ????

    wow, kicking the police care and threatening to kill everyone! Lu! holy crap!
    On a lighter note – her mug shot is pretty good

    • Khipp

      Ouch!!

      I’m wondering where Lu was arrested. It sounds like her home, or someone’s private home, not a club. Anyone know?

    • ~Medusa~

      KimiKaze’s mugshot is THE funniest because she thought she was incognito.

      • Khipp

        Medusa, I’m surprised they didn’t make her take off her hat and sun glasses for her “portrait”.

        • ~Medusa~

          Khipp – hehehehe… I bet they were afraid to. KimiKaze was Kray-Zeee.

          • Khipp

            Medusa, correct me if I’m wrong, but I think Kimmy kicked a police officer too. That’s called booze balls, lol.

            Ya know who should have been arrested? That unstable nutter Rin Tin Tin, who threatened “I’ll fuck you up” Kim. And Liar Lips was sober. The mind reels.

            • ~Medusa~

              OHhhhhhh, YES, Khipp – You’re right. KimiKaze tried to evade the police by hiding in a bathroom stall. After they got her out, she kicked a cop in the shin. That was her first offense. The above mug shot was taken after she tried to steal 2 shopping carts full of cheap toys from TARGET. Look how her Blahvo cast mates treated the incidents. “Poor Kim”.

      • ????????Ð??Ð????

        Rambles looks like Gilligan after her 3 hour tour at Target!

        • ~Medusa~

          LOL –

  • HelenWheels68

    According to police, Luann threatened, “I’m going to kill you all.” No clue as to who, “you all” are.

    She doesn’t seem to be wearing a statement necklace but those bracelets sure tell a story.

      Thanks for the link. This would make a great episode on the upcoming season: LuAnn Interviews Criminal Attorneys/Girl Trip to Palm Beach: “Booras, acknowledging de Lesseps’ fame, said she should hire a criminal defense attorney from Palm Beach instead of ignoring the charges.”

        Lea have a very Merry Xmas 🙂
