Let's Discuss: LuAnn DeLesseps Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

The Countess in Cuffs: Luann de Lesseps Apologizes After Arrest; Plus Find Out What Led Up To Luann’s Arrest!

Countess Luann de Lesseps spent part of her holiday weekend in handcuffs and not the fun kind.

The Real Housewives of New York star was arrested on Christmas Eve after she resisted arrest and allegedly attacked a cop.

Currently, Luann faces “charges of battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and two corruption by threat charges.”

So, what led to this very ‘un-Countess’ like behavior from Luann?

Well, it turns out before her arrest Luann was discovered trespassing in a hotel room and was found in bed with a man.

According to Page Six, Luann and her male companion “entered room 407 at the Colony Hotell in Palm Beach while a maid was finishing a turn-down service Saturday night.”

Things then got hairy when Luann and her male friend were found in bed by a security guard and told them they had to leave. Luann was, in fact, a guest of the hotel but was staying in room 327.

After “multiple attempts to get both subjects to leave over a five minute period,” the security guard called the cops who responded and found Luann in the hotel room with her friend Julie Olson.

The ladies “appeared to be highly intoxicated,” and while Julie followed orders to exit the hotel room, Luann locked herself in the bathroom and refused to leave.

Eventually, Luann exited the bathroom, attacked a cop, was arrested, and the rest is history.

However, following the incident and her arrest, Luann began her apology tour and attempted to defend her antics.

“This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding, and being here brought up long-buried emotions,” Luann told PEOPLE in a statement. “I want to offer my sincere apologies to anyone I might have offended with my behavior.  I am committed to a transformative and hopeful 2018.”

Luann is due back in court on January 25, 2018.

I think Luann needs to get herself together. I understand getting shit-faced, but Luann took it way too far. This will be such a fun storyline on RHONY – can’t wait to see what Luann’s co-stars will have to say.

Are you surprised alcohol was involved in Luann’s arrest? Does Luann deserve a free pass after the year she has had? Do you think Luann will change her ways in 2018? What type of sentence do you think Luann will get?

    Thank God this happened on the NY franchise because damn, Kim took a total beat down for her drunken stupor at the Beverly Hills Hotel on BH. Can’t imagine how Kyle, LVP and Rinna would be going into victim/concerned accuser mode right now.

  • swizzle

    She drinks too much and is a horn dog. We all knew that. She needs to grow up. Anyone drinking to that excess in their 50s needs help. She’s not some college kid who doesn’t know better.

  • Cori

    What a mess. That wasted to not even know the hotel room you were in and it’s only 9:20 at night?! Yikes.

  • michers

    Girl please . You’re like 50 something , this isn’t your first rodeo or divorce …. #moneycantbuyyouclass

  • ~Medusa~

    What happened to the man? Did he morph into Luann’s female friend??
    If Lu was naked when the security guard arrived, she may have run to bathroom to find a towel.

    Under the circumstances, saying she’s sorry won’t cut it.

    • Lea

      That’s what I want to know, what happened to the man? Why did the police ask both of them to leave if it was his room? (per Radar article Samael posted above.)

      • ~Medusa~

        Inquiring Minds Want to Know. This story has more questions than answers.

    • Rain

      I hope you’re warm and bundled up sweetheart ?????

      • ~Medusa~

        Yes, I am. Thanks for your concern.

        • Rain

          Of course ?

  • September24

    You just know, somewhere, Carole is laughing her a$$ off! LOLOLOL!!!

    • Lea

      And Simon and Alex.

  • ~~ La erik ~~

    I’m laughing nonstop! LOL

  • ????????Ð??Ð????

    So…..were they naked and doing the deed when they busted in on them? Why the hell does is Lu screwing randoms in random rooms in a hotel? It’s all so weird to me and not like Lu at all, she’s really having a meltdown post Tom.

    • Rain

      Great questions kitten

    • HelenWheels68

      Actually, I think this kind of tawdry behavior has always been Luann’s way of life. It explains marrying the “Count” after a fortnight and the trysts at the meat-market, “Beautique,” not to mention the low-rent Johnny Depp “pirate” down there in the islands, etc.

    • Kiddle

      Remember when Bethany went off on Lou at Dorinda’s, Bethany said that Lou sleeps with every guy in Manhattan?

  • ????????Ð??Ð????

    “I want to offer my sincere apologies to anyone I might have offended with my behavior. I am committed to a transformative and hopeful 2018.”

    Nice comment from a publicist.

    • missroxmiss

      that is what I was thinking. It is almost like she can’t help herself.

      • samael

        Good afternoon missroxmiss!

        Everyone can help themselves – these famewhores choose the “can’t be bothered” and then go nuts when others use it as a storyline! sheesh..
