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

Luann de Lesseps Announces She Will Be Checking into an Alcohol Treatment Center!

Luann de Lesseps is making a shocking move following her arrest on Christmas Eve.

Just moments ago the Real Housewives of New York star announced that she would be voluntarily checking into an alcohol treatment center!

On Instagram, Luann announced her plans to seek professional guidance and treatment for alcohol following her arrest.

In the post, Luann apologized once again for her behavior and thanked her family, friends, and fans for their support.

Read Luann’s full message below!

Currently, Luann is facing four felonies including “battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and two corruption by threat charges.”

Following her arrest, Luann was released and is due back in court on 1/25/2018.

However, “before being released, the judge suggested Luann might have a drinking problem, and then warned her not to incriminate herself by responding,” TMZ previously reported

It sounds to me like Luann is doing some significant damage control and is checking into treatment before the court orders her to. Perhaps Luann does have a drinking problem. I never thought Luann drank too much, but maybe things have changed since we last saw Luann. It has been a stressful year for the Countess.

Are you surprised Luann is checking herself into an alcohol treatment center? Do you think Luann has a drinking problem? Sound off below!

      Happy New Year to you Kirby!!

    • Rain

      Kirbylicious ??????? love you baby ?

      • Kirby

        Mother ??? thank you for being my ride or die , my +1 and allowing me to be part of your universe ??

        • Rain

          You’re ok too ????
          I’m kidding babe , ?? U

  • Wackattack

    This bish is wack

  • Boo

    I think this may have been her attorney’s idea, preemptive to show the court she takes full responsibility for her actions and sought help of her own accord.
    She has no record, so she’ll probably end up with a hefty fine(s) and community service. Jmo

    • samael

      Good afternoon Boo

      I agree with you about “pre emptive” .

      I am anxious to see how the judicial system stands up for the frontline peace officers. I am truly hoping she gets more than a pat on her diamond encrusted wrist, but you’re probably right..community service..I think that’s what robert downey jr. did the first offence as well. And that is what KimR did for kicking an officer.

      • Boo

        Hi Sam,
        You’re probably right, a pat on the wrist, seems how these cases go. Lu will probably get probation for a year and charges will be dropped if she meets all the criteria during that time, along with keeping her nose clean.

        • samael

          Boo, this is so annoying for me….I can imagine what the police officer’s think of our (U.S.A. and Canada – we do this too)

          Some say it is part of the peace officers job , I know I don’t agree with that, I think no matter what amount is in the bank account, each should be dealt with equally, threaten a police officer should equal a viable consequence! nope.

          • Boo

            Oh I agree, but unfortunately it never seems to work out that way.

  • Gurrrrl – that hates soggy

    Guuurrrlll Please – As a fabulous hooka myself who has been to court mandated “rehab” for one two many afternoon cocktails – the only thing Luann is going to learn is how much she misses happy hour.

    • holy cannoli

      ??

    • Rain

      That is very very funny , thank you ???

  • Khipp
  • ~Medusa~

    I don’t think Luann always had a “drinking problem.” She could hold her own in all the Housewives episodes. I thought she had a hollow leg. This recent incident indicates that Luann may NOW have a problem. People change. So does their tolerance to certain substances. I hope she’s successful in fixing whatever is wrong. However, I will forever miss the FUN & Cool drunkish Lu. Nobody fell into the bushes as gracefully as she did.

  • mtrae9

    Good, Luann needs professional help. Anyone who falls into bushes because she is too drunk to stand up is in trouble. I’m sure Luann (and/or her attorney) is hoping this voluntary treatment is going to help her when she goes to court!

  • September24

    Lu should take Victoria with her.

    • michers

      Oh September coming out the cut lol!!!

  • samael

    wow Jax Taylor’s dad passed away last night ( he had cancer) R.I.P.

    https://radaronline.com/videos/jax-taylor-father-dies-cancer/

    • michers

      Awww . Hate that

      • samael

        me too bud – glad they were able to have christmas together.

        • michers

          Yeah , true

  • VtheFashionista

    Poor thing. Seems like that marriage to Tom really took a toll on her.

  • ??????Ð??Ð?????

    Can we put this story to bed? I find it boring, not sure why. Normally I find HW’s drama pretty entertaining and fun to snark on but this story doesn’t do it for me, it’s just sad and pathetic, a middle aged women spiraling down.

    • Rain

      Exactly

    • michers

      Ding ding ding ! Agree

  • samael

    This is off topic – MDLLA – realtor – Tracy – just filed for divorce

    http://www.tmz.com/2017/12/29/million-dollar-listing-star-tracy-tutor-maltas-files-for-divorce/

    I am surprised – I didn’t like how he made Tracy feel about thinking her daughter was in grade 3 – this week we find out the daughter is
    actually in grade 2…as Tracy said!

    • ??????Ð??Ð?????

      Thanks sameal! Not surprised, she seemed pretty checked out of the marriage and they interacted like friends who tolerate each other because they happen to live together. I find her annoying as well.

      • samael

        you’re welcome Fiddle Dee Dee

        I like that she is confident and handles the realtor/buyer and seller – appropriately. I like that she dumped that dude who refused to lower his price.

        I didn’t like that the hubby made her feel horrible “working mom much”..that was horrible. she didn’t even make a big
        deal out of the fact that hubby was wrong.

        I like that she has whacky celb friends. what do you find annoying?

        • ??????Ð??Ð?????

          IDK, she’s just too much for me, too loud, too in your face and her voice grates on my nerves. Kind of superficial and in reality she has to have those qualities to move the kind of real estate she does. She just doesn’t work for me in general.

          • samael

            I understan!d. We each have our likes…my dislike on MDLLA is Josh – the new dad! Even though Heather (holy crap does she ever whine alot) knew how it is to be a realtor..trying to get Josh to see the same, seemed impossible, I think now that he is a dad..he will probably change his tune..not sure

            • ??????Ð??Ð?????

              See, I absolutely love J Altman but I know I’m in the minority. I like Heather as well. I’m happy for them and their new bundle of joy. Personally, if I was Heather, I would be very hesitant to have children with him and not because I don’t think he won’t be a great father but he’s married to his work. It will be a big bone of contention for them and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the demise of their marriage at some point. I would never wish it on them but I think Heather is deluding herself as far as Josh being able to be more of a family man.

              • samael

                Josh is 100% realtor- he is cut throat, just like all of them at one point have shown us. I too believe it will be a hard task for Josh to be the dad that a new born needs. I hope they have an marriage that the child will benefit from.

                For me, I believe the dimise of the marriage – will be due to Heather nagging and nudging and guilt tripping Josh – which in effect supports your thoughts..Josh is all realtor.

                • ??????Ð??Ð?????

                  Agreed. Have you noticed Madison has had some major face work done?

                  • samael

                    YES!

                    Madison is my complete fav! but..this season – he is acting so weird..almost guilty about

                    – his boyfriend
                    – his boyfriends age
                    – introducing his boyfriend to family
                    – moving his boyfriend in

                    Usually, there I am say “Go Mad!”..nope, to me, due to his behavior, he seems slimey…and that sux…cuz being a cougar rocks! Wish he would stop sounding so “slimey”…

                    • ??????Ð??Ð?????

                      I’ve never liked him. I hated the way he treated Heather. He’s also whiny and another voice that gets on my nerves. He’s also anorexic, it’s the reason his face was looking so haggard and hence the facial work he probably felt he needed. He’s much too young to start doing such procedures.

                    • samael

                      I’m really glad that both heather and Mad – agreed they both handled the situation wrong. I agree, that ‘s something else I didn’t consider – getting procedres – due to young boyfriend..I really thought Madison was confident.

                    • ~~ La erik ~~

                      I don’t think Madison is an attractive looking guy. He has issues and that helped to make him unattractive.

                    • ~~ La erik ~~

                      And I hate the way he dresses! Meh!

                    • ??????Ð??Ð?????

                      Completely agree!!

                    • Rain

                      I’m not digging his amber alert boyfriend ! Even though I love Madison , he’s losing me this season

                    • ??????Ð??Ð?????

                      The boy toy seems so dummmmb, what’s up with that? I can’t do dumb, don’t care how good looking it is.

                    • Rain

                      He’s not even good looking IMO ?. The scenes with the boy and Madison’s family were PAINFUL !!!

                    • ??????Ð??Ð?????

                      No, he isn’t good looking, I agree. But Madison seems to think he’s sex on a stick. He looks slow. I want to use a certain word but don’t want to offend. I think you know what I mean.

                    • Rain

                      ??? I think the kid is on something if you ask me . I’m so disappointed, I why couldn’t he be like Fredrik and pick a MAN ?

                      And would it kill him to leave some hair on his body? He looks like a sphinx cat

                    • ??????Ð??Ð?????

                      LOL!! I always pictured Madison as a bottom, I guess he wanted to be a top for once?

                    • Rain

                      They’re both bottoms if you ask me, so is Flagg ! Apparently there is a severe top shortage ?. My friend told me a funny joke ‘what do you call a top in SF ?’ Answer : a tourist !! ???

                    • ??????Ð??Ð?????

                      Teehee, so SF is full of bottoms, good to know!!!

                      Oh yeah, Flagg is a definite bottom but isn’t his soon to be ex-husband (my personal opinion, not fact) a bottom as well? They all seem like bottoms, hahahaha!

                    • Rain

                      I think Bobby is a top, in his shy quiet way !! ??? SF bottoms are definitely more butch , generally speaking ! Now , Fredrik’s husband is a TOP !! ?

                      If I were gay, I’d be the best power bottom in the state ! Yeah baby yeah

                    • michers

                      LOL

                    • ~Medusa~

                      I like Madison, too. He’s sweet & ethical.

                    • samael

                      he is cool! and his clientele..$$$$..he was so crushed when his dog passed away!

                    • ~Medusa~

                      I remember the dog funeral.
                      I love to see the Malibu properties that Madison represents. They all look like vacation homes, rather than primary residences.

                    • samael

                      yup, I couldn’t believe the client was willing to pay $100K per month! I like watching to see what the sq footage is and the actual cost! wow

                    • ~Medusa~

                      The prices are crazy!!!! Imagine paying $250K to rent a house per month!!!! Oh, the problems of the super rich.

                  • michers

                    Yes sorry to butt in lol

                    • ??????Ð??Ð?????

                      No worries, butt away. All opinions are welcome!!

                • michers

                  I think he was taught by Mo , Kyle’s hubs

                  • samael

                    for reals mich! thanks thats good to know! I wonder why the “twin” dudes don’t get cut throat..they’ve been with him for awhile now and they seem to be doing small sales still.

                    • michers

                      I love them !!!!! James and David , yes? I would be friends with them lol

                    • samael

                      me too mich! personally I think they are too nice! They would be cool to hang out with!

                    • michers

                      For sure !

                • ~Medusa~

                  I hate Altman. Josh is obnoxious, LOUD, narcissistic & fugly as sin. I don’t see any good qualities in him. NONE.

              • michers

                I love Heather and I’m hoping the baby calms Josh’s ass down lol.

                • ??????Ð??Ð?????

                  I think he will calm down a little but he’ll always be a workaholic. Who knows, maybe he will change his ways, stranger things have happened.

          • Rain

            I had this discussion with Medusa . I don’t think her husband meant that at all , at least that wasn’t my impression

    • ~Medusa~

      Whaaaatttt? That was fast. Tracy wasn’t even on the show long enough to be struck by the Blahvo curse.

      • samael

        Hey Medusa!

        right?..so..she started the show with a troubled marriage..cuz …on film, they are lovey dovey

  • Rain

    I like her but she’s a bit too old for such shenanigans ? do better in 2018

  • samael

    Isn’t this the template – ala – Robert Downey Jr…7 times?

    Good luck to Lu! I know her cast will bash her all season about this..that’s a given.
    I am surprised about the timing, aren’t they filming right now?

    – taping her going into rehab
    – wonder if this changes her to friend status?

    Lu will overcome this,and succeed – but she needs to address the serious issue of threatening the life of a peace officer! unacceptable!

    • samael

      I forgot to add

      rumor out there that “whore” is throwing an “unwedding” party on their anniversary! proof money can’t by anyone class!

      • ??????Ð??Ð?????

        I read that as well, Tom throwing a party on the anniversary of their wedding. Tacky asshole!

        • samael

          ugghh..he is the “whore” he presents himself to be..now “sources” are denying that it is an Unwedding party..but it will be at the same place they got married! he is such a douche

      • swizzle

        The headline on that story was so misleading. He’s have a birthday party. His friends and the writer are the ones saying anything about an unwedding party. Not a Tom fan, but I’m sick of misleading headlines.

  • Kirby

    She is genuinely remorseful so let’s turn this around Lu ??

    • Rain

      ???

  • holy cannoli

    This statement to me, is a hell of a lot better than the other one LuLu posted after her sloppy drunk ass behavior that night. At least to me, she actually owned her behavior, ( I didn’t see her blame palm beach, her divorce, etc) and apologized. That’s all she can do.
    Get your act together LuLu. Best of luck

    • Kirby

      I think she will holy ??

    • samael

      Good afternoon Holy

      I agree, this seems like the actual words of her feelings about her behavior.

    • Marlee

      Hi Holy! I came here to snark and say that took long enough. After reading her statement though, I feel like it was a heartfelt, honest ownership.

      I’ve only started watching RHoNY last season so I don’t know the characters as well as many of you but I do like LuLu. I know I’m in the minority but I really felt sorry for her for ending up with the pig called Tom.

    • michers

      Agree holy but I’d like to add a few things : she’s not dumb and way old enough to know better in that , she’s screeched everyone else had drinking issues while its apparent she has since before doing this show .
      Secondly every ” star” thinks is the answer after getting arrested and in trouble … She knew her ass got lit too much but since being arrested now is getting ” treatment ” . Ok , well I hope if she had a problem this fixes it ! Wish her luck 🙂

    • swizzle

      This statement and going to rehab were all the work of her lawyers. You can hear the lawyer speak in the statement. And of course going to rehab preemptively looks good when she has to stand in front of the judge next time.
