LuAnn DeLesseps Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Luann de Lesseps Rejects Plea Deal! What’s Next for the Countess?

Apparently Luann’s embarrassing case may be dragged out longer than we thought!

In a shocking turn of events, Luann has decided that she would like to proceed with her case vs. accepting the plea deal. Lu has pleaded ‘not guilty’ to all charges following her drunken arrest with many then assuming that she would accept the plea deal. After appearing in court on Wednesday, the Bravo star’s attorney set a status check for April 13 and signed a waiver of speedy trial on her behalf.

What’s still unclear is the terms of the proposed agreement, as the details were not disclosed.

The former Countess, was arrested in December and had a slew of charges against her including disorderly intoxication, battery of an officer, resisting arrest and making threats against a public servant. Fans were stunned as it all happened around her (would be) first wedding anniversary, so many thought she would be laying low instead of getting arrested. Lu blamed her behavior on “long-buried emotions” from being in Palm Beach (the site of her wedding.) Shortly after, Lu checked herself into a treatment center and decided to hire a completely sober staff to help with her sobriety.

If I were Lu I would want this to go away as soon as possible; therefore I’m interested in the details of the plea deal as she did not accept it. Luann has been on her best behavior after leaving the treatment center and I’m rooting for her to keep it up. She’s had a rough go at it and I think she has finally realized that her behavior needs to change. After seeing some embarrassing drunken behavior on RHONY I think she has realized enough is enough.

Thoughts on the recent updates in Lu’s case?
