Luann de Lesseps now claims that she was drugged before her arrest on Christmas Eve and that’s what caused her to be led away from the Colony Hotel in handcuffs.
The Real Housewives of New York star recently appeared on The Dr. Oz Show and admits that she spent Christmas Eve drinking martinis and sipping rosé with a friend.
However, Luann also claims that there’s a point in the evening when everything goes blank.
While most would believe Luann simply drank too much, the Countess thinks she was drugged.
“I almost think that somebody slipped me something because I don’t remember a thing after that,” Luann confesses.
Luann explains that she was on her way to a wedding in Chile and was simply passing through Palm Beach for a quick visit. The Countess also admits she did drink more than usual that day.
“And so I checked into the Colony, to make a long story short. I had a rosé at lunch with my girlfriend, we split a bottle of Whispering Angel, which is normal,” she told Dr. Oz. “And then there were some people there that were fans, so they send me more rosé. So I drank more than I usually would.”
After the rosé, Luann confesses that she moved on to martinis before heading to a friends house.
“And on the way, we stop and have not one martini but two. So, by the time I get to the Colony, I was pretty sloshed and then I don’t know.”
At this point, Luann’s story shifts a bit and she backs off her earlier claims that she drank more than usual that night.
“That’s kind of a regular kind of thing. You know what I mean? In terms of the drinking path that I was on. So I almost think that somebody slipped me something because I don’t remember a thing after that.”
We all know the rest, Luann was arrested after being found with a man in a hotel room that wasn’t hers. Luann also allegedly shoved a cop.
Currently, Luann awaits a speedy trial after she rejected the offered plea deal back in February. She faces several charges but maintains she’s “not guilty.”
I don’t know what to believe but I may have some Lu scoop that could put this all into perspective. Personally, I think Lu may be painting a picture for her defense. Why didn’t she claim to be drugged back in December?
Thoughts on Lu’s interview with Dr. Oz? Do you think Lu was drugged? Is Lu trying to build herself a case to use as a get out of jail free card? Why do you think Lu rejected the plea deal? Could Luann face jail time? Will Luann be made an example of?
