Bethenny Frankel LuAnn DeLesseps The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

BREAKING NEWS: Luann de Lesseps Checks BACK Into Rehab!

Luann de Lesseps has checked herself back into rehab!

The Real Housewives of New York star is seeking treatment for the second time this year after completing an alcohol treatment program back in January.

According to PEOPLE, Luann “has only authorized costar Bethenny Frankel to speak on her behalf” which Bethenny did in a statement to the publication. 

“This weekend, Luann was surrounded by her girlfriends and decided — with their support — that in light of recent circumstances, it is the healthiest choice for her not to attend Tuesday’s reunion taping so that she can continue in her healing process,” Bethenny told People. “Luann is now surrounded by a core group of people who truly have her best interests at heart and who are working to make sure she gets the help she needs. Bravo has been very supportive of Luann during this time. It’s a brave and honest decision by her, and everyone is rallying around her and wants the best for her.” 

As for Bravo, they tell PEOPLE, “Bravo supports Luann’s decision to focus on her health. She is part of the Bravo family and we continue to stand by her as she copes with this challenging situation. At this time, we hope everyone will respect her privacy.”

In fact, during last week’s epsiode of RHONY, Luann admitted that she is still tempted to drink.
“It’s not easy to give up drinking because it’s such a mental thing you’ve learned for so long. It’s like brushing your teeth. So it’s not the anxiety of not drinking — it’s the habit of not drinking that you’re getting rid of,” Luann explained.
However, it seems that recent drama in her personal life may have pushed Luann’s struggles to the breaking point.
“Recent additional family stress was a catalyst to her taking a break,” Bethenny admits.
The Real Housewives of New York star first entered rehab back in January 2018 following her drunken Christmas Eve arrest.
At the time Luann told fans, “I intend to turn this unfortunate incident into a positive life-changing event,” which she really seemed to do for a while.
It will be very odd not to have Luann at the reunion. I think the last time we’ve seen a Real Housewife miss a reunion was when Jacqueline Laurita skipped the RHONJ season 3 reunion.
