Luann de Lesseps is being very “uncool” when it comes to her sobriety and probation.
Per Page Six, “The Florida Department of Corrections accused the “Real Housewives of New York” star of not taking her probation seriously and is unsure how to proceed with her case moving forward.”
According to court documents, Luann was ordered: “not to drink during her 12 month probation period.”
However, “per her New York Probation Officer, [she had] an alcohol test conducted on 04/21/2019. [She] admitted to drinking 2 glasses of mimosas after a performance she had in Chicago.”
After the results were confirmed, the Countess was informed she could “immediately enroll in outpatient treatment” but she “declined due to her touring schedule.”
Luann also “declined to be fitted for an alcohol ankle monitoring device” claiming it was “too intrusive.”
Meanwhile, this turns out to be the second time Luann has violated her probation after she “failed to provide sufficient documentation of completed AA meetings.”
As part of her probation, Luann was required to attend two AA meetings a week but has only attended five documented meetings so far.
“It appears to [the court] that [she] is not serious about her sobriety or the orders of this Court,” the officer argued in the court documents. “As stated on previous notification, [she] has used her unlimited travel as a reason to be noncompliant with her conditions of supervision.”
In another document, the officer added: “in order to effectively address [her] current relapse, de Lesseps has to be ‘available’ to participate.”
The court has not ruled on how to move forward with Luann’s case but as of now, her probation is set to end on August 28.
The Real Housewives of New York star was initially arrested on Christmas Eve 2017 following a drunken meltdown where she attacked and threatened to kill a police officer.
Shortly after, Luann headed to rehab for alcohol addiction. Then in July 2018, she relapsed and headed back to treatment in lieu of attending the RHONY season 10 reunion. Luann’s sobriety and cabaret tour have been her main storyline for season 11 of RHONY.
I’m sorry it doesn’t seem to me like Luann is taking her sobriety seriously at all. Seems like she’s caught up in the cabaret of it all.
Luann should take a page out her own book: “Be cool, don’t be all uncool.”
The Real Housewives of New York airs on Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
