The Real Housewives of New York casting is up in the air right now. Luann de Lesseps is opening about her future on the RHONY, as well as her biggest regrets. On season 11 Luann went through a lot in her life. She was focusing on staying sober after her arrest and doing her cabaret show, Countess and Friends. Luann told E! News that she was misunderstood. Luann explained, “I think lack of communication—the women didn’t really understand me. They didn’t understand what I was going through. I didn’t want to focus on my sobriety and focus on the drinking thing, so I never really talked about it. Maybe that was kind of mistake in terms of them understanding me and in terms of them sympathizing with me a bit.”
Luann added, “I think they thought I was insensitive to their feelings, but really what I was doing was taking care of myself.” As far as casting goes, Luann shared, “I really take it day by day. I never know from season to season if I’m going to be around the next season, it’s how I live my life. I never plan how I’m going to get over the bridge, I just start at the beginning of the bridge and figure out along the way. That’s kind of how I live my life.”
Luann told Us Weekly this summer that she was sober. She said, “That’s amazing. It’s been difficult, and doing it in the public eye has been even more difficult, so I take it day by day. I’m at the point where I can finally go to a party now and not drink, and I’m OK with that.” Luann also said that Demi Lovato has inspired her because of her great strength. Luann shared, “You know who’s really been inspirational also, is Demi Lovato. Because she’s been very public about her struggle and I think it’s important. I think a lot of people are struggling and they don’t know how to help themselves.”
Andy Cohen has really been there for Luann throughout this all. She said he “has also been very supportive.”
Luann also noted this summer that she was writing and would possibly come out with a tell-all book.
I think that Luann will be back on the show next season! I’m happy to hear that she’s doing well. I’m looking forward to watching all of the ladies on the next season of the RHONY.
