LuAnn DeLesseps The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Luann de Lesseps ‘Absolutely’ Believes Her Arrest Was a Form of Bullying

It’s been almost two years since Luann de Lesseps‘ shocking Christmas Eve arrest but the Real Housewives of New York star still has some thoughts on the unfortunate event.

In a new interview with In Touch, the Countess reveals that her 2017 arrest was “absolutely” a form of bullying by police.

“I mean I got arrested for being drunk in my own hotel,” Luann said.

“Wouldn’t you [call it that]?” she asked.

Luann can’t say whether or not her antics, which included disorderly conduct and battery on an officer, were escalated because of her status as a reality TV star but believes it might have something to do with it.

“Who knows,” she mused.

She then points out that her arresting officer is no saint and has been known to make false arrests.

“I just know that the police officer that arrested me got arrested. He’s in jail for making false arrests,” the RHONY star adds.

However, Luann isn’t seeking vengeance against the officer and owns up to her own bad behavior that night.

“You know, I don’t really wish revenge on anybody. I think things happen for a reason and for me, getting off probation and having this happen is vindicating in a certain way. But I do take the responsibility of not acting the right way in front of a policeman, absolutely, but I think it was handled very — it could’ve been handled better or differently,” she explained.

“It’s in the past. It’s in the past,” she continued. “I hold myself accountable.”

The Real Housewives of New York will return to Bravo for season 12 in early 2020.
