LuAnn DeLesseps The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Luann de Lesseps Explains Why She Started Drinking Again After Being Sober!

Luann de Lesseps and alcohol don’t mix (falling in bushes, flirting with pirates and Palm Beach arrests ring a bell?) Despite having her ups and downs,with alcohol in the past, Lu has been drinking out in the open again – so what gives?

On a recent appearance of WWHL, Lu was asked if the sobriety was all for the camera. Lu responded honestly, saying she was only sober because she was legally forced to be and didn’t have long term plans to stay sober. Lu denied stating that it was all for the cameras, answering the question: “No, I had to be sober because I was on probation and if I had a drink I could go to jail. That’s a heavy thing to live with. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to go through and when I got through to the other side I had the choice myself to decide if I wanted to drink or not and I felt in a good place and like I was back in the driver’s seat. Now I don’t have anyone watching over my shoulder except me.” 

Check out the clip below:

With everything she has at stake I’m honestly shocked that she would still drink (especially so open!) She is a grown woman and able to make her own decisions – I just hope it doesn’t lead to an embarrassing public meltdown again.

RHONY airs Thursdays on Bravo.

Thoughts on Lu drinking again? Do you think she should lay off the bottle or do you think she has grown from her past mistakes?
