The most shocking news of 2017 was probably RHONY star Luann de Lesseps’ arrest in Florida on Christmas Eve. As we reported, de Lesseps was arrested on charges of battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and crimes against a person.
“The Countess” appeared in court early and was released on her own recognizance. She reportedly slammed a door and kicked at least one police officer during the incident early Sunday, an assistant state’s attorney told the court.
“I’m going to kill you all,” the state’s attorney said De Lesseps told people prior to her arrest.
Now, Luann has revealed she is going to a rehabilitation facility. She took to Instagram, writing, “After the events of last Saturday night in Palm Beach, I am truly embarrassed. I have decided to seek professional guidance and will be voluntarily checking into an alcohol treatment center. I intend to turn this unfortunate incident into a positive life changing event. Once again, I sincerely apologize for my actions. I have the greatest respect for police officers and the job they do. My actions alleged in the police report do not reflect my core values and my law abiding character. I am so grateful for the love and support that I am receiving from my family, friends and loyal supporters.”
What does Luann’s ex-husband, Tom D’Agostino, think of this news? Apparently, he is shocked and sad. A source tells People Tom “felt really sad for Luann and her family that they had to go through this over the holidays,” and he was “shocked” that she was in town since she has “no ties” of her own to the Florida city where the former couple spent time together.
What was your reaction to Lu’s arrest?
