Luann de Lesseps Breaks Her Silence After Checking Into Rehab: “Never Regret A Day In Your Life”

Luann de Lesseps appears to have no regrets about checking back into rehab. The Real Housewives of New York City star shared a photo of a picturesque boardwalk sunset on her Instagram Story on  Friday, July 20, according to Us Weekly along with the quote:

“Never regret a day in your life: good days give happiness, bad days give experience, worst days give lessons, and best days give memories.”

The post comes less than a week after Bravo confirmed that the former Countess had checked back into rehab following six months of sobriety. Luann was unable to attend The Real Housewives of New York City Season 10 reunion taping since she checked back into rehab.

Andy Cohen and some of Luann's fellow Housewives came to her defense and showed their support.

Tinsley revealed that she was "totally in shock" when she heard about Lu's struggles during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Wednesday night.

Tinsley went on to say that she was proud to see Luann come out on top after her arrest in Palm Beach, Florida last Christmas Eve, just as she had done following her own brush with the law in 2016. "I had a mugshot in Palm Beach, too, and I just feel like I turned it around, and I felt like she was doing that. I felt like the cabaret show is so amazing, and I was just so proud of her," Tinsley said. "It's just sad. I wish her the best, and I hope she can work everything out."

"It's so sad that she's not here. I feel so badly for her. I really had no idea that it is as serious, I guess, as it is, and I feel really sad for her, and I hope she gets well. And she's taking obviously the right steps to do so," Tinsley told The Daily Dish prior to filming the reunion. "A relapse happens all the time and is part of sort of the program of it. So we'll see, and hopefully she can get out of it, be happy, and be fine."

"I literally cried over it. I cried when I heard," Dorinda Medley told Bravo's The Daily Dish. "I wrote her a text, a quick text, but I haven't heard back, so I'm just gonna pray for her, think about her. She's here in thought."

She also added about Luann not attending this season's reunion, "I really feel bad that Lu's not gonna be there."

Meanwhile, Luann also got some love and support for the OG of the OC herself, Vicki Gunvalson.

"That makes me sad," the Real Housewives of Orange County star told E!'s Daily Pop. "I think the whole exposure of going out and trying to stay sober and not have a cocktail when you have an issue is really difficult—especially in the social scene that we're all in. So I'm sorry to hear that."

Andy Cohen addressed the matter on his Sirium XM radio show, Radio Andy Live. “[Luann is] making the decision that is healthy for herself and you can do nothing but support that,” Andy said, according to Us Weekly. “She’s been through it. We send our love to Luann and support our decision.”

A Bravo spokesperson confirmed Luann's return to rehab: “Bravo supports Luann’s decision to focus on her health. She is part of the Bravo family and we continue to stand by her as she copes with this challenging situation. At this time, we hope everyone will respect her privacy.”

Luann's co-star Bethenny Frankel has also shown her support. The Skinnygirl mogul, whom Luann authorized to speak on her behalf, also spoke about her friend to PEOPLE. “This weekend, Luann was surrounded by her girlfriends and decided — with their support — that in light of recent circumstances, it is the healthiest choice for her not to attend Tuesday’s reunion taping so that she can continue in her healing process,” Bethenny said. “Luann is now surrounded by a core group of people who truly have her best interests at heart and who are working to make sure she gets the help she needs.”

“Recent additional family stress was a catalyst to her taking a break,” Frankel says.

Luann decision to return to rehab comes days after it was reported that her first ex-husband, Alexandre de Lesseps, her daughter, Victoria de Lesseps, and son, Noel de Lesseps, filed a lawsuit against her over an $8 million house sale. According to court documents, she breached a stipulation of settlement in her divorce by failing to create a trust “for the benefit of her two children.”

A source told Us Weekly that de Lesseps “went to treatment to deal with her emotional trauma from her marriages and using alcohol as a coping mechanism” and that she “thinks she can add drinking slowly back into her life once she feels healed.”
