Luann de Lesseps Reflects On Her 2017 Palm Beach Arrest!

Luann de Lesseps took to Instagram to reflect on how far she has come since her arrest during the 2017 holidays. “Life is full of surprises. Last Christmas I was in a totally different place in my life,” she wrote alongside a video in which she appears onstage at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, New Jersey, as the audience applauds during her cabaret performance.

“This Christmas, I took a challenge and performed #countessandfriends 5 NIGHTS IN A ROW,” she continued. “Thank you everyone for coming out and sharing your time with me. I see and hear all of you (you all constantly shout out JOVANI with passion). Love you all and see you in 2019.”

She added the hashtags #lifeisacabaret and #sograteful.


As previously reported, Luann was charged in January with the felony of resisting an officer with violence, as well as misdemeanor charges of trespassing and disorderly intoxication, stemming from her arrest in Palm Beach, Florida, on Christmas Eve. She was released on her own recognizance 10 hours later and pleaded not guilty on Dec. 29. Back in May, de Lesseps accepted a plea deal.

In July 2018, de Lesseps skipped on filming the Season 10 reunion of RHONY as she checked back into rehab. 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 also 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.
