Luann de Lesseps Reveals She Had ‘Wake-Up’ Call To Stop Drinking Again; Says “I’m Totally Back On Track And I Feel Really Good”

Luann de Lesseps revealed why she decided to stop drinking again. “When you don’t remember how you got home, that’s a wake-up call.” the Real Housewives of New York City star told Us Weekly. “It happens to a lot of people — more often than not — and people don’t want to admit it.”

The Bravo reality star admits she started drinking again during the COVID-19 pandemic. She reveals that there was a time during her relapse where she woke up and couldn’t recall the previous night’s events.

“It’s a scary thing. When it happened to me, I said, ‘You know, that’s it,’” she added. “Relapse is a part of recovery and each time I get closer to being the person that I want to be, and that’s someone who is sober. I ultimately am so much happier when I don’t drink.”

Luann noted that the more she abstains from alcohol, the less she misses it. “I’m totally back on track and I feel really good. It doesn’t bother me as much as it used to, and I feel like every time, I get to a different place and it’s a better place,” she said. “I’m lucky because I was able to reel it in really quick and just get back on track.”

The mother-of-two added viewers will see her struggle with her sobriety in Season 13. “I wanted to come into the season really strong in my sobriety. And that’s where I was really honest about it. I relapsed, but I’m back, and this is where I want to be,” de Lesseps said. “I just feel a lot stronger … with the support of the sober community.”
