RHONY Luann de Lesseps Says She Is Done With Drinking
RHONY star Luann de Lesseps says that she is done with drinking, but didn’t mention that she had given up smoking weed. After her divorce from husband of less than a year, Tom D’Agostino, Luann said she was emotionally wiped out.
“At this point in my life, I don’t want to drink, nor do I have interest in drinking. Rehab saved my life. It was the best thing that I could do for myself and I’m so glad I did that.”
Luann de Lesseps says that focusing on her cabaret act has given her new focus, and the support of her friends has meant the world.
“I found my calling, which is the cabaret show… It encompasses everything I like to do. I love to sing, I love to tell jokes and I love to hold court and be the hostess. Cabaret is the perfect venue for me.”

Count de Lesseps reached out to Luann to scold her for her arrest, according to mutual friends.

“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.”
