Luann de Lesseps: Already Filming for RHONY in Case She Goes to Prison!

Within less than a year’s time, Luann de Lesseps got married, got divorced, and got arrested on multiple felonies.

For a person, that’s disastrous. But for a reality star? That’s amazing fodder for television.

And producers are reportedly so enthused about Luann’s upcoming court drama that they’re pulling out all of the stops to capture her story … before she potentially spends time behind bars.

Because 2017 wasn’t surreal enough, Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps got arrested for kicking a police officer.

In Florida, of course.

Apparently, she went to the wrong hotel room and refused to leave it. When police were called, she locked herself in the bathroom … and went so far as to slam a door on a police officer’s face.

Here’s some advice, folks: don’t do that. 

Luann checked herself into rehab for alcohol, a great way to either work on getting better or at least make it appear that she’s addressing her behavior.

But she’s due in court later this month, after being charged with four felonies.

Now, Luann tweeted out her apologies, sounding mortified, revealing that being in Palm Beach had brought up some powerful negative emotions.

Hey, we get that. It’s not an excuse, per say, but you don’t need old marriage drama for Florida to have that effect on you. Just saying.

Honestly, the wildest part of that whole situation is the details of Luann’s arrest.

Not the violence or the threats of violence — that’s, you know, not actually funny. But the fact that she slipped her handcuffs.

Either some PR-conscious officer cuffed her a little too gently, or Luann is a serious escape artist. Dang.

Some feared that Luann de Lesseps’ arrest might get her fired from The Real Housewives of New York.

If you were one of those worried, you can probably rest easy.

All reality television is essentially the TV version of a messy b–ch who lives for drama. The wilder that someone’s real-life highs and lows are, the better television they’l make.

Besides, Luann’s arrest isn’t exactly secret, which makes it free publicity for the show.

There is such a thing as bad publicity, don’t get us wrong, but this wasn’t it.

RadarOnline reports that producers are already working to make sure that Luann’s storyline is captured on film.

“Bravo is NOT filming at the moment but producer have reached out to her and asked that she document what’s going on in her life.”

Does that mean that she’s filming, like, confessional segments on her phone or a webcam? We’re not sure. No matter what the camera quality, though, it’s bound to be interesting.

“They need as much home footage as possible to edit Luann and her troubles into the show.”

That makes a lot of sense.

That same source goes on to assure us all that Luann’s status as a Real Housewife is safe.

“If anything, this incident has secured her job.”

Though it has, to be clear, endangered her actual real life.

“The producers love nothing better than real life drama and with the exception of wedding and divorces, nothing is better on reality TV than a court hearing that could result in jail.”

Luann might be worried about her future — with four felony charges, that’s justified. But producers feel differently:

“They are giddy with excitement about what will happen to Luann.”

Well, that’s show business.


Luann de Lesseps Checks Into Rehab, Releases Personal Statement

Luann de Lesseps has taken the first step toward recovery:

The Real Housewives of New York City cast member has admitted she has a problem.

Just a few days after she was arrested for some very embarrassing and troubling behavior in Palm Beach, de Lesseps has announced that she’s checking into rehab.

She acknowledges that she needs professional help.

“After the events of last Saturday night in Palm Beach, I am truly embarrassed,” says the long-time Bravo star via statement, adding:

“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.”

We certainly wish Luann the best.

And we don’t mean to pass judgment, nor can we truly understand what’s been going on with her…

… but the events from last weekend do seem like enough on their own to warrant this step.

de Lesseps has been charged with FOUR felonies after she and an ex-lover broke into a Florida hotel room and refused to leave at the behest of a security guard.

After police were called to the scene, Luann locked herself in a bathroom and pushed an officer upon her escape.

She then somehow managed to break free from her handcuffs and cause more mayhem, yelling about how she’s going to kill everyone.

Seriously, check out the crazy arrest details HERE.

The trip to Palm Beach was Luann’s first time back in that city after she married Tom D’Agostino there.

The pair split just a few months later and Luann cites this trauma as the basis for her drunken breakdown.

This is what she Tweeted upon being released from custody:

I want to offer my most sincere apologies to anyone that I might have offended with my behavior. This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding and being here brought up buried emotions.

I am committed to a transformative and hopeful 2018.

She is due in court for a hearing on January 25 – and she will NOT be fired from Bravo.

We wish Luann well.


Luann de Lesseps to Be Fired from The Real Housewives Due to Arrest?

Following some rather inexcusable, embarrassing and illegal behavior, Luann de Lesseps is in major trouble with the law.

But this is the question on the minds of fans around the country:

Is she also in trouble with Bravo executives?

Over this past holiday weekend, de Lesseps was arrested on five charges, four of which are felonies.

During a very drunken escapade, the reality star allegedly attacked a police officer, resisted arrest and threatened to kill everyone around her.

The incident took place in Palm Beach.

According to legal documents, Luann and an ex-lover broke into a room at the Colony Hotel.

After a security guard demanded she leave, de Lesseps locked herself in the bathroom.

Police were then called to the scene and de Lesseps supposedly shoved one of them after exiting said bathroom, prior to breaking free from her handcuffs and screaming:

I’m going to f-cking kill you!

Details of the arrest really are pretty insane.

The four felonies with which Luann has been charged are:

  • Battery on a law enforcement officer.
  • Resisting arrest with violence.
  • Two counts of corruption by threat.

She’s due in court for a hearing on January 25.

It’s certainly fair to wonder how this arrest will impact Luann’s future on The Real Housewives of New York City.

She’s been a regular cast member since 2008 and it’s nearly impossible to imagine the show without her.

Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your viewpoint), it doesn’t sound as though you’ll need to do so.

“It won’t [jeopardize her position on the show],” an insider tells Page Six of the arrest, explaining simply:

“Reality loves reality.”

There’s certainly evidence to back this up.

In 2014, Porsha Williams was arrested for speeding and driving with a suspended license. She remains on The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

In 2015, Teresa Giudice went to prison on fraud charges in 2015. She remains on The Real Housewives of New Jersey… and even got a raise upon her release!

Luann, meanwhile, married Tom D’Agostino in Palm Beach on December 31, 2016.

They got divorced just seven months later and she cited the trauma from this split as the basis for her actions over the weekend.

“I want to offer my most sincere apologies to anyone that I might have offended with my behavior,” Tweeted de Lesseps after her arrest, adding:

“This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding and being here brought up buried emotions.”

That’s for sure.


Luann de Lesseps Arrest: Crazy New Details Emerge!

We have a follow up on last week’s arrest of Luann de Lesseps.

And it’s pretty darn wild!

As previously reported, The Real Housewives of New York City cast member was taken into custody by police after she allegedly flipped out on them while drunk.

The reality star was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer; resisting arrest with violence; and two counts of corruption by threat at the time.

She’s in pretty big trouble with the law.

And we can understand why, considering the details that leaked online yesterday with the release of an official police report.

According to this document, De Lesseps and an unidentified male entered Room 407 at the Colony hotel in Palm Beach while a maid was completing turn-down service late Saturday night.

They were registered guests at the hotel, but were assigned to Room 327.

A security guard went to the room found the twosome in bed, telling de Lesseps that she had to leave.

But she wasn’t feeling it.

Following “multiple attempts to get both subjects to leave over a five minute period,” the guard called for assistance, which prompted a pair of cops to arrive around 9:20 p.m.

Once there, they found de Lesseps and her longtime friend, Julie Olson, in the room.

Both women “appeared to be highly intoxicated,” but at least Olson heeded orders to get the heck out.

Conversely, de Lesseps locked herself in the bathroom and refused to come out, the report outlines.

At last, the Bravo star opened the door (only after the guard started using a key on the lock, that is) – and then allegedly pushed one of the cops in the chest with her palm, prior to slamming the door on his face, “striking him in the forehead.”

Yikes, right?!?

So not cool at all.


After being handcuffed and placed in the back of a police cruiser, de Lesseps actually slipped out of the shackles and attempted to escape, yelling, “I’m going to f-cking kill you” as the cops subdued once more.

We’ll say it again, this time with even more emphasis:


de Lesseps kept claiming that she was “going to f-cking kill all of you” to both policemen as she was brought back to the Palm Beach police station and thrown into a holding cell, the report says. 

She was then released without bail on Sunday morning and ordered to appear in court next month.

LuAnn married Tom D’Agostino Jr. on December 31, 2016 in Palm Beach, only to get divorced a few months later.

In a Tweeted apology, she cited this marriage and break-up as the basis for her breakdown.

“I want to offer my most sincere apologies to anyone that I might have offended with my behavior,” she wrote, adding:

“This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding and being here brought up buried emotions. I am committed to a transformative and hopeful 2018.”

Hey, it can only go up from here for the star!


‘RHONY’ Star Luann de Lesseps Resurfaces for Christmas After Drunken Arrest

Luann de Lesseps played it cool for Christmas — hanging with family, and keeping a low profile … which was probably a good idea after her arrest this weekend. The “Real Housewives of New York City” star was seen hanging with her fam Monday at a…


Luann de Lesseps Arrested … for Kicking a Cop!

Ho, Ho, Ho?

For Luann de Lesseps this holiday season, it’s more like the following:

No, No, No.

The long-time Real Housewives of New York City cast member was arrested early Sunday morning in Palm Beach, Florida and charged with a number of crimes.

According to TMZ, E! News and other reliable sources, de Lesseps was taken into custody for being drunk and disorderly…

… and also for allegedly assaulting an officer of the law!


Insiders tell TMZ that Luann has been charged with five crimes, four of which are FELONIES:

– Battery on a law enforcement officer.

– Resisting arrest with violence.

– Two counts of corruption by threat.

The incident between the reality star and the police took place around 1:25 a.m. local time.

An assistant state’s attorney tells The Palm Beach Post that de Lesseps reportedly slammed a door and kicked at least one police officer, telling people around her:

“I’m going to kill you all.”

She was then placed under arrest.

After being taken to Palm Beach County Jail, the Bravo personality was released without bond.

It remains unclear what prompted the altercation; aside from an abundance of alcohol, that is.

The aforementioned publication also writes that during her court appearance today, Judge Ted Booras suggested she hire a defense attorney due to the serious nature of these charges.

“Don’t say anything,” he told the former countess, according to the newspaper.


The arrest took place nearly a year after the Bravo star married Tom D’Agostino Jr. in Palm Beach on New Year’s Eve.

They announced their divorce a mere seven months later amid rumors of D’Agostino’s infidelity.

For those unaware, Luann has a “Countess” title because she was married to Count Alexandre de Lesseps until their divorce in 2009.

She is due back in court on January 25.

Known as a singer, actress, model and author, Luann de Lesseps debuted on The Real Housewives of New York City in 2008./

She has been a regular ever since.

No word from anyone in her camp or anyone else associated with the series in the wake of this arrest. Not yet anyway.

We’ll update this story with more details as news breaks.


Tom D’Agostino: Already Dating After Split from Luann de Lesseps!

Luann de Lesseps and Tom D’Agostino are divorcing. Officially. After their short, short marriage, they’re not trying a trial separation but just ripping off the bandaid.

It’s such a sorry situation for Luann that even Bethenny Frankel feels sorry for her. And Bethenny Frankel isn’t exactly what you’d call a bleeding heart.

Apparently, things aren’t so hard on Tom D’Agostino. And, to absolutely no one’s surprise, Tom is reportedly already back to dating.

Hey, so, remember when Tom D’Agostino spoke to Us Weekly and told them that he and Luann had a lot of love between them and had no plans to split?

Well … we don’t want to be mean and say womp womp, but that sure didn’t last.

As it turns out, cheating on your fiance right before your engagement party doesn’t usually spell success for your marriage.

Basically everyone had warned Luann, but if she was a fool to marry Tom, then she was a fool who wanted to believe that love could conquer all obstacles and overcome any issues in their relationship.

There are worse dumb things to believe.

Overall, it seemed, Tom D’Agostino just had a wandering eye, and wandering other parts, and wasn’t going to let a little thing like marriage to a beautiful celebrity like Luann hold him back.

(It sounds like he might have some impulse-control issues, with a severe case of basically being immune to consequences and the entitlement that comes with that)

So, given that he was reportedly getting around during his engagement and marriage to Luann, it’s not really a shock to hear that he’s already back to dating openly.

Us Weekly reports that Tom D’Agostino is 

“Tom has been seeing a few of the women in his life, including Missy, but hasn’t rebounded with anyone in particular yet.”

That’s a reference to his ex-girlfriend, Missy Tool.

Us Weekly says that another source insists that Missy and Tom are “just friends.”

Overall, though, that sounds pretty consistent with Tom, though we’d point out that seeing a bunch of different women is fine … when you’re single.

As he is no0w.

The first source has more to add.

“He didn’t want to do any interviews until he sees Luann’s sit-down with Andy to see if she bad-mouths him. Tom is really trying to take the high road with the divorce.”

Tom and Luann filed jointly for divorce, so it makes sense for them to try to be amicable.

There was a rumor floating around towards the end of their marriage …

(Though the eight-month marriage was so brief that any part of it could also be said to be “right at the beginning”)

… That Luann had struck Tom, slapping him in a restaurant. That sounded a lot like domestic violence.

When asked about it, Luann had stated that she had grabbed his face during their conversation. That’s not okay either, but a lot less alarming.

Tom’s rumored cheating plagued their relationship almost from the beginning, to the point where it became a storyline on The Real Housewives of New York City.

Tom is said to have grown tired of his newfound spotlight and celebrity status that came with marrying a Real Housewife, though … many imagine that the true impetus behind the divorce was the cheating.

We wonder if Tom has ever considered that he should be in an open relationship?

If he wants the affection and stability of a committed partner but also wants to be free to hook up with different women, that’s totally possible.

Polyamorous relationships can take a lot of forms, and the simplest of them is a couple that’s in an open relationship where both partners love and support each other but also know that they don’t need to sneak around if they hook up with a coworker or friend or a stranger in a bar.

Of course, for some people, it’s not that they just don’t like exclusivity — there are people who get a thrill from cheating and prefer things that way. That is something very different.

Honestly, we just want Luann and Tom to be able to move on and live their best lives.

And not repeat past mistakes.
