Countess Luann de Lesseps has officially been hit with 3 charges for her alleged drunken holiday attack on a cop … TMZ has learned. The ‘Real Housewives of NYC’ star has been charged with a felony count of resisting an officer with violence,…
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.
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.
