LUANN DE LESSEPS TALKS DRINKING DRAMA: Luann de Lesseps is addressing Ramona Singer’s claim that she’s still drinking, despite going to rehab. "A lot of what Ramona says in the reunion does get me in trouble, 'cause people see it and they listen to it," the Real Housewives of New York City star told ET. "It doesn't help me and it doesn't help me get through this difficult situation, so I really didn't appreciate some of the comments Ramona makes in the second reunion episode." She says that the third part of the RHONY reunion will show a better side to the drama. "I think what you are going to see on the last part of the reunion is a lot of reconciliation, a lot of everyone owning their stuff, a lot of me going into the explanation of why I was so into my cabaret and taking care of myself, and rightfully so," she added. "… So you are going to see me talk about that, you are going to see me talk about how difficult the year has been and and you are going to see a lot of reconciliation and moving forward with the women. So, that, it is all good."
