The Florida Department of Corrections doesn’t know what to do with Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps, according to court docs snagged by Page Six.
The documents state that despite being ordered to not drink during her 12-month probation, “per her New York Probation Officer, she had an alcohol test conducted on 04/21/2019. She admitted to drinking 2 glasses of mimosas after a performance she had in Chicago.”
Once the results were conclusive, de Lesseps, 53, was told she could “immediately enroll in outpatient treatment” but she “declined due to her touring schedule,” the documents stated. She also declined to be fitted for an alcohol ankle monitoring device because it was “too intrusive.”
Her probation officer wrote that this is the second violation, after failing “to provide sufficient documentation of completed AA meetings.”
“It appears to the court that she is not serious about her sobriety or the orders of this Court,” the officer argued in the documents. “As stated on previous notification, she has used her unlimited travel as a reason to be noncompliant with her conditions of supervision.”
No word yet on what, if anything, will be done. De Lesseps’ probation is scheduled to end August 28th.
She defended herself in a statement to People, claiming she takes her sobriety “very seriously”: “I take my sobriety very seriously and like many in my situation, it is a daily struggle. I remain committed to doing whatever it takes to continue living a healthy sober lifestyle.”
All of this trouble stems from a Christmas 2017 arrest in which she pled guilty to felony charges of battery, trespassing and disorderly intoxication.
