Luann de Lesseps Says She’s 6 Months Sober as She Reunites with First Husband and Kids

Luann de Lesseps says she’s six months sober.

The Real Housewives of New York City star took to Instagram to document the milestone day, which she spent in Sag Harbor, New York, with her first husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps and their two kids, Noel and Victoria.

“Greatest reunion ever!” she captioned a photo of her and the Count. “Wonderful to spend the weekend with the kids and The Count. Also counting my blessings! Celebrating 6 months of sobriety! Happy 4th of July, everyone! @noeldelesseps @victoriadelesseps #onedayatatime #lovemyfamily #grateful #rhony #countess.”

De Lesseps, 53, was arrested last Christmas Eve in Palm Beach, Florida, and charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer, resisting arrest with violence and threatening a public servant. (She’s since pleaded not guilty and rejected a plea deal in February.)

She later apologized for the incident, admitting that being back in Palm Beach for the first time since she tied the knot with Tom D’Agostino Jr. before divorcing him seventh months later had “brought up long-buried emotions.”

She entered a treatment facility and began focusing on her personal wellbeing.

Speaking to PEOPLE in April, the Bravo star opened up about how she explained the arrest to her kids.

“I told my children I did something that I am not proud of, and I asked them to forgive me,” she said. “They were like, ‘We don’t care about that. We don’t care about what people think. We know who you are, and we love you and we’re here.’ They were great.”

Along with her kids, de Lesseps said she could count on her fellow Housewives to be there for her — regardless of the drama always being stirred up on screen.

“The Housewives can be really bitchy sometimes, but when push comes to shove and you’re down and you need to be picked up, the ladies were right there for me,” she said.

Despite what the incident cost her, de Lesseps said she found a silver lining and hasn’t resumed drinking.

“Unless I was humiliated publicly, I don’t think I would have done anything,” she said. “This was a warning. It was meant to happen so that I could take a step back and look at myself in a different way. I’m grateful to the universe for making me change my life.”

The Real Housewives of New York City airs Wednesdays (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.

RHONY’s Luann de Lesseps Reveals She Ate a Bologna Sandwich in Prison: ‘It Was So Sad’

Luann de Lesseps‘ Christmas Eve arrest in Palm Beach, Florida was a frightening experience for the mother of two. But months later, de Lesseps’ has been able to look back on the experience and find humor in some of her lowest moments — even laughing at the meal she was given during the night she spent in jail.

On Wednesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, de Lesseps recounted her darkest day to fellow Housewife Dorinda Medley, peeling back the curtain as to what happened after she was arrested.

“I had a sundress on, I had no shoes, no blanket, no water, no nothing,” she recalled. “They threw me a bologna sandwich, which was so crazy. You know the last time I had a bologna sandwich? Probably 40 years ago!”

“I took a big bite out of that and inside was the mustard packet,” de Lesseps said, with a laugh. “I pull out, it was almost like a dead fish hanging out of my mouth. It was just so pathetic and so sad.”

De Lesseps was visiting Palm Springs for the holidays when she was discovered trespassing in a hotel room with an unidentified man. The pair had entered the wrong room at the Colony Hotel due to one too many cocktails and a mixup of what floor they were on, she said. When authorities approached her and asked her to leave, de Lesseps got confused and defiant.

Police said Lesseps slammed a door and kicked at least one officer. “Officer O’Leary then attempted to detain de Lesseps and remove her from the bathroom, at which time De Lesseps shoved Officer O’Leary with an open palm to the chest, then slammed the door on Officer O’Leary face, striking him in the forehead. While de Lesseps was being placed in handcuffs she resisted by pushing and pulling away from Officer O’Leary and I,” the police report stated.

The incident, shown on the Bravo program in video that was captured by officers from the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Department on the scene, was a tough one to watch.

“Don’t touch me,” de Lesseps can be heard yelling at one officer. “I’m gonna kill you. I’ll kill you. I will kill you.”

She was charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer, resisting arrest with violence and threatening a public servant (de Lesseps’ since pleaded not guilty and rejected a plea deal in February).

After de Lesseps’ arrest, she told PEOPLE that that being in Palm Beach nearly a year after she wed now-ex Tom D’Agostino in the Florida destination “brought up long-buried emotions.”

It didn’t help that the Colony Hotel was the same place she had her wedding brunch after saying her “I dos.”

Now sober after a 21-day stint in an alcohol treatment facility, de Lesseps revealed on an episode of RHONY earlier this month that she was grateful the experience pushed her to slow down.

“I’m not proud of what happened,” she said. “But I’m learning a lot about myself. I found the right place to be to take care of myself. I’m finally dealing with what I was trying to drink myself out of — which is dealing with my emotions from the marriage to Tom. I knew that I needed help to get that under control, but I didn’t ask for it. And you know what? I hit a wall. I just wish it wouldn’t have been a brick wall.”

She told similar things in to PEOPLE in April, saying that despite losing friends, she’s found a silver lining in her arrest.

“Unless I was humiliated publicly, I don’t think I would have done anything,” she said. “This was a warning. It was meant to happen so that I could take a step back and look at myself in a different way. I’m grateful to the universe for making me change my life.”

Oops! Sonja Morgan Suffers Wardrobe Malfunction During Luann de Lesseps’ Cabaret Show

Sonja Morgan gave the audience at New York City venue Feinstein’s/54 Below an extra show on Thursday night, when she suffered a wardrobe malfunction during her high-energy performance.

The Real Housewives of New York City star, 54, had joined fellow New York City Housewife Luann de Lesseps on stage for her #CountessAndFriends cabaret program, collaborating on de Lesseps’ tune “Money Can’t Buy You Class.”

It was a highlight of de Lesseps’ two-hour show:  The crowd quickly jumping to their feet when Morgan emerged from the audience in a halter-top, red silk wrap dress (which she had also worn during a Valentine’s Day trip to Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen).

But toward the end of the song — as fellow Housewives Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer sang and clapped along — Mogan’s dress unwrapped, exposing her backside to the packed house.

Ever the professional, Morgan didn’t miss a beat in her performance. She powered through, still singing while turning to get an audience member’s help tying her dress back up before finally securing it herself.

Morgan’s slip was the only hiccup of the night, which opened with de Lesspes singing The Beatles’ 1967 hit “With a Little Help from My Friends” before transitioning into songs like “Almost Like Being in Love” and “L.O.V.E.”

The show, directed by Ben Rimalower and Billy Stritch, also included performances by Tony winner Laura BenantiSaturday Night Live star Rachel Dratch, Patti Cake$ ‘s Bridget Everett, the Scissor Sisters singer Jake Shears and Broadway stars Tony Yazbeck, Andrew Keenan-Bolger and Natalie Joy Johnson.

De Lesspes first performed the #CountessAndFriends show in February. She will return to Feinstien’s/54 Below with the program and a slew of special guests later this spring.

It’s been a tough few months for de Lesseps, who was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida, on Christmas Eve and charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer/firefighter/EMT, resisting arrest with violence and threatening a public servant. (She’s since pleaded not guilty to the charges, with a hearing set for April).

The mother of two married ex-husband Tom D’Agostino in Palm Beach last New Year’s Eve before their divorce seven months later. Following her Dec. 24 arrest, the reality star checked herself into an alcohol treatment facility.

“Obviously it was a really bad night for me and something I am not proud of,” de Lesseps told The New York Times in February about the incident.

“I’m trying to keep it light while also taking it seriously,” she added about the cabaret show. “The important thing is to not take yourself so damn seriously. I always think, ‘I can survive this if I keep on moving.’ ”

The Real Housewives of New York City’s 10th anniversary season premieres April 4 (9 p.m. ET) on Bravo.
