Luann de Lesseps, a 52-year-old cast member of “The Real Housewives of New York” reality TV show, announced via Instagram on Friday afternoon she would voluntarily check into a alcohol treatment center after being arrested at The Colony Hotel on Saturday.
In the apology, de Lesseps told her followers she was embarrassed by what occurred. Police said de Lesseps was drunk when she slammed a door in the face of an officer and told other officers she was going to kill them.
This wasn’t the first time de Lesseps expressed regret for her actions in Palm Beach.
She apologized a day after her arrest on her Twitter account and said it was her first time on the island since her wedding with Tom D’Agostino Jr. at The Brazilian Court Hotel last New Year’s Eve.
During her first appearance at Palm Beach County Jail on Sunday, Judge Ted Booras told de Lesseps to stop drinking as she might have a problem.
