LuAnn de Lesseps arrested; Real Housewives of New York City star accused of attacking police officer

LuAnn de LessepsWell, it seems as though Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is probably one person having a less Merry Christmas than most. The Real Housewives of New York City star has been arrested following what’s being described as an alleged drunken incident with police in Palm Beach, Florida.

According to a report from TMZ, the reality star has been charged with multiple crimes following the incident, including battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, and two separate counts of corruption by threat. That’s a lot of charges following an incident right before Christmas. She has been released, but is due back in court in January to discuss the case further.

2017 was not the easiest of years for LuAnn de Lesseps, given that earlier this summer she split from Tom D’Agostino, her husband who she married last year in Florida. She’s had that split play out in the press, and this comes after a pretty tumultuous season of the aforementioned show where her relationship was questioned many times over. Since the divorce filing she’s probably been forced to deal with a number of naysayers who take pleasure, unfortunately, in her distress. She still has to be in control of her actions, though, and these accusations are both very unfortunate and frankly sad. The fact that the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York City is currently filming could make this even more of a low point for her, since obviously this will be a subject of conversation both during the season and after the fact. Maybe it could serve as a wakeup call for her, as these charges suggest that she is in need of one.

For those of you who are Real Housewives fanatics, hopefully you’ll have a chance to get your fill a little bit later this week when The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills returns with a new episode. Given that Atlanta is off for the week due to the holidays, you’ll have to get your here.
