‘Real Housewives of New York’ star Luann de Lesseps has issued an apology after causing a scene at New York’s piano bar Townhouse.
“This week, after an unfortunate incident, I was confronted with the truth,” De Lesseps, 56, began his statement on Instagram on Saturday morning.
“I want to apologize to the Townhouse staff and anyone else I may have offended with my behavior,” she continued. “Obviously my struggles with alcohol are real!”
De Lesseps was arrested in 2017 in Palm Beach, Florida on Christmas Eve for drunkenness and disorder. She agreed to plead guilty to assault, trespassing and disorderly intoxication in exchange for the felony charge against her being reduced.
The reality star has publicly battled his addiction since, with time spent in rehab and continued efforts to maintain his sobriety over the years.
“Although I have made great progress over the years, there have been times when I have fallen. It’s one day at a time,” she continued. “I am recovering and I’m taking steps to ensure this doesn’t happen again.”
De Lesseps was reportedly kicked out of Townhouse this week after causing a drunken disturbance while ‘hogging the piano’ at the popular gay bar.
The reality TV star reportedly “played confusing versions of songs”, which were so intolerable that “the crowd started booing her”, causing her to yell at the audience, shouting “fuck you!” to patrons.
“I am grateful to my family and friends for their constant support, sincerely, LuAnn,” she concluded.
The Countess found support in ‘Housewives’ Cynthia Bailey of Atlanta and Lisa Rinna of Beverly Hills, who both left encouraging messages for fellow countryman Bravolebrity in the comments section.
