Luann de Lesseps has come to her senses and decided to go to rehab following her drunken Palm Beach arrest.
“After the events of last Saturday night in Palm Beach, I am truly embarrassed,” the Real Housewives of New York City star told People. “I have decided to seek professional guidance and will be voluntarily checking into an alcohol treatment center. I intend to turn this unfortunate incident into a positive life changing event. Once again, I sincerely apologize for my actions. I have the greatest respect for police officers and the job they do. My actions alleged in the police report do not reflect my core values and my law abiding character. I am so grateful for the love and support that I am receiving from my family, friends and loyal supporters.”
The Real Housewives of New York star, 52, was arrested for disorderly intoxication, battery of an officer, resisting arrest and making threats against a public servant early Sunday. According to a police report, Luann trespassed in a hotel room with an unidentified male, causing hotel security to call the cops. De Lesseps and the man were in bed together, according to the report.
Luann allegedly tried to escape from the back of a police car, after being cuffed, and screamed, “I’m going to f*cking kill you!”
