Real Housewives of New York star, Luann de Lesseps, was seen smoking a joint Tuesday night, outside the Public Hotel, around 11 p.m.
The Countess was at the hotel’s nightclub, Public Arts, for a Tribeca Film Festival party hosted by MCM Worldwide. Fans of the Bravo reality show know that Luann was arrested on Christmas Eve for disorderly intoxication, and later completed stint in rehab. The reality star has maintained that she’s committed to sobriety since the messy episode — but an eyewitness told Page Six a different story.
“She took my friend’s blunt and then we gave her niece a cigarette,” the partier told Page Six.
Luann was spotted with her niece, Nicole Nadeau, who fans know as the ex of Adam Kenworthy — the chef who sparked a feud between Luann and her co-star, Carole Radziwill.
“Luann smokes occasionally to help with anxiety and pain from her accident,” Luann’s rep said when asked for a comment.
Luann was involved in a car accident in Switzerland, in 1999.
“I thought I killed myself and my children. I never really faced that horrific accident, and through that and everything else, my emotions just crept up on me and drove me to the point of self-medicating with alcohol,” Luann told People about the wreck, earlier this month.
The outlet also reports that a fan was heard calling out to the Bravoleb, about her plan to attend Luann’s cabaret show at Feinstein’s/54 Below club, “#CountessandFriends.”
“That’s awesome, you’ll love it!” Luann said, before exiting with her niece.
The Real Housewives of New York airs Wednesday nights, at 9:00 p.m. ET, on Bravo.
