Luann De Lesseps says ‘sobriety is not easy’ after getting BACK on the wagon before shooting RHONY: ‘I’m happier when I don’t drink’

Luann De Lesseps reflected that ‘sobriety is not easy’ after remaining on the wagon through filming the new season of The Real Housewives Of New York City.

The 55-year-old, who has been on and off the wagon over the years, last picked up drinking again around the dawn of 2020.

However she has since gotten clean after a ‘wake up call,’ telling Page Six: ‘I ultimately have more fun and I’m happier when I don’t drink.’

Luann, who sometimes goes by ‘the Countess,’ reflected on sobriety: ‘I think the longer you don’t do something, the less you miss it.’

The reality star confessed: ‘I’m not perfect. God knows during COVID it was an issue for me and I’m very honest about it, sometimes too honest because I look at it and I go: “That’s too much information.” 

‘But I’m hoping that by being honest about it, that I can help somebody that says: “You know what? Oh my God, I’m drinking too much too,” or: “I’m like blacking out when I drink and I don’t remember,”‘ and that’s when it starts to be a problem.’

Luann revealed: ‘I thought it was a wake up call. And for me it’s like every time it’s like I get to another level, it’s like: “Oh well, I know this doesn’t work for me. So, you know, I’m back on the wagon.”‘

The two-time divorcee candidly shared: ‘So I feel like I get to a better place each time and listen, sobriety is not easy. It’s a day-by-day thing. I ultimately have more fun and I’m happier when I don’t drink.’

She reportedly relied on a sober coach to help her refrain from drinking through the shoot of The Real Housewives Of New York City season 13.

A Page Six source explained: ‘Most people in her situation would avoid bars and that kind of thing, but she didn’t have that option. It really made her nervous.’

Luann was arrested on Christmas Eve 2017 in Palm Beach while drunk and disorderly, and her August 2018 plea bargain got her a year of probation.

Although she got arrested again in 2019 for drinking in violation of her probation, she avoided jail and the probation still ended that August. 

By New Year’s Day 2020 she had revealed to People magazine that she was indulging in an alcoholic beverage every now and again.

‘New Year’s has been a time of reflection. I’ve learned a great deal about myself, and I’m in a very good place and finally back in the drivers seat,’ she said at the time.
