Ms Kent, 31, looked somber as she arrived at Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court on Wednesday morning.
Following her arrest, Ms Kent publicly claimed she had two drinks on an empty stomach while getting ready for a fully vaccinated picnic.
As well as a four-month driving ban, back-dated to October 3 when her license was seized, the ex-reality TV star was fined $1,200 and ordered to participate in an interlock program for 12 months.
