Luann de Lesseps has been ‘sober for eight months’ and is writing a tell-all book about her 2017 arrest

She’s making the most out of a difficult situation.

And Luann de Lesseps will reveal the truth surrounding her Christmas Eve arrest in 2017 in Palm Beach, Florida with a new tell-all book, according to Page Six. 

The 54-year-old reality star admitted she’s ‘eight months sober’ and has reportedly kept a diary as part of her on-going therapy.

Luann was arrested on Dec. 24 at The Colony Hotel and charged with disorderly intoxication, battery on an officer, resisting arrest and threatening a public servant.

‘I’ve been keeping a diary of everything that has happened to me,’ she said. ‘I’ve been sober for eight months, and the therapists urge you to be honest about yourself.’ 

Following the very public incident, the Real Housewives of New York star had multiple rehab stints to battle her alcohol addiction. 

‘But many of the things written about me have been false, so this book is my chance to lay myself bare and also set the record straight,’ she said.

Late last month, Luann violated her probation terms after admitting to ‘drinking two glasses of mimosas’ following a cabaret performance. 

Her probation terms require weekly counseling sessions, psychiatric appointments and a breathalyzer in her vehicle. 

‘I take my sobriety very seriously and like many in my situation, it is a daily struggle,’ de Lesseps told PEOPLE at the time. ‘I remain committed to doing whatever it takes to continue living a healthy sober lifestyle.’ 

Luann was famously married Tom D’Agostino in 2016 during a lavish New Year’s Eve wedding in Palm Beach, only to divorce eight months later in August.

She was previously married to Count Alexandre de Lesseps for 16 years, and the couple had two children, Victoria and Noel.
