Bravo ‘The Real Housewives of New York’ spoilers finds that the 55-year-old reality television star explained in an interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that even though she believes she has a problem, the sobriety was a mandate of her probation, forcing her to quit drinking right away. Because she wasn’t given enough time to deal with her issues and her alcoholism, that might have contributed to her hitting the bottle again.
Luanne said, “If I had a drink, I could go to jail. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to go through.” Once her ordeal with her probation was over, Luanne admits that she had a hard time deciding whether or not alcohol was going to be a part of her lifestyle.

“When I got through to the other side I really had the choice myself to decide if I wanted to drink or not and I felt in a good place and I felt I was back in the driver’s seat,” she told Cohen, adding, “Now I don’t have anybody watching over my shoulder except for me. I got through it and thank God.”
The Real Housewives of New York star was arrested back on Christmas Eve of 2017 after she slammed a door and kicked at least one of the officers that tried to arrest her. At one point she even threated the responding officers’ lives.
Luanne tweeted an apology at the time that said, “I want to offer my most sincere apologies to anyone that I might have offended with my behavior. This was my first time in Palm Beach since my wedding and being here brought up buried emotions. I am committed to a transformative and hopeful 2018.”
