The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 10 Recap: You Broke the Penal Code
If you are not a fan of Luann de Lesseps, then The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 10 was not the episode for you.
It was all about the countess, and the aftermath of her being arrested for a myriad of reasons. Obviously, the reality TV show cameras never really stop, so there was no hiding for Luann.
Also, when you have the likes of Carole Radziwill, Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel in your circle of friends, you can bet your bottom dollar that the world will know all the details before long.
But how did Luann’s fellow housewives react to the whole thing?
“I assumed that she had been drinking and driving,” Radziwell told the cameras.
“I said, ‘Oh my God, she has a DUI.’ Then I Googled, and I found out that it was a little bit more complicated than that. I was scared for her, because that’s not a good place to be.”
“I was a few blocks away from where this whole thing went down,” said Tinsley Mortimer.
“And I feel badly for Luann because I know how it’s probably going to be taken in the press and go a million different directions.”
Tinsley’s reaction was right on the money. These things are blown way out of proportion, but Tinsley defended Luann all the way through the hour, saying that she was not ready to go partying.
In essence, she was not over her failed marriage to Tom D’agostino. That makes sense, it may have seemed like the biggest sham around, but Luann seemed happy.
The good thing was that Luann was all about recovery, and admitted she was seeking treatment for alcohol abuse. It was music to Dorinda Medley’s ears.
“Luann’s in rehab, she went to court, and she’s got some pretty major accusations,” Medley admitted to the cameras.
“I don’t think she is ready to be back in any kind of polite society.”
But Medley really stuck the knife into de Lesseps when she spoke to Ramona about the whole thing, saying:
“Sometimes, God stops what you’re not recognizing you need to stop. And I don’t think she was in a good place before Christmas.”
Dorinda then said that her main issue with Luann was that she went to the place she got married just a year earlier, and that’s why things went downhill.
“If I knew she was going to Palm Beach, I would have done everything in my power to stop her,” she said.
“Hey, we all can drink a little too much, have a little too much fun, but this was an out of control situation that became public. But worse than that, the police were involved, and that’s bad,” said Ramona Singer upon hearing all about it.
Then there was Bethenny, who was one of the few women who wanted Luann to know all about Tom’s past.
“I have no idea what Luann’s perspective on rehab and her arrest is,” Frankel shared with cameras.
“You know, Luann has myriad emotions. Luann could deny and blame, accept and evolve, cry and be vulnerable; there are a million ways that one can handle this.”
Yes, the episode may have been overstuffed with all the reactions, but it was still fun to see what headspace the cast was in.
