“After the events of last Saturday in Palm Beach, I’m really embarrassed. I’ve decided to seek professional guidance and will voluntarily check into an alcohol treatment center. I plan to make this unfortunate incident into a positive life changing event,” de Lesseps wrote on Facebook at the moment, with the announcement that they had decided to seek help.
Since being arrested, going to rehab, and dealing with her highly-publicized divorce from ex Tom D ‘ agostino, de Lesseps told Fox News in April that she has finally gotten a new start with her recently launched cabaret show #CountessAndFriends.
“I think it’s one of the biggest things that has changed since everything went down is that I have discovered my passion,” she shared.

And de Lesseps, who recently had to cancel one of her concerts due to an illness, admitted that she was shocked by the success of her sold-out show.
“I thought that people would want to come, but I don’t think that it would be so,” de Lesseps said.
“I put all my energy in making a show and it is really what I needed, able to concentrate on something else. It was like a gift from heaven that I had that.”
