Luann de Lesseps no need to worry about spending another Christmas behind bars.

A Palm Beach County, Florida, judge signed off on a plea deal that avoids jail time for the “Real Housewives of New York” star on Wednesday morning, per court documents obtained by Page Six.

De Lesseps agreed to plea guilty to battery, trespassing and disorderly intoxication in exchange for the felony charge against her will be reduced.

They will also perform 50 hours of community service (with at least 10 hours per month) and attend two meetings of Alcoholics Anonymous a week in New York, per the deal. The “Countess and Friends” star will also participate in a Mothers Against Drunk Driving victim impact class, and they can’t use drugs or alcohol.

They are required to submit to random test throughout her year-long probation.

De Lesseps, 53, already wrote an excuse letter to the cop she hit.

Page Six previously reported that de Lesseps was arrested on christmas Eve in Palm Beach, after she was picked up with an unknown man in a room that was not theirs. They drunkenly threatened to “kill” the police arrest her, and even slipped out of her handcuffs in a point.

She checked herself into rehab shortly after and again in July after her children and her ex-husband sued her.

“I heard about this whole story is that I was accused, in the press,” she told Megyn Kelly on her return from rehab. “That was horrible, I felt betrayed, I felt so hurt by that. I had my heart on that house, my heart. I was devastated and I lost it.”

De Lesseps recalled to drown her sorrows with a watermelon martini with a friend.

“I had two or three of them, then I think two bottles of rosé wine by myself, and I probably had a six-pack of beer or something,” de Lesseps shared. “I danced in my kitchen with a bikini on.”
