There’s major drama in the world of Real Housewives of New York, and interestingly, it’s not coming from one of the Housewives. In fact, the daughter of LuAnn D’Agostino (formerly de Lesseps), Victoria de Lesseps, was arrested on DWI charges on April 7.
According to Page Six, de Lesseps was arrested in the Hamptons — specifically Sag Harbor — earlier this month and “blew an alleged .15 at the station and was released without bail the next morning.” As a reminder to us all, the legal limit is 0.08.
De Lesseps was reportedly hanging out at her Hamptons pad and decided to get behind the wheel despite having had a few drinks. I can see how she may have wanted to go for a joy ride with the brisk Hamptons air blowing through her car windows, but next time, she should probably order a Lyft. Buzzed driving is drunk driving, and that’s never cool.
Page Six also reports that de Lesseps is due in court on May 5. Her attorney, Edward Burke Jr., is on record as saying, “I look forward to defending her vigorously in court.” Oh boy.
