“Countess” Luann de Lesseps won’t lose her Bravo TV job over her insane Christmas arrest, we’re told.
While a role on a traditional TV show might be put in jeopardy by criminal proceedings, sources close to the show tell Page Six that de Lesseps won’t face disciplinary action by Bravo after she was cuffed in Palm Beach, Fla., on Saturday for disorderly conduct and battery against a police officer — in fact it may even help her get more air time — after she was found in bed with a man in a random hotel room.
“It won’t [jeopardize her position on the show]. Reality loves reality,” said a source.
De Lesseps — who got into a confrontation with a cop after she was caught in bed with the man in a hotel room that wasn’t hers or his — is likely the first Housewife, and definitely the first countess, to resist arrest while allegedly drunkenly yelling at cops, “I’m going to f?-?-?king kill you!” But she is hardly the first “Real Housewives” star to get in trouble with the law. “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member Porsha Williams was arrested for speeding and driving with a suspended license in 2014, and “New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice went to prison on fraud charges in 2015.
