The Real Housewives of New York City Season 10 reunion kicked off Wednesday night, and though we were excited to hear these Manhattanites dish on everything that's gone down this season, we of course were missing one member of the Big Apple bunch: Luann de Lesseps.
Andy Cohen addressed Luann's absence at the top of the reunion. "Obviously, we are missing somebody today. Luann could not be here with us. It's our understanding that she was seeking treatment," he said. "We're concerned, but we're glad Luann is being taken care of. It is certainly not the same without her here. We're gonna discuss Luann's journey a little bit later, but we still have an incredible season to talk about."
Luann checked herself back into rehab in July prior to the taping of the RHONY Season 10 reunion, so she was not present for the filming. However, Luann definitely missed the opportunity to reunite with her fellow New York Housewives. "Wish I could’ve been there but #Healthfirst," she shared on Instagram Wednesday before Part 1 of the reunion aired, adding "#nevercountoutthecountess" in the post, a nod to her iconic Season 7 tagline.
Luann previously opened up about missing the reunion during an interview on Megyn Kelly TODAY last week. "Listen, I had to take care of myself first," Luann said. "You get to say what you want to say about the entire season. So for me, it's about my honest truth and how I feel. And so I like the reunion, so I was really sad to miss it."
Luann also told Megyn Kelly that she would still like to address her unresolved issues with Dorinda Medley since she didn't get the opportunity to do so at the reunion. "Yeah, Dorinda and I are still not cool, which is unfortunate. I love Dorinda, but you know, there are some issues to be addressed, and I hope that we're gonna turn that relationship around because I love Dorinda, I've known her for a long time, so I hope we resolve it," she said. "And I'm sure at some point, we will. We're just not there yet."
The RHONY reunion continues with Part 2 on Wednesday at 8/7c. Check out a preview of the drama to come, below.
