When The Real Housewives of New York City Season 10 reunion airs, fans will notice that one member of the Big Apple bunch is missing. Luann de Lesseps checked herself back into rehab in July, so she did not attend this season's RHONY reunion taping.
Luann confirmed that she was not present for the filming of this season's RHONY reunion during an appearance on Megyn Kelly TODAY Tuesday — although she wishes she had been there. "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."
The RHONY singer returned to rehab in July, six months after she checked into an alcohol treatment center following her arrest on December 24, 2017 in Palm Beach, Florida. “Bravo supports Luann’s decision to focus on her health. She is part of the Bravo family and we continue to stand by her as she copes with this challenging situation," a Bravo spokesperson said in a statement after the news broke. "At this time, we hope everyone will respect her privacy.”
Since Luann was not at this season's reunion taping, she, of course, still has some issues she'd like to address with her fellow New York Housewives, specifically Dorinda Medley, with whom she has especially come at odds with toward the end of this season. "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," Luann told Megyn Kelly during the interview. "And I'm sure at some point, we will. We're just not there yet."
Though their friendship might not yet be back to 100 percent, Dorinda has still been there for Luann during this difficult time. "I literally cried over it. I cried when I heard," Dorinda told The Daily Dish about hearing the news of Luann's return to rehab while getting ready for this season's RHONY reunion. "I wrote her a text, a quick text, but I haven't heard back, so I'm just gonna pray for her, think about her. She's here in thought."
Luann and Dorinda's drama will come to a head in the RHONY Season 10 finale on Wednesday at 8/7c. Watch a preview, below.
