The Real Housewives of New York City star revealed on Friday that she is checking herself into an alcohol treatment center after being detained and accused of disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest and battery on a law enforcement officer. The 52-year-old reality star also apologized once again, writing that her actions do not reflect her character.
"After the events of last Saturday night in Palm Beach, I am truly embarrassed. I have decided to seek professional guidance and will be voluntarily checking into an alcohol treatment center," de Lesseps wrote on Facebook. "I intend to turn this unfortunate incident into a positive life changing event."
"Once again, I sincerely apologize for my actions. I have the greatest respect for police officers and the job they do," she continued. "My actions alleged in the police report do not reflect my core values and my law abiding character. I am so grateful for the love and support that I am receiving from my family, friends and loyal supporters."
De Lesseps was taken into the Palm Beach County Jail at 1:25 a.m. local time on Dec. 24 and was released on her own recognizance 10 hours later. After she was let go, de Lesseps took to Twitter to apologize for her behavior, expressing that it was her first time in Palm Beach since her wedding and "brought up buried emotions."
