Luann posted a photo on her Instagram page in a letter apologizing for her behavior after being kicked out of the Manhattan piano bar, Townhouse.

She began: “This week, after an unfortunate incident, I had to face the truth.

“I would like to apologize to the staff at Townhouse and anyone else I may have offended because of my behaviour.”

The reality star confessed: “Obviously, my struggles with alcohol are real! While I’ve come a long way over the years, there were times when I fell.

“It’s a once a day! I’m recovering and taking steps to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

The housewife ended her Instagram apology by writing: “I am grateful to my family and friends for their constant support.”

One fan wrote: “We love you, Lu! Keep singing!”

A supportive second fan said: “You’re so strong.”

A third follower added: “Life is for living and making mistakes. Just live it, Lu. You’re amazing.”


Earlier this week, Luann was “fired from a gay piano bar” after “getting drunk on stage performing her own song,” according to Page Six.

The source claims she was “introducing messy versions of the songs” to audiences who “started booing her”.

One video shows Luann appearing drunk in front of the microphone of Townhouse, a Manhattan piano bar, whispering her words and addressing a patron who booed “f**k you”.

She is said to have tried to sing her own song, Money Can’t Buy You Class, but the pianist who was with her was unaware.

Another short clip appeared showing her arguing with an employee.

The countess denied being kicked out of the venue, but a tip told Page Six she was “fired out for being aggressive with the bar’s customers”.

The incident allegedly happened on Wednesday, and the next day Luann spoke to Page Six through an intermediary to explain.

“I got up and sang some of the Broadway songs they were playing,” she said.

“I realize I was a little drunk, but we were having a good time, and it was too late. I’m practicing and I’m in the mood to sing some songs. Then Jim [Kierstead] told me, “Lu, I have an early rehearsal,” and then we left around midnight, 11:30 p.m.


Luann was arrested again on December 23, 2017 in Palm Beach, Florida, and charged with one officer and disorderly intoxication.

She pleaded guilty to three counts: battery, trespassing and disorderly conduct.

The reality TV star received a year of probation and was asked to do 50 hours of community service, attend two AA meetings a week, and avoid drugs and alcohol.

She remained sober for the seasons following her arrest, although she has started drinking again in recent episodes.

Her drunken escapes were also caught on camera.

Luann shocked Bravo viewers when she fell into the bushes during the girls’ tour of Mexico on the ninth season of RHONY.
