“You know, I just want to say that people make mistakes, I’m only human, and it’s progress, not perfection,” Lesseps said during her WWHL appearance. “I’ve had a pretty good track record, but you know, people slip up, and like I said, I’m only human and it happens.”
Lesseps continued: “It’s part of taking responsibility and moving on, picking yourself back up and doing the right thing. That’s why I apologized. It’s important and you have to accept your behavior. And, you know, I had a party that night, that’s for sure.”
Lesseps also apologized in a statement on Instagram
After the March 16 incident, Lesseps also intervened her Instagram page to write an apology to her fans and followers. In the statement, Lesseps admitted she still struggled with alcohol.
“This week I was faced with the truth after an unfortunate incident,” Lesseps wrote. “I would like to apologize to the Townhouse staff and anyone else I may have offended by my behavior. My struggles with alcohol are clearly real! Although I’ve made great strides over the years, there have been times when I’ve fallen. It’s one day at a time! I am in recovery and taking steps to ensure this doesn’t happen again.”
Lesseps continued, “I am grateful to my family and friends for their constant support. Sincerely, LuAnn.”

“If you don’t remember how you got home, that’s a wake-up call,” Lesseps told the outlet at the time. “It happens to a lot of people — mostly — and people don’t want to admit it.”
Lesseps continued: “It’s a scary thing. When it happened to me, I said, ‘You know, this is it.’ Relapses are a part of recovery and every time I get closer to who I want to be and that’s someone sober. Ultimately, I’m so much happier not drinking.”
During the interview, Lesseps said she was “back on track” with her sobriety.
“I’m back on track and feeling really good,” Lesseps said. “It doesn’t bother me as much as it used to, and every time I feel like I’m coming to a different place and it’s a better place. I’m lucky because I was able to catch it up really quickly and just get it back on track.”
