Luann de Lesseps narrowly dodged jail time after she violated her probation by drinking alcohol, and now RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal the Real Housewives of New York star thinks the strict new rules authorities have placed on her are "completely unnecessary."
"She thinks the anti-drinking medication is borderline offensive," a source snitched of the star, who was also ordered to complete counseling and wear a breathalyzer device in the May 23 court hearing. (A Florida judge initially ordered her to jail, but then altered the decision a few hours later.)
More than a year after her bombshell Christmas 2017 arrest for assaulting and threatening to kill a police officer, the reality star, 54, still brushes off the boozy incident.
Added the informant: "She's convinced she is the victim here, and downplays all of it when she speaks to her costars."
"She jokes about her arrest, and thinks its all a great storyline."
But Luann's plans for an epic reality TV plot may have finally backfired, because as Radar previously reported, Bravo producers are fed up with her antics — and may fire her from the hit show.
"When it comes to disobeying the law and making a mockery out of the system, Bravo has zero tolerance," the source explained.
As Radar revealed exclusively earlier today, Luann has become a "huge liability" to the network.
“She thinks that she is invincible, and producers are really starting to think that being on the show is just making her problems worse," an insider said.
In 2018, Luann pleaded guilty to battery, trespassing and disorderly intoxication, and was sentenced to probation.
However, the two-time rehab vet admitted to violating probation by drinking mimosas in Chicago earlier this year, which led to her latest legal trouble.
