Beador was sentenced to 3-years probation, 40 hours of community service and a 9-month alcohol program.

"I am grateful that no one else was injured besides me in this incident. I have learned so much from my terrible mistake that night and realize that driving any distance while impaired is too far," Beador told RadarOnline.com.

According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Beador avoided a much harsher sentence than what prosecutors wanted, though she was not in court on Thursday to hear for herself.

Orange County District Attorney Todd Spitzer argued that the Bravo star needed to spend 30 days in jail for her actions.

Beador's attorney appeared in court on her behalf and pleaded no contest to one count of driving under the influence and one count of driving with a blood alcohol content of .08% or more.

Beador caught another break when the Orange County judge dismissed one count of hit and run resulting in property damage.

The reality star was arrested back in September after she drunkenly drove her car into a Newport Beach home.

According to court documents, Spitzer claimed that Beador had a .24% BAC after the single-car accident.
