Luann de Lesseps felt the cold steel of handcuffs Thursday, but she’s NOT going back to jail for violating her probation by downing a couple of mimosas.
The ‘Real Housewives of New York‘ star went before a Florida judge and during the hearing they put her in cuffs … but the State’s Attorney for Palm Beach County State tells TMZ … she was not taken to jail … contrary to several reports.
As we’ve reported … Luann recently told her probation officer she had “2 glasses of mimosas after a performance” in Chicago. That’s a major no-no because she’s supposed to stay away from booze for a whole year under the plea deal she struck in her drunken arrest case.
We’re told the court didn’t believe she was taking her probation seriously — so the judge ordered additional probation conditions for Luann. They include keeping a breathalyzer in her car, weekly telephone counseling, monthly in-person meetings with a psychiatrist and taking the prescription drug Antabuse … which treats alcoholism.
A rep for Luann tells TMZ … she looks forward to completing the last couple months of probation and putting this entire situation behind her and moving on with her life.
