Luann has announced she is going to rehab.
I’ve been looking in to this situation for several days and I’m not sure how to react to this. Obviously, if she has a problem, then this is great news. However, some of us still have some unanswered questions.
First of all, we have Julie Olson running to Page Six with a story that differs from the police report. Julie’s version of the story keeps her out of the hotel room where the incident occurred entirely. Isn’t that convenient? If you believe her version, the police officers lied in there report. One must consider who has the motivation to lie.
Also, according to Julie, Lu going to a hotel room with a man where she is so fucked up she doesn’t know where she is according to her, is “no big deal.”
Julie, also seems to be concealing the identity of the man involved.
There is a nefarious story being discussed behind the scenes in which this mystery man could have done something illegal. Perhaps that is why Julie is not disclosing the name of the man who took Lu into a random hotel room.
I’m just saying, there are alternate theories about what happened that night floating around and in one scenario, the mystery man committed a crime or two, and Luann was the victim. The word I am hearing is that Luann has no recollection of the events and is very frightened.
The charges are very serious. Luann was in an altered stated and attacked and threatened police officers. She has to answer for that. It doesn’t sound like she was tested for anything other than alcohol. If she was, perhaps they might have discovered another substance that was not voluntarily ingested?
Again, these are simply theories and questions that my sources have about the situation. Unfortunately, we will probably never have the answers to questions like, “Who was the man with Luann in the hotel room?” or “Why is Julie running to the press with information that is in conflict with the police report?” or “Why didn’t Julie name the man?” or “Did Luann actually know the man prior to that night?” or “Were there any other drugs in Luann’s system at the time of her arrest?”
If Lu can’t prove that she was not responsible for the condition she was in that night, then her lawyers will advise her to go to rehab in advance of the court date.
Something about this entire situation doesn’t sit right with me.
And it is really, really sad that this is happening during a season where Luann was getting a good edit. Ramona, Sonja and Dorinda were all getting along really well for a change and people were nice to her in The Berkshires this season. I’m sure that as I am typing this RHONY production is going through all of that film looking for any drinking Luann was doing. It will be interesting to see how much or how little footage they come up with.
It’s not clear if she will be able to continue to film after rehab.
