TamaraTattles is sad to report that Luann has relapsed after the many negative headlines in the press recently. She has authorized Bethenny Frankel to give the following statement to People Magazine exclusively.
“This weekend, Luann was surrounded by her girlfriends and decided — with their support — that in light of recent circumstances, it is the healthiest choice for her not to attend Tuesday’s reunion taping so that she can continue in her healing process. Luann is now surrounded by a core group of people who truly have her best interests at heart and who are working to make sure she gets the help she needs. Recent additional family stress was a catalyst to her taking a break. Luann loves doing the cabaret. She’s taking the necessary steps to get better so that the show can go on. Bravo has been very supportive of Luann during this time. It’s a brave and honest decision by her, and everyone is rallying around her and wants the best for her.”
Bravo stated,“Bravo supports Luann’s decision to focus on her health. She is part of the Bravo family and we continue to stand by her as she copes with this challenging situation. At this time, we hope everyone will respect her privacy.”
Bethenny made it clear that the most recent story regarding Luann allegedly mishandling her children’s money that should have been placed in trust is the catalyst for this relapse. However, it does lend credence to previous stories saying that she was drinking at the pride parade she was in recently. I hope this rehab sticks and wish her all the best.
