LuAnn de Lesseps Refuses Sobriety Meds, Pisses Off Bravo Bosses

by at .

It seems Countess LuAnn still doesn't comprehend the severity of her situation.

It's been 18 months since LuAnn de Lesseps was arrested for kicking a cop, but the Real Housewives of New York star is still in the legal system because she refuses to kick the sauce and take her probation seriously.

LuAnn almost went back to jail earlier this month after it was revealed she had been drinking again, but her lawyers were able to work out a deal that spared her incarceration.

The deal requires LuAnn to take Antabuse, a medication that prevents users from drinking.

One would think that the Countess would happily accept any arrangement that would keep her out of jail.

But it seems de Lesseps is royally pissed about the latest requirements of her probation.

“LuAnn thinks the anti-drinking medication is borderline offensive,” a source close to the 54-year-old tells Radar Online.

“She’s convinced everyone that she is the victim here and downplays all of it when she speaks to her co-stars.”

Not surprisingly, LuAnn's exasperated co-stars aren't buying that version of the narrative.

And her bosses at Bravo are even more fed up with her narcissistic delusions.

"She jokes about her arrest and, initially, said that it will make a great storyline," the insider says.

However, it seems Andy Cohen and company strongly disagree.

Sure, the network loves drama, but RHONY producers also take LuAnn's legal and health issues very seriously.

“When it comes to disobeying the law and making a mockery out of the system, Bravo has zero tolerance," the source claims.

"She is being dishonest with everyone and she knows that her time is coming. It’s happened to so many before her and she also knows this.”

And it seems that -- like the court system -- Bravo is ready to hold LuAnn accountable if she continues to spiral out of control.

“Producers are really considering letting her go because she has become a huge liability,” says the insider.

“She thinks that she is invincible, and producers are really starting to think that being on the show is just making her problems worse.”
