'Human' LuAnn De Lesseps Apologizes For Bar Drunkeness: 'You Have To Own Your Behavior'
LuAnn de Lesseps is reflecting on her latest fall from grace.
The Real Housewives of New York City star, 56, recently hit a bump in the road of her sobriety journey after having a few too many drinks and getting kicked out of a piano bar last week.
After issuing an apology for the drunken episode over the weekend — where she reportedly took over the microphone and "yelled at the other patrons" in the NYC bar — de Lesseps addressed the incident once again, explaining that she believes owning up to her actions was the right thing to do.
"I had a pretty good track record but people slip and like I said I'm only human and it happened," she candidly said during an appearance on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday, March 22.

"I apologized because it's important. You have to own your behavior," she added, per Daily Mail.
While the Countess admitted, "I had a party that night, for sure," she pointed out nobody is perfect. "I just want to say that people make mistakes," de Lesseps reportedly continued during Tuesday's appearance. "I'm only human and it's progress, not perfection."

Despite first trying to deny getting kicked out Townhouse in Manhattan, de Lesseps took to Instagram on Saturday, March 19, to say she was "faced with the truth" following the "regrettable incident."
"I want to apologize to the staff at Townhouse and anyone else I may have offended by my behavior," she wrote in her Instagram message.
As OK! reported, a witness from the incident claimed de Lesseps "monopolized the piano," before eventually "getting aggressive with the bar's customers," causing her to be escorted out of the venue.
"Clearly my struggles with alcohol are real," she continued in her apology. "While I've made great strides over the years, there's been times I've fallen. It's one day at a time!"
de Lesseps also assured her fans that she is "in recovery" and "taking steps to ensure this doesn't happen again."
"I'm grateful to my family and my friends for their constant support," the reality star concluded at the time.
