Yahoo Entertainment

Last year around Christmas, "Real Housewives of New York City" star Luann de Lesseps made headlines with a drunken arrest in which she threatened to kill a police officer.

After that, Luann checked into rehab but later relapsed due to stress connected to her ex suing her. On Tuesday, she visited "Megyn Kelly Today" and explained that she fell off the wagon particularly hard that night.

“[My friend] goes ‘I love making watermelon martinis’ and I go ‘I’m in,’” said de Lesseps. “I had two or three of those, I had two bottles of rosé by myself, and then I probably had a six pack of beer.”

De Lesseps spoke frankly about her alcoholism, telling Kelly, “I feel like I’m almost allergic to alcohol. I can’t be like more normal people and have a glass or two of wine. I’ll drink the whole bottle and then I’m looking, ‘where can I get another bottle?’”
