Real Housewives of New York star Luann De Lesseps has said that she is living a sober life - but that she occasionally allows herself a glass of alcohol.

"New Year's has been a time of reflection," the Countess told PEOPLE. "I've learned a great deal about myself, and I'm in a very good place and finally back in the drivers seat."

"I've always said my journey is day by day. I'm toasting to a happy new year ahead!"

Luann was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida in 2017 on charges of disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest, battery of an officer and making threats against a public servant. Her arrest video went viral online as the Countess even slipped out of her handcuffs and exited the police car.

The reality television star officially completed her probation in August 2019.

Luann shared a handwritten note via her Instagram page, announcing the news to all of her followers.

"Hi my friends, I'm happy to say after a difficult year… I've made it through!" she wrote. "I'm humbled and grateful for this life lesson and ready to put the past behind me and move on with my life."
