In an exclusive interview to Global News, Luanne is getting honest about her feelings of the new season.

An obvious absence this season is Bethenny Frankel, although the Countess doesn't seem to be missing her

“You get to see more of us, because I feel like Bethenny took up a lot of oxygen in the room,” she said.

Luann has faced her own set of challenges as of late. She was previously charged with battery, trespass in an occupied structure and disorderly intoxication in Palm Beach, Florida in December 2017.

She was taken into custody in April 2019 after she tested positive for the presence of alcohol, and failed to provide documentation showing that she attended her required Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. She had her probation extended until August 2019.

This season follows her journey through this difficult time. When asked about filming post probation, the reality star says, "It was very hard and it was a very difficult time for me. I got through it and I rose to the cabaret stage so I hope people will be inspired by that."

Luann de Lesseps attends the Global Lyme Alliance Fourth Annual New York City Gala.

She went on to talk about what separates the New York women from the rest of the Real Housewives

"I think there’s no place like New York for that kind of energy. People just love to see the city and they love to see us living large in the city," she said

"Our friendships are deep and they have been for many years so I think that’s highly relatable to all. I think people can feel that," she continued.

As for the drama? Well, apparently it gets good!

"We have a lot of fun this season and a lot of drama. And, as always, because, you know, when you have that many women together there’s always drama," she said.

"You’ll see a new housewife and how she steps into a not so easy group to step into."

Season 12 premieres on April 2!
