Luann de Lesseps: Ordered Back to Prison After Drinking Again

Earlier this year, there were eports that Luann de Lesseps was ditching probation requirements to pursue her own interests.

That was alarming all by itself.

On Thursday morning, a Florida judge ordered that Luann be taken into custody for violating the terms of her probation.

This time, there was more to it than falling behind on some of the paperwork included in the terms of her freedom.

This time, she fell off the wagon -- again -- without setting foot in a rehab facility.

We'd love to crack a "Money Can't Buy You Class" joke here, folks, but this sounds serious.

Luann is in a lot of trouble. See for yourself:

UPDATE: Against all odds, Luann's case took a turn for the better. See the details below:

The judge was of the opinion that Luann was not taking the conditions of her freedom seriously. You see this with probation cases sometimes, where someone slowly slips back into living their old life because the fear of prison becomes a memory.

6. The court was alarmed by two things
