In video taken outside of the Cipriani restaurant on July 17, Ramona Singer, Tinsley Mortimer, and Sonja Morgan discussed LuAnn’s recent stint in rehab and sent her their well wishes.

“You know what, we all feel bad for Luann and you know, it will be okay,” said Ramona to TMZ.

“Sad. I feel badly for her. I hope she gets better,” stated Tinsley.

And when Sonja was asked if she would miss Luann at the reunion, she responded “very much.”  That video of the women is below.

Bravo also released the official RHONY season 10 reunion seating chart, and not surprisingly, Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel are sitting the closest to Andy.

Host Andy took to his Instagram Stories during the reunion filming to update fans on how it was going! It appears it was a rather intense one.

“Still shooting the Real Housewives of New York City reunion. 6:45 pm, and I’ve just asked for my first aspirin. I need it. I need it. Five aspirin,” said Andy. About two hours later, Andy revealed filming had wrapped.

In more RHONY news, E! News is reporting that LuAnn was struggling with a lawsuit filed against her by her former husband, Count Alexandre de Lesseps, and their two kids, Noel de Lesseps and Victoria de Lesseps.

“She was having a very hard time with the drama of lawsuit surrounding her, and has been reflecting on all of her bad mistakes recently and completely hit a wall. She definitely thought she could handle incorporating alcohol back into her life casually, but eventually spiraled out of control,” an insider explained.

The Count and their kids filed a lawsuit against LuAnn earlier this month, accusing her of violating their 2009 divorce agreement and failing to set up a trust for Noel and Victoria. A short time later, LuAnn checked herself back into rehab, where she is expected to remain for at least 30 days.

“Nobody has seen or heard from her” since she checked in, the insider confirmed.

While LuAnn has reportedly disconnected from the outside world as she treats her substance abuse issues, those around her are “very supportive” of her decision to get help and have “encouraged her to stay as long as possible to get the help she needs.”

“All of her RHONY castmates missed her today during the taping but knew that this was for the best,” explained the source. “All of the ladies are very concerned and hopes that she will take this serious and get her health back on track. Everyone is rooting for her.”
