Luann De Lesseps has had many ups and downs in the last few months, from her divorce to Tom D’Agostino after seven months of marriage to her recent arrest. She was arrested on Christmas Eve after allegedly kicking a police officer and being intoxicated at a hotel in Palm Beach, Florida according to E! News.

The Real Housewives of New York star allegedly trespassed with a man in a hotel room while a housekeeper was doing turndown service. A security guard walked in to find the two in bed and failed at trying to get them to leave. The guard then called the authorities. When the police arrived, they saw De Lesseps with her friend, Julie Olson.

Olson reportedly complied by leaving but De Lesseps still refused, according to the police report. Olson said the man who was in the room previously dated De Lesseps, and he tried helping the reality star to understand they went to the wrong hotel room.

So what has she been up to since the arrest? She has returned to court several times, done interviews, and even did a cabaret show. Here are seven things you need to know.
