Luann de Lesseps is back in rehab.

The “Real Housewives of New York” star, who did a stint in rehab last year after her arrest for allegedly kicking a cop, is once again seeking treatment, according to PEOPLE.

Her “RHONY” co-star Bethenny Frankel released a statement on her behalf, saying, “This weekend, Luann was surrounded by her girlfriends and decided — with their support — that in light of recent circumstances, it is the healthiest choice for her not to attend Tuesday’s reunion taping so that she can continue in her healing process.

She continued, “Luann is now surrounded by a core group of people who truly have her best interests at heart and who are working to make sure she gets the help she needs.”

Bravo said that de Lesseps is not currently filming season 10, adding that they support her “decision to focus on her health.”

When she checked into a treatment center last year, de Lesseps said, “I intend to turn this unfortunate incident into a positive life-changing event. Once again, I sincerely apologize for my actions. I have the greatest respect for police officers and the job they do. My actions alleged in the police report do not reflect my core values and my law-abiding character.”
