Luann de Lesseps is reorganizing her life, and it’s obviously going well. The Real Housewives of New York City star showed us just how well Tuesday in a video that showed her glowing and breaking into a happy dance, all while wearing a bikini.

De Lesseps has struggled following the August breakup of her seven-month marriage to Tom D’Agostino Jr. She was downing at least seven drinks a day and was arrested for disorderly intoxication on Dec. 23, when she showed up in a hotel room that wasn’t hers. As People reports, she was charged with not only disorderly intoxication but also battery to an officer, resisting arrest with violence, and threatening a public servant. If convicted, she could face time in prison.

After her arrest, de Lesseps checked in to a treatment facility and quit drinking altogether, replacing it with yoga and meditation.

The 52-year-old reality star is the latest in a string of famous women who aren’t 22 or related to the Kardashians to rock a bikini for the camera.

Brooke Shields and Kelly Ripa flashed their beach bodies during their respective spring-break trips. Shields, also 52, joked that she’d encountered “Another Blue Lagoon,” in a reference to her 1980 movie, in the caption of one of the photos that she shared from a tropical getaway. Ripa’s husband, Mark Consuelos, posted an image of his 47-year-old wife.

Who else needs a vacation right about now?
