This season of Real Housewives of New York has taught LuAnn de Lesseps a few very valuable lessons about maintaining a successful relationship with her boyfriend Jacques Azoulay.

Last night’s Season 5 Reunion Part 2 episode revisited the girls’ crazy trip to St. Barts – specifically, LuAnn’s encounter with the Johnny Depp look-alike Tomas and her subsequent cover-up to Jacques – and LuAnn was forced to address again her unsavory conduct on Season 5, Episode 13: “Pirate Booty Call” and Season 5, Episode 14: “Slutty Island.”

While she maintained, as before, that she did not hook up with Tomas and that she and Jacques are just fine, even LuAnn can now admit there were some mistakes to be learned from during the incident.

According to her latest Bravo blog, LuAnn’s take-aways from TomasGate are threefold.

“I realize now more than ever that to be a good girlfriend, I have to be forthright yet kind in what I say and do,” she wrote. “I’ve learned that tequila clouds my judgment and that it’s better to take a car home than a ride from a pirate.”

Finally, she added, “I’ve also learned that Jacques loves for me who I am and that he trusts me regardless of how things looked on the show.”

The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
