When Heather Thomson surprisingly walked away from Real Housewives of New York, she claimed to be leaving to focus on her family and business. Quickly rumors surfaced that Heather’s departure had more to do with saving her marriage than anything else. Heather is now putting the rumors about her marriage to rest and is clearing the air about her departure from RHONY.
Heather makes it clear that her marriage is more than good. “There is no truth to rumored problems. Jonathan and I are perfectly fine. We are in our 12th year of marriage. We are happily raising our family together.”
While Heather claims her people had refuted the rumors before they leaked, gossip mags still decided to run with the fabricated story. “Someone actually called my publicist for a comment and he advised the rumors were simply not true but folks decided to run with the gossip anyway. You can imagine we were cracking up when it ran.”
As for her departure from RHONY, Heather says time was a big factor since filming the show does take up so much of her time. “It was time to move on. And for just that reason- time. And how quickly it goes and how much of my time the show requires. This decision was easy because it was the right time for me and my family. It’s not about trouble. It’s about prioritizing my time. We all get the same 24 hours in a day it’s just up to us each individually how we want to use it.”
Heather admits that leaving RHONY was hard but says she’s looking forward to the change and focusing on the import things in her life. “We are happily moving on from RHONYC just as happily as we entered into the opportunity. Change is often difficult but positive.”
