Leah alleges that after she got a little too tipsy during the cast trip to Rhode Island – Ramona made it clear she wanted her off the show for good. Ramona even went as far as to try and get Leah fired from the show for her drunken antics.
“Ramona tried to get me kicked off the entire show that weekend,” Leah revealed on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, before adding that Ramona was “probably” just jealous of her.
“I can’t think of any other reason why I’d be held to such different standards than everybody else unless she just sees me as like, I mean, again, I’m the tattooed one. I’m the one with a smaller apartment. I’m the one that lives downtown with the graffiti. I don’t know. Maybe she just doesn’t — maybe she thinks she’s like above me or whatever. I’m not really sure, you know, but it all plays out in the second half the season. It only gets worse,” Leah explained.
Leah knows her drinking, during the trip to Rhode Island, annoyed her co-stars; however, she doesn’t regret it at all.
“I spent so many years not drinking, you know, most of my adult life, for nine years from age 27 to 36, I didn’t drink at all,” she said. “So I’m much more comfortable living in that way. Like I have much more practice living and dealing with life without alcohol. Like everyone basically like got to see me — and I didn’t start drinking because of the show, I started drinking before I was even passed for the show.”
She also clarifies that her decision to drink had NOTHING to do with joining the show.
“I think like it was the edit or whatever it is, or people were like, ‘Oh my God, she broke her sobriety for the show.’ And it’s like, ‘No, I didn’t.’ I broke my sobriety way before the show. And it was a very personal choice, and it was something I have no regrets doing.”
Leah recently revealed that she is three months sober.
As for Ramona, she declined to comment on Leah’s allegations.
The Real Housewives of New York airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET.
