The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Leah McSweeney Dishes On Feud With Heather Thomson; Says ‘She’s Lucky Cameras Were There’

Spilling the tea!

Leah McSweeney is proving she’s no longer the new girl on the Real Housewives of New York block.

The Married to the Mob designer is dishing on her season 13 feud with former NY Housewife Heather Thomson.

The two got into more than a few major fights while filming season 13, and it’s safe to say they will NEVER be friends.

Leah appeared on the April 27 episode of the Chick in the Office podcast, where she addressed her drama with Heather and claims that their feud made Heather quit filming.

According to Leah, Heather’s camp leaked the details of their drama to Us Weekly.

The gossip publication recently posted a story claiming that Heather’s feud with Leah drove her off the show.

“Heather could see Leah was acting up for the cameras and using behavior she considered demeaning and exploitative and frankly, crossed a line,” an insider told Us Weekly. “Heather wanted no part of Leah, so after she left that weekend, Heather had no interest in continuing the season at all and stopped filming.”

Leah denies bullying Heather off RHONY. She admits things got heated between them while filming but says they didn’t vibe due to Heather’s personality.

“You know, I don’t know… I don’t know who… Most likely [she] planted a story in US weekly, which is why I’ll never talk to them again, saying that I bum-rushed her off the show, or did whatever, I was acting exploitative…,” Bravo star explained.

“I’m trying to stay sane on the cameras, so people don’t know how bad sh*t I really am… she’s really lucky the cameras were there, to be honest,” she continued. “Sometimes, you just don’t vibe with people. She’s just kind of that chick that’s like, ‘You shouldn’t do this, and I know everything.’ I’m just not with that; that’s just not my cup of tea.”

“Look, she has a strong mind of her own … if she wanted to stay on or come to other events, she could have, but she didn’t want to, I guess. I don’t really know,” she added.

The Real Housewives of New York City season 13 premieres May 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
