Hmm…does Leah McSweeney have Page Six on speed dial?
According to Page Six, an anonymous source spoke with the gossip site to say that “Heather Thomson tried to find herself a role on the “Real Housewives of New York” as a crusading moral ally to Eboni K. Williams.”
The mystery source went on to insinuate that Heather was trying to make friends with Eboni to stay relevant on RHONY as “Production sources say Thomson doesn’t have an obvious clique among the regular cast, and she may have thought that backing Williams in her often-racially-tinged battles with the “Housewives” stars was a “way to fit in.”
The source certainly sounds suspect as they clearly have an agenda against Thomson stating the real reason Heather left was that she was mortified about the ‘articulate‘ comment directed towards Eboni, which came off as a microaggression:
“Insiders said that they believed Thomson had been “embarrassed” when her alleged play blew up in her face and decided to stop filming.”
“She started making excuses about why she couldn’t show up for shoots,” said an insider.
I’ll take this article with a grain of salt as this source clearly has an agenda. Heather’s appearance was cringeworthy; however, Leah certainly was no picnic to deal with so I understand Heather wanting to stop filming. As for Heather using Eboni? I do wince when I hear how Heather thinks she understands black culture just because she worked for Puffy so perhaps there is an ounce of truth to that.
RHONY airs Tuesdays on Bravo.
Thoughts on the article? Who do you think is the source?
