Well, well, look what we have here! Our favorite emotional clown, Tinsley Mortimer has been spotted with cameras following her around in New York. It either means mother Dale Mercer now has her under constant surveillance or filming is underway for Real Housewives of New York. The franchise took a heavy hit with the announcement of Bethenny Frankel’s departure. We don’t know if she’s married, moving away, or if another fish is trying to kill her, but we wish her luck. Now that Bethenny has flown from the tragedy that is Tinsley’s love life, will we be sustained with
the last 15 minutes of LuAnn de Lesseps cabaret career?
Maybe not, thanks to Leah McSweeney. There has been speculation she is ready to jump in and filled the void left by Bethenny’s exit. Those are big shoes to fill, so good luck with that. Leah isn’t exactly a headline-maker. She is a single mom and founder of street brand, Married to the Mob. No word on whether or not she has dated Harry Dubin, which seems to be a requirement of most NY housewives. While details about Leah remain scarce, allegedly she likes people who text her back. Apparently Leah and Tinsley are hanging out, which is good because Tinsley needs a partner when FaceTiming her embryos. Now we wait and see who brings what to the table, and if Leah has an apple on her plate.
Is nothing sacred these days? Can we not allow ourselves as a society the enjoyment of a surprise? Must every exciting event contain spoilers? YEP! According to Page Six, Leah and Tinsley were out and about in New York. Thanks to the eagle eyes of a “Housewives” fan account, some video was posted on Instagram. Bravo has repeatedly said they do not comment on casting, but you don’t have to be much of an Einstein to figure this one out.
Now that Bethenny is gone, the show will need some fresh blood. Along with Leah’s clothing brand, she writes as an advice column for Penthouse magazine. Leah also co-hosts the podcast, Improper Etiquette. Today I learned Penthouse magazine still exists!
The 36-year-old has one daughter, Kier, from a previous relationship. Apparently this is not the first time Leah has been in front of the cameras with Tinsley. It is rumored the two have already filmed a “workout scene”.
So Bethenny won’t be joining us on any trips down Macrame Lane with Ramona Singer next year. But a new person for Ramona to
torture enjoy would be fun! Not sure Ramona wants to toss any plastic stemware at this one though, Leah looks scrappy. What is next for RHONY, Jill Zarin? Aviva Drescher’s leg making a special guest appearance? We’ll just have to wait and see, I’m already looking forward to Christmas in the Bezerkshires.
TELL US- ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO LEAH BEING ON THE SHOW? WILL RHONY BE OKAY WITHOUT BETHENNY? WHO DO YOU WANT TO SEE JOIN THE CAST?
