Leah McSweeney’s descent into drunken anarchism was, by far, the most hilarious and entertaining display ever. Leah wasted rage against the establishment and Ramona Singer’s tiki torches will surely reverb throughout the rest of the season.
It seemed to cause a divide of the Real Housewives of New York cast. At least in that moment. Sonja Morgan and Tinsley Mortimer followed Leah’s lead while the more refined ladies stayed indoors, fully clothed. Will that dynamic change anything long term? Maybe, maybe not. But a few interesting things happened that, according to Leah, set the stage for future drama. Hopefully, friendships too.
Leah spoke with Bravo’s The Daily Dish about the latest episode and what fans can expect for the rest of the season. First, Leah was asked to identify the biggest pot-stirrer of the cast. She said, “It might have been me… I don’t know. I think freaking Sonja. Like if it’s conscious or not, I don’t know.”
Sonja had already created drama during Ramona’s Hampton’s weekend in a hapless attempt to mend fences between Leah and Dorinda Medley. It looks like that trend will continue. But will Sonja turn on Leah? She did admit to being hurt that Leah questioned her keeping the Morgan name.
Leah did not list Sonja as a cast member that she speaks regularly with now. She is close with Luann de Lesseps, Ramona, and Tinsley. But Leah named Dorinda as the one she feels the deepest connection with.
“That might surprise everybody right now. But I think me and Dorinda are more like just chatty, you know?,” Leah explained, “we’re chatty people. We like, FaceTime and talk on the phone. It was like that the whole season, to be honest. You’ll see.”

Dorinda did have a mother hen moment with Leah during the last episode when Leah was totally wasted and not properly dressed. Maybe that was the start of a trusting friendship. Leah revealed that their relationship goes deeper than just pleasantries. She said, “Dorinda really…I have to say, and Luann, too, they really both championed me and came to my defense when I needed them, and really both had my back.”
