Real Housewives Of New York Leah McSweeney

She may float like a butterfly but she sure stings like a bitch! Leah McSweeney has been, I dare say, a perfect addition to this season of The Real Housewives of New York City.

So far, the RHONY newbie seems to have hit it off with each of her fellow ‘Wives. She’s chucked tiki torches in the Hamptons, exposed the ladies to the Russian Bathhouse, stuck up for Tinsley Mortimer and called out everything from white supremacy to Sonja Morgan‘s unending delusions. However, it appears Leah‘s budding friendship with Ramona Singer hits the rocks during the cast trip to Newport, R.I. due to her drinking. Ahead of the episode, she took to social media to address the OG’s issues with her and trust me, it’s a takedown of epic proportions.

Leah kicked off her lengthy post by explaining her state of mind while filming tonight’s drunken antics. “Hurricane season is here and tonight it’s ‘Hurricane Leah,'” she captioned the mirror selfie. “I want to preface this episode by saying I went on this trip to Rhode Island not really wanting to even go. I didn’t know the women that well at this point, and I was in an already-vulnerable mood.

She also addressed the drama surrounding wanting her sister to come on the trip, though it appears part of her caption has since been deleted. “I wanted my sister there for support. She was also six months postpartum and looking forward to her first baby-free overnight trip. Moms: haven’t we all been there?” the RHONY newbie wrote.

Here’s the deleted part: “So yes, I was upset when Ramona rescinded her invite for the third time. My sister is my best friend and beyond. You just don’t fuck with her. Ever!! Did I get wasted and act crazy at dinner? Absolutely. Did I do anything that none of the other women haven’t done before? Nope.”

Leah certainly has a point there. While we have yet to see exactly how naked wasted she gets in tonight’s episode, the other ‘Wives have literally have not a single (wooden) leg to stand on between them if they’re being judgmental. Over the years we’ve seen Dorinda Medley stab herself in the hand while sloshed in Cartagena during Season 10. Luann de Lesseps infamously fell into a bush in Mexico in Season 9. (Furthermore, there’s also, you know, that whole ordeal of getting drunk, assaulting a cop and getting arrested after slipping off her handcuffs back in 2017…) And don’t even get me started on Sonja‘s constantly problematic, sexually aggressive blackouts in virtually every episode.

However, Leah gets back to the problem at hand: that old Singer Stinger. “But enough about me. Tune in tonight for Ramona,” she concludes. “Watch her get embarrassed by MY ‘bad’ behavior. Yes, you heard it right: the woman who defecates on hotel room floors (and expects others to clean it up), who calls her own friends fat, and who tries to flex on IG during a pandemic is supposedly embarrassed that I got shitfaced. Please!”

Several Bravolebrities also expressed their support for the rookie in her plight against Ramona. “So well [said],” Dorinda commented, while Season 12’s unofficial Friend of the Housewives Elyse Slaine wrote, “Love you and love your sister! Glad we got to meet her! I made some mistakes on that trip, and you know I felt terrible about it. Ramona told me to have her back, so I did… Big Mistake!!!”

Even Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jackie Goldschneider also added her two cents, commenting, “Love you girlfriend!! Can’t wait to watch!” (Who would’ve even guessed she and Leah knew each other?)

While we all love when Ramona becomes a complete and total monster, all I can say is step aside and bow down to Leah, bitches. There’s officially a new gangster in town and we have no choice but to stan.
