During last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New York, Ramona Singer took it upon herself to reveal that Leah McSweeney has bipolar 2 disorder. Apparently, she saw it in an article
that Avery probably sent to her that she read. She didn’t even bring it up to Leah herself. Instead, she just talked behind her back and shared her unsolicited medical advice.
Ramona said that one of her friends told her, “Ramona listen, this Leah girl, she writes a blog and on a blog she says she’s bipolar.” She even declared, “That explains it all!” The ignorance is real. Ramona said, “I found out she’s bipolar and she’s on medication and I know people who are bipolar and you cannot mix alcohol with meds, it makes you act not responsible. It’s actually very dangerous.” In Mexico, Leah lashed out at Ramona, telling her, “Don’t talk about my vagina and don’t talk about my mental health.” Damn right. You tell her, Leah.
During a confessional, Leah shared, “I was diagnosed with bipolar 2 disorder on my 30th birthday and really dedicated the last seven years of my life to getting it under control and to getting myself in a good place.” She also addressed Ramona’s claims about drinking on medication, sharing, “I’m not even on medication, so for her to be talking about it in this way is despicable.”
After the episode, Ramona tweeted “It was never my intention to shame Leah about her mental health issues.” Then what was your intention, Ramona?

Ramona claimed, “I understand its her story to tell,” but Ramona was the one who brought this up on the show, not Leah herself. Yes, Leah wrote about it in an article, but an article written by an unknown person is a way different level of attention compared to someone sharing this information on a popular reality TV show.
Ramona concluded, “Takes a lot of courage & strength for her to go public in an article about her struggles, which I admire. I only wish her well & want to help support her in the right way.”

For a woman who talks a big game about supporting other women, Ramona really isn’t good at it herself. And let’s not forget, at no point in that tweet did Ramona ever apologize.
