For the most part, Leah McSweeney has been welcomed by the Real Housewives of New York stars. However, she did feel like Sonja Morgan set her up when she sent her a matching grey sweats set to wear to her fashion show. All of the other ladies got sequined gowns and cocktail dresses. Meanwhile, she wanted Leah to dress like she was running out to the corner store to grab a gallon of milk. Sure, athleisure is really in and Leah has uttered the word “streetwear” more times than I can count, but there was definitely a difference between the outfit Leah got and the looks the other ladies got to wear.
Was Sonja being shady on purpose? Or did she just not think that far ahead. Leah thinks it was shady, but admitted that it’s hard to stay mad at Sonja. She’s probably right about that, but a little fun shade is OK. The women have done way worse on this show than giving someone a free sweats set.
While the Real Housewives of New York ladies have embraced Leah McSweeney with open arms, it seems like Tinsley Mortimer is going through the longest new member hazing of all time. Dorinda Medley has been calling her out all season. Ramona Singer made her bring dishes inside after lunch in the Hamptons. None of the veteran Housewives seem to have Tinsley’s back.
With that said, I wouldn’t invite those women to my wedding if I were Tinsley. Then, again, if she does somehow manage to stay on the show after moving to Chicago with Scott Kluth, she would probably film the wedding; i.e. she’d probably be forced to include some people she’s not so fond of.
Oh, Real Housewives Of New York, you never fail to disappoint. Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile? Well it’s you girl[s], and you should know it!
Love may not be all around, though, but the opposite of love and just as passionate, is hate which is aplenty! Especially when it comes to Dorinda Medley‘s passionate animosity towards Tinsley Mortimer. Seriously – whaaaaat? Hating Tinsley is like hating the lone sock floating around the laundry forever without a mate. Hating Tinsley is like resenting an earring back that doesn’t quite fit snugly to any of your earrings. Hating Tinsley is like going to Costco and getting stuck bad samples.
What I mean is that none of these things should generate strong enough feelings to reach the intensity of anger Dorinda has towards Tinsley. Because what Dorinda truly hates is that her life has gone on without Richard andis no longer the fairy tale it was.
Ah, Sonja Morgan. What can I say? I simply cannot get enough of this woman on the Real Housewives of New York. She is a gift to the reality television world. We’re only five episodes in to Season 12, and Sonja has already given us more iconic moments than I can count.
In both last season and the current one, Sonja has been struggling with letting go of the past. She continually brings up her former life with her ex-husband John Adams Morgan. If you remember Sonja’s famous meltdown over the Morgan letters, you’ll know that this is a very sensitive subject for her. RHONY newbie Leah McSweeney even said she knows more about Sonja’s former life than her current one. But now Sonja is ready to move on with her life and find love, and she’s got a very specific idea of what she’s looking for.
There’s no denying that Ramona Singer is infamous for her lack of a filter on The Real Housewives of New York City. I mean, even Bravo couldn’t resist compiling a package at last season’s reunion of the RHONY OG apologizing (or at least recognizing) over and over that her delivery is almost always crass, rude and downright terrible.
However, that’s never stopped the Singer Stinger before and this time, former RHONY stars Kristen Taekman and Cindy Barshop were on the receiving end of her Ramotional digs.

There’s just something about Harry Dubin. He is somehow connected to pretty much every Real Housewives of New York cast member. Harry was married to Aviva Drescher, of leg-throwing fame. He had a decades-long on-again-off-again thing with Sonja Morgan. Harry has even hooked up with Luann de Lesseps and he’s friends with Lu’s ex-husband Tom D’Agostino. Aviva recently revealed that Harry hooked up with Kelly Bensimon.
And, who can forget that leaked photo of Harry and Ramona Singer making out? Sonja went ballistic when she saw it, hitting her head against the table during last season’s Miami trip. Blaming Tinsley Mortimer has become a go-to tactic for the RHONY ladies, but apparently, that whole fiasco just might be her fault after all. Or at least that’s what Harry theorizes.
At some points, it has felt like Harry Dubin is an honorary cast member on Real Housewives of New York. He has some history with every one of them. His first connection to the group was Sonja Morgan, whom he met years before he got married to Aviva Drescher. Harry has hooked up with Luann de Lesseps and Kelly Bensimon. He was also caught making out with Ramona Singer.
This man is a staple among the New York Housewives and he has a lot of tea to spill about the ladies.
