The newly sober Leah McSweeney recently appeared on the “Not Skinny But Not Fat” podcast, where the newest member of “The Real Housewives of New York City” accused her co-star, Ramona Singer, of trying to have her fired from her full-time position on the long-running Bravo reality series.
According to Leah, who was added to the show’s cast last August, Ramona attempted to have her booted from the show after she went off the rails during a girls group trip to Newport, Rhode Island.
“Ramona tried to get me kicked off the entire show that weekend,” Leah revealed, according to a July 2 report shared by Reality Blurb.
Leah then suggested that when it comes to the ladies of the “Real Housewives of New York City” cast, she seems to be held to different standards than her co-stars.
“I can’t think of a reason why I’d be held to such different standards than everybody else. I mean again, I’m the tattooed one, I’m the one with the smaller apartment, I’m the one that lives downtown with the graffiti,” she shared.
As the 12th season of “The Real Housewives of New York City” continues, Leah said fans should expect to see the drama between her and Ramona intensify even further.
“I don’t know, maybe she thinks she’s like, above me, I’m not really sure. But it all plays out in the second half of the season — it only gets worse,” Leah teased.
According to Leah, she feels that things that were said to her during production on the currently airing episodes were absolutely outlandish.
“The things that happen and the things that are said to me are beyond. Maybe if the women were all these well-behaved, ladies-who-lunch or whatever, but that’s not the case. I know Ramona thinks she’s very high society, but that’s a joke, obviously,” Leah continued.
Although Ramona has used her past to excuse herself from her behavior during past episodes, Leah slammed her as a hypocrite for doing so and suggested that her defense was actually her way of manipulating the cast.
“That was like, really disturbing that someone would use their [past]. Also, you’re 63, I’m sorry. Time to move on,” she said. “Did Sonja give you the same flashbacks when we were in the orchard last week? Was she making you think of your alcoholic mother? I felt terrible when she told me, I didn’t realize she was being very manipulative.”
