Leah McSweeney shared her thoughts on Ramona Singer and their "Real Housewives of New York City" drama during an August 13 interview with Entertainment Tonight.

After engaging in a number of tense moments with Ramona, who is an original cast member of the Bravo reality series, Leah, who was added to the show last year on the heels of Bethenny Frankel's exit, admitted that when it comes to Ramona, she let her get away with a lot during the series' 12th season.

"I didn't even get to say this at the reunion and so I'm going to say it now -- maybe I did, I don't know -- watching, in hindsight, I actually let Ramona get away with so much," Leah admitted.

According to Leah, she may have been a bit hesitant to confront the OG because she was new to the show.

"It was my first season. I'm trying to navigate [things], I'm trying to be respectful. I'm trying to also be me. So, I feel like that's never going to happen again," she warned.

"There is something about Ramona, she kinda does that, like, remember in 'True Blood' when the [glamouring], when the vampire, like, looks into [a person's eyes]?" Leah explains, giving a nod to the mind-control technique used by the show's vampire cast.

"I feel like Ramona glamours people," she continued. "I feel like she does glamouring, like, I’m not even kidding. She just does! So, it was hard to stay mad at her. She's one of a kind... She's a special, special human, what can I say?”
