Over the weekend, the reality star took to Instagram Live to address speculation she might have gone under the knife. Leah owned up to it all and said she had no problem sharing what she did.
Leah said, “People are DM’ing me like crazy inquiring why I have black eyes and asking if I got a nose job, asking if I got beat up. I am not trying to hide anything from anybody.”
She added, “I got a rhinoplasty and septoplasty. I could not be happier. I’ve been wanting one for some freaking long and now I can also breathe which is great. I love my doctor. He’s a great guy. His name is Dr. Daniel Maman. I’m just never gonna be one of those bitches that pretends it’s not work and it’s contour makeup because that’s weird.”
The announcement comes amid reports Leah is fighting. Bravo during contract negotiations for next season.
According to reports, Leah is holding out on signing her contract due to her belief Bravo is lowballing her hardcore. Sources say Bravo paid Leah around $6k an episode for the first season of “Real Housewives of New York.” She reportedly took home around $60k for the first season. The network only offered her a small raise for another go despite being a fan-favorite.
Prior to the contract negotiation reports, Leah thanked the network and producers for such a great first season. She shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the reunion taping captioned, “Wish I had more pics from that day! The stage was incredible. The amount of work and diligence that was put into having an in person reunion was beyond. I’m so grateful that my first reunion wasn’t on zoom! Thank you @bravoandy @shed_media @bravotv for everything. ?”
