Leanne Brown Claims Her Feud With Dawn Ward On RHOCheshire ‘Drove Her To The Point Of Nervous Breakdown’

Leanne Brown is getting candid about her feud with former bestie Dawn Ward. The former Real Housewives of Cheshire claims that her fall out with ‘Wardy’ almost “drove her to the point of nervous breakdown.”

“I left the series because it had driven me to the point of a nervous breakdown, so it really was the right decision to go,” she told Closer Magazine.

She added: “I’d had enough. There was too much drama in my life and I just couldn’t cope with being in the same environment as Dawn when filming.”

As previously reported, Leanne and her husband Wes had called in lawyers over a £500,000 loan that Dawn and husband Ashley had allegedly not repaid. Their teams are still arguing about the issue, reports The Sun.

Brown admitted she’d resorted to treatments to recover from the drama: “I’ve had therapy and I have tried crystal healing. I do meditation as much as I can and have hypnotherapy.

“Luckily I’m still friends with Tanya [Bardsley.] She became one of my best mates.”

Leanne makes it clear that there's no going back, insisting their friendship with Dawn is over.

“Our friendship has gone down the pan. I won’t ever speak to Dawn again. Adding: “I don’t trust her and, when someone has hurt you that deep, there is no going back.”

“The feud is still on-going. It was very upsetting- and still is now. It has made me grow so much as a person, and now, I have had the strength to come away from the relationship and build myself back up again.”

Leanne says she can’t even watch her former co-stars on the show without feeling anxious about the poisonous atmosphere created by their bitchiness.

“I don’t regret being on the show because there were fun times. But when it stops being fun you have to look after yourself," she told The Sun.

“That’s what I did. I was in a pretty bad place and I’d had enough. There’s only so much frustration and drama someone can take. When that drama is only part of your life, you can put it to one side. But having to live through it every single day consumed me, it consumed my whole brain.”

“The arguments can be toxic and I still get anxiety when I watch the show, even though I’m not on it any more. It’s just not nice. You always have to be mindful of what you say because, if you try to play a game, in the end you’ll lose.”

“I stand by everything I said on the show. But the majority of the girls are in it for themselves, they have a game plan. Hurtful as it is, only a few of them were really my friends. I’m far happier now I’m spending more time with my family and my real friends.”
