Luann de Lesseps Gushes About RHONY’s Newest Cast Member Leah McSweeney; Says “I Think People Are Really Going To Connect To Her”

Luann de Lesseps is opening up about Real Housewives of New York City's newest cast member Leah McSweeney. The Countess and Friends performer shares what viewers can expect from the fashion designer in Season 12.

“She’s great, she’s downtown and she’s not afraid,” Luann told HollywoodLife. “She gets in there, and it’s not an easy group to come into. I think she holds her own, and at the same time she’s vulnerable.”

Luann thinks McSweeney will receive a warm welcome from viewers when the show returns to Bravo in 2020. “I think people are really going to connect to her,” she admitted, adding, “She’s a young girl and she has a daughter.”

Luann also reveals that it’s also a great time for Leah to join the show because everyone will get to shine this season now that Bethenny Frankel’s gone. “It’s such a great season. We all get to show ourselves and have more time to talk about our own life and our own stories, and it’s not always about Bethenny [now],” Luann explained.

Luann also guarantees that the upcoming season will feature lots of drama. “Obviously, there’s always drama. When you have that many women together there’s bound to be drama,” she revealed, teasing that “there’s shifts in alliances” in season 12.
