Leah McSweeney Addresses Her Alleged Feud With Heather Thomson!

Leah McSweeney took to her Instagram Stories to address her alleged feud with Heather Thomson, which Bravo teased in the Season 13 trailer of The Real Housewives of New York City.

After multiple outlets reported that Thomson quit the Bravo hit reality series after she got into a fight with the Married to the Mob designer, Leah addressed the topic via her Instagram Stories.

“I don’t like women who… slut shame other women. Act mortally superior to other women. Plastic surgery shame other women. Gossip about other women doing drugs when you know damn well they’re done drugs also,” she wrote. 

She added, “And lastly I don’t like when white women who call black women “articulate.” Especially while acting like the queen of wokeness.”

Although McSweeney didn’t call out Thomson by name, some claims she mentioned are similar to past comments that Thomson has made. A source told Page Six that the allegations in McSweeney’s post will play out in the upcoming season.

Leah then shared a fan page’s post via her Instagram Story which the post, which included a GIF of Thomson saying “Yeah.”

The post read as, “Did Leah check you and make you leave RHONY?” 

Leah responded by adding a face with tears of joy emoji.

However, Leah got serious and addressed the topic via her Instagram Story by sharing a screenshot of a DM she sent Thomson, which the DM read as follow: 

“Hey I’ve been meaning to reach out but was dealing with services for grandma etc. let me know if u can talk at some point on phone or in person.”

Leah captioned the post with, “This narrative that I bullied her off the show and she is a victim is so false I typically wouldn’t say anything but it’s just so far from the truth that I must. Was also dealing with losing my grandmother during that time and I reached out to her to apologize for yelling at her and calling her a Karen.”

The news comes after sources revealed that Thomson stopped filming the series due to her feud with McSweeney.

“Heather’s popular history with the old cast and the excitement about new cast member Eboni Williams prompted production to maneuver her return,” a source told Us Weekly, noting that Ramona Singer invited Thomson to the Hamptons for the weekend during production. “Shortly after she arrived, Leah [McSweeney] and Heather butt heads. Their exchanges got messy and included some name-calling.”

The source added that Heather was “stunned” as she “had minimal interaction” with Leah prior to season 13. While the two women crossed paths before during season 12 at Dorinda Medley’s house, their exchange at the dinner party was “uneventful,” the insider revealed.

“Heather could see Leah was acting up for the cameras and using behavior she considered demeaning and exploitative and frankly, crossed a line,” the source continued. “Heather wanted no part of Leah so after she left that weekend Heather had no interest in continuing the season at all and stopped filming.”

Bravo teased about Thomson and McSweeney’s feud in the season 13 trailer, which Bravo released last week. In the teaser, Leah appears to call Heather a “Karen.”

Heather appeared on RHONY for seasons 5 to 7 as a full-time cast member. She left the show in 2015 after three seasons and has appeared as a “guest” in Seasons 8-10 and 12.

McSweeney is returning for Season 13 along with Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan. They will be joined by Eboni K. Williams, who made history as the show's first official black cast member. Motivational speaker, Bershan Shaw is appearing as a “friend” for the show in season 13.
