Sources Reveal The Alleged Reason Why ‘RHONY’ Cast Were ‘Glad’ Heather Thomson Stopped Filming Season 13 After Feuding With Leah McSweeney!

According to new sources, the Season 13 cast of The Real Housewives of New York City were glad that Heather Thomson decided to stop filming with them after she got into a fight with Leah McSweeney. 

“Heather was kind of like a Debbie Downer,” an insider told Page Six. “And plus, no one trusted her because of everything she talked about in the press after she left the show.”

The insider shared more details on why Thomson didn't get along with the cast. “Basically, she thought she was going to just jump right in and be part of the group, but she’d just been, like, dragging the show and using the show to get press for herself,” the insider told the outlet. “There’s a line you don’t cross. It’s just kind of desperate.”

The insider added that “it just wasn’t working” and Thomson wasn’t meshing well with the cast, which includes newcomer Eboni K. Williams, McSweeney, Singer, Morgan, and de Lesseps.

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.
