Heather Thomson Claims Leah McSweeney Played Up The Drama On ‘RHONY’ When Cameras Were On; Says “I Think There’s A Line That Gets Crossed”

Heather Thomson reveals that Leah McSweeney played up the drama when the cameras were on while filming Season 13 of The Real Housewives of New York City.

“We’d be talking and then the camera would go on and it would be a different scenario. I think there’s a line that gets crossed,” Heather told Us Weekly. “I am very much about individuality and letting people be who they are. I say it on the show, exposing one’s body, that kind of talk empowers some people. Some people being buttoned up and a little bit more polite, someone would say empowers other people. I’m not going to judge that.”

“I would say it was uncomfortable for me being a mother. Where she crossed a line [is] saying what a man’s worth is,” she clarified to the publication. “That crossed the line for me on so many levels because I would never diminish a man to that. I was offended on different levels. My kid’s faces, like, flashed in front of me sitting at that table.”

Heather explained that she found the language Leah used “vulgar,” even though she usually doesn’t get offended by much.

“It’s just not what I talk about. I swear like a sailor, I have a potty mouth. I say the f word all the time. … I’m not offended by that type [of] talk. I don’t think people should be,” she clarified. “However … when I’m in mixed company, I try to judge the crowd, so to speak. I think if you’re making someone uncomfortable, maybe you can pivot. But also that person that you’re making uncomfortable also could try to pivot. There’s always cooperation to be had. There’s always a way to meet in the middle.”

Heather added that she knew Leah was going to try to stir up drama. During the episode, Leah read quotes from Heather’s podcast about the other women.

“She only read the headlines. No one at that table actually listened to the podcast. So I knew she was going to gun for me,” Thomson said. “I was given a heads-up … from one of the other women on the show.”

She continued: “I wasn’t really that worried about it because I still to this day, stand behind the podcast and everything that I have said about the franchise, my experience on the franchise, all the women on the franchise and the jokes that get fired at you on Watch What Happens Live. You have to quick-fire responses.”

“It’s part of the show we’re on. We’re supposed to pick on each other a little bit. That’s kind of how it is,” she told Us Weekly.
