After leading the charge to skinny-dip in the pool of Ramona Singer's Hamptons home in the April 23 episode of RHONY, Leah encouraged Tinsley Mortimer to do the same. "Rip it off, bitch! Get in the pool," Leah told her friend as she started to disrobe. "You know what, this is a f--k you to Dale, this is a f--k you to society, high society. F--k you, Park Avenue."

Dale is, of course, Tinsley's beloved mother, Dale Mercer, who is just the epitome of class and sophistication. When Leah appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home on April 23, she explained via video chat that she didn't mean to offend Tinsley's mom. "I love Dale so much," Leah told Andy Cohen in the above clip. "And I have to apologize to her right now for saying that because that woman is incredible, I adore her."

Leah then clarified what she really meant by her comments. "It was just me trying to tell Tinsley, 'Just forget everybody's expectations of you and get wild,'" she said. "But I love you, Dale! I'm sorry. I didn't mean it."
