While viewers are still getting to know Leah McSweeney, the newest cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, she already has lots of tea on her fellow ‘Wives. When she appeared on an episode of The Daily Dish podcast, Leah opened up about the rest of the ladies, including who she’s closest with and who caused the most drama. 

When asked who was the “biggest pot-stirrer this season,” Leah hesitated for a moment before giving her final answer. “It might have been me... I don’t know,” she said before deciding. “I think freaking Sonja. Like I don’t know if it’s conscious or not, I don’t know.” 

As for who the newcomer is closest with, she explained that she has probably kept in closest contact with Dorinda Medley recently. 

“That might surprise everybody right now,” Leah admitted, adding that she also regularly speaks with Luann, Ramona, and Tinsley. “But I think me and Dorinda are more like, just chatty, you know? We’re chatty people. We like, FaceTime and talk on the phone. It was like that the whole season, to be honest. You’ll see.” 

In fact, Leah’s relationship with Dorinda goes beyond their constant correspondence. 

“Dorinda really... I have to say, and Luann, too, they really both championed me and came to my defense when I needed them, and really both had my back,” she said.
