Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

The clothing designer will join the cast of The Real Housewives of New York City for Season 12. The RHONY casting news was shared on Friday (November 15) during Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Day 1 of BravoCon 2019. "I brought along the newest Real Housewife of New York City,” Luann de Lesseps said as she and her RHONY castmates, including Leah, took the stage Friday night. “Well, we always make it nice," Dorinda Medley said. "I think it’s an exciting season."

Leah is a mogul and boss, having founded the Married to the Mob clothing brand in 2004, and has expanded her personal brand to include work as a columnist for Penthouse magazine, among other ventures. And, yes, the clothing entrepreneur and mom may look familiar to some Bravo fans having previously appeared on an episode of The Millionaire Matchmaker almost a decade ago in 2010.

The news Leah is joining RHONY comes several months after Bethenny Frankel confirmed her exit from the show following Season 11.
