The Real Housewives of New York City: Thriving İn Chaos On The Show

New cast member Leah McSweeney of The Real Housewives of New York City recently shared that not only is the show extremely real, but it’s also a mature environment for those living in chaos.

She shared with The Cut that despite the insistence of some viewers that the show is scripted, it is extremely real. “Sometimes people wonder if this s**t is fake,” she said, referring to the cast struggles. “It’s not.” It happens when the cameras aren’t rolling, it happens 24/7. It’s 100% real.”

Leah McSweeney also shared that she was ready to dive headlong into the drama. She quickly defended her friend, Tinsley Mortimer, when Dorinda Medley picked her up at a party during the first episode. Medley tormented Mortimer and finally, Leah McSweeney, who was sitting next to Mortimer, said to Medley, “Why are you acting this way? The party was the first time Leah McSweeney met Medley on the show as well.

McSweeney said that being able to thrive in a chaotic environment is what makes a good housewife. “I thrive in chaos,” he told The Cut. “That’s part of being a good housewife.” It’s better to love chaos and conflict, because it’s part of the show, and it’s part of the dynamic among women”.

Although she can thrive on chaos, watching Rony scared her. She admits she’s a fan of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and Beverly Hills. But she had a hard time watching RHONY. “Watching her get high, I was starting to freak out. I should turn it off,” she said.

She also shared with Ramona Singer in Interview Magazine how she chose her slogan: “I can float like a butterfly, but I sting like a bitch. She said, “Well, I love boxing. It’s a comedy from Muhammad Ali’s quote, of course. A lot of people look at me and think I’m from LA because of my blond hair and whatnot. They automatically think I’m some kind of valley girl. But as you know, I can get a bad rap if I’m pushed into a corner. Other than that, I’m very nice. I’m a nice person. But if I feel disrespected or threatened in any way, I can get a little high.”
