Leah McSweeney fired back at Heather Thomson on her Instagram Stories Monday after seeing that her Real Housewives of New York City castmate had slammed her as “vulgar.”
Just hours after Heather accused Leah of crossing a line by suggesting that a man’s worth is based upon what he is willing to do for his woman, sexually speaking, Leah accused HeAather of cringe-worthy behavior and labeled her “disingenuous.”
“Guess her man isn’t an a– eater!! Why the F is she bringing up her kids? This is more cringe [than] her behavior on tomorrow’s episode,” Leah wrote in the caption of a screenshot of Heather’s interview with Us Weekly.
The following morning, Leah shared two more Instagram Stories regarding her beef with Heather, the first of which spoke of a false narrative.
“I am seeing a narrative emerge that I’m not comfortable with and thus feel the need to speak out. Heather was unable to forge natural connections with any of the women, and that is why she discontinued filming,” Leah wrote in a message to her followers, describing the actual motivation behind Heather’s early exit from the show on season 13.
According to Leah, everything Heather has told the media in the past few weeks about her is a fabrication.
“I took issue with her from the beginning because I’m not a fan of disingenuous people. She says one thing in the press and another to people’s faces. Say what you mean, mean what you say. I never once lied to her or about her,” Leah proceeded. “It’s no secret that I was having a hard time on this trip due to a tremendous personal loss that I was dealing with in real-time. Heather was well aware of this and acknowledged it. I apologized to everyone for being aggressive and squashed it, including with Heather.”
Leah went on in a second post shared to her page. She blamed Heather for “spinning lies” and “openly attacking [her] mental health” and “sobriety” and noted that Heather had falsely accused her of assault in an attempt to “save face.”
“There are some historical issues that we address this season that is far more important than trying to keep Heather relevant, which are being clouded over. I’m proud of this season – it was an incredibly tough time to film/there was a lot of heaviness in the air, and yet we did it and in our own way,” she noted.
In closing, Leah said Heather sequentially confirmed her initial thoughts about her were accurate.
“The entire reason I took issue with her in the first place has now happened to me/come full circle. She defames women to lift herself up,” she stated.
Also, on Instagram on Monday, Leah shared a photo of herself taken by Paper magazine where she poses with one of her breasts bared and her nipple covered with a gold pastie.
A short time later, she shared a second, unedited version of the photo.
“I had wanted the non-photoshopped boob photo to be published, but accidentally the scar from my boob was edited out. Here it is in all its glory for the sake of transparency. Sorry for clogging your feed today!!” Leah wrote in the caption of the second image.
Following the post, Leah received tons of support from her followers, including former Vanderpump Rules cast member Stassi Schroeder.
“Gorge. I have the same scars and love seeing women embrace them!!” Stassi shared.
