Heather Thomson supposedly stop filming Real New York City housewives because of an evil feud with Leah McSweeney.
After fans called for Heather’s return for a few years, the production apparently agreed that it would fit well with the season 13 cast and brought them back. Apparently, however, she did not agree with all of them as they had hoped.
“Heather’s popular story with the old cast and the excitement of new cast members Eboni K. Williams caused production to maneuver their return, ”a source told us Weekly.
Apparently, Heather had an ugly exchange with Leah in the Hamptons after that Ramona singer invited the fashion designer to her home for the weekend, but the friendly gesture turned into a disaster.
“Shortly after you arrived, Leah and Heather [butted] Heads. Their exchanges got messy and included some names, ”the insider revealed.
Heather was reportedly “stunned” for just hanging out with Leah up to that point Dorinda MedleyIs at home in The Berkshires and their interaction went very well the first time around. The same cannot be said of their time together in the Hamptons, however. Allegedly disgusted by Leah’s “humiliating” behavior, Heather eventually decided to stop filming altogether.
“Heather could see Leah standing up for the cameras, advocating behaviors that she considered demeaning and exploitative, and frankly crossing a line,” the source claimed. “Heather didn’t want any part of Leah, so after leaving that weekend, Heather had no interest in continuing the season at all and stopped filming.”
In the season 13 trailer that closed last week, viewers got a small dose of their feud when Leah referred to Heather as “Karen” and told her to mind her own business, which Heather doesn’t seem to understand.
Before returning to Season 13, Heather was a full-time actress RHONY From seasons five through seven, she has made several cameos since leaving in 2015.
