There was a glimmer of hope that Ramona Singer and the newest member of the group, Leah McSweeney, had finally squashed their beef in the latest episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, but the exchange at the end of the episode made it seem like this thing between them is far from over. It makes one wonder what exactly is at the root of the problem, and luckily for us, Luann de Lesseps may have an answer.
Luann de Lesseps joined Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, and had plenty to say in regards to the 200th episode of The Real Housewives of New York City. When Andy asked if Ramona Singer's dislike of Leah McSweeney was tied to the fact Leah is younger, Luann weighed in with her take on the situation.
I don't really think it has to do with her being younger, I think it has to be with her being 'classy.' I think Ramona thinks she's too kind of downtown in her ways of behaving and I don't think Ramona's used to that. Ramona kind of hops on that high horse of this is how you should behave on the upper east side.
Straight from the mouth of Luann de Lesseps, she thinks age is just a number for Ramona Singer. What really matters is how Leah McSweeney carries herself, and according to Luann, Ramona thinks she doesn't act classy enough to hang with the upper east side. Ramona did have that meltdown about Leah's dancing at the party.
Considering her previous thoughts, it may not be surprising to hear that Luann de Lesseps also thinks that there is some unfair treatment happening with Leah McSweeney. Luann seems to think along the same lines as Leah: that Ramona's rules apply to her, but not others in The Real Housewives of New York group.
I think Ramona does hold Leah to a different standard. She's tough on Leah. When you see how Sonja goes around. Ramona judges Leah so much more harshly than she would ever judge Sonja.
Ramona Singer and Leah McSweeney seemed to reach some form of understanding in the Mexican restaurant, and for a brief moment, it seemed they were going to be okay. Then Leah had the "audacity" to say the word vagina, and Ramona went right back into the talk about how she is uncomfortable talking about stuff like that. It was disappointing, but I did appreciate learning the phrase "Turtle time bitch" from Leah because of it.
