The breakout star of season 12 of the Real Housewives of New York is undoubtedly Leah McSweeney.

Her recent introduction into the franchise has left viewers forgetting all about Bethenny Frankel and Leah exclusively sat down with DailyMailTV from quarantine in her New York City apartment to talk about that headline making Hamptons party. 

Leah certainly turned some heads in episode four when she showed off her wild side by stripping down to go skinny dipping with her co-stars.

Leah explained that after the episode aired, fans have been sending her messages on social media to thank her for being so frank and honest about her ‘complicated relationship with alcohol.’

After taking a break from drinking for nine years, the 37-year-old decided to enjoy a few cocktails while filming RHONY.

‘I think because [viewers] saw me drunk being so funny and having so much fun, that it wasn’t  … no one’s worried,’ Leah said, writing the night off as some lighthearted fun.

For the most part, the fashion designer said that fan reaction has been nice and positive, appreciating that the road to sobriety is not always a straight line.

Big change: Following nearly a decade of sobriety, Leah certainly turned some heads in episode four when she partook in drinking and stripped down to go skinny dipping with her co-stars

‘Of course, I got some comments like “your daughter must be ashamed of how you acted,”‘ she admitted. But, she said that type of negativity doesn’t ‘even bother me at all.’

During this season, her first on the long-running reality show, Leah revealed that she will address her relationship with drinking more and more.  

‘You’ll see it play out throughout the season,’ she said. ‘You know, at some point we’ll divulge more about where I’m at right now with it.’

Adding: ‘I am going to open up about it at some point more than I have.’

Currently, the reality star is back in the Big Apple after spending some time in lockdown with her family. 

‘I just decided to come back to the city. I missed it. And quite frankly, I just needed to come back to my own space,’ she said.

The adjustment has been a bit of a challenge and she admitted that, right now, she would love the distraction of dating to liven things up a bit.  

‘Of course I can’t date right now during quarantine but it’d be nice to be doing some flirting,’ Leah laughed. ‘I don’t know. Maybe I need to get on a dating app.’ 

'You'll see it play out throughout the season,' she said of her drinking. 'You know, at some point we'll divulge more about where I'm at right now with it. I am going to open up about it at some point more than I have.'
