Real Housewives of New York City alum Leah McSweeney40, teased what’s coming on the third season of Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip in an EXCLUSIVE interview with Hollywood Lifecalling it more “intense” and “wild” than the first two seasons of the Peacock show.
“Everyone is quite dramatic. It’s the Housewives,” said Leah on the latest episode of the Pay attention to Puh-Lease! podcast, while her partnership with Abreva. “It was very intense. These are eight personalities, women I didn’t know. Of course I was there without anyone from New York. Out of the last two seasons, it’s definitely the wildest.”
Leah told us that “really intense conversations” took place between the eight women in Thailand, and that there was some spillover from the drama between cousins Heather Gay and Whitney Rose of Salt Lake City and friends who became enemies Gizelle Bryant and Candiace Dillard Bassett of Potomac. On the other hand, BFFs Alexia Nepola and Marysol Patton of Miami got along great, according to Lea.
“So it was interesting how their dynamic from their shows and their drama and issues with each other definitely came into this season of Ultimate Girls Trip,” Leah explained.
Leah ended up being the only one RHONY star in Thailand Tinsley Mortimer dropped out and was replaced by Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Porsha Williams, rounding out the cast of eight. “She had last-minute scheduling conflicts,” Leah said of her friend Tinsley. “It was a big bummer. It was hugely disappointing.”
The Married to the Mob founder also explained how season 3 of RHUGT was “completely different” than her two seasons on RHONY. “In New York I got to know the women and this is a whole new cast. I mean it’s a whole new group of people,” she said. “It’s a whole new set of dynamics. And yes, so it was nothing the same. It was completely different.”
Oh, and remember those rumors that Leah was banned from Thailand for allegedly throwing elephant cat during filming? It (unfortunately) never happened.
“I’m definitely not banned from Thailand. I don’t want to disappoint people. Like I regret it just didn’t happen,” Leah told HL. “It would have been fucking epic. I’m sober now, so maybe it would have happened if I’d been drinking, but it just didn’t. I feel like I had When you did, people were like, ‘She walked off the set.’ I’m like, ‘I probably would have gotten a 10-year contract.’ Like, if I did.”
