Leah McSweeney, 38, is threatening to walk away from the reality series after being offered an awfully low raise to return next season.
While details of the current contract have not been made public, Leah McSweeney received $3,000 per episode to appear on season 12 of the Real Housewives of New York City.
Leah McSweeney — who was brought on the show by friend and former co-star, Tinsley Mortimer, was season 12’s breakout star and fan favorite.
The reality star has teamed up with talent agency powerhouse, WME, to ensure Bravo pays her what she’s entitled to.
As reported, Ramona Singer tried to get Leah fired from the Bravo reality series over her drunken shenanigans. Leah quickly raised eyebrows after a drunk outburst during a cast trip to Rhode Island became scuttle butt amongst the group. Ramona especially took issue with Leah’s less than lady-like antics — after Leah threw food on the senior cast member and allegedly campaigned for the rookie’s dismissal.
The Real Housewives of New York City will begin film ing season 13 in a couple of weeks.
