Ramona Singer Threatens to Quit RHONY After Leah McSweeney 'Embarrasses' Her
On Thursday's episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, Ramona, 63, demanded a production shutdown and threatened to quit the show after Leah began dancing "like a stripper" during her birthday party.
"Ramona, don't act like I was doing that," Leah, 37, said, after Ramona pulled her off of Luann de Lesseps' lap, where she had been grinding along with Dorinda Medley and Elyse Slaine. "I am not being de classe. I was joking around with them."
"I don't know if Leah knows what's happening right now, and I don't really give a s---," Ramona told the cameras. 'She's embarrassing me and I'm embarrassed for her. There are a hundred women in here. No, no, no!"
"You're dancing like a stripper," Ramona told Leah, after pulling her dress back down to cover her underwear.
"Get the f---ing producers here," Ramona said. "We're done. Shut it down."
"Ramona, calm down," Leah responded. "I'm having fun. You're being f---ing psychotic."
"This girl can do no right," Dorinda said in a confessional. "Ramona is waiting to pounce on Leah for anything. 'How dare you dance!'"
As Ramona wandered off to discuss the situation with producers, Sonja Morgan began dancing on top of a mirrored glass ottoman, breaking it with every step, as Leah cheered her on.
"I'll f---ing quit the show right now," Ramona told a producer. "I'm done. Cameras down. We're done. Break production. We're done!"
In May, Leah, who has had a hot and cold friendship with Ramona this season, criticized her behavior on Instagram.
"But enough about me. Tune in tonight for Ramona. Watch her get embarrassed by MY 'bad' behavior. Yes, you heard it right: the woman who defecates on hotel room floors (and expects others to clean it up), who calls her own friends fat, and who tries to flex on IG during a pandemic is supposedly embarrassed that I got s---faced," Leah said about Ramona. (As audiences will recall, during a past cast trip, the RHONY ladies traveled to Colombia, where many of them got diarrhea after a terrifying boat ride and Singer reportedly left a poop smear on the floor.)
She concluded: "Please! #RHONY #BravoTV #IllSaveTheRestForTheReunion."

On the RHONY season 12 premiere, Leah admitted that she'd been sober for nine years but had been drinking again, six months before filming started.
"Me and alcohol have a very weird relationship," she said, explaining that she struggles with moderation, even when she's trying to hold back. "I am someone who actually enjoys like, completely like, going crazy."
Last month, she revealed on social media that she had been sober again for three months.
