RHONY’s Leah McSweeney ‘feels disrespected’ over ‘minuscule pay raise’ and may not return for season 13

The Real Housewives of New York City star Leah McSweeney might not return for the 13th season, which starts filming in a week or two, after reportedly being offered a ‘minuscule pay raise.’

‘She made $3K per episode last season, which netted her about $60K,’ a source told TMZ on Tuesday.

‘She feels disrespected. Leah is holding out for an offer she feels is more deserving, considering what she brought to the table in her debut season, and she won’t return until she gets it.’

The report came two weeks after the 38-year-old Married to the Mob founder – who just signed with big-time agency WME – teased that she ‘may end up living in Arizona one day.’

McSweeney recently ‘upgraded’ to an apartment in Manhattan’s Financial District downtown, which she shares with her 12-year-old daughter Kier Marie aka ‘Kiki.’

Leah quickly became a fan favorite thanks to antics like skinny-dipping at Ramona Singer’s Hamptons pool where she threw Tiki torches because they were ‘symbols of white supremacy.’ 

The native New Yorker is also the first Housewife to have knuckle tattoos as well as a pair of purple wings inked on her vagina, which was inspired by an acid trip from when she was 17.

‘There are people with so many tattoos I feel like I barely have any. It’s so mainstream. I’m, like, boring at this point because I have tattoos. It’s nothing weird. But alas, they found it very weird,’ McSweeney told ELLE last Thursday.

‘If we wanted to please everyone, we’d play it very safe. I’m not interested in pleasing everyone. I don’t care. I wanna please myself.’

Leah got on the show through gal pal Tinsley Mortimer, who revealed on the June 11th episode (taped in October) that she was moving to Chicago to live with her millionaire fiancé, Scott Von Kluth.

OG Housewife Dorinda Medley subsequently announced her departure on August 25.

At last week’s reunion, executive producer Andy Cohen revealed that Ratched star Sarah Paulson and Last Week Tonight host John Oliver were among the newcomer’s famous fans.

‘Housewives super-fan and actress Sarah Paulson, when I asked her to rate your freshman season on a scale of 1 to 10, she gave you a 25,’ the 52-year-old Emmy winner said.

‘John Oliver said, “I think she’s good. Throwing Tiki torches, naked diving into a pool and basically trashing Ramona’s house. I’m not sure I’ve laughed at anything this year harder than I’ve laughed at that episode.”‘
