‘RHONY’s Leah McSweeney Says She’s One Year Sober

Real Housewives of New York star Leah McSweeney has announced one year of sobriety.

“365 days booze free. Thank you G-d. People often ask me if I stopped drinking because I saw myself drunk on TV. I stopped drinking a couple days before the show even aired,” she wrote in an Instagram post.

“I’m also often asked if I drank because I knew I was going to be on the show since I had not drank for almost a decade before. And the truth is I started drinking before I knew I was going to be on RHONY. When I found out that I was in fact going to be on the show I thought to myself that it may be a good time to stop drinking again but it was much too hard to stop and I wasn’t ready after all I just started again and I wanted to “enjoy” myself.”


During her first season, Leah became a fan favorite, but many of the ladies on the show were concerned about her drinking. They’ll be pleased to hear about her one year of no alcohol.
