Former New York Housewife Leah McSweeney filed a discrimination complaint with the EEOC against Bravo after filming a season of Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip earlier this year.

In her complaint, Leah details relapsing on Season 12 of “Real Housewives of New York City” to missing her grandmother’s death during a Hamptons trip the following year.

A production source told Vanity Fair that Leah was offered help at the time for “whatever day or time [she] need[ed] to be with [her] grandmother,” and that they meant it as a kind gesture.

After quitting the series over the phone, Leah then agreed to do a week of “RHUGT” filming for $250,000, during which many of her fellow cast members encouraged her to drink. She says she felt she was unable to leave the trip. She claims she felt afaird to leave for her grandmother’s funeral.

“Production spent endless amounts of time accommodating her,” Christie Del Rey-Cone told the outlet of Leah’s “alleged disabilities,” referencing her drug and alcohol addiction struggles.
