Leah McSweeney has been open up about her issues with drinking on the current season of The Real Housewives of New York City
Leah McSweeney is celebrating 90 days sober.
Throughout the current season of RHONY, McSweeney has been open about her sobriety and past issues with drinking. During the season premiere episode, the reality star admitted that she'd been sober for nine years but had begun 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."
As McSweeney continued to drink throughout the season — including when she skinny-dipped in Ramona Singer's Hampton pool — she decided to tell her mother about her change in relationship with alcohol.

McSweeney said she understood where her mother was coming from, admitting that she had some pretty wild days with alcohol when she was younger. "When you've had a nine-year period of not drinking and then decide to start doing it, obviously, rightly so, my mom is going to be worried," McSweeney said.
"For my mom, when she heard I'm drinking again, it's just like a trigger to her," she said. "I definitely think that my mom still views me as that wild teenager. It's very hard for her to accept me as a 37-year-old woman who's got her s--- together."
However, McSweeney told her costars she felt like she was a long way from her dangerous days. "I would never go to that deep, dark place again," she said.
