Leah McSweeney is opening up about Dorinda Medley’s firing from “Real Housewives of New York City.”
“I was definitely shocked, but at the same time I feel like anything goes,” McSweeney, 38, recently said on SiriusXM’s “The Jenny McCarthy Show.” “Nothing should shock you because at the end of the day everyone is just as good as their last season.
“You never know if you’re on the chopping block or not.”
McSweeney acknowledged that Medley had “a difficult season” but still was surprised by the news.
“Obviously, she had a difficult season, so I guess it’s not that shocking,” McSweeney continued, “but at the same time, it is because she’s beloved and she’s great on TV. She’s great TV, but unfortunately for whatever reason, she’s not going to be on this season.”
An insider told Page Six that Medley, 55, was fired from the hit Bravo reality series after she made an off-color quip about former “RHONY” castmate Tinsley Mortimer using a turkey baster to get pregnant. The joke “offended” executive producer Andy Cohen, and ultimately played a role in “sealing her fate.”
The Married to the Mob founder talked to Medley over the phone after the news broke and said she was coping with the firing.
“She seemed great. She seemed OK,” McSweeney recalled. “She was just being very honest about the whole thing like, ‘Look I’m not thrilled about it, but I’m also relieved in some ways.’”
McSweeney added, “She’s going to be fine.”
