August 27 is Leah McSweeney’s birthday.
I’m glad that Leah McSweeney has joined the cast of the “Real Housewives of New York.” If any show in the franchise needed some new blood, it was that one.
Don’t get me wrong! I still enjoy watching the Countess, but virtually everyone else on the current season of “RHONY” has reached the end of their run as far as I’m concerned. All they do is yell at each other. If it wasn’t for Leah, this current season would rival the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” in its hostility.
Anyway, it’s no surprise that Leah is a Virgo. The last time a new cast member really shook up this show was when Aviva Drescher graced the world with her presence. The show was nuts back then!
I hope that Leah sticks around. She has a Sagittarius moon and Venus in Leo, which means that there will still be a little of Dorinda and Tinsley represented now that they’ve handed in their apples. Her mutable astrological makeup has created a rather unpredictable character, and that’s exactly what the show needs.
I do find it interesting that the Sagittarius “Housewives” are dropping like flies. Over the past few days, NeNe has been rumored to be leaving the show, Dorinda has announced her departure and Garcelle has signed a contract with a different show. In the meantime, we’ve gained another Gemini cast member on the “Real Housewives of Potomac” in Wendy Osefo, and we’ve lost one of the few Aquarius cast members on “Beverly Hills” — assuming Denise Richards is not coming back.
I also find it interesting that another new entry into the franchise is on deck while production has basically halted on most of the Bravo productions due to COVID-19. Who ever thought that the “Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” would make it onto our TV screens? I wonder what they’re going to hold in their hands during the opening credits? Beehives? Salt? Old Donny and Marie 8-tracks?
I’m eager to see a few new faces, and hopefully it won’t be too difficult to learn their zodiac signs. In the meantime, I’m just going to prepare myself for the “Beverly Hills” reunion while I enjoy the ridiculousness of “Potomac.” Those women are working overtime to entertain me, and I couldn’t be more thankful for their efforts.
