Eboni K. Williams weighs in on Leah McSweeney, Heather Thomson fight
UPI News Service, 06/09/2021
Eboni K. Williams is weighing in on Leah McSweeney and Heather Thomson's fight on Real Housewives of New York.
The 37-year-old television personality said on Tuesday's episode of Watch What Happens Live that she regrets her role in McSweeney and Thomson's altercation.
Tuesday's episode of RHONY showed McSweeney and Thomson's tension come to a head after Williams told McSweeney that Thomson was bothered by McSweeney not knowing if she wanted to vote in the 2020 presidential election. McSweeney and Thomson had a blowout fight where McSweeney called Thomson a Karen.
On WWHL, Williams told host Andy Cohen that there is more drama to come between McSweeney and Thomson.
"I'll say that what we saw at the end of the episode, Andy, as you know, was just the beginning of the Leah-Heather throw down," she said. "I do regret what I said, only because I had no idea that LeLe, as I affectionately call her, was gonna pop off the way that she did."
Williams said she had her own feelings about McSweeney voting and could have expressed them without bringing up Thomson in the conversation.
"The reality is, I did have my own feeling and perspective about Leah's decision, or at least contemplation rather, whether or not she was going to vote," Williams said.
"And we're so close, and what I love about Leah and I's relationship is we love each other enough to create space for us to be grown [expletive] women and adults and make our own decisions," she added. "So I probably could have expressed that without attaching the Heather component, which just set it off."

On WWHL, Williams also answered shady questions about her RHONY co-stars. Williams said McSweeney might have been unfairly unwelcoming to Thomson.
"Leah was doing a lot. I think eventually there was a good reason, but she was a little... she was all hot off the tape," she said.
RHONY is in the midst of its 13th season on Bravo. The series also stars Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer.
