Leah McSweeney was asked about her past drama with Heather Thomson on The Real Housewives of New York City during an appearance on Andy Cohen's late-night talk show, Watch What Happens Live, last week.

During a fan Q&A segment of the show, Cohen read a question from someone who wanted to know if McSweeney saw the hypocrisy in calling Thomson "a b-tch a million times" before getting upset when Thomson called her one in return.

In response, McSweeney admitted that while she "guessed so," the drama between them was a bit of a misunderstanding.

According to McSweeney, she fired back at Thomson for her "b-tch" diss in the way she did because she felt that she said more than she actually did.

"I thought she said ‘dumb b-tch’ and then when I watched it I didn’t hear the ‘dumb’ and I was like, ‘Whoops,’” McSweeney admitted.

Continuing on about their feud, which is rumored to have resulted in Thomson quitting The Real Housewives of New York City midway through production, McSweeney confessed to being a "hard" on her now-ex-cast mate.

"Look, I don’t think we were ever going to be besties. I think I was definitely being hard on her," McSweeney explained.

Recalling the drama that went down between them during their cast trip to the Hamptons, McSweeney said she wasn't being true to herself amid their spat.

"I think I was watching it, I was like, ‘Wow, I am really not being myself.' I obviously was like, taking things out on her," McSweeney shared, giving a nod to her grandmother's imminent death.

"But at the same time, what she did afterwards in saying I should have left to see my grandmother when she knows damn well I didn’t get to say bye to my grandmother was just a low that I would never go to," McSweeney continued.

As McSweeney explained to host Cohen, Thomson crossed a major line when she brought up her late grandmother's passing in a negative and guilt-inducing way.

"And also," McSweeney added, "I apologized to her. I did feel bad."

While McSweeney is no fan of Thomson, she told Cohen that she reached out to her in an effort to make nice before the two of them were set to come face-to-face at another cast event.

"I did DM her to talk about it because I found out she wan’t going to be joining us for the election night party and I was like, ‘Maybe I need to say sorry again and talk to her," she said.
