REAL Housewives of New York star has responded to rumors that she was fired from the Ultimate Girls Trip cast for throwing elephant poop at another cast member.
Although she’s ditched the main franchise, it looks as if the star is on board for another wild season of Ultimate Girls Trip in Thailand that allegedly began filming in July.
Leah McSweeney, 39, shut down a wild rumor involving elephant feces.
A fan page shared: “Leah McSweeney has reportedly been banned from Thailand after her actions on UGT3.”
The rumor continued: “She was forcibly escorted off the set of UGT3 and was sent home early after she threw elephant dung at a cast mate.”
However, Leah replied to the rumors herself and commented: “This would have been iconic. I’m so sad it didn’t happen.”
The former RHONY cast member said: “Sorry to disappoint!”
However, it appears the rumor wasn’t entirely unfounded as there was another time Leah was involved in a wild incident including feces.
Back in 2020, Leah slammed her co-star Ramona Singer for “defecating on hotel room floors” after a wild night of fighting white “s**tfaced.”

Leah admitted she “couldn’t remember” anything after a night of “atrocious behavior” during a weekend getaway to Newport, Rhode Island.
However, just before that episode aired, Leah had taken to Instagram to admit she didn’t want to go on the trip in the first place.
She added that she “didn’t know the women that well” yet and admitted to being in “an already-vulnerable mood.”
“But enough about me. Tune in tonight for Ramona. Watch her get embarrassed by MY ‘bad’ behavior,” the reality star fired off.
Leah continued: “Yes, you heard it right: the woman who defecates on hotel room floors (and expects others to clean it up), who calls her own friends fat.
“And who tries to flex on IG during a pandemic is supposedly embarrassed that I got s**tfaced. Please,” she wrote in a caption of the mirror selfie.
The “defecate” mention is a reference to the 2018 incident when the RHONY cast took a trip to Cartagena, Colombia.
It was revealed that Ramona was the culprit behind the poop smeared across the floor of the resort they were staying at.
Leah also threw shade after Ramona told Sonja Morgan in a previous episode that she needed to “lose 10 pounds.”
Leah’s confrontation with the Bravo star escalated when the newcomer wanted to bring her sister.
Her friend-turned-nemesis refused, admitting to being a “control freak” and feeling “uncomfortable” with a last minute addition she doesn’t know.
‘IT’S NOT HAPPENING’
More recently, the Bravo alum revealed the possibility of making a comeback to the franchise during an appearance on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast.
The conversation began when host, Amanda Hirsch, asked Leah if she would return to her Real Housewives roots.
“The way I go about my life is, like, that it’s not happening. You know what I mean?” Leah replied.
“Like, I’m not banking on it to come back, I’m not banking on going back like I don’t see it that way.
“Like, it doesn’t mean that I don’t think that I’m gonna go back; it’s just, that’s how I live my life, because who the hell knows?”
Leah also revealed her thoughts about whether producers would station her with her old castmates or the new reboot in the works.
“I don’t know, but the thing is, like, I can’t imagine being on the reboot because I’m like, ‘wait, now I’m on with a bunch of people that I don’t know again, I’m not doing that.
“And, like, who else is going to be on it?’ I don’t know… I can’t see that, honestly,” she said.
However, the ex-reality star is not entirely sold on having two separate shows.
She told the host: “You know, I think that like, I guess time will tell if it was a good idea or not.
“I thought we were all going back, all of us, like every single one of us that was on the last season, and then they were going to add, like, three more people. Like, I figured we were all doing it. ”
‘AT A CROSSROADS’
In an interview with Variety in March, Andy Cohen confessed the networks’ plans to change the show after 13 seasons.
After a low-rated season last year, which ended without a reunion, the execs have chosen to switch some things up.
Andy told the outlet: “You know that we’re at a crossroads for RHONY.
“We’ve spent a lot of time figuring out where to go. And the plan that we’ve come up with, I think, is a real gift to the fans.”
The top priority for rebooting RHONY, according to him, is making sure the cast properly reflects the “diverse” city it’s set in.
The Watch What Happens Live host said: “We are searching for a multicultural group of friends who really best reflect the most exciting city in the country.
“We’re looking for a group of women who are real friends and who are of diverse backgrounds, races, and religions.”
Andy added: “What we’re looking for is everything that makes a great Housewife: fun, opinionated, successful, aspirational women who represent a side of New York that we want to see more of.”
A production start date has not yet been decided as they are focused on getting the cast just right first.
