Leah McSweeney Defends Judaism Conversion After Criticism From Fans Who Accused Of Following A Trend – Reality Tea

Posted By on May 8, 2021

The Real Housewives of New York returned to our TV screens this week, and a whole lot has changed this time around. Ramona Singer (with a new $80k smile) and Luann de Lesseps turned a new leaf and have become besties. Lu accidentally moved in across from her ex-husband Tom DAgostino.Eboni K. Williams made an amazing debut as the first Black cast member. Tinsley Mortimer and Dorinda Medley are out, at least for now. The only thing that stayed the same is Sonja Morgan still running around her townhouse with a tribe of interns.

Leah McSweeney has also undergone a pretty massive transformation since her breakout season. She upgraded her apartment and her boobs, stopped drinking and is in the process of converting to Judaism. Quite different from her first season filled with drunken pool parties and ravioli throwing.

Leah came right out of the gate in the premiere talking about her transformation. She was born Catholic but felt disconnected from religion during the pandemic. Leah said she felt a calling to convert to Judaism and is committing to following the rules, rituals and prayers that are involved.

According toPage Six,some RHONY fans criticized Leahs conversion, assuming she was following a fad. I hope she finds what shes looking for. But it kinda reminds me of when celebrities got into Kabbalah as a cool trend, someone wrote. Kabbalah, or Jewish mysticism, was a fad followed by several famous celebrities.

Leah hopped on her Instagram Story to set the record straight about her faith. Im not going to respond to every dumb thing people have to say regarding my conversion but this is so ignorant I must, she said. Converting and studying Kabbalah are very different. And to compare my conversion and refer to it as a trend is highly dumb AF and offensive. So thats on that, dont try to mess with someones religious beliefs.

It will be interesting to see the storyline surrounding Leahs conversion play out. She has a history of embracing her sexuality and wearing revealing outfits, which is a no-no for Orthodox Jews. She asked for forgiveness from her family members during the premiere.

But when will she ask Ramona for forgiveness for her constant digs at her age? Or Holla Heather Thomson, so claims Leah or the Queen B assaults her sometime this season? Leah has quite a few amends to make along this journey, so well have to wait and see. Maybe she is getting over some jealousy of the cast bonding with old and new faces instead of her.
