RHONY’s Leah McSweeney broke down in tears as she admitted to still “carrying a lot of guilt” for her previous struggles with alcohol.
The 37-year-old Bravo star had an emotional chat with her mom, Bunny, about how her tumultuous behavior while drinking in her younger years has stayed with her.

Bunny came over to her daughter’s NYC apartment and was confronted about saying she “doesn’t like” Leah in the past.
Earlier this season, Leah’s sister, Sarah, told her sibling that their mother admitted she “did not like” her daughters.
“One day I might not like you, another day I might not like Sarah,” Bunny confessed.
She then made it clear: “The one thing I don’t like, and I’ll say it to the day I die, is drinking. If you want me to change my thoughts on that… I won’t.”

Leah appeared frustrated and threw her face in her palms as she shook her head.
”I still carry a lot of guilt for everything that happened when I was a teenager.
“Sometimes I feel like I can’t let go of the f**king teenager. Sometimes I feel like that’s who I am,” she said as she broke down in tears.
The Married to the Mob founder’s mom said her that she is not the same person and commended her for how far she has come.

“You got sober. You had a baby. You have a business. You did fine.
“I think when you think I’m judging about the drinking … I wouldn’t want to see you lose what you have worked so hard for,” the mom told her daughter.
Leah assured her mom that it is “not going to happen.”
“Because I don’t see it enhancing your life. I just don’t. I don’t think Kiera would like that either,” she added of Leah’s 12-year-old daughter.
“I have been drinking and it hasn’t affected her or us or anything like that, and if it does, I am going to be honest about it,” the TV personality responded.

The newcomer revealed during the season 12 premiere that she had been sober for nine years but began drinking six months before filming began.
She said in the episode: “Me and alcohol have a very weird relationship.
“I am someone who actually enjoys like, completely like, going crazy.”
Leah said earlier this year that her mother had stopped talking to her when she first started consuming alcohol again.
The fashion designer’s cast mates have also been critical of her drinking – with Ramona Singer, 63, in particular reprimanding her for acting “out of control” at times.

“I hate these tiki torches! F**k you. They suck, they represent bulls**t!” Leah screamed.
Ramona – who left the women the previous night to go to another party – woke up to a disaster left in her kitchen and a very trashed backyard.
