As fans on social media continue to speak out about the excessive drinking of the likes of Sonja Morgan, Luann de Lesseps, and Leah McSweeney, Andy admitted that the ladies are “off the rails” while also confirming that their relationships with alcohol will soon be discussed on the show.
“There’s a lot of booze this season and the good news is that they, they… It becomes a big topic of discussion as the season goes on because they’re all kind of in various stages of being off the rails,” Andy shared, according to a clip shared by KIIS 1065. “And so they actually start talking a lot about their relationship with alcohol and alcohol in the group.”
Following a number of drinking storylines on the show, Leah, the newest addition to the series, confirmed on her Instagram page that she had returned to a life of sobriety as she showcased a photo of her 90-day Alcoholics Anonymous chip.
Over the past couple of episodes of RHONY, viewers have taken to their social media pages with concerns for the women of the show and flooded the ladies with backlash and claims of taking their alcohol consumption too far.
I’m not an expert but it really doesn’t seem like Leah knows what moderate drinking is #RHONY

Why doesn’t anyone have an issue with Luann drinking AGAIN?? Isn’t this woman a recovering alcoholic?! And here she is at Dorinda’s getting drunk. At this point, they are all alcoholics. #RHONY

“The Real Housewives of New York City has just recorded its lowest rated episode since season 7! Thursday’s RHONY episode was only viewed by 0.88 million people, down from 1.18 million from the previous episode,” the Real Housewives Franchise on Instagram revealed.
Also during his interview on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, Andy revealed what the Real Housewives are like when the cameras aren’t rolling.
“People always ask what the Housewives are really like and I always say, ‘If you run into them in the wild, you will know that they are exactly as they are on the show,'” Andy shared. “The funny thing is, the New York women, who might be the most off the rails, I’m running into them. They’re all in The Hamptons.”
“I’ve got Countess Luann who’s driving by on a boat outside of my house,” he added.
The Real Housewives of New York City season 12 airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
