Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps have been with RHONY because the premiere. They have each been in all 12 seasons of the present and followers know them completely.

However, Cohen feels the present is working and it’s too quickly to say the present must be revitalized.

“First of all, I think that we’re really celebrating Leah [McSweeney] joining the show, ’cause she’s done an incredible job as a first-season Housewife, just getting in there and she’s really integrated really well,” he advised Entertainment Tonight.

McSweeney has been a breath of recent air on the present and Cohen acknowledges that she’s been in a position to combine herself.

“She didn’t really know any of the women before we started, so it’s great,” Cohen added. “And also, you know, we lost an MVP this season with Bethenny [Frankel] leaving the show. So, listen, it always takes a minute to kind of regroup and find your footing, but they certainly hit the ground running this season and there’s a lot more to come for them. And they are a group that really does see each other throughout the year. This is not a ‘show friendship.’ They’re really in each other’s lives.”

However, it has not at all times been a straightforward highway for McSweeney as she is way youthful than the veterans on the present. Although, she initially clashed with Singer, issues have been good between them since.

“You have to understand, my mother is only a couple years older than her,” McSweeney advised The New York Post. “I was going through some issues with my mom during the show, which everybody will see, and I think that my emotional outburst with Ramona had to do with a lot of my own issues with my mom.”

The Married to the Mob CEO is 37 years previous whereas Singer is 63. Following their preliminary battle, they’ve each been in a position to overcome issues.

“Ramona took me under her wing. She took a liking to me right away, but she also, I felt, was hard on me and holds me to a different expectation,” she continued. “Maybe she sees [in me] herself when she was younger?”
