Entrepreneur and famous reality television star Leah McSweeney joined the popular show The Real Housewives of New York City (aka RHONY) earlier this year. Season 12 will be her first but let’s hope that not her last because her business endeavors and personal life are both very interesting. As of 2020, Leah McSweeney’s net worth reached amazing 3.2 million dollars and it is likely to keep growing. Check out also the how rich are other RHONY stars like Michael Wainstein, Rob Cristofaro, and Elyse Slaine.
Leah was born August 27, 1982 in New York City, New York. If you are not willing to do the math – this makes her age 37 years. For some time, she attended Fashion Institute of Technology and her interest in fashion lasted till today.
In 2002, McSweeney was injured during an incident with NYPD and she subsequently received a settlement of $75 thousand. Entrepreneurial Leah used this as a starting capital for her fashion company named Married to the Mob.
Already quite accomplished, McSweeney is now adding also being a reality TV personality to the list of her activities. As a part of the main cast of RHONY, she will gain some additional money but more importantly a lot more exposure for her brand of streetwear.
Dating and family
Despite some fans expect Leah to have a husband, she is not married. But she has a boyfriend named Rob Cristofaro who is a fashion designer. Not surprisingly, he is also involved in her Married to the Mob brand. McSweeney has a 12 years old daughter named Kier.
Joining RHONY might prove to be quite stressful as Leah has to reveal a lot from her privacu to the other housewives. And while showing off her two-bedroom apartment in a high rise building, she already encountered some nasty comments about not living luxuriously enough. But she took it with humor and attacked back. After all, she has nothing to be ashamed of. Her apartment is nicely decorated and also very spacious, especially for Manhattan.
