Leah McSweeney has nothing to hide.
Sunday on Instagram Story, the star of “The Real Housewives of New York City” revealed she recently had plastic surgery on her nose after fans noticed blue and black bruises on her face.
“People are [messaging] me like crazy inquiring why I have black eyes, asking me if I got a nose job… I am not trying to hide anything from anybody,” the Married to the Mob founder said. “I got a rhinoplasty and a septoplasty and I could not be happier.”
The 38-year-old, a “Real Housewives” newbie, admitted that she had “been wanting [a nose job] for so freaking long.”
“Now I can also breathe, which is great. And I love my doctor. He’s a great guy. He’s an amazing doctor. His name is Dr. Daniel Maman,” she added.
The fashion designer also assured fans that she never planned to pretend that her slimmed nose was the result of makeup.
“I’m just never going to be one of those ------- that pretends like it’s not work, it’s contour makeup,” she said. “Because that’s ------- weird.”
Last week, TMZ reported that McSweeney was holding out on the upcoming 13th season because of her “minuscule” pay raise.
Sources told the outlet that McSweeney made $3K per episode last year, and that the network made her a similar offer for the new season.
Despite the drama, McSweeney recently confirmed that she is, in fact, returning to the reality TV franchise.
“I’m comin’ back. My work here isn’t done yet!” she told an Instagram fan on Monday.
Last week, TMZ wrote that motivational speaker Bershan Shaw had begun filming for “RHONY,” though it is unclear whether she will be a full-time cast member or a “friend of the show.”
If made a show regular, Shaw would be the first Black Housewife in “RHONY’s” history.
McSweeney has been vocal about demanding diversity in her hit franchise. She told Page Six in August, “I hope that there’s not only diversity of race, but an even deeper diversity of where someone lives or what their interests are.”
She continued, “I hope that there’s just more diversity all across the board because New Yorkers are not a monolith, obviously. I think that it is gonna head in that direction.”
Not only did McSweeney appear in Bravo’s “Race in America: A Movement Not a Moment” special but she has openly supported the Black Lives Matter movement.
