Leah doesn’t give in
After the Vanity Fair article was published, the former Real Housewives of New York star posted on Instagram that she was “an advocate,” as if the article didn’t make that perfectly clear. A fan commented under the picture and showed his support. They wrote: “I miss you on RHONY. Read Vanity Fair. I wish you $$$ in the lawsuit. You deserve better from the producers of the antagonist @bravotv!”
Leah responded to the fan, writing, “Thank you, you appreciate it. I’m really looking forward to hearing statements :).”
Leah has signaled that this is just the beginning of her legal battle, and a source close to the former reality star confirmed that sentiment. They said they wanted to go “all the way” with their legal complaint.
“She wants to hold them accountable, but she also wants to move on,” the source claimed.
Leah may be ready to move on, but she’s not so desperate that she’ll take a paycheck from Bravo. The source said she will reject any settlement offers so she can take Bravo all the way to court. Supposedly there are “dirty details” that will come to light in court documents when Leah takes them to court.
“She doesn’t want any money from a settlement,” the source claimed. They added: “She wants a trial. she wants [Bravo execs] in front of a jury.”
The source said a lawsuit from Leah is imminent. So expect more on this saga as Leah’s lawyers are working overtime to bring Bravo down.
