We know that Rihanna is an undercover Bravo fan, having proudly showed love for Vanderpump Rules in the past, and even following a couple of the Potomac ladies on IG. But Wednesday night, she tickled fans by revealing she also watches The Real Housewives of New York, posting a pic to the ‘gram to get involved in the drama.
Rihanna jumps to Leah McSweeney’s defense
The post was a dig at Ramona Singer who made fun of Leah McSweeney’s clothing line in Tuesday’s episode. “Let me promote Leah Mob or Mob something,” Singer said in an attempt to discredit Leah’s line.
“You aren’t exactly my demographic, so it’s all good,” Leah shot back.“I already have Rihanna wearing my s—, you think I need you wearing my s—?”
After the episode aired, Rihanna posted a pic in Leah’s defense. In the pic, you can see her posing in one of Leah McSweeney’s Married to the Mob t-shirts, adorned in gold jewelry, a furry black bucket hat and blackout shades. Her caption: “what was said @ramonasinger ? #RHONY.” Shots fired.

Leah showed her gratitude by commenting under Rihanna’s pic, “I love you so much.” Even Bravo’s WWHL IG account got in the comment section: “Like this comment if you think Rihanna should come on #WWHL soon to spill all the Bravo tea!” Rihanna giving Andy Cohen her opinions on everything Bravo? We NEED this to happen!
Rihanna was a Leah McSweeney fan before she joined The Real Housewives
In an interview with Bravo, Leah detailed her first encounter with Rihanna who was very clearly a fan of hers. “One of my most memorable New York City nights had to have been when I went to a Met Gala afterparty. I got introduced to Rihanna and she thought she knew me already — and she gave me a huge hug and was like, ‘I know you!’ and I was like, ‘Actually, you don’t know me. But, you wear my clothing line. You wear my brand, and thank you for that.'”
“She was like, ‘You’re the girl that does that brand?’ and I was like, ‘Yeah!’ She was like, ‘Oh my god, come here!’ [She] gave me a huge hug again and she was just so cool,” the RHONY star recalled. “That’s definitely one of my best New York nights.”
