Even the most seasoned housewife on the 'Real Housewives' franchise cracks under the pressure of the show's reunions, but the same can't be said about Leah McSweeney. Despite the Season 12 reunion of 'Real Housewives of New York City' being her first reunion show, Leah held herself rather well and managed to stand up with her signature effortless style to the other ladies who tried bullying her.

After taking on OG housewife Ramona Singer during the first part of the reunion, the 'Married to the Mob' founder seems to have shifted her focus to LuAnn de Lesseps. LuAnn and Leah have always shared a cordial relationship, so it came as a huge surprise when we saw the two ladies disagree and argue in the preview clip for the upcoming episode. 

In the clip, we see LuAnn express her disappointment with Dorinda's response to one of the questions posed by host Andy Cohen. When Andy asked Dorinda if she felt bad about how she spoke to LuAnn in Mexico, Dorinda reportedly said no. This upsets LuAnn, who felt that her fellow housewife should have being apologetic for trying to humiliate her by bringing up her past as an alcoholic who got arrested.

While LuAnn was pointing out how Dorinda should have felt bad and apologized to her, Leah swoops in to defend Dorinda. Leah defends Dorinda by pointing out how she never goes for "below the belt" attacks on her fellow housewives. LuAnn seemed to disagree with Leah's assessment of Dorinda's behavior as her eyes widened on hearing Leah's remarks. We can't wait to see how this plays out between the housewives. 

The upcoming episode will also feature Ramona and Dorinda getting into a fight. We see Ramona bringing out a bunch of printouts with Dorinda's texts on them and reading them out loud. Dorinda gets upset seeing them. Finally, Ramona throws them on the floor in anger. We will just have to watch the episode to see if the housewives manage to resolve their differences.

'Real Housewives of New York City' Season 12 airs every Thursday at 9/8c on Bravo.
