Leah McSweeney: OnlyFans Outpaces ‘RHONY’ Earnings


In a revelation that highlights the evolving landscape of entertainment and income streams, Leah McSweeney, former cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, recently shared on Sofia Franklyn’s “Sofia with an F” podcast that she earned more money on OnlyFans than she did for an entire season on the Bravo series.

Expressing her astonishment at the financial success she found on the subscription-based platform, Leah McSweeney, 41, posed the question, “Why didn’t I do OnlyFans sooner?” She lauded the platform for its lack of censorship, absence of intrusive advertisements, and freedom from negative algorithms, which she believes contribute to a more supportive environment for content creators.

Describing her experience on OnlyFans as empowering, McSweeney emphasized the creative freedom and financial stability it afforded her. Despite acknowledging the occasional explicit content shared on the platform, she expressed genuine enjoyment and appreciation for its versatility.

McSweeney’s remarks on her OnlyFans earnings come amidst her ongoing legal battle with Andy Cohen and Bravo. In her lawsuit, she accuses the producers of jeopardizing her sobriety and alleges drug use by Cohen and his employees. When asked about the role of the show in her relapse, McSweeney refrained from assigning blame but advocated for improved workplace protections and rights for reality TV personalities.

The Married to the Mob founder’s candid revelations shed light on the multifaceted nature of success in the entertainment industry and the shifting dynamics of income generation for reality TV stars. As platforms like OnlyFans continue to gain prominence, McSweeney’s experience serves as a testament to the potential for financial empowerment and creative expression outside traditional media avenues.
