The feeling was mutual.
The “Real Housewives of New York” cast was glad that Heather Thomson decided to stop filming with them after she got into a fight with Leah McSweeney at Ramona Singer’s house, an insider told Page Six on Monday.
“Heather was kind of like a Debbie Downer,” the insider snarked after reports came out that Thomson quit filming Season 13 in disgust over the altercation. “And plus, no one trusted her because of everything she talked about in the press after she left the show.”
Thomson, 50, stirred the pot last September by hurling a plastic surgery insult at cast member Sonja Morgan — saying she liked her “old face” better during a “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” appearance.
She also made damning comments against cast member Luann de Lesseps on an episode of her podcast, “In My Head With Heather Thomson.”
It wasn’t clear what sparked Thomson’s fight with McSweeney, but McSweeney called her a “Karen” in the trailer.
Thomson joined “RHONY” in Season 5 and left at the end of Season 7 in 2015. She made appearances throughout the series after her departure, but has never returned in a “friend” capacity until now.
“Basically, she thought she was going to just jump right in and be part of the group, but she’d just been, like, dragging the show and using the show to get press for herself,” the insider snarked. “There’s a line you don’t cross. It’s just kind of desperate.”
The insider added that “it just wasn’t working” and Thomson wasn’t meshing well with the cast, which includes newcomer Eboni K. Williams, 37, McSweeney, 38, Singer, 64, Morgan, 57, and de Lesseps, 55.
A rep for Thomson didn’t immediately get back to us.
Season 13 of “The Real Housewives of New York” premieres on May 4 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
