Earlier in last week’s show, Eboni K. Williams invited all of the women over to her house to watch the presidential election results. This encouraged the cast to talk about the upcoming event. Leah McSweeney stated that she was so shocked by folks on both sides of the political spectrum that she was hesitant to vote at all.

Williams and Thomson later stated in private that they disagreed with this. When Williams went to tell McSweeney about their conversation, the Married to the Mob founder, in particular, took it as an issue with Heather. McSweeney and Thomson have had their fair share of on-screen and off-screen drama, so it’s no a surprise that they feuded over this issue.

Thomson stated on Housewives Nightcap that Williams bears some of the guilt for how the issue evolved. She added that the scenario was not communicated well to McSweeney by the show’s newest Housewife. Thomson, a full-time Housewife from Season 5 to Season 7, went so far as to imply that Williams was attempting to create drama by relaying the message to her co-star.

I think she [Williams] stirred the pot, and she caused an issue, and she didn’t speak up,” Thomson said, per Cheat Sheet. She also stated that “We had a conversation that was off-camera. And I said, ‘Boy, Leah really gunning for me. ‘And this whole voting thing,” and she said, ‘Yes, it’s very upsetting to me.” She added, “And we both shared our opinions that it’s a privilege to be able to vote.”

Heather went on to explain how Williams should have handled the situation, saying, “I think she could have said, ‘Wait a minute, girl, you’re going way too crazy. That’s not what happened.” She also voiced that “She just let her storm out of the room. She had an opinion as strong as I had and Eboni sat silent. So that I thought was cowardly.”

Because the previous episode of RHONY ended on a cliffhanger, fans will get to witness how the remainder of McSweeney and Thomson’s heated debate over voting plays out on Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET.
