Throughout the current season of RHONY, McSweeney has been open about her sobriety and past issues with drinking. During the season premiere episode, the reality star admitted that she’d been sober for nine years but had begun drinking again six months before filming started.
“Me and alcohol have a very weird relationship,” she said, explaining that she struggles with moderation, even when she’s trying to hold back. “I am someone who actually enjoys like, completely like, going crazy.”
As McSweeney continued to drink throughout the season — including when she skinny-dipped in Ramona Singer’s Hampton pool — she decided to tell her mother about her change in relationship with alcohol.
