Leah McSweeney calls out ‘cruel’ Andy Cohen amid their lawsuit for trolling Kate Middleton prior to cancer reveal: ‘Apologize to her’

Leah McSweeney slammed Andy Cohen — with whom she is embroiled in a scathing lawsuit — for his remarks about Kate Middleton prior to her cancer diagnosis being revealed.

“Andy Cohen gets a kick out of being cruel to women and Kate Middleton is no exception,” the “Real Housewives of New York City” alum, 41, began in a post via her Instagram Story Friday.

“I hope that after she was forced to publicly talk about her cancer diagnosis he will muster up the decency to apologize to her. People with power need to lead by example.”

Cohen has yet to address McSweeney’s comments or the backlash he has received from others, demanding that he retract his remarks about Middleton.

The Bravo head honcho was one of many people who took to social media to fuel conspiracy theories about the Princess of Wales’ whereabouts after she had scarcely been seen in public in recent weeks.

Earlier this month, he remarked via X on a photo circulating of Middleton, 42, visiting at a local farm stand with Prince William, “That ain’t Kate….”

Cohen then perpetuated an old rumor that the Prince of Wales cheated on his wife with Lady Rose Hanbury as further speculation about why Middleton had been missing in action.

“Don’t forget he broke it off with [Middleton] after they dated for years and sowed his wild oats for a time and then went back to her,” the “Watch What Happens Live” host, 55, said on his podcast Thursday.

He then added that William, 41, is “his father’s [son],” referencing when King Charles III notoriously cheated on the Prince of Wales’ mom, Princess Diana, with Queen Camilla.

A day later after Cohen made his statements, Middleton shared in a heartfelt video that she had been secretly battling cancer, and that is why she had been seeking some privacy.

“William and I have been doing everything we can to process and manage this privately for the sake of our young family,” she said in the clip Friday.

“As you can imagine, this has taken time. It has taken me time to recover from major surgery in order to start my treatment. But, most importantly, it has taken us time to explain everything to George, Charlotte and Louis in a way that is appropriate for them, and to reassure them that I am going to be OK.”

After her revelation, people who had made light of Middleton’s situation were heavily criticized, including Blake Lively, who was forced to apologize for a “silly post” she made poking fun at the princess’ Photoshopping skills after she released an edited photo of herself on Mother’s Day in the UK.

It comes as no surprise, though, that McSweeney singled out Cohen as she is currently seeking legal retribution from her ex-boss, alleging he and Bravo used her alcohol addiction for their financial gain.

The former reality star also accused the Sirius XM host of snorting cocaine with “Housewives” in the suit.

Cohen, for his part, called the lawsuit a total “shakedown,” and said via his lawyers McSweeney’s claims are “categorically false.”
