The Real Housewives of New York are back for a whole new season and the Big Apple ladies kicked things off in style.

Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon, 24, was spotted at a party with rapper Azealia Banks, 29, and housewife Leah McSweeney, 38, at the premiere party on Tuesday night.

McSweeney, who recently celebrated a year sober, shared photos and videos of the raucous East Village soiree on her Instagram account.

Lourdes, always the rebel, turned the bird towards the camera while snapping a selfie with Azealia Banks.

Later, Azealia posed for photos with the woman of the hour herself, Leah McSweeney, who started her second season with the Bravo show.

“You’ve been judging since 2008,” Banks wrote of their selfie in her Insta Story.

Azealia glowed with dewy skin and glittering gunmetal smoky eyes to match her gray and white gingham dress.

Leah, meanwhile, looked glam with her hair in a high ponytail and an animal print top.

According to Page six, the premiere party was held in St. Dymphnas in the East Village and followed a strict COVID-19 capacity protocol with no more than 100 guests. Sources told the outlet that people were upset by the rules, however, and argued with bouncers to be let in.

McSweeney was the newbie to the Real Housewives of New York last season and she sat down exclusively with DailyMailTV’s senior correspondent Alicia Quarles and shared how difficult it was to stay on the wagon during COVID-19.

She also revealed that ‘hell may have been frozen’ in season 13 of RHONY since she and Ramona Singer are finally in a ‘good place’.

‘It was difficult. I’m not going to lie, ”she explained. ‘Of course I had a point of reference, because I haven’t been drinking for nine years. So it certainly wasn’t nearly as difficult as the first time I quit drinking. But it was still tough because who really wants to be there when you’re in a lockdown during a pandemic? ‘

In the end, Leah learned that filming was more fun when she wasn’t feeling groggy or hungover, but she admits she was missing some of her more wild moments this year – despite donning crystal patties at a party in one episode.

As a veteran this year, Leah knew what to expect when it came to her close-knit co-stars, particularly Luann, Sonja and Ramona.

Leah revealed to DailyMailTV that after a strained relationship with a certain housewife notorious for feather swapping, things are finally going smoothly.

‘Me and Ramona are in a good place right now. I like that, ”she said with a laugh. “Yes, and hell may be frozen, I don’t know.”

‘I think there were so many conflicts around us in the world. I’m like, “oh my god, it can’t be me – gotta make this work”. I need to have some sort of interface, ”Leah continued, adding,“ And we made it happen. ‘

McSweeney also has a built-in ally this year, new housewife Eboni K. Williams, who was her good friend before the show.

‘Me and Ramona are in a good place right now. I like that, ”she said with a laugh. “Yes, and hell may be frozen, I don’t know.”

Leah was a strong alpha woman herself and said Eboni didn’t need much guidance to find her balance, but she was there to offer some encouragement.

“I think when there were times they were like,” Ugh, oh my god girl. This is a lot “I’m like,” Yeah, but it’ll be worth it, “Leah said. And I … I told her to be herself. That was the main thing. Stay yourself.’
