If there’s one thing Leah McSweeney knows for sure, it’s that life never quite gives you what you expect. Her road to success as an entrepreneur and breakout star on “The Real Housewives of New York City” has been paved with unexpected chances, soul-crushing challenges, and, for too long, chaos.
From her years spent partying in the drug-fueled New York City club scene to getting sober, having a baby, and investing the settlement money from an NYPD assault to launch her streetwear business, Married to the Mob, McSweeney has learned to find her way by pushing back against the conventions of society, the status quo of the fashion industry, and the limitations of her own self-worth to create a wild, unconventional, and beautiful life.
In Chaos Theory: Finding Meaning in The Madness One Bad Decision at a Time, McSweeney shares an entertaining, unapologetic, moving, and deeply honest chronicle of mistakes and hardships, triumphs and failures, as well as her unique philosophy for embracing the way life’s unexpected turns can lead to paths never imagined.
McSweeney will be in conversation with Dr. Wendy Osefo, a political commentator, assistant professor at Johns Hopkins School of Education, and cast member on “The Real Housewives of Potomac.”
