New cast member Leah McSweeney had everyone in a tizzy over her 'tramp stamp' tattoo on Thursday's episode of The Real Housewives Of New York City.

Located on her lower back, it read, 'Leah,' and was the source of much amusement among her wealthy castmates, many of whom said their friends didn't have tattoos.

Sonja Morgan, 56, observed that a tramp stamp could be useful, saying, 'That's so when [people] have sex with you, they remember who you are,' a joke Leah, 37, had heard often.

Within days, Sonja had told Ramona Singer, 63, and Dorinda Medley, 55, about the tattoo, both of whom opined that they didn't usually associate with tattooed people.

'I'm not sure what a 'tramp stamp' is, but it doesn't sound very nice,' Ramona noted privately, adding, 'I don't talk to people with tattoos.'

Sonja tried to make Leah feel better by saying that at least Ramona knew her name, after which Dorinda snarked, 'And if she forgets it, you just have to turn around and bend over.'

For Leah, who was new to the ways of the group, that was a little too much.
