Dorinda Medley had a fairly drama-free week on The Real Housewives Of New York, but she does have some thoughts on the other ladies’ behavior. Rooting for Tinsley Mortimer, Dorinda wonders if her living with Sonja Morgan is doing more harm than good. Strangely, Dorinda doesn’t touch on the feud between Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer in her blog though. (What’s up with that?) She does, however, reflect on the emotional moment she shared with her daughter, Hannah, at her late husband, Richard’s grave.
Dorinda shares, “I was overwhelmed and deeply touched by Hannah’s speech. You only saw a small part of it but it was incredible and heartfelt. I always knew that Richard and Hannah had a special relationship but I do not think I understood how strong their bond was and how his passing affected her in so many ways. I feel this was a watershed moment for Hannah – a hard, difficult moment.”

Adding that it was “necessary” for Hannah to “get it all out there,” Dorinda gushes that she “was so proud of her and it made the day not only more special, but gave it a sense of real completion.”
Moving on to Luann de Lesseps’ big day, Dorinda says she gives the bride’s dress – and her own bridesmaid’s dress – two thumbs up! “I love Luann’s dress an MY bridesmaid’s dress. As I said throughout this whole engagement, I never thought I would be a bridesmaid at this age (more of a mother of the bride), but I am excited. In the words of her sister Rene, “I love lace” too. This is a very exciting time and it its all happening so fast. I have never seen Luann happier and it is time for people to either celebrate with her or be silent. The wedding is weeks away and there is no more room for negativity. And I look great in rose pink satin!”
Dorinda does not give the living arrangement going on at Lady Morgan’s house two thumbs up, however! She writes in her blog, “I am confused watching the living situation of Sonja and Tinsley. I get the feeling that Tinsley is being watched and almost tortured. I would feel completely uncomfortable to be a guest of someone that I thought was following my every move and implementing ‘pop up’ rules of acting appropriately as a house guest. Clearly Tinsley is well raised and from a good family. Additionally, she just moved back from Palm Beach from a dreadful situation. She is coming back to NYC a bit hesitant and hurt.”
“I want Sonja’s home to be a place of refuge for her to heal and grow back into NYC and her new life,” continues Dorinda. So, she has some serious advice for the socialite with a broken wing: “Tinsley has been through enough and needs kindness and comforting, not criticism. I hope they work this living situation out or it will clearly end badly. But as I said before, Tinsley, move out!!!”
Yikes. If Tinsley decides to take Carole Radziwill up on her offer of a vacant apartment in her building, Sonja will surely become the night stalker on that block! Maybe Dorinda can help Tinsley craft a deep cover exit strategy, military style?
Dorinda also has some advice for Carole and her couch of many cat-clawings! She jokes, “One comment about Carole’s famous couch. Never get rid of it. I don’t care if it’s shredded to bits – it’s iconic! This couch is from her late husband’s mother and has the old school, not to be found anymore tiger fabric. I believe it’s Salamander, isn’t it? Well I love it and every time I see it I think the stories it could tell!”
