Dorinda Medley is the newbie on Real Housewives Of New York, despite a longtime friendship with Ramona Singer, and she admits that joining the show was scary as hell because of one Bethenny Frankel, who channels her ravenous starvation into eating socialites alive with her piranha-jaw. After working out some kinks, Dorinda happily admits she’s glad she took to the plunge into the reality TV ocean – and believes she brought a peace-making energy to the motley crew of embattled socialites and social climbers!
I “acted as a bit of a mediator” Dorinda describes of her strategy with her co-stars. “I didn’t think I’d play that role, but I tried to bring the girls together.”
A widow and empty-nester whose daughter left for college recently, Dorinda says she was motivated to join RHONY on a whim. “I thought, ‘I’m turning 50, and I’ve never done anything like this.’ So I decided to give it a go.” Bolstered by a friendship with Ramona and being acquaintances with LuAnn de Lesseps, she went into it with trepidation and admits it wasn’t smooth sailing.
While some reality TV stars make a huge production out of going to church on Easter <cough-Kris-cough-Kardashian-cough> for the paparazzi, others enjoy quiet, quality time with family. Of course, they ARE still reality stars, so they post pictures. Here is a roundup of our favorite pictures from the holiday weekend.
The girls are still in Manila at the uber 5-star peace and progress drama rehab. It’s minutes before they’re supposed to check out but Kenya is still soaking up that last 5 minutes of attention whoring (see what I did there?! LOL) by wandering around the pool in a bikini showing her butt crack to maximum Maxim. What was it Krayonce was screaming about coochie and butt crack? Anyway — that’s all in the past – she wants us to conveniently forget all of her past indiscretions. Hey I will, I want to, let’s move ON! However, if Kenya wants to show Porsha Williams that while she is the one dressed like a THOT on instagram, Kenya was a THOT of the oldschool on such magazines as STUFF and FHM, I’ll go along.
Kenya twirls back to her suite, escorting Claudia Jordan and Cynthia Bailey, the smoke in her tilt-a-twirl’s line of fire. There they discuss the marvel of Phaedra finally talking to Kenya! Claudia secret-smiles over how amazing she is for bringing peace to the group, then our simpering sycophant tells Kenya how much she deserves the apology for all she has put-up with. OK, seriously?
After the Easter egg hunt was over at the Kardashian-Jenner house, the family dialed up the paparazzi, grabbed their not-so-best white outfits and headed to church in Woodland Hills for an Easter service photo op. Kourtney Kardashian was the only one who didn’t get the all-white wardrobe memo.
There are so many things wrong with these photos but I’ll leave that to you guys. All I’m gonna say is that Kendall Jenner looks like she’s heading to the club (and then posted an after-church-service, nearly nude photo of herself on Instagram). And kudos to family genius Kanye West for going “holey” for the service. Also, is this the church that Kris “co-founded?”
Kenya’s ire towards Brandi started after Andy asked Brandi what it was like working with Krayonce on CA. Brandi, of course, didn’t try to make nice. Instead she called Kenya “crazy” and “evil” and Kenya unleashed her tirade on twitter! “LOL this woman is still talking about me #obsessedmuch #RHOBH” Kenya wrote.
Happy Easter to all of our readers! We hope you all have a wonderful day with your families and friends.
We have some special Reality Tea news! The Easter bunny delivered a very special gift to our recapper Bonnie K.! She gave birth to a beautiful baby boy on Friday morning! Congrats to Bonnie and her family!
