Bethenny Frankel

Dorinda Medley

Dorinda Medley had plenty to vent about after this week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York. Dorinda addressed Bethenny Frankel‘s “mistruths” and weighed in on Luann de Lesseps‘ post-rehab situation. She also seemed to defend Ramona Singer‘s behavior a bit.

Dorinda started off addressing “mistruths”, “As with the famous nutcracker—I never wanted balloons or marching bands or a hand-engraved thank you. I did something nice for a friend and there was so little gratitude that not only me but Luann, Ramona, and Carole also were shocked by Bethenny’s bizarre behavior that went on far longer than anyone would ever expect or want to witness. While some of you may say she looked grateful while the rest of us looked like petty, mean girls, I was there and strongly disagree. She turned it into a ridiculous banter about wanting a parade. [Eye roll] Stupid, really. I assure you I have better things to do then wait for a thank you—not that Bethenny would know cause she never asks what’s going on in my life.”

Sonja Morgan’s Advice For Ramona Singer: “Hoes Before Bros”

Thankfully Ramona Singer has become a masterful apologizer throughout her time as a Real Housewives of New York cast member. No one else could away with all of the stunts that she pulls. She tried to attend a party on Luann de Lesseps’ (cheating) ex-husband Tom D’Agostino’s boat on New Year’s Eve.

New Year’s Eve is the one-year anniversary of their short-lived marriage and this was while Luann was alone in rehab. Talk about insensitive.

Tinsley Mortimer Discusses Her Breakup With Scott Kluth & Her Confrontation With Tom D’Agostino

Yesterday the news broke about Tinsley Mortimer’s  (most recent)breakup with Scott Kluth. So it was perfectly awkward timing for her to be Andy Cohen’s guest on last night’s Watch What Happens Live episode. This is also on the heels of last week’s episode where she tried on wedding dresses (even though she wasn’t engaged) and FaceTimed her frozen eggs down in Florida after she forgot to pay the bill. Clearly there’s a lot to unpack with this (former?) relationship.

Tinsley discussed her most recent breakup with Scott, her confrontation with Luann de Lesseps’ ex-husband Tom D’Agostino in Palm Beach, Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel’s beef, and other Real Housewives of New York drama in the Bravo Clubhouse.

Real Housewives Of New York Recap: Every Mayflower Has Its Thorn

Luann de Lesseps is fresh out of rehab, so of course, it’s time to whisk her away for a wine-fueled weekend and cruel reminders of her failed marriage. Naturally! The Real Housewives of New York head to the Mayflower Spa in CT, where Luann learns that Ramona Singer tried to score an invite to Tom D’Agostino’s New Year’s Eve party – yup, the very one Luann had heard about in dreaded NOT-WEST-PALM-BEACH! Dorinda Medley continues to peck at Sonja Morgan about her penchant for hanging on to the past, while Bethenny Frankel comes to Sonja’s rescue. Even weakened allies are still allies, I guess?

Before they leave, Luann greets Dorinda at her new apartment – you know, the one she barely moved into before getting cuffed and booked? The PENTHOUSE, dahling! Now, she’s baking cookies and brewing coffee in an effort to keep the rehab/yoga/therapy pink cloud going. Dorinda is glad Lu’s doing so well and hopes a trip to the spa will help her stay in a safe cocoon. Um, except that cocoon contains a Ramona, so…maybe not so safe. Luann’s already heard that Ramona was trying to score an invitation to Tom’s NYE party, which is mind-blowing considering what went down last year.

Real Housewives Of New York Recap: You Broke The Penal Code

This season of Real Housewives of New York is just too good. We were blessed with that arrest footage of Luann de Lesseps in Palm Beach. Luann went straight from her arrest to rehab and now she’s back with the cast in tonight’s episode. If anyone deserves to be holding an apple in the center of the opening credits, it’s Luann. Sorry, Bethenny Frankel. As compelling as that feud with Carole Radziwill is, Bethenny’s other scenes are essentially a Skinnygirl infomercial.

For the past two seasons it has been all “about Tom” and now Luann’s ex-husband Tom D’Agostino is a main topic of conversation yet again during tonight’s episode. I cannot be the only one who misses the constant Tom chatter from seasons past. Or maybe, I am. I don’t care. Any episode that revolves around Luann and Tom in any capacity is something I’m looking forward to.

Ramona Singer with Wine

In the wake of Luann de Lessepstrip to rehab, former (and present) stars of Real Housewives Of New York and other franchises are speaking out about the producers’ tactics to allegedly push alcohol on the women in an effort to solicit big drama. This accusation is nothing new, but the details are quite illuminating and provide an interesting testimony for the behind-the-scenes workings of the show.

Spurned Housewives Aviva Drescher and Kelly Bensimon tell their stories, with tidbits added from Heather Thomson (who quit the show), Gretchen Rossi, and others about their experiences.

Aviva, known for the infamous prosthetic leg toss on the finale of season 6, was part of the RHONY cast reboot after season 4 and appeared on the show for two seasons (“writer girl“). Kelly, obviously, is notorious for her feuds with Bethenny Frankel culminating in Scary Island. Both women, along with some current housewives who chose to remain anonymous, claim there is a vested interest to push booze on the cast – even if it’s clearly against their best interest.

Carole Radziwill: “There Is Bethenny’s Version Of Events, And Then There Is Reality”

I have to confess that as much as I’d love for Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel to make amends, I’m living for Carole’s snarky blogs this season! Once again The Real Housewives of New York star isn’t holding back as she shares her thoughts on this week’s episode!

Carole starts off, “Bethenny came in hot, straight from telling her driver Kevin a bunch of nonsense. Imagine a friend texting ‘I miss you’ and sending cute pictures of the both of you only to get a ‘that’s a lot’ reply. To believe her story you’d have to believe I was the sh–tiest person on Earth. I may not be huggy, but I’m not sh–ty either. There is Bethenny’s version of events, and then there is reality.”
