Dorinda Medley began this season of The Real Housewives of New York in the hot seat, so she was relieved to be more of a bit part character last week. Calling her RHONY castmates “killer sharks,” Dorinda jokes that “the moment they stop moving, stop preying, stop stinging, they die.” So, who are they zeroed in on now? Newbie Jules Wainstein, of course!
Dorinda is relieved, but wary. “This week, it’s a relief to see there’s been a cosmic shift away from ME. I’m not in the crosshairs, but like I said last week, that means Jules is in the hot seat, and this one has been set to ROAST.” She adds, “So by now, you’ve seen that Jules is on the spit, getting turned very slowly.Sonja [Morgan’s] on the back burner, just at a simmer, with Luann de Lesseps on the counter, getting primped and prepped for her day in the sun. This is one kitchen I’m glad to be out of at this point.”
The standout moment from last night’s Real Housewives Of New York was that nearly every woman wore the exact same dress to Ramona Singer‘s birthday lunch. We’re no longer fighting for control of Ramona Blue, it is now Ramona Red!
Dorinda Medley meets Carole Radziwill for dumplings. Of course, the real reason for this feast is to discuss everything that went down in the Hamptons at Jules Wainstein‘s Joker’s Funhouse of Construction Deathtraps. Carole says it was an awkward vibe, but surprisingly admits that she and Bethenny Frankel behaved badly.
Suddenly, careening through the door in a gold leather jacket, like The Flash (if he lingered a whisper of pissiness and perfume), is Jules. She plops down – I never even had time to notice if she ate or not because she talked so much and so fast about the terrible impression Bethenny’s abrasiveness has given her.
But Jules has high praise for Countess Luanne deLesseps, who she deems to be “nothing but sweetness.” Oh, newbie housewife! Beware of first impressions…they evaporate quickly in the face of narcissism and delusion! Jules reflects on Bethenny’s “birthday tailgate” party first: “Here we are in the Hamptons, my home away from home. I ‘m loving that John and Dorinda [Medley] were with us that weekend, because we had such a great time having them; tons of fun, laughs, and an all-around good time as always. We are all here to celebrate Bethenny’s birthday on Saturday, a tailgate-themed party, and I always love a good festive theme. The party was very well done, every ‘I’ was dotted and every ‘T’ crossed, yet the energy was off.”
It’s very difficult for a Real Housewife to admit her mistakes and be accountable for her words and actions. Dorinda Medley is the exception to that norm. There might be other Real Housewives that do the same, but no one else consistently comes to mind in all honesty. But anyway, Dorinda put up her blog entry following the most recent Real Housewives of New York Cityepisode and she is saying what most of the viewers are thinking.
It really seems like Dorinda makes the effort to give an honest opinion no matter where her loyalties lie. She has no issue calling out her boyfriend for his mistakes, checking a close friend for her behavior, or even admitting if she does something wrong herself. Dorinda just wants to know why people can’t own what they do and just try to get along

In a desperate attempt to make us appreciate her cleverness, the Real Housewives Of New York star bragged of her blog, “I slay like Beyonce! Who is your THN? #rhony” (Let’s hope that was sarcasm, cause um…. otherwise someone put batshit crazy in Carole’s lemonade.) Inviting viewers to name “‘The Housewife Narcissist’ in each city and win a prize!” resulted in Carole re-tweeting a list which included NeNe Leakes!
Carole didn’t leave all of her barbs to the episode though, she continued to come for Luann after the fact. In her Bravo blog, Carole gave The Countess a new nickname and it is not a very nice one: The Housewife Narcissist. For a writer, that really is not the catchiest or most concise insult, but her message is definitely loud and clear. So why does Carole feel like this is more fitting than acknowledging Luann by name in her write-up?
These women on Real Housewives go through a lot of drama- and then they have to watch it all again on TV and hear what everyone had to say behind their back. So I imagine that makes it pretty difficult to get past an argument with a friend (or even a frienemy). On the latest episode of RHONY, Luann de Lesseps did what she could to make amends with Carole Radziwill, but Carole was not having it. Neither of them felt like they had anything to apologize for so they just agreed to be cordial…supposedly.
Carole made a lot of comments about Luann during the interviews so I guess that agreement was short-lived. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to say that this whole fight should be put on Carole, but they both talked a lot of shit about each other. So they both should have just apologized. At least Luann tried to be civil in the Hamptons, but just like the rest of us fans, she also watched the episode and was caught off guard by Carole‘s comments about her. Luckily for us, we don’t have to wait for the next RHONY reunion to hear what she has to say. Luann put all of her reactions in her Bravo blog this week.
