Dorinda admits right out of the gate that she’s struggling to explain her thoughts after this week’s episode, “I’m having a really hard time putting my feelings into words this week. I still can’t really believe what happened and have had to watch it three times just to get my head around it.”
Of course, Bethenny is the queen of “I told you so,” and she’s also still wary of new addition Jules Wainstein. Someone younger and skinnier? She must be horrendous! (At least according to the laws of Skinnygirl).
Except before John even arrived, the ladies were having trouble keeping their opinions to themselves.
Poor Jules got quite an initiation attending her first RHONY party. She believed Dorinda Medley invited her to shop for lingerie, but quickly learned that was merely a scantily clad covering for drama! “One minute you’re the hostess… next, you’re NOT the mostest,” muses Jules.
After the blow up between Dorinda, Bethenny Frankel, and Ramona at the brassiere (or “brawr” – depending on who you ask) party, everyone has a drink and Dorinda puffs a Newport Light 100 (or maybe it was one of Jules Wainstein‘s Virginia Slims left over from 1977 kept in a fireproof dry box under the bed, the blessed creatures pulled out for emergencies only. She better buy some on eBay to get through Real Housewives Of New York).
Tonight’s episode of Watch What Happens Live featured a pretty laid back Sonja Morgan and an always adorable Fredrik Eklund. Amy Schumer was originally scheduled to be there with Ramona, but Amy had a throat issue and is hoping to make an appearance next week, where Ramona is now scheduled.
They jump right in with questions. Is Sonja helping Luann de Lessepsplan her wedding? “We do spend a lot of time talking about it. She is over the moon excited.” Andy mentions that Sonja dated Lu’s guy, “That’s right, so I know both very well.” And she confirms that Ramona dated him, too. “It’s going to be very interesting, you’ll have to watch.”
To quote Bethenny, Dorinda quips, “I have to say that the gild is not only off this lily, but it has been scraped off, melted off, trampled on, etc,” and “proves that this wasn’t ‘the summer & fall of zero f—s,’ because I’m clearly in [Bethenny’s] radar.”
“Not only is there a lot to talk about Dorinda, Dorinda, Dorinda, but there’s a FASCINATION with my life and relationship with John,” she points out.
Ramona seems to be having difficulty keeping confidences close with her old friendships – she’s reportedly having issues with Sonja, and her unhappiness with Dorinda’s choice of boyfriend is really bringing out the worst in old Pinot!
