Socialite Dorinda Medley is the newest Housewife on Real Housewives Of New York in a season that promises tons of ups and downs. The long-time Upper East Side resident warns that she “loves” a good argument and isn’t afraid of drama, or being herself.
Dorinda, a close friend of Ramona Singer, explains that although she’s the new Housewife, she’s very familiar with the way these girls roll! “I know these girls. I know their world. I’ve even done a few cameos,” explains Dorinda.
“So I thought, why not give it a try and see if it is something that suits me? I live on the Upper East Side, and it’s a small fishbowl up here,” continues Dorinda. “I am not going to be that ball of yarn that came out of nowhere.”
Producers are complaining “the season isn’t what they thought it would be,” share insiders. “With the exception of Bethenny, the season is not high drama.” However, Andy Cohen recently tweeted about how exciting this season would be!
I Suck… gives readers 10 helpful tips to avoid “screwing up your happily ever after.” Bethenny explains she was inspired to write the book because, while she is “very good” at business, she is obviously, “VERY bad” at love. “When it comes to my love life, I’m the first to admit that I’ve had a few bumps in the road.”
Whew – so drama is steeping on Real Housewives Of New York – and by the sound of things, no one is getting along very well with Bethenny Frankel. In a new interview the cast is evasive, but seems to imply that Bethenny is not meshing well with the newer Housewives! With the 7th season premiering April 7th, the cast says the theme will be “true friendships,” while being very evasive about where Bethenny fits into that!
Andy Cohen described the season as “#RHOMG” tweeting:
Bethenny confirmed this season has been interesting and assures that she does not shy away from drama or confrontation – and she also leaked that RHONY will be hitting our TV screens soon!
Bethenny won’t help co-stars promote their ventures, attend their events, or participate in various filming obligations, but she demands everyone to support all of her ventures and she’ll sell photos of herself to the paparazzi nonstop!
So what I understand: Bethenny is a self-absorbed biatch, who is all about Bethenny, just like always, and people are annoyed?
Well, well – there are bigger troubles in the Big Apple than the horrendous weather! And that trouble is Bethenny Frankel. Why am I not surprised? LuAnn de Lesseps, who announced she’s “fully back” as a full-time Housewife this season, says Bethenny is at war with co-stars and it’s been a dramatic dynamic for the Real Housewives Of New York cast!
LuAnn maintains that she and Bethenny get along just fine, which is quite a departure from their previous relationship on-screen. “I didn’t know what it was gonna be like, I thought it was going to be awkward but it’s actually turned out to be good.”
She feels Bethenny brings an old-school RHONY vibe to the show. “We get along really well so it’s like old times … it’s kind of like the good old days of the Housewives,” LuAnn acknowledged.
Sonja Morgan has finally launched a business! Sadly it’s not a toaster oven. The Real Housewives Of New York star held a party and fashion show to celebrate the launch of Sonja Morgan New York Brands, which will make its official debut in Summer 2015. But the show was not without drama when Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel exploded into an argument during the runway show!
Sonja Morgan’s first foray into the fashion industry features a capsule collection of “essentials” featuring ready-to-wear, sportswear, evening wear, and swimwear as well as a jewelry line “echoing Sonja’s classic yet sexy style, her collection is vibrant and timeless.” It will be available in department stores and retail establishments this summer, according to Sonja, whose businesses have a way of disappearing on us!
