At this point in the season, it’s clear that Carole and Bethenny aren’t as close as they used to be, but nothing has really happened yet. There has been some underlying tension in every episode, but it hasn’t truly come to a head. That hasn’t stopped Carole from the spoiling the fact that the former close friends are not on good terms these days. In contrast, Bethenny hasn’t said much about it in public, other than unfollowing Carole on Instagram. Does she not care? Is she just trying to keep the spoilers under wraps? Maybe she’s just too busy saving the world and running her empire. Nevertheless, I’m sure those zingers are coming.
It used to be the Berkshires where The Real Housewives of New York collectively lost their effin’ minds. But Dorinda Medley has backed that sh*t up and backed it up real fast – all the way to the first trip of the year in the Hamptons. The scene of the crime: Luann de Lesseps’ white-on-white dining area. The accused: Sonja T. Morgan. The witnesses: Ramona Singer and some other random chick whose name I think might be Mary and who looks ready to die of television-related embarrassment.
Since we were last upon the scene, Dorinda’s face has gone from fuchsia to full-on fire engine red and spittle has gathered in the corners of her mouth. Essentially, Dorinda is frothing. As she rails at Sonja for her lies, hurling bombshells about her failed marriage straight in her face, Sonja emotionally goes blank. Like, scary blank. She sips her veggies, shrugs her shoulders, and heads straight to her imaginary happy land – which is likely somewhere that exists circa 2002 in Southern France. Even Ramona screaming, “YOU NEED TO APOLOGIZE!” after Dorinda storms out of the room doesn’t phase Sonja. Dude. She’s in the sunken place.
There are few things more entertaining than a Dorinda Medleyfreak out. As her friend in my mind, I do feel bad whenever she is upset, but I cannot help being entertained every time she rants against Sonja Morgan– or whoever offended her, but it is usually Sonja.
For years Sonja has been talking about her divorce, her daughter starting boarding school and European yacht parties as if this was all current news. For the most part Sonja’s delusion and confusion is endearing and funny, but Dorinda had enough of it in the Hamptons. Sonja dared to compare her divorce (which was finalized in 2006) to death of Dorinda’s husband and Dorinda just couldn’t let it slide.
We’re halfway through the week! Time to check out what the reality stars have been up to. Sonja Morgan busted out her best animal print dress for the EarthxGlobal Gala in Dallas, Texas. Brandi Glanville was spotted during a night out with a friend in L.A. and we have many more sightings in our gallery this week!
The Real Housewives of New York star Carole Radziwill attended an event in NYC: “Enchanted Evening” while her co-star Bethenny Frankel spoke at the Dress For Success Be Bold gala, alongside her daughter Brynn.
Other RHONY stars out and about included Sonja Morgan at the Swarovski Times Square Celebration and Dorinda Medley at the opening of Christian Siriano‘s New Store, The Curated NYC, along with John Mahdessian.
Former Real Housewives of New York star Heather Thomson has been busy running her businesses and living life since leaving the show, but she took a little time recently to sit down and share her thoughts on her former co-stars and more.
This week, The Real Housewives of New York hit the road. It’s time for everyone to assemble at the dinner table and give one another a verbal dressing down. Because this is what they do best, no? The ladies are heading to the Hamptons for Bethenny Frankel’s birthday, Carole Radziwill’s post-marathon soiree – hosted by Hamptons maven herself, Ramona Singer – and for the annual WWE match between Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan. Dorinda has been mainlining martinis in preparation for the event. Sonja has been taking her kaftans out of cellophane for the event.
Carole is driving up with Tinsley Mortimer and Dorinda. But the bigger point of contention is where she’s staying – at a hotel with Tinsley instead of at Bethenny’s Hamptons pad. Why? Well, we get two different answers. Carole says that Bethenny’s “got a full house” so she opted to stay elsewhere. But Bethenny claims she invited Carole, but thinks her ex-bestie doesn’t want to come over because Bethenny’s daughter will be there. “Carole needs a best friend really close to at all times,” says Bethenny, who presumes Tinsley is this new best friend. “They’re thick as thieves.”
She still has tension with her former roommate Sonja Morgan, she’s coming for Luann de Lesseps and her quickie marriage to Tom D’Agostino, and she has an on-again-off-again romance with Scott Kluth. She’s even straightened her hair for a scene or two- which is a big deal considering how attached she is to her signature curls.
