Dorinda Medley is weighing in on the premiere episode of Real Housewives of New York. Needless to say, she’s not happy with co-star Bethenny Frankel and the cold way she “welcomed” Jules Wainstein to the cast.
Dorinda started her blog gushing over how much she loves Jules and sharing the story of how they met at a wedding for a mutual friend. “I walked over and said, “I don’t know who you are, what you do, and why you’re here, but I want to know all of it, because I need you in my life.” She laughed and snorted when I wouldn’t stop laughing. And that was the beginning of a beautiful friendship!”
Dorinda shares, “I adore her, and it was almost crushing to see her first lap around the Housewife track be so difficult with Queen B. Her first introduction at Catch was not only overloaded with comparisons and fast judgments, it was unnecessarily mean. I saw one of my dearest friends be compared to Bethenny’s Mommie Dearest, and then there was another Star Wars reference for Michael, and that’s just not nice. Not nice, B… One question for you: WHY?!”
She’s glad not to be the new girl anymore, but admits that her intro was much less harsh than Jules’ has been. “The one good thing for me is that I’m no longer the newbie, so some of that pressure is off of me, BUT not even I got grilled, seared, boiled and fried on the first day like Jules was. She’s a tough cookie, that Jules. She’ll be fine. And no matter what anyone does, no one can “ruin” a good thing when it comes to Jules. You’ll see.”
Dorinda then lashes back at Bethenny’s accusations about her drinking in the Hamptons, “Good ol’ Dorinda gets the full treatment too. Here’s the thing, I didn’t get “carried out” of nowhere. I was very upset by a comment she made, and I did not bounce back from it very easily. We were having a party, it was late, and a few too many mouths were yapping about things that don’t concern them. Bethenny knows what I’m talking about. As you saw in this episode, Bethenny has an opinion on everything, and it’s usually not a nice one. It’s just not nice! If it’s not someone’s boyfriend, it’s their home, or their friends, or their lifestyle, or their breakfast choices…there’s always an opinion. OK I get it…she doesn’t like John! That’s fine. I don’t need her to. I don’t need anyone to like John. I don’t need anyone to like ME either. Here’s the thing, I was raised to be polite, to be accepting, and if someone wrongs you, respond, get your point across, and make sure it echoes. I’m used to watching these girls take down anyone or anything that they don’t like or understand. And like I said at the reunion last year, “Here’s the good thing…I DON’T GIVE A SH–!” I love John, I care for John, he loves me, I love him, and that’s all that matters to me, and that’s all that’s important. At the end of the day, I also have my opinions about how someone runs their life or their family or their love life, but I’m their friend, not their mother, not their husband, and not their boss. A friend is supportive, understanding, and unconditionally loving and loyal. Period.”
She also admits she was wrong about Carole and Adam and is happy to see them going strong. She is also hoping for the same love connection for Ramona, “I can’t wait to be able to say that about Ramona too. She looks absolutely better than ever. She’s really having the time of her life and, considering what SHE’S gone through too, she deserves it. Listen, divorce weighs a woman down, that’s for sure, but look at how she’s bounced back…and I mean BOUNCE! One thing is certain: you can’t keep a good girl down.”
