Even though Dorinda Medley is housing everyone for free and providing yoga, massage therapists, naked chefs, and Morgan mansion tours, the Real Housewives of New York ladies couldn’t help being demanding.
No one wanted to sleep in the fish room at Dorinda’s Berkshires house- literally because of the decor. It isn’t in an undesirable location of the house. It has central air conditioning and heating. Oh, and it’s a room in a mansion. Who really cares about what’s on the wall? Apparently everyone. Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Tinsley Mortimer, and Barbara Kavovit didn’t want to sleep there. During last week’s episode, Luann stormed out of dinner just because she didn’t want to sleep in that room.
Bethenny Frankel even called ahead to make sure that she got to sleep in the “second best room” in the Berkshires mansion. During the next episode, Bethenny insisted that she would have no problem switching rooms with Luann if she texted her to ask about it. That’s easy to say about a hypothetical scenario. Does anyone believe that Queen B would really give up the (supposedly) superior room?
Is it the prettiest room in the world? Definitely not. But again, it’s a room in mansion, where the ladies get to stay for free. Plus, they literally got paid to be there since they are all cast members on Real Housewives of New York. They all needed to calm down. It’s not scary. It is tacky. And apparently expensive.
Dorinda said the fish room cost $250,000 to put together. Just imagine having $250,000 at your disposal just to decorate a room. Just one room. Bravo’s Home & Design page reports that the fish room costs a quarter of a million dollars because of the mounted fish on the walls.
Just one of them cost $12,000. That’s really not my aesthetic, but imagine having so much disposable income to spend thousands of dollars on non-functional home decor.
