Last week, Queer Eye star Bobby Berk made headlines after accusing one of the ‘Wives of stealing from his store back in the day. In a new interview, Dorinda addressed the drama, and it turns out she’s not a huge fan of someone making vague accusations against any of her fellow RHONY stars.
“What’s the point? Where are we going with this?” Dorinda asked host Chanel Omari on her podcast Chanel in the City. “And you know, timing’s terrible… Here’s the thing, say who it is or don’t say it at all. I don’t do riddles, okay?
“Say who it is, or don’t say it at all,” she reiterated to the former Princess: Long Island star. “Because then you’re painting the paint stroke very wide on a lot of Housewives. And I think it’s actually putting a negative sort of tone on Housewives. So say who it is, or don’t say it at all. I don’t fire sideways, I fire straight.”
While that last tidbit about Dorinda‘s aim may be a bit questionable this season (just ask Tinsley Mortimer), many fans were quick to piece together that Bobby was likely referring to Aviva Drescher. (Back in 2014 when the alleged incident happened the Queer Eye star called Avivia a “con-artist” on Twitter. This was roughly when she moved into a new apartment on the show, and long before Netflix made him famous.)
As for Dorinda, though, she admitted she’s only a distant acquaintance of her leg-throwing fellow Housewife. “I don’t know Aviva that well. I’ve met her a couple times; remember, I wasn’t on [the show] with her,” she explained. (Aviva starred on the show in Seasons 5 and 6. Dorinda didn’t join the cast until Season 7.) “I don’t really know her that well, she’s always perfectly nice to me. I mean, I know nothing about her background or… Why would they think it’s Aviva? Just explain that to me.”

In the end, the RHONY veteran had some harsh thoughts for the member of the Fab Five. “It’s tacky, and you know what? Five minutes of fame,” she said. “Hope you got it. Hope you liked it. Let’s keep it moving. Tell a story about me instead. I’ll get right up there and let you know the truth.”
