Dorinda Medley Address Jill Zarin’s Claims That She Blocked Her From Real Housewives Cast Trip; Says She’s Still In Touch With Bethenny Frankel

What could have been missing from the Real Housewives of New York seasonal trip to the Berkshires?  It’s not over yet, but the RHONY ladies already had an explosive blowup, fueled by a copious amount of alcohol,

Luann de Lesseps massive ego, and Dorinda Medley’s unhinged behavior.  Sonja Morgan was cheerfully tipsy until she brought up the lack of compensation for appearing in Luann’s cabaret.  The evening went to hell quickly afterward.

Would the evening have ended differently if the guest list was altered?  The perfect person would have long-standing relationships with most of the women, would be able to speak up to Dorinda, and would be desperate to get back on the show.  That sounds like Jill Zarin.  And two weeks ago, Jill was indignantly claiming that Dorinda had blocked her from participating in the cast trip.  After seeing last week’s episode, did Jill really feel like she missed out on something?

Since the disastrous first night at Blue Stone Manor aired, Dorinda replied to Jill’s claim regarding blocking her from the guest list. Dorinda appeared on Watch What Happens Live last week,   where she dished on her relationships with  RHONY alumni.

First, Dorinda was asked if she keeps in touch with Bethenny Frankel.  She replied, “Absolutely.  I keep in touch with a lot of the old housewives.”

When Andy Cohen asked Dorinda about Jill, she joked, “Who’s that?”

Andy persisted, and pointed out that Dorinda’s friendships with Sonja, Luann, and Ramona Singer would have put her in social situations with Jill throughout the years.

Dorinda finally addressed Jill’s social media post about the Berkshires trip.  She said, “Jill just wrote me a text like three weeks ago wanting to give me a free outdoor carpet in this big long text. And then I saw this.”

Does Dorinda have the upper hand over production to create the guest list?  Dorinda said no.  “I didn’t even know I had the right to invite non-cast members on a cast party,” she explained, “that’s really not anything….It was bizarre.”

The Berkshires trip is always a hot mess of fights and drama.  Is an invite there so desirable?
