Dorinda Medley Real Housewives Of New York

Real Housewives Of New York Recap: Medley’s Mexico Madness

More drunken Mexico antics can be expected on this new episode of The Real Housewives of New York. SO. MUCH. DRINKING. All season has felt like the longest bender ever. Did Bethenny Frankel really keep these women in check that much? However, maybe things will change for Sonja Morgan now that she stopped taking her “water pills”. That excuse seems a little weak, but maybe it will actually work.

Leah McSweeney and Corona Ramona Singer have been at odds for weeks, and it might be a lost cause. They’re fundamentally different. Everything they stand for is so opposite. One actually cares about people. The other does whatever she can to make people look and feel lesser than they are. You do the math to figure out who is who. Ramona has no clue how to handle someone like Leah, and it’s the perfect match made in hell for her.

These women get up so early on the morning after partying. I don’t know how they do it. They’re professionals. Who can party that hard and be good to go for a workout at sunrise? SCREW THAT. I’m not even trying to go to the gym on a good day. The morning after a wild night of drinking is just out of the question.

Dorinda Medley being the giver that she is decides to teach the trainers her own aerobics style. I will NOT have what she’s having. The 1980’s want their workouts back. Luann de Lesseps strolls outside on the prowl commenting at the ages of the trainers. Maybe she likes them Sonja young these days.

Leah is me in this equation. She’s just as shocked as I am that Luann and Dorinda already worked out. Leah is in bed with no motivation to do anything. More my speed.

Sonja wants to make sure her clothing line launch party is a success. For years nobody has ever taken her seriously because of her inability to produce a final product. This could be her one opportunity to have a legitimate business that the other women respect. I’d like to think she’s come a long way from the toaster oven days.

At breakfast Dorinda snaps at Sonja and Leah out of nowhere. Sonja and Leah have businesses, so they need to take care of them. There are no days off. Why is she so offended by them doing that? Weren’t they out there working on stuff before she even strolled out there?

Why is Dorinda so mean this season? She’s always had her moments, but this season has unleash an even nastier side of her. It’s as if the energy of Blue Stone Manor has permanently possessed her. She’s acting the way that house has made all of the ladies act over the years. Luann De Lesseps Real Housewives Of New York

Being on your phone during a meal is absolutely rude, but that’s not really how this went down. Leah was already there and getting her work done before everyone else showed up. Dorinda needs to shut it down a little. Going from 0 to 100 the way she does isn’t a great way to keep friendships.

Ramona misses the Dorinda of the olden days. Sorry Ramona, but Dorinda isn’t the only insufferable member of your group this season. You have embraced all of your worst qualities in the most magnifying way possible. Every episode you show how judgmental and bigoted you can be.

Luann and Leah run into two random men on the beach and bring them back to the villa. The flirtation is real. Ramona makes a dig about how it’s not even noon yet, and picking up men already. Luann is in her element doing this though. She’s brought back many how many times on this show? But she didn’t f**k the pirate!

Dorinda decides not to attend dinner because of some intestinal issues. She s**t her floor. What a whole mess. She needs to get checked out if she’s having frequent things like that. Dorinda is in the bathroom every 10 minutes, so going to dinner would be a disaster. Poor thing!

How bad is it though that Dorinda won’t be at dinner? They might be able to enjoy themselves without her snippy bitchy behavior. She has so much to say about a lot of the other women, but some self reflection would do her good. She’s been an unhappy miserable grump since the season began.

The two men from the beach actually show up at dinner, and all of the women look like they want a piece. Neither of the mean seem to want Ramona, and it’s the best part of the night. It’s so nice to see how quickly Leah integrated into this group. I don’t think we’ve ever seen a first season housewife gel so fast and make this much of an impact.

Everyone is happy Dorinda stayed at home so they could have a good time. Can’t really blame them there. The way she snaps and screams must be awful to be around. The dark cloud is out of the picture, and you can understand what everyone is saying.

Leah wastes little time hardcore making out with one of the men at the dinner. Sonja and Luann observing was hilarious. You know they wish it was them!

Luann shows Dorinda a photo of a singer in her show, and it turns out both Tinsley Mortimer and Ramona dated him. WHY IS WITH THIS WOMEN ALWAYS SHARING THE SAME MEN? This is like the forth instance of them all having been with the same guy. There are so many people in New York City, yet they always go after the same (usually awful) man.

Leah McSweeney Real Housewives Of New York

Dorinda arranges for the group to see a Shaman and then they drop into a hole of water. Luann and Dorinda do it flawlessly, but Leah is FREAKING out. For someone who comes across so bad ass all of the time, I wouldn’t have expected her to lose it over this.

Once they get down there, it’s stunning. The colors and the bats and the water all come together to create such a unique ambiance. I would do this in a heartbeat. I want to start doing things out of my comfort zone, and this would be a great idea. Words don’t do it justice. It looks downright magical.

Dorinda Medley Real Housewives Of New York

THE HYPOCRISY OF DORINDA. She takes a call from her daughter at the table, but doesn’t walk away from the table. You don’t get to have it both ways. If you want to take the call from her, walk the f**k away. You can’t lose your cool on Sonja and Leah for doing the exact same thing, and then think you’re exempt from your own decree.

Nobody at the table is on Dorinda’s side. She is clearly in the wrong here. Instead of owning it, she’s getting aggressive and sarcastic with the group. She’s blown up on everyone on this trip. It’s a problem. Cool it down. However, an ambush at the table is not the most ideal way to go about fixing it either.

Ramona takes it to the next level by breaking out her infamous crocodile tears. Why is she crying here? Why does she make everything about herself? Get a life. Dorinda comes back to the table and asks if she was okay from the traumatizing event. Okay, I’m not on Dorinda’s about this, but that shade at Ramona gives her extra points.

Despite Ramona’s best efforts, Leah refuses to turn on Dorinda. We’re close to a full Ramona take down I think. They’re not going to jeopardize that. Turtle Time is on it’s last legs, and the Ramona Coaster is going to ride for the last time soon.
