Real Housewives of New York City is back tomorrow! Some of us cannot wait. Last season brought us Leah McSweeney, who instantly put Ramona Singer on high alert. Rumors are already swirling about Leah’s second year as a Housewife. For one, it looks like she negotiated a better salary, but it also looks like she maybe caused Heather Thomson to stop filming as a friend this season.
Leah however wasn’t the only big change last season. Fans also had to say goodbye to Dorinda Medley. What will this season hold without the queen of making it nice? Are we just not going to the Berkshires? Who’s going to stay in the fish room? Will RHONY producers even need to use closed captions this season? And who’s going to remind Lu that she can have Jovani? Tomorrow we’ll get some answers, but for now, we have the Countess speaking on what they’re all doing here this season without Dorinda.
During an interview with Us Weekly’s Getting Real with the Housewives podcast, Luann opened up about what it was like not filming with Dorinda. “You know what, it was a little less angry. I hate to say it,” she began. “There was a lot of anger and a lot of negative. I love Dorinda. It was just like the way it panned out. It was like the Tinsley thing. It was like kind of a negative energy,” Lu clarified.
“This season I feel like it’s you know, there was so much negativity going on in the world that we just had to keep it positive. You know? We had to go through so much that you just have to laugh sometimes and have a good time.” YES! This is the RHONY we need.

Lu even got a bit sentimental talking about filming, saying, “you know? The world can be falling apart and we have each other, so I’m grateful for that.” Then, he interviewer asked Lu if she’s spoken with Dorinda. She replied, “Oh, yeah. I keep in touch with Dorinda. I love Dorinda. We’re old friends and it just was the way it was last season, not to say that it would have been different if she was around this season, and that’s not my call, obviously. It was definitely a different season without her.”
When asked if she wants Dorinda to return, Lu said, “Listen, I, you know, I love Dorinda. I would love to see her back on the show.” I believe her too. Mostly because I want Dorinda back. But only after a nice pause from the show and some positive self-reflection.
