I loved Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip season 1. And based on the recently released trailer, I have a feeling I’m going to love season 2. Because of the marital status of the housewives cast for the series, it has officially been named Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Ex-Wives Club. Catchy! The cast includes former Real Housewives of Orange County stars Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. Past Real Housewives of Atlanta cast members Phaedra Parks and Eva Marcille. In addition, we will see Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Taylor Armstrong and Brandi Glanville. Finally, representing Real Housewives of New York is OG Jill Zarin and Dorinda Medley, who was let go after 6 seasons.
But Dorinda, known for “making it nice,” decided to host the affair at her famous Blue Stone Manor. The estate is located in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. And has plenty of room for the housewives for get into trouble, which they obviously did. Dorinda recently told Page Six, “We had our moments.” That’s probably the understatement of the year. She added, “We were there for eight days, filming 12-14 hours a day so I have to say we all irritated each other at some point.”
Despite a lot of feuding, Dorinda admitted, “I think the people who irritated me the least were probably Phaedra and Eva.” That doesn’t surprise me at all since Phaedra and Eva are so chill. The trailer even features Eva hiding and saying she wants to steer clear of the drama. She might have picked the wrong show.
Dorinda went on to explain, “You gotta remember I hadn’t had anyone at Blue Stone Manor for almost 16 months and then eight women, some I knew well, some I didn’t know at all, some I knew a little bit, and then put them in Blue Stone Manor when it was still technically COVID. We were stuck there, so even in the best of circumstances, I think people would get a little bit annoyed with each other.” Another understatement!
As for being let go in 2020, Dorinda has had some time to reflect. She admitted, “Listen you’re never happy to be put on the famous red pause, in other words being fired. In my life, if you’re not working you’re fired.” She added, “It was COVID, so it was great to be with my family at Blue Stone Manor and get [my] bourbon line out. I was on for six years, sometimes rejection is protection right? It was a great opportunity to build myself and reset.”
