Dorinda Medley tried to make Bluestone Manor scary but “nice” for Halloween on the Real Housewives of New York. That ranged from peeping vampires, a Morgan mansion tour and a naked chef. Much to Dorinda’s annoyance, her costars thought sleeping in the fish room was the scariest thing about the manor.
The room assignment passed around like a hot potato. Ultimately, newcomer Barbara Kavovit was left holding it. The second scariest part was Sonja Morgan’s drunken meltdown at dinner, which was provoked by Dorinda manhandling some Morgan artifacts during their visit to Ventfort Hall.
Even though Dorinda Medley is housing everyone for free and providing yoga, massage therapists, naked chefs, and Morgan mansion tours, the Real Housewives of New York ladies couldn’t help being demanding.
No one wanted to sleep in the fish room at Dorinda’s Berkshires house- literally because of the decor. It isn’t in an undesirable location of the house. It has central air conditioning and heating. Oh, and it’s a room in a mansion. Who really cares about what’s on the wall? Apparently everyone. Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Tinsley Mortimer, and Barbara Kavovit didn’t want to sleep there. During last week’s episode, Luann stormed out of dinner just because she didn’t want to sleep in that room.
Bethenny Frankel even called ahead to make sure that she got to sleep in the “second best room” in the Berkshires mansion. During the next episode, Bethenny insisted that she would have no problem switching rooms with Luann if she texted her to ask about it. That’s easy to say about a hypothetical scenario. Does anyone believe that Queen B would really give up the (supposedly) superior room?
The cast of the Real Housewives of New York has departed the Hamptons for Dorinda Medley’s Blue Stone Manor in the Berkshires. Dorinda really did try and make it nice. That included a field trip to a historic Morgan House for Sonja Morgan’s sake where Dorinda casually touched some of the artifacts much to Sonja’s dismay.
Sonja still regrets the end of her dynastic marriage. So after they return to the lesser manor, she starts drinking like she’s making up for Luann de Lesseps. Drunk Sonja greets newcomer and latecomer Barbara Kavovit outside where in addition to insulting Dorinda’s apartment, Barbara hates on the fish room before setting foot inside. It’s not a great look on a houseguest. Or a new cast member.
It would make sense to assume that getting arrested and going to rehab (twice) would humble Luann de Lesseps. Unfortunately, that’s not what happened. She’s a cabaret star now. And she’s let the Jovani gowns inflate her already-massive ego.
She asked Dorinda Medley to arrange yoga classes during their visit to the Berkshires as if Dorinda is running some sort of resort. Maybe Lu just missed the group meditation at rehab? Not only that, but Lu also asked Dorinda to book massages. Why didn’t she just stay at a hotel instead? And then, after demanding all of those requests Luann stormed out because of her room assignment. Looking back on the (absurdly dumb) fight, Sonja Morgan blames Ramona Singer for instigating.
