Dorinda Medley seems to be starting a new chapter on the Real Housewives of New York. First, she managed to make peace with Luann de Lesseps, which is difficult, since neither of them knows her way around an apology. Then, like Luann, she decided it was time to move. Even though Dorinda’s embracing a new neighborhood in Manhattan rather than a round house, she adores it just as much.
By the standards of the Big Apple, Dorinda’s new pad is huge. That doesn’t mean there’s room for her boyfriend John Mahdessian. Despite his eagerness to move in, Dorinda made it clear that she wasn’t looking for a roommate….or a husband. “Past a certain age, people should not be allowed to be married,” Dorinda, said in a Real Housewives confessional. She also remarked, “It’s for the young! They have tolerance, they have dreams, they want babies. You get to my age and it’s just the opposite. I don’t even want a plant in my house!”
There is no question that Dorinda Medley is living her best life right now on Real Housewives of New York. She managed to put her differences with cabaret star Luann de Lesseps in her rear view. Last season Dorinda drunkenly heckled Luann at Luann’s cabaret debut by screaming “Jovani! Jovani!” So, Luann banned Dorinda from Barbara Kavovit’s clam bake.
When Dorinda once again hosted the ladies at her home in the Bezerkshires, she graciously accepted Countess Luann’s list of requirements. Dorinda arranged yoga and a massage for Luann. When Luann had a temper tantrum because she didn’t want to sleep in the infamous fish room, Dorinda plopped Barbara in the room instead. Dorinda spent $250,000 to display these taxidermy fishes. Don’t these ladies realize how hard Dorinda worked at making this room nice?
Real Housewives of New York is back, and Season 11 looks amazing so far! Faster than you can yell “Jovani” at a cabaret show, the continuing turmoil between Dorinda Medley and Luann De Lesseps was brought to the forefront. After all, Luann did not take kindly to Dorinda’s drunken
heckling enthusiastic support during her cabaret performance.
Of course, we all know it wasn’t about the Jovani. Instead, it was about Luann failing to invite Dorinda’s man, John Mahdessian to the big show. Dorinda’s blood was boiling once Tinsley Mortimer spilled the beans that Luann had invited her boyfriend, Scott Kluth, the day of the performance. Now that is some questionable etiquette, Countess.
This Dorinda Medley vs. Luann de Lesseps beef is all sorts of confusing. During the Season 10 finale, Dorinda was upset that Luann told Tinsley Mortimer to bring Scott Kluth to her cabaret show. This bothered her because her own man John Mahdessian did not get an invite.
During the cabaret, Luann wore several Jovani gowns. Earlier in the season, Dorinda brought Luann to the Jovani showroom to check out dresses. Somehow that all melded together and Dorinda yelled out “Jovani” multiple times during Lu’s performance. But if you ask Dorinda, she insists, she was NOT heckling. Ummmm. What is her definition of heckling?
There are so many Real Housewives shows. When is there going to be a crossover show with Housewives from different cities interacting? Can we at least get some sort of special? Andy Cohen, are you reading this? Probably not. Let’s continue.
Real Housewives of New York star Dorinda Medley and her boyfriend John Mahdessian attended the World’s Largest Disco. They made it a double date with Real Housewives of New Jersey couple Margaret Josephs and her husband Joe Benigno. Doesn’t this sound like a great episode already? Margaret and Dorinda rocking metallic outfits and dancing the night away. Sign me up. As far as I know, this outing was not filmed by Bravo cameras. Nevertheless, it really it should have been.
Happy pre-Friday! Today Jersey Shore cast members Roger Matthews and JWoww are giving us the warm fuzzies and maybe a glimmer of hope that love will win? Even though they announced their split and JWoww has filed for divorce, Roger has proclaimed that he won’t stop fighting to reconcile and we are cheering him on. They stepped out together with their daughter Meilani to attend the grand opening of DreamWorks Trolls The Experience in NYC.
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dolores Catania also attended the Trolls event, along with newbie Jennifer Aydin.
NeNe Leakes enjoyed a night out in Hollywood to celebrate the Fashion Nova x Cardi B Collaboration Launch event. Khloe Kardashian and Somaya Reece were also spotted at the party.
If the photos we’ve been seeing of the Real Housewives of New York cast at events over the past few months are any indication, we won’t be seeing as much of Bethenny Frankel or Luann de Lesseps this coming season. It seems to always be the Fab Four hanging out together: Sonja Morgan, Tinsley Mortimer, Dorinda Medley and Ramona Singer. Last night was another example of that. The ladies were having some fun together at the opening night of the Big Apple Circus at Lincoln Center in NYC.
Tinsley served as the Ringmaster/hostess of the opening night and Sonja Morgan was involved in some of the acts during the show, too. Also tagging along with the Fab Four: Dorinda’s beau John Mahdessian. He seems to attend a lot of these events with Dorinda, but stays low-key and off to the side mostly.
Check out the photos from their night out at the Big Apple Circus down in the gallery!
