Dorinda Luann
Besides some missing lobsters, the main storyline on season 11 of Real Housewives of New York is the bad blood between Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley. It’s a shame they can’t drink and make up!  But they can’t, and Luann’s hard-fought sobriety is part of the problem. An emotional dumpster fire conflagration that began last season when Luann— between trips to rehab– threw shade on Dorinda for her drinking.
I never thought Sonja Morgan would be the voice of reason, but she spoke for all of us when she said Luann shouldn’t be advising Dorinda about her drinking. No good has come of it. Bethenny Frankel tried to settle the beef at a “gangster lunch” last episode, which ended in a truce. A truce as opposed to a heartfelt reconciliation because Dorinda refused to admit heckling Luann.

Dorinda Medley Says She Thought Relationship With Luann De Lesseps Was “In A Better Place;” Bethenny Frankel’s Suffering “Breaks My Heart”

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.

Dorinda Medley On Luann De Lesseps: “Just Stay Out Of Rehab. Stop Worrying About Me.”

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?

Dorinda-Medley-Margaret-Josephs

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.

Reality Star Sightings

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.

Tinsley Mortimer And Her Real Housewives of New York Co-Stars Have Fun At The Big Apple Circus Opening Night – Photos

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!

Dorinda Medley

Just days after taping the Real Housewives of New York City reunion episodes, Dorinda Medley chatted up Brandi Glanville on her podcast, Brandi Glanville Unfiltered. Dorinda dished on her relationship with John Mahdessian, including why he isn’t on the show this season. She also talked about the fractured relationship between Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel and why she doesn’t look forward to the break in filming between seasons.

On everyone loving Dorinda: “I hope that’s true. People say that but you never know if it’s true or not. I love the fact that I’m loved. Who doesn’t wanna be loved?” Brandi interjected, “It sucks to be hated, I’ve been there, girl.”

Dorinda added, “I try to be the voice of reason. Although I don’t succeed all the time, I try not to judge too much.

I’m a forgiver. I don’t hold grudges.”

On the current season of Real Housewives of New York, Carole Radziwill has an up and down relationship with Adam Kenworthy. Her costar Tinsley Mortimer has an on-again-off-again relationship with Scott Kluth. Dorinda Medley is still going strong with John Mahdessian.

The three Real Housewives of New York duos (because who knows if “couple” is actually the applicable word in every instance) went to Dubai with some friends. They all visited Ladies of London star Caroline Stanbury.
