Dorinda Medley Tinsley Mortimer Real Housewives Of New York

The ladies of the Big Apple have made it through another season. It’s been a wild and wacky season, and many are still crushed by the news of Dorinda Medley’s departure. If this reunion is truly her swan song on The Real Housewives Of New York, she’s going down swinging. However, she has a lot to answer for, starting with her despicable treatment of forester cast mate Tinsley Mortimer.

Hopefully Dorinda Medley isn’t the only wife in the hot seat at the reunion. Fingers crossed that Corona Ramona Singer is held accountable for her reckless behavior in the wake of a global pandemic. With Leah McSweeney on the cast this season, that shouldn’t be a problem. Ignorance is bliss when it comes to Ramona, but someone needs to pop that bubble. It’s also the first in-person reunion in months, so anything can happen.

Say it isn’t so! The Real Housewives Of New York are finishing out their 12th season. I already miss them. This hasn’t been the best season by any means, but it had it’s standout moments. The most notable event of the season was the perfect casting of Leah McSweeney. She fit into the group so quickly and thrived even after her friend Tinsley Mortimer walked away.

Dorinda Medley has been fueled by anger all season, and this finale won’t be any different. She supposedly loses her cool on everyone at the mere mention of Tinsley. What bothers her so much about Tinsley? Dorinda didn’t even care for the poor girl. Let her run off and chase love and leave her be. The group has been getting more fed up with Dorinda’s anger each episode. It’s not too surprising this will be her final season.

Dorinda Medley Real Housewives Of New York

This episode is going to hit a little differently after the news Dorinda Medley is leaving The Real Housewives Of New York. They say all good things must come to an end. It hasn’t exactly been the best season for her, so it’s not all that surprising. Ramona Singer tried telling Dorinda she has anger issues, but you can’t tell someone something they don’t want to hear.

The season has felt like a disjointed mess at times, but through it all, they give us the humor and drama we want. There isn’t a whole lot happening heading into one of the final episodes of the season, so hopefully it’s good. On last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York, it was so nice to see a positive moment for Sonja Morgan. At last, she finally came through on something. Now come on ladies, give us a solid end to this season!

Ramona Singer Real Housewives Of New York

Real Housewives of New York is on tonight and the ladies gather to celebrate Dorinda Medley’s birthday, which feels a little strange since we know that Dorinda got fired “left the show.” It’s hard to be invested in anything she has going on at this point. Then again, I felt that way anyway since she refused to listen to anyone all season long. Normally, controversy entertains, but with Dorinda this season, I just couldn’t help being frustrated from my couch at home. I can’t imagine how annoyed the other cast members felt being stuck with her in person.

But, anyway, Dorinda’s ex John Mahdessian is in attendance at her birthday and so is drunk Luann de Lesseps, who we haven’t seen in a bit. Of course, she uses Dorinda’s birthday as yet another opportunity to do her best Marilyn Monroe-style rendition of “Happy Birthday.”

After a hiatus, Real Housewives of New York returns tonight with a new episode, the first since Tinsley Mortimer announced her departure from the show.

It will be interesting to see who Dorinda picks on argues with from this point forward.

When Dorinda Medley first joined Real Housewives of New York, she was an instant fan favorite, with her hilarious one-liners and fun attitude. This season? Not so much. It was just so uncomfortable to see her (seemingly) going after Tinsley Mortimer. Even Dorinda herself admitted that it was tough to watch herself on the show this season.

Maybe things will get better in the second half of the season now that Tinsley is in Chicago and off the show. Or, perhaps, she will just misdirect her anger at another cast member, which seems to be the most likely scenario at this point.

The Real Housewives of New York ladies are still in Newport, Rhode Island on tonight’s episode. And the “fun” continues. Tinsley Mortimer hosts a dinner for the cast, which doesn’t go well. Ramona Singer ditches the group to flirt with random men at the bar.

That behavior is expected for Ramona. And, at some point, Leah McSweeney hurls at ravioli at Ramona for screentime.

 

Real Housewives Of New York Dorinda Medley

The Real Housewives of New York has hit the ground drunk and stumbling this season. To be fair, the women of New York have always been intoxicated messes. Losing teeth in clubs, turtle time, falling into bushes, and making out naked in pools. No shade. It’s all incredible! That said, arguably one of the messiest of the group is none other than Dorinda Medley. What little I can understand of what Dorinda says drunk is enough to take the cake with this crew. And that’s saying a lot.

This season we have watched Dorinda struggle with her break from “boyfriend”John Mahdessian while continuing to mourn her late husband, Richard. In last week’s episode these feelings all bubbled to the surface when we watched Dorinda lash out at Tinsley Mortimer. I’m still not sure what Tinsley ever did to Dorinda, other than be born into wealth. Dorinda is still a dog with a bone continuing to bash Tinsley recently for “never owning anything“. Like, what? Dorinda at least half of your storylines are based on your late husband’s house that you let Carole Radziwill name your first season. Relax. Even though in this week’s episode Dorinda switched the focus of her anger to Ramona Singer, she is still talking about watching herself scream at Tinsley last week.
