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!
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.”
Apparently, Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel are still on the same page about one thing: their love for Dorinda Medley. After the news broke that Dorinda would not be on Real Housewives of New York next season, Bethenny shared some kind words of support, encouraging Dorinda not to let others “dull her sparkle.”
Carole also shared some supportive words following Dorinda’s exit, but she didn’t just keep it positive. She called out Luann de Lesseps and shaded the other cast members as well.
During a recent episode of Real Housewives of New York, Luann de Lesseps showed Dorinda Medley photos of an “American Idol winner” on her phone, who was set to appear in Lu’s cabaret. His name was bleeped out during the conversation, but in addition to pointing out how hot she thinks he is, Lu said that he dated Tinsley Mortimer.
Ramona Singer chimed in that she dated him too, which is shocking since Ramona never fesses up to dating anyone specifically…even though she’s always bragging about double-booking dates, which just makes zero sense. It took fans virtually no time to figure out that the ladies were talking about Constantine Maroulis, who didn’t actually win American Idol. However, he did get in sixth place during season 4.
The Mexico trip is almost over, but the Real Housewives of New York are probably happy about that. The trip has seen so much chaos and turbulence in the group. From the initial issue between Ramona Singer and Leah McSweeney to the renewed focus on Dorinda Medley’s anger, it’s been a journey. On last week’s Real Housewives of New York episode, Ramona tried confronting Dorinda, and it went horribly wrong.
Ramona might be one of the worst possible people to be dishing out life advice. She treats people just as badly most of the time. Another thing coming up soon is Sonja Morgan’s big fashion event at Century 21. After so many years of claiming to be working on so many things, this might actually happen. Cross your fingers folks, and hope Sonja pulls through. If she has another failed business, her friends might lose hope for her forever.
The Real Housewives of New York cast members are still partying in Cancun, Mexico during tonight’s upcoming episode.
On the very last night of the vacation Ramona Singer decides to address Dorinda Medley’s anger issues in a group text. I don’t know why she doesn’t just do this in person since the whole cast is on the trip though. Oh, wait. We all saw how that went last week when Dorinda refused to listen to anyone else and threw a temper tantrum at lunch. On second thought, I don’t blame Ramona for turning to a group text. It just seems like too much of a headache to deal with in person.
You know a Real Housewives conflict matters when cast members from a different series have an opinion on the situation. Take the accusations of infidelity and intimidation that Brandi Glanville lobbed at Denise Richards. Not only did Brandi claim that she and Denise had an affair, but that Denise demanded her discretion and silence about what allegedly happened between them.
Denise was grilled about it multiple times by the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast and had a hard time defending herself. Though Brandi claimed Denise and husband Aaron Phypers had an open marriage, Denise’s level of hurt and humiliation over the rumors would contradict that claim. Co-star Garcelle Beauvais questioned how Denise handled the situation, suggesting that she needed to stand up for herself. Now, another housewife is suggesting how Denise could have handled the rumors differently.
