Sonja Morgan Clarifies Dorinda Medley Made Fun Of Luann de Lesseps’s Lawsuit, Not Her

Last week on the Real Housewives of New York, Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley ended up in the same room, twice. That was progress (sort of) in their ongoing feud, which is the major storyline of Season 11. First, at Sonja Morgan’s Paper Magazine party where Dorinda told Luann she loved her, which was not-at-all convincing. So only Sonja was ready to kiss and make up. In this case a “drive-by lesbian moment” with a young stunning brunette.

Bethenny Frankel tried again with the duo at a gangsta lunch, which resulted in a truce. Barbara Kavovit was also there. Dorinda then invited Barbara to her apartment to discuss renovations and the feud. Dorinda used the opportunity to lie when she was asked if she’d been making fun of Luann’s lawsuit with her ex-husband and children. Thankfully, the editors rolled the tapes showing the receipts.  Dorinda blamed Sonja before bursting into tears and throwing Barbara out of her apartment.

Denise Richards

Denise Richards has been such a breath of fresh air for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She comes across real, genuine, and having no desire to put on a facade. Plus, it’s nice to see that she’s as confused about the dog drama as we are! However, just because Denise is genuine and authentic doesn’t mean her fellow Housewives are.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills struggle with authenticity. First you have Camille Grammer who very clearly changed personalities between seasons 1 and 2. Brandi Glanville says that Kyle Richards acts one way with Lisa Vanderpump in her life, and another way when they are apart. Most of the cast says LVP is secretly manipulative. Finally, Lisa Rinna openly said she was turning into the “nicest f***ing Lisa Rinna”

Tom D’Agostino Claims Luann de Lesseps Cheated First

Tom D’Agostino deserves a bushel of apples for the drama he’s delivered on Real Housewives of New York.  There was his whirlwind relationship and short-lived marriage to Luann de Lesseps. A marriage that ended just a hair over seven months in.

From the start, it seemed like a question of “when” it would be over rather than “if.”  Particularly after Bethenny Frankel told Luann about photos of Tom kissing another woman just weeks after they got engaged.  After the wedding, it seemed like there was a new story every week on Tom’s alleged shadiness. Then following news of their divorce, the internet went crazy and Tom was branded as a cheater, liar, and all-around bad guy.  Even so, Luann denied that infidelity played a role in their split.

Luann de Lesseps Los Angeles

Money can’t buy you class, but it can buy you a one-way ticket and a home in Beverly Hills. Is Real Housewives of New York OG Luann de Lesseps leaving the Big Apple behind for the west coast?

That’s what she claimed earlier today.

Tinsley Mortimer Questions Barbara Kavovit’s Exchange With Dorinda Medley On Her Blog; “Where Is The Loyalty?”

Tinsley Mortimer has a way of avoiding conflict simply by being overshadowed by the other women on Real Housewives of New YorkSonja Morgan was the only gal who had a real issue with her.  And that stemmed from the fact that she was hosting Tinsley in her home for many months.  Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley are the feuding ladies du jour.  Ramona Singer, Bethenny Frankel, and Barbara Kavovit are simply taking sides.

Anyone can see Tinsley is living her life in a suspended adolescence. So, maybe it doesn’t seem like a fair fight to involve her in anything.  But also, she doesn’t seek out conflict or show emotions in conflict situations.  Sure there’s the occasional screeching about frozen eggs, her dog Bambi, or a one Scott Kluth at the door, but does Tinsley have strong opinions about the group dynamics?  Why yes, actually.  Especially when it comes to defending Dorinda.

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.

Luann de Lesseps - Real Housewives Of New York RHONY

Can you believe that the Real Housewives of New York are in their eleventh season? Four weeks in, and the ladies are not disappointing. It is always great to catch up for the first few weeks and see what everyone has been up to. From Bethenny Frankel’s grief over the loss of Dennis Shields to Luann de Lesseps’ legal woes and second stint in rehab, the New York ladies are doing what they arguably do better than any other franchise-keeping it real, dramatic-and funny.

And that sometimes painful realness is extending to the continuing drama between former BFF’s Luann and Dorinda Medley. An ugly falling out in Cartagena followed by some obnoxious heckling (Jovani, Jovani, Jovani!) by Dorinda at Luann’s cabaret show have left the two at odds. Now, however, Luann is sharing that she might have been a little hasty in her part in having Dorinda excluded from the clam bake at Barbara Kavovit’s home.

Real Housewives Of New York

Oh, I love Real Housewives Of New York! From Tinsley Mortimer slipping into Southern Sorority mode and using the word “hoebag,” to Dorinda Medley accusing Barbara Kavovit of drinking so much of Luann de Lesseps‘ unspiked Kool-Aid she has Type-2 Diabetes, to Ramona Singer getting lectured on being judgmental from the date from hell and just gulping her wine in response. This show is the pinnacle. Take note, Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills!

We left, and open on a cliff-hanger: will Dorinda and Luann make amends? Aided by Bethenny Frankel, at the Paper Magazine party, Luann saunters over. Clearly she’s expecting Dorinda to bow at her feet, cry, and vow to never utter the dreaded word “Jovani” again.
