The second half of Real Housewives of New York Season 12 has some major changes in store for fans. RHONY viewers have watched Dorinda Medley attack Tinsley Mortimer all season. Dorinda accused Tinsley of secretly dating Tinsley’s ex, Scott Kluth, and lying to the ladies about it. Dorinda also claimed that Tinsley didn’t share her real life with her co-stars.
Then Tinsley and Dorinda blocked each other on Instagram. Now Dorinda is left without a punching bag because Tinsley announced on the show that she was leaving RHONY to move in with Scott in Chicago. Maybe Dorinda should go take boxing lessons at the gym Leah McSweeney goes to? Just saying.
Leah McSweeney may be new to Real Housewives of New York, but she can certainly dish out the drama. Leah, who had been sober for a while, went to Ramona Singer’s Hamptons home, and decided to drink. The result? Leah, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer ended up topless, and very tipsy, in the pool. A naked Leah also hurled Ramona’s pool-side tiki torches like javelins. It was impressive!
When Ramona invited the RHONY gang to Newport, Rhode Island for a girls’ trip, Leah begged to invite her sister, Sarah McSweeney. When Ramona tried to withdraw the invitation, a drunken Leah went on a rampage until Ramona relented.
We all know how much Ramona Singer loves to share her life on Instagram and remind us all of how “ageless” she looks. She quarantined in Boca Raton, Florida with her daughter Avery Singer and ex-husband Mario Singer. She documented the meals they made, the exercises they did, the outfits they dressed up in, just having the most fun in quarantine.
Now, she’s back in New York City and the reported coronavirus cases are surging in Florida. Did she quarantine for 14 days just to be cautious? Not according to Instagram. And, now, her Real Housewives of New York co-star Leah McSweeney is calling her out for her behavior. Ramona has bragged a million times over about how she’s a mother figure to Leah, but who’s mothering who now, Ramona?
This story has been circulating all weekend, but some new details have come to light. But, let’s take it from the top for anyone who needs to catch up. Queer Eye star Bobby Berk is calling out a Real Housewives of New York cast member for bad behavior.
He accuses the woman of stealing from him before he became a reality star himself. He doesn’t name the New York Housewife who did him wrong, but he did share a lot of details that help narrow down the possibilities.
The Real Housewives OG’s are an endangered species at this point. We only have a few left. The OG cast members who are still on TV have been through so much right before our eyes. When we first met Ramona Singer on Real Housewives of New York, she was constantly bragging about how hot and heavy and she and Mario Singer were. Then, she found out he was cheating on her in the press. They divorced. And, now, she’s all about that dating scene and being hot at sixty. Oh, and she and Mario quarantined together in Florida.
We’ve seen her go through a lot of different phases in life, but recently, she’s just been a bit more reasonable than she used to be. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all the time. Who could forget Ramona and Sonja Morgan ditching the cast in Rhode Island to talk to “hot” guys at the bar instead of going to dinner? Before that she ditched her own Hampton house to look for more “hot” guys. Wait. What was I saying again? Oh, yeah, Ramona is a tiny bit more reasonable than she used to be. Here and there she really is the voice of reason with some solid anecdotes and advice. Her fellow OG Luann de Lesseps has certainly noticed.
It’s tough to join the Real Housewives of New York cast. The ladies hazed Tinsley Mortimer right up until she quit the show. They never gave Barbara Kavovit a chance. Surprisingly, they’ve embraced Leah McSweeney, torch/ravioli throwing, and all. But, then there’s Elyse Slaine. We never got a proper introduction. She didn’t get to share any of her backstory. All we know is that she’s Ramona Singer’s friend who’s hanging around a lot.
When Luann de Lesseps took her “first sip of alcohol” this season, Elyse was the only one who questioned her for doing so, given her past legal issues. Everyone ignored her, but Luann didn’t forget about Elyse chiming in.
On this week’s episode of Real Housewives of New York we *sort* of got a fairy tale ending and send off for the beloved Tinsley Mortimer. Of course, any happiness this woman experiences is immediately crushed by the ever-bitter Dorinda Medley. (By the way, if anyone cares, I am still looking for answers as to why Dorinda treats Tinsley this way. Comment below!). Ramona Singer has even spoken out recently claiming Dorinda needs anger management classes .
Despite no longer being on the show, Dorinda has had a hard time keeping Tinsley’s name out of her mouth. She has recently made claims that Tinsley doesn’t own anything. Um. Tinsley and fiance Scott Kluth donated $20k to a RHONY editor whose family experienced a Coronavirus death. Who cares what she owns? She’s spending money right, regardless of whose it is. Dorinda also claims that Tinsley blocked her on Instagram. Well, even after riding her limo off into the Chicago sunset Tinsley has returned to a recent quarantine edition of Watch What Happens Live with castmate Leah McSweeny where she addresses these claims.
Dorinda Medley must have felt vindicated by Tinsley Mortimer’s sudden departure from the Real Housewives of New York to get serious with Scott Kluth. Of course Scott and Tinsley have history. But Tinsley denied having anything to do with Scott all season then left for Chicago so quickly that she missed Luann de Lesseps halloween party.
What does this have to do with Dorinda? Logically, nothing. But Dorinda has made Tinsley’s relationship with Scott a bargaining tool on authenticity. Her supposed lack of transparency triggered Dorinda to the point that she couldn’t even maintain a polite demeanor with Tinsley. But just because Tinsley is out of Dorinda’s physical reach, doesn’t mean that they can’t take jabs at each other thanks to Twitter.
