Real Housewives of New York City

Bethenny Frankel

After two seasons on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Denise Richards announced her exit from the show. And who could blame her for saying goodbye? Yes, she was the highest-paid Real Housewife in history. She became more relevant than ever before, but to Denise, nothing was worth all of the drama she endured.

Did she hook up with Brandi Glanville? That’s what her former co-stars wanted her to admit all season long, blatantly disregarding the fact that they outted a married woman. They pushed Denise to expose her private life at every event even though all of them kept major things to themselves (lawsuits on lawsuits on lawsuits). What did we ever see from any of them other than promoting their various projects and wearing some hideous caftans?

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.

No one can deny that Season 12 of Real Housewives of New York was a rough one for Dorinda Medley. I love Dorinda, but her explosive outbursts really aggravated me this season. What happened to the fun Dorinda and her sassy one-liners?

Her favorite target this season was RHONY co-star Tinsley Mortimer. Dorinda called out Tinsley for not being transparent about her life and her relationship with Chicago businessman Scott Kluth.

Kate Chastain slams Luann and Stassi

Kate Chastain, love her or hate her, is an iconic Bravo-lebrity. Before her time on Below Deck she was also a Bravo super-fan! And that is why so many love her. She dishes her real feelings towards all the other Bravo-lebs she meets.

Tragically, Kate is leaving Below Deck. For those  of you who stan, don’t worry, shes got her own new show on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM channel! She’s also teased being back on our screens in the future. For those of you who can’t stand her, it’s been a tough summer, let’s at least enjoy the deep shade she brings, even if it’s off screen.

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.

It was so difficult to watch Dorinda Medley on Real Housewives of New York this season. Watching her go after Tinsley Mortimer many times over, taking low blow after low blow just wasn’t entertaining. It was cruel and unnecessary.

During one scene this season, Tinsley revealed that she was moving to Chicago (i.e. leaving the show). In response Dorinda said, “I’ve got a turkey baster — maybe try and have a baby.” How crass. In response, Tinsley told her, “You just look like an evil, mean person.” True. No wonder she got fired, I mean “left the show.” She just crossed so many lines.

Real Housewives Of New York Dorinda Medley

There’s always a bit of mystery when it comes to a Real Housewife’s finances. Yes, they’re cast members on a hit reality TV show, which should bring in some money. Sure, there are Instagram sponsorships, but how much money can one person net when 727 other reality TV stars are schilling the same subscription box and hair vitamins?

That’s why it makes sense to leverage the platform and start a business. However, Dorinda Medley didn’t do that during her time on Real Housewives of New York. Yeah, she slapped her catchphrases on merchandise, but she didn’t build anything close to a Skinny Girl-esque empire. At least she didn’t have rent to pay. Yep, that’s right, apparently, she didn’t have to pay for her apartment thanks to her “fame” from being on the show.

Tiger Woods’ Former Mistress Rachel Uchitel On Short List To Replace Dorinda Medley On Real Housewives Of New York; She’s Already Been Linked To Harry Dubin

Now that Dorinda Medley is gone from Real Housewives of New York, fans already want to know who’s replacing her. Well, that and they want to know if anyone else got fired.

Apparently, a possible addition to the cast is someone who is very familiar with scandal, Rachel Uchitel, one of the many women who was a mistress to Tiger Woods. What a claim to fame.
