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.

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.

Luann de Lesseps Says Real Housewives Don’t Respect Tinsley Mortimer Because She Doesn’t Stand Up For Herself; Describes Tinsley As “Very Insecure”

It was been so frustrating to watch Dorinda Medley mistreat Tinsley Mortimer on Real Housewives of New York. When it comes down to it, Dorinda actually had a valid point. Tinsley just didn’t share a lot about her life when she was literally paid to do so. However, Dorinda went way too far with her digs and we all forgot that Dorinda made a little bit of sense, at first.

Now, Tinsley is done with the show, living her best life in a Chicago highrise with Scott Kluth. It will be interesting to see how the ladies fare in the second half of the season when the show returns in July.

Real Housewives Of New York Tinsley Mortimer

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.

Real Housewives Of New York Dorinda Medley

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.

How’s Dorinda Medley‘s relationship with Ramona Singer doing? Apparently not well, bitch! Things between the two have seemed mostly amicable this season on The Real Housewives of New York City, but that appears to have changed since filming wrapped.

During last week’s episode, Dorinda took to social media to relentlessly attack the RHONY OG for her narcissistic behavior.

Real Housewives Of New York Ramona Singer

By now, it’s old news that Tinsley Mortimer ditched the Real Housewives of New York for a shot at happily ever after with Scott Kluth.  So the footage from the second part of the season is lacking in any high pitch frequencies.  There is, however, no shortage of drama and multi-layered conflicts.

The issues within the group are not new.  There is some subtle foreshadowing but also a clear indication as to where alliances were forming.  The ladies are also due at Dorinda Medley’s Berkshires estate this season.  Maybe Dorinda’s home was built on some sort of energy field because there is always massive drama there.  Part two of the season also includes a fun, tropical getaway during which Ramona Singer hails the return of Turtle Time and Luann de Lesseps mounts a camel again.

Real Housewives Of New York Tinsley Mortimer

Well, everything stayed the same on Real Housewives Of New York except for one little fairy, who reclaimed her light, and flew away to the hope of a giant walk-in closet with a promising sparkle in her eye. That’s right, Tinsley Mortimer has left the building. Specifically, she’s left the long-term hotel she was living in.

In secret Tinsley went on an overnight rendezvous to visit Scott Kluth. Then she decided, on a whim, to return to NY, pack her stuff and move to Chicago! It was now or never. It was that or be looking down the barrel of turning into either Ramona Singer or Dorinda Medley. Tinsley does not need to learn her lesson twice as to what happens when you choose Real Housewives Of New York over being a real and actual housewife. She doesn’t want to be crying over eggs for the rest of her life!
