Real Housewives of New York is coming off a pretty uneventful season. Aside from partying and drinking, we couldn’t point to much of a storyline outside of Dorinda Medley attacking Tinsley Mortimer. Oh and the revelation that Sonja Morgan doesn’t shave her p**sy. Mark my words, a drunken Sonja randomly yelling about her vag in the midst of a perfectly respectable party will go down in housewives history.

Let’s just say the offseason was way more interesting than the season itself thanks to major cast shakeups. Bethenny Frankel’s exit left a big hole in the cast and opened the door for newbie, Leah McSweeney. Love her or hate her, we have to admit that she brought it. Tiki torches are still shook. Also, Tinsley left the show mid-season to pursue her fairy tale with on-again-off-again boyfriend Scott Kluth. Dorinda was fired once the season was over.

Leah McSweeney Real Housewives Of New York

Despite a season of The Real Housewives of New York that felt unfocused and fueled by alcohol, this reunion is DELIVERING. All of the ladies have brought their A game for the first in person reunion in months. Dorinda Medley has been in the hot seat from the beginning because of her drinking and anger issues. The way she’s gone after Tinsley Mortimer has been jarring to say the least. What did this girl ever do to her?

Leah McSweeney is fed up with Ramona Singer. She can’t handle the double standards anymore. NEITHER CAN WE LEAH. We understand. The way Ramona has come for Leah at every turn about things she ignores in others is gross. What’s the difference? Please tell everyone Ramona. The world is all ears. It’s Dorinda’s final season, but shouldn’t it be Ramona’s as well?

Andy Cohen Dorinda Medley

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.

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.

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.
