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.
Dorinda Medley is not about to make it nice with anyone attacking The Real Housewives of New York City.
Last week, Queer Eye star Bobby Berk made headlines after accusing one of the ‘Wives of stealing from his store back in the day. In a new interview, Dorinda addressed the drama, and it turns out she’s not a huge fan of someone making vague accusations against any of her fellow RHONY stars.
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.
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.
Wow, so much has happened in just one week in the Below Deck universe! Last week, Pete Hunziker was gearing up to be the lead deckhand we all love to hate because of his condescending, misogynistic attitude on board The Wellington. This week, Pete’s been terminated from Below Deck Mediterranean altogether because of a vilely racist social media post.
For the remainder of the season, Bravo and 51 Minds, the show’s production company, will be editing around Pete to remove him from as much footage as possible. Of course, there’s wasn’t enough turnaround time to re-edit this week’s episode, so it will be interesting to see when the lead deckhand starts disappearing from the charter season. However, for the time being, we’ll still include Pete in our recaps. That is, with the context that we’ll soon be seeing the last of him.
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.
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.
The last time fans heard the Real Housewives of New York talk politics, it was during the fallout of the 2016 presidential election. Carole Radziwill took it especially hard. She threw a party on election night in order to celebrate the first female elected president but ended up experiencing the 5 stages of grief instead.
Fast forward to the next major political and current events and once again, the ladies of RHONY are sharing their thoughts. Specifically Leah McSweeney and the newly-relocated Tinsley Mortimer. Leah’s political leanings may be easy to predict. Her “Occupy the Hamptons,” as Sonja Morgan called it, meltdown was quite spectacle. Urban anarchism suites Leah. But what do we know about Tinsley and her thoughts on governance?
