Tinsley Mortimer

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.

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.

Andy Cohen Dorinda Medley

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.

Constantine Maroulis Tinsley Mortimer

During a recent episode of Real Housewives of New York, Luann de Lesseps showed Dorinda Medley photos of an “American Idol winner” on her phone, who was set to appear in Lu’s cabaret. His name was bleeped out during the conversation, but in addition to pointing out how hot she thinks he is, Lu said that he dated Tinsley Mortimer.

Ramona Singer chimed in that she dated him too, which is shocking since Ramona never fesses up to dating anyone specifically…even though she’s always bragging about double-booking dates, which just makes zero sense. It took fans virtually no time to figure out that the ladies were talking about Constantine Maroulis, who didn’t actually win American Idol. However, he did get in sixth place during season 4.

Sonja Morgan Real Housewives Of New York

The Mexico trip is almost over, but the Real Housewives of New York are probably happy about that. The trip has seen so much chaos and turbulence in the group. From the initial issue between Ramona Singer and Leah McSweeney to the renewed focus on Dorinda Medley’s anger, it’s been a journey. On last week’s Real Housewives of New York episode, Ramona tried confronting Dorinda, and it went horribly wrong.

Ramona might be one of the worst possible people to be dishing out life advice. She treats people just as badly most of the time. Another thing coming up soon is Sonja Morgan’s big fashion event at Century 21. After so many years of claiming to be working on so many things, this might actually happen. Cross your fingers folks, and hope Sonja pulls through. If she has another failed business, her friends might lose hope for her forever.

Leah McSweeney Ramona Singer

This season of Real Housewives of New York has been a journey in more ways than one. To start, there’s the whole pandemic that’s altered filming. We’ve also known for a long time that former favorite, Tinsley Mortimer was going to leave us. What I don’t think anyone expected was the love that Leah McSweeney would garner. She’s been touted as one of the best new housewives ever. Not an easy feat!

Of course, Ramona Singer hasn’t made Leah’s entry easy. This week’s episode we watched her call Leah an “untamed horse” because she’s single and made out with a man. Yea, I don’t get it. I guess that’s a light offense, though. Don’t forget she also outed Leah’s bipolar disorder this season. Then there’s the time she implied Leah has a drinking problem on par with the rest of the cast. Through all of that, Leah still has some respect for the Ramona-coaster.

More drunken Mexico antics can be expected on this new episode of The Real Housewives of New York. SO. MUCH. DRINKING. All season has felt like the longest bender ever. Did Bethenny Frankel really keep these women in check that much? However, maybe things will change for Sonja Morgan now that she stopped taking her “water pills”. That excuse seems a little weak, but maybe it will actually work.

Leah McSweeney and Corona Ramona Singer have been at odds for weeks, and it might be a lost cause. They’re fundamentally different. Everything they stand for is so opposite. One actually cares about people. The other does whatever she can to make people look and feel lesser than they are. You do the math to figure out who is who. Ramona has no clue how to handle someone like Leah, and it’s the perfect match made in hell for her. 

Tinsley Mortimer

The news recently broke that the Real Housewives of New York cast will gather with Andy Cohen to film the Season 12 reunion in person in Long Island. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast just filmed their reunion, but it was via zoom, which makes sense since Andy is based in New York.

Elyse Slaine confirmed that she will not be a part of the taping, but fans have been wondering if Tinsley Mortimer will be there in person. She left the season halfway through to move to Chicago, so it was assumed she would show up virtually. However, it has been reported that Tinsley is already back in the Big Apple, following quarantine guidelines before the reunion.
