Bethenny Frankel Carole Radziwill Dorinda Medley Let's Discuss: LuAnn DeLesseps Ramona Singer Real Housewives of New York - RHONY Sonja Morgan Tinsley Mortimer

Dorinda Medley Reveals Why the Current RHONY Cast Works

It takes something special to make a Real Housewives cast work, as well as the cast of the Real Housewives of New York, does.

So, what’s the secret to making a Real Housewives cast mesh together onscreen?

Well, Dorinda Medley thinks the current RHONY cast meshes so well together is because they are as authentic on camera as they are off camera.

“They’re the same in real life as they are on TV,” Dorinda revealed to AOL Entertainment. “I think that’s why it works. Clearly, I’m biased, but I think our Housewives [franchise] is the most authentic.”

As for the upcoming tenth season, Dorinda plays coy and says she would like to return for another season along with Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Luann de Lesseps, Carole Radziwill and Tinsley Mortimer.

In fact, Dorinda likens the dynamic of the RHONY cast to another iconic group of New York women.

“We all have something to offer, and it’s all very different, but somehow when we come together it works,” Medley explained. “We’re like that old school ‘Sex and the City.’ We really are. It’s funny because each of us are successful women with a lot going on in our lives, and we’re all characters.”

“What’s more exciting than watching women eat, sleep, breathe and shop in the best city in the world?” she asked. “We live the city. We live it, and filming is so easy because we’re just us.”

While Dorinda played coy about season 10, it’s rumored that the entire season 9 cast will be back.

In fact, Dorinda would love to see former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid join RHONY.

As previously reported, Dorinda told Life & Style that Yolanda would be a “perfect fit” for RHONY and that  “she’d be great on the show.” 

I’m so excited for RHONY to come back. To be honest, RHONY has been our saving grace the last two years. Jersey is rocking this year but last season was whomp-whomp in my opinion.

Is RHONY the most authentic franchise? Do you think the RHONY gets meshes well together? Are you excited for season 10 of RHONY?

  • ~Medusa~

    Once again, I reiterate: Keep RHONY a YoHaFoHa-free Zone. #NoYo

    • Rain

      I’m opposed to ex HW returning , just look at Lydiot !!

      • Kirby

        Good point Mother

        • Rain

          Muahhhhh ??????

      • ~Medusa~

        And Barfenny – She’s a retread, too. I don’t mind a cameo shot. But, not a full time slot. Once they go, they need to be gone.

        • Rain

          Yes exactly ! Let’s hope Camille doesn’t muck up RHOBH !

    • Kirby

      Couldn’t agree with you more , she already ruined one show

      • ~Medusa~

        Exactly!!! I can still picture Yokel padding around in a dirty robe, greasy hair and slits for eyes, glaring at the women for not giving her kudos for breathing.

        • Kirby

          Her SL will be her recovery journey ????

          • ~Medusa~

            Ugh! Yokel should be not seen and not heard.

            • Kirby

              Why doesn’t she follow her daughters around the world ? That would keep her busy ?

              • ~Medusa~

                I thought she was doing that because she moved to NYC to be near them.

                • Kirby

                  Unless she got on their nerves ??? TGIF Medusa ??

                  • ~Medusa~

                    They owe her their career. YoDull joined RHBH to push Gigi as a model. Her twitter was full of Gigi info to her idiotic followers. Once she secured Gigi the top runways & magazine covers, she went to work on the Non-Gigis. YoDull is a Dutch Kris Jenner.

                    • Kirby

                      That’s brilliant ?? Dutch Kris Jenner ????

                    • ~Medusa~

                      YoDull is manipulative, controlling, micro-managing & untiring in pushing her product, errrrr her offspring.

                    • Kirby

                      Truth?? You nailed it

  • ????????Ð??Ð????

    Dodo is da BOMB, especially when she is in Slurinda mode. I will be very unhappy if she ever leaves the franchise. IMHO, she is one of the best HW’s castings, evah!! CLIPPPPP

    • michers

      She does make me laugh ! Where she falls short with me , is going in on others when she does very much have her Slurinda side. You can’t condemn others when you drink others under the table lol and date John ….

      • Rain

        michers ??

        • michers

          Hey there !!! Thanks for the flower and unicorn 🙂

          • Rain

            That’s because you’re a beautiful rose and as rare as a unicorn ???

            • michers

              Awww ! XO, thanks pretty

    • Rain

      ??? that’s what Kirby promised me , that I will LOVE Dorinda ?

      • ????????Ð??Ð????

        She’s the best. I hope you will like her……fingers crossed Rainy!

    • ~Medusa~

      “How am I doing? Not well, Bitch!”

      • ????????Ð??Ð????

        I was on the floor dying when she said it and I think she had Candace Bushnell eating out of the palm of her hands. She was mesmerized by Dodo! LOL https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e1bb425e2ccbeea2687bfb565edfbaf6f01e9f7ce9a6291618d78aaf05f4a1bb.gif

        • ~Medusa~

          That was incredible. Wasn’t that fitting for Candace Bushnell to be Luann’s guest???

          • ????????Ð??Ð????

            Absolute perfection!!

      • Kirby

        ???? so good

        • ~Medusa~

          It is my favorite line ever uttered by any hw.

          • Kirby

            It’s up there ???? She’s so fun and unrehearsed and always a hoot

      • Lea

        How about the, “I made it nice!” (how do we add gifs here?) I LOVED that one.

    • Kirby

      TRUTH !! ????????Dorinda for life ?

      • ????????Ð??Ð????

        I’m so glad you like Dodo too Kirbs!!

        • Kirby

          Course bae! That’s why we are baes ??

  • Danielle Coppack

    Love RHONY. My current fave of all the franchises (the earlier seasons of ATL used to be my faves, but the last 2 or 3 NY seasons have been awesome).

  • michers

    IDK… Im kind of queasy from the back stabbing back and forth , loudmouthing name calling act, ya know? Beth is too much . She throws things off and its unnecessary. Lu is quite conveniently forgetful one as well and plays victim too much. That woman has been shady as all get out to people she actually calls friend .. LOL

    • Lea

      Good points. But Lu can no longer be in denial about her ex, so no more ‘gloating on the boat.’ ha

  • Cin

    Love Dorinda.

  • Kirby

    I would like to see Lu invite a friend to join the show ????

    • ????????Ð??Ð????

      I’d like to see Lu dis-invite FrankelJaw off the show. LOL??

      • ~Medusa~

        I want B Frankelstein & raMORON to go on 3 hour cruise to nowhere and not return.

        • ????????Ð??Ð????
          • ~Medusa~

            Abso-f*cking-lutely!!!!

            • ????????Ð??Ð????

              Yippee!!

          • Kirby

            Best gifs always bae

            • ????????Ð??Ð????

              Awww, thank you bae!

        • Kirby

          They can go on a ‘journey ‘ with Yo-yo ?

          • ~Medusa~

            That would be fine with me. I can picture them in a far flung location; all lined up side by side on their own gurneys, getting fruit juice transfusions, in hopes of it curing their personality disorders.

            • Kirby

              And coffee enemas and cayenne juice ??

      • Kirby

        Bethenny is number 2 at Bravo , second only to Andy ??? FrankelJaw is right

        • ????????Ð??Ð????

          Grrrrrrrr……

          • Kirby

            Trust me not a fan of hers ?

  • samael

    I was all ready for a new cast!

    for two seasons RHNY humped the crap outta Lu’s engagement/wedding and now divorce..no one had a clear storyline.

    – Bitchenny refused to discuss her own life on a reality show- about her life!
    – Carole showed signs of life finally…reacting to election
    – Sonja/Ramona continued the “I dated the whore” story

    Sux that Andy is into this crew – complete recast should have happened!

    Pellet Butt VS Bitchenny

    Bitchenny would mutilate her within 5 minutes…next

    • michers

      Bitchenny would mutilate herself verbally if there were none left to talk to lol

      • samael

        mich!!

        “talk”

        she got fired cuz no one wanted to watch just her!

        • michers

          Buzzkill !

          • samael

            c’est moi!

    • bits

      Bet ol FACE OF FIBROIDS will be talking non-stop about her charity work this season. Some one from another board thinks she is still helping PR I don’t think she is.

  • Khipp

    Having Yoliar on NY would be a total disaster IMO. I can’t see her mixing successfully with any of the current cast. If Bravo wants to add another Housewife bring back Jill. Tho not a fan she’s interesting, and she is New York, unlike the Lemon Drop California kid).

    Love me some Dorinda.

    • samael

      Pellet butt would only have ONE thing in common with RHNY..she is not married! She wouldn’t be a good fit for sure..

      • Khipp

        The NY cast is tough. They wouldn’t tolerate this, just for attention…

        https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/592baa0844d1c7e136d954717da8e96b54228f038f6a306d56a893766d451484.jpg

        • samael

          you got that right!! I said similar up thread!

      • ~Medusa~

        “Pellet butt” – LOLOLOL – That’s a good one for YoDull.

        • samael

          hey Medusa

          yeah she won that moniker after she kept getting annoyed with LVP at the reunion..LVP said she felt that Pellet Butts behavior may be related to menopause…pellet butt tried to jut ignore LVP..but lvp said it again, finally pellet butt confessed that she will not have that reaction to menopause, cuz she got pellets injected in her butt!

          such ego..so vain

          • ~Medusa~

            Oh, wow!!! I missed that exchange. Why do these fools think they can avoid the natural aging process. Even if they cover it up with cosmetic surgery, they can’t alter their insides. Menopause isn’t a rosy time. But, it isn’t the end of the world either. It gives a great excuse for many flaws. They should embrace it as their “get out of sticky situations card”.

            • samael

              That is a good outlook Medusa.

    • SB artist

      I agree. Yolanda was rude and condescending on Project Runway to the designers. Her true colors came out. I have NEVER seen a guest judge speak to the contestants like that.

      • Khipp

        SB, I didn’t see her on Project Runway, but I can imagine. She’s just nasty.

  • Boo

    Can’t wait for the return of NY, it’s my absolute favorite. Best in the franchise in my opinion.

    • Rain

      I’m a new watcher ?

      • Boo

        Yay, I think you’ll enjoy it hun, of course, I’m a bit biased. Haha
        But it is authentic and I like the whole cast to some extent, I love me a tipsy Dorinda, she’s hilarious. xoxo

        • Rain

          It’s been hard breaking it in to be honest but I’m sticking with it ??

          • Boo

            Everyone has their favorites, and it’s hard to break into new franchise, at least for me too.
            I do hope you’ll stick with it hunny bunny, more to gossip about. xx

        • Lea

          Dorinda is soooo good! Not rehearsed at all and great style.

          • Boo

            I totally agree Lea, Dorinda’s fabulous!!

      • DindiSue

        You will love it—

      • Lea

        New York is my favorite too of them all. They seem to really enjoy their trips together, issues don’t last too long etc.

        • Rain

          I’ll join the party soon ?????

        • ????????Ð??Ð????

          Mine as well. They don’t dwell on things keep it moving. A huge plus in the world of HW’s.

          • ~Medusa~

            Most of them don’t dwell. B Frankelstein chews on any slight as if it’s the marrow bone.

            • ????????Ð??Ð????

              Yes, with the one exception of FrankeJaw. Personally, I don’t think of her as part of the cast. She’s like the annoying boss who won’t go away and let their employees have a good time.

              • ~Medusa~

                That’s a good depiction of Barfenny’s “role”. Her oppressive presence brings down the curve for the rest of them (including raMORON, who just wants to have fun.)

                • ????????Ð??Ð????

                  LOL RaMoron who just wants dick!

                  • Rain

                    Well hand her that bag then ?

                    • ????????Ð??Ð????

                      LMBO

              • Lea

                Some great jokes here! FiddleDeeDee, “She’s like the annoying boss who won’t go away and let their employees have a good time.” and Rain, “Well hand her that bag then.” hahahahaha

                • ????????Ð??Ð????

                  Hahaha, thanks Lea!! Good to see you…

      • ????????Ð??Ð????
  • Stuart Cooper

    Totally agree with Dorinda. The current RHONY cast works really well.

    • Rain

      Stuart ??????luv u babe

      • Stuart Cooper

        ?if it’s not broke then don’t fix it.
