This season on RHONY it was a shock to everyone when Bethenny Frankel exposed Dorinda Medley and her boyfriend John Mahdessian’s cocaine use. While Bethenny didn’t directly say they were “snorting cocaine,” everyone knew what she meant with her “lines and rails” comments!
Reformed party girl Sonja Morgan then confirmed (about Dorinda) that, “Everyone knows you do drugs,” and this really upset Dorinda. The single mom furiously denied the accusations, but it’s now out in the Bravo universe, and everyone is talking about it!
A RHONY insider recently dished that Dorinda is “furious” that “once again” these accusations were brought up! Furthermore, “Dorinda wants to build her brand, and this isn’t the reputation she wants. These women just like to attack any way they can.”
The source also suggested that because of the drama with John, she has gone back and forth about returning to RHONY all season long! “Dorinda went back and forth but she’s definitely coming back next season. She’s not going anywhere,” the insider confirmed.
Meanwhile, on twitter Bethenny continued to defend her decision to expose Dorinda’s drug use on RHONY, and even defended Sonja Morgan; calling it “a joke” that she takes heat in the media for being a party girl!
We already told you that Bethenny signed a 3-year RHONY contract, and I’m guessing Dorinda’s drug use will come up again on season 9! Hannah is Dorinda’s young-adult daughter, and while I’m sure she knows what her mom does, and doesn’t do; it can’t be easy for her to handle the negative press!
Dorinda was a phenomenal addition to RHONY, as was her newbie BFF Jules Wainstein; Season 8 was so good I think Bravo can keep the cast the same for season 9!
