During this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of New York, a new drama emerged: Nutcracker-gate.
However, when the Nutcracker arrived at Bethenny’s apartment she jumped for joy and thanked everyone who played a part in obtaining the gift except for Dorinda.
While many felt Bethenny didn’t give Dorinda the credit she deserved for tracking down such a rare find Bethenny doesn’t see it that way.
In her latest Bravo blog, Bethenny explains why Dorinda doesn’t deserve all the credit for the find.
“Well, we survived the Berkshires…barely. I’m glad we were able to have some laughs at the end of the night and start fresh the next day.
I absolutely love the holidays and was so excited that “Santa” came through for my daughter this Christmas with that incredible Nutcracker. This is the year when kids in her class begin saying that there is no Santa and the parents are the ones hiding the gifts, so I wanted to go out of my way to find something special. I mean that concept is ludicrous after all. Can you imagine parents hiding gifts? It’s, frankly, preposterous.
My daughter and I saw this nutcracker in the Hamptons and within five minutes, it was sold. Thus began the quest. I mean her nickname is “peanut.”
I am grateful to Dorinda for connecting me with that lovely gentleman Michael via group text. He was incredible. He hunted the piece down in Worcester, MA, and I purchased it immediately. He drove four hours to pick it up and deliver it to me personally. He saved Christmas, which is why I was so excited and focused my attention on him. Feel free to ask @Mikeharrisonart any questions about the origin of that nutcracker.”
Meanwhile, some were confused about Dorinda’s role in finding the Nutcracker as many believed she purchased the item for Bethenny’s daughter however clearly that’s not the case.
Dorinda clarified her role in finding the Nutcracker on Twitter and made it clear that while she did help track it down she didn’t actually purchase the item for B.
I’m very interested to hear Dorinda’s side of Nutcracker-gate in her blog this week. I think Bethenny should have been praising Dorinda a little bit more. If it weren’t for Dorinda’s contacts said Nutcracker wouldn’t be sitting in Bethenny’s living room. It’s a shame that Bethenny can’t seem to celebrate the good things her co-stars do even when it benefits her.
Thoughts on Nutcracker-gate? Did Bethenny give Dorinda the credit she deserved? Should Bethenny have thanked Dorinda more? Is Bethenny downplaying Dorinda’s role in locating the nutcracker? Sound off below!
