The Real Housewives of New York had a wild season! Dorinda Medley and Luann De Lesseps were close friends but this season of the RHONY we saw them go at it, and they currently are not on the best of terms. Recently Dorinda attended BravoTV.com’s newest web series, Adulting by Bravo, and told some advice on purging toxic people from your life. According to People, Medley explained that she decides which friendships need to go when “the after-relationship starts to occupy you more than the actual relationship you’re having.” Many have been wondering if Dorinda and Luann are going to make up or not.
Dorinda reflects on the relationships in her life. She added, “I always say, how do I feel five minutes after I walk away from the person? Do I feel good? Do I feel better about myself? Do I feel loved? Do I feel confident. Or am I doing one of these, ‘Why’d she say that? Well, that didn’t make me feel good?'” When it comes to dealing with toxic friend, Dorinda said, “If they’re an acquaintance, you sort of just say right there, ‘What are you doing?’ But if it’s someone you’ve invested time in and you value and you want to keep in your life, sit them down and say, ‘Hey, is something going on?'”
This season on the RHONY, Dorinda and Luann had problems when Luann was newly sober and questioned Dorinda’s drinking during a vacation with the ladies in Cartagena, Colombia. Then Dorinda reacted and was mocking Luann about her arrest and trip to rehab. Dorinda did apologize afterward, but they fought during the finale because Luann didn’t invite Dorinda’s boyfriend to her cabaret show. This didn’t sit well with Dorinda, to say the least. Dorinda made comments during the reunion that upset Luann and hurt her feelings. Luann previously said of her feud with Dorinda, “What she said hurts still. I’m just trying to process it and get over it right now. I’m not ready to take the Band-Aid off. I’m still scarred from it.” However; Luann ultimately wants to make up with Dorinda. The two ladies have a lot of history! Luann explained, “I do want to make up with her. I love Dorinda. We’ve known each other for a long time. I’m sure we’ll come to a good decision.”
Dorinda thinks that repairing the friendship will take time She said, “People tend to treat other people in their lives better than they treat themselves. You just have to learn in life to take care of yourself. You’re #1. And why would you want to have something toxic?”
I do think that Dorinda and Luann will eventually kiss and make up. They both just need some space, and time to themselves right now. They have a long history and a lot of memories together. I think they will move past the hurt they are feeling. Time heals all wounds. Last season was epic, I’m already excited for the new season!
Do you think Dorinda and Luann will reconcile?! Thoughts on their feud/friendship? What did you think of this season of the RHONY? Sound off below!
