Dorinda Medley The Real Housewives of New York - RHONY

Dorinda Medley Opens Up About Her Toughest RHONY Moment, Bethenny Frankel & Luann De Lesseps Bonding, The Jovani Situation, Plus The New Season!

Make it nice!

The Real Housewives of New York is back! Life in the Big Apple has returned. Dorinda Medley recently joined Andy Cohen for an episode of Watch What Happens Live to discuss everything regarding this season. Dorinda commented about the whole Jovani situation at Countess and Friends, Bethenny Frankel and Luann De Lesseps bonding over the summer, as well as the new season of the RHONY.

For starters, does Dorinda still not think she was heckling Luann during her cabaret show when she was yelling, “Jovani!” The answer is no, Dorinda says she was not. Dorinda explained, “No I don’t think I was. And by the way, I sat by someone from People magazine who sat by me and said, ‘You weren’t.'” Has she gone to another one of Lu’s shows since? Yes and no. Dorinda said, “Well, we go on the show during the season. But independently, no.”

What has been Dorinda’s toughest moment on the show to watch back? She answered, “I think the one last year with Bethenny, in Puerto Rico. That was the toughest. We worked through it, but by the way I always say about the Housewives – it’s therapy. You learn tremendously from it and you grow. Otherwise you’ll be too upset all the time.”

Why have Bethenny Frankel and Luann De Lesseps bonded on the show? Has this changed Dorinda’s relationship with new friend of the wives, Barbara Kavovit? Dorinda explained, “Listen, I’m not exclusive like that. You can be friends with whomever you want. I have a lot of friends that don’t cross over. What I didn’t understand is why she was acting like such an interloper, why was she trying to butt in on everything? It had nothing to do with her.”

Over the summer Bethenny and Luann really bonded. Why does Dorinda think that is? She explained, “I think that was a cause and effect. I think, she you know, basically saved her life, more or less. And then she felt responsible for her.” Although Bethenny and Luann are bonding, Lu has said that this season she fights with Bethenny a lot. Luann also noted that there are a lot of shifts in alliances and friendships this season.

I’m so happy that the RHONY is back! Woot woot!
