These behind the scenes incidents explain the harsh attitude and behavior Dorinda has exhibited towards Tinsley throughout season 12.
According to Elyse, Tinsley “poked” Dorinda several times during the filming of season 12.
“A lot of the audience didn’t see Tinsley poking [Dorinda],” Elyse revealed on Heather McDonald’s Juicy Scoop podcast.
Adding that the hate Dorinda has received this season isn’t entirely deserved.
“I think Dorinda has gotten an incredible amount of hate that is not one hundred percent deserved,” Elyse insisted.
Elyse claims that Tinsley was caught “mocking” Dorinda after she opened up about mourning her late husband Richard Medley and her split from longtime boyfriend, John Mahdessian.
“I just kept thinking, ‘Oh Tinsley, please stop. This is not going to go well for you.’ But people, for some reason, chose to ignore that,” Elyse said.
” If Tinsley called Dorinda right now and needed her advice for something, Dorinda would be there for her,” Elyse insisted.
She also says that Dorinda knows that some of her anger was misdirected at Tinsley.
“I still believe Dorinda is a good soul, and I think she probably realizes that she was going through a lot at the time and that some of the anger was misdirected,” she added.
The Real Housewives of New York airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET.
Thoughts on Elyse’s comments? Do you think the criticism Dorinda is getting is unfair?
