Who’s the fairest new housewife of all? Dorinda Medley – made her first appearance with Andy Cohen on “Watch What Happens Live” on Tuesday night to spill the tea on the “Real Housewives of New York.” One of the repeated topics was Dorinda’s boyfriend, John. When asked about Ramona Singer’s comments that John isn’t good enough and doesn’t really care about her, Dorinda threw some shade Ramona’s way.
“Where does Mario live right now? I don’t think it’s her place to be questioning that. I love Ramona, but you have to allow people to be happy. I’m happy. I’m a grownup and I’m happy with my choices. I think people need to stop.”
We tease because we love – sort of. Andy then read a question from a viewer that asked Dorinda if John was getting a fair portrayal on the show? Dorinda said,
“I don’t think people know John. John is a really great guy. He’s very loyal. He’s very kind. He loves people. He loves men. He loves women. I love him.”
Viewers of RHONY can all agree that John loves women. As for the Luann/Carole quarrel, Dorinda isn’t picking sides. She just wants everyone to be happy. Dorinda was asked what the best and worst thing about being a Housewife was.
“This is the best job in the world,” Dorinda said. “You’re there with all your friends everyday having fun and doing what I’ve been doing for 20-years of my life. Going out, being with girls, going to lunch, going to dinner… the worst part is you have to self-examine a little bit more than I expected. You see yourself on there and you realize maybe you’re not so perfect and maybe you need to tweak a little bit.”
I am so lucky to combine blogging with my guilty pleasure of watching reality TV. I read all the comments and respond to most. Feel free to reach out to me. If you like fiction, I have two published novels: Three Days in Purgatory and A Reason to Run.
