Dorinda Medley’s Berkshire’s getaway Blue Stone Manor is almost as famous as the RHONY star herself, so Maria Menuonos was thrilled to see her broadcast straight from that location when she featured Dorinda on her Daytime Show Better Together w/ Maria Menounos.
Dorinda and Maria dove right into an amazing conversation, discussing how they’re each coping the readily evolving Global Pandemic, how they’re managing to stay healthy despite a Quarrantine, and of course, most importantly, all of juciy RHONY details we can expect this season!
As a recent guest of her show, Maria of course had to ask about Bethenny Frankel, who recently left the franchise, but who has been doing some impressive philanthropy of her own, courtesy of her charity B Strong. Despite the producers trying to paint otherwise, Dorinda and Bethenny are on excellent terms. “I talk to her almost every day,” offered Medley. “Bethenny and I are really close. One thing about Bethenny, she knows how to activate and get things going…she gets right in there and does it. She’s had some really huge success.”
Of course, Dorinda’s not on perfect terms with every housewife, and we wouldn’t be expecting a good season if that weren’t the case! We’ve seen Dorinda tease some tension between her and Tinsley, and Dorinda was candid about what we can expect this season when Maria asked who Dordina would LEAST like to Quarantine with!: “Yeah, that’s the real question. Probably, Tinsley. Because, we’re just so different. We just run our lives so differently, you know. We’re, we’re totally different women. And it’s not because she’s bad and I’m good, and she’s this. We’re just very different. I like women of like minds.”
In terms of Tinsley’s bestie Leah, things are looking more cordial in that department. “I think she’s great,” offered Medley. “We had a little bit tough of a start. We started off a little rough, I don’t know if was the, you know, this association with her “best-friend”, you know her “new friend” Tinsley, or Tinsley’s “new friend” Leah, and the tattoo’s threw me, because I grew up with a generation where tattoo’s threw all of us. Um, but she is really a great addition. She’s a strong character, she brings a different ingredient to this cake called, The Real Housewives of New York City, and um, she holds her own.”
Maria and Dorinda didn’t ONLY talk Housewives, and for their full conversation, make sure you check out the embedded video, and watch Better Together w/ Maria Menounos every day on YouTube!
