Two days ago my life got flipped, turned upside down when Dorinda Medley was fired from The Real Housewives of New York. Sources told Page Six she got canned because she became a “mean drunk” who refused to admit her behavior was wrong. And, sure, many of our greatest Housewives are permanently soused d-bags, but Dorinda’s journey got… dark. Like, darker than Countess Luann de Lesseps assaulting the cops in Palm Beach. So goodbye to Dorinda.
And a maybe hello to Rachel Uchitel! Apparently “NYC socialite” Rachel was on the shortlist to join RHONY last year, but producers went for Leah McSweeney instead (good call). But now that Dorinda’s been axed, Page Six’s insiders are saying there’s a “renewed effort” to get Rachel on the show.
Today I woke up to a shocking text from a dear friend that hit me like a lightning bolt: Dorinda Medley announced she’s leaving The Real Housewives of New York after six seasons. I know. You’ll always remember where you were when you heard the news. “So, the toilet?”, replied 80% of readers. Andy Cohen confirmed her exit to Page Six. The Daily Mail claims she was sacked, while Dorinda’s Instagram post is pretty vague. I’m guessing she was fired, since Real Housewives rarely leave of their own accord. Being paid six figures a year to talk shit about your “friends” and get wasted at fancy events? Come on, it’s the dream.
Bethenny Frankel broke a billion hearts (okay, just mine) when she left The Real Housewives of New York City, and now she’s traded in battling dumpster fire humans to battling actual fires.
Well, it looks like The Real Housewives of New York City is going to get a little less shrieker. I said “a little“! Because Bethenny Frankel broke the skinny girl hearts of all RHoNYC fans by leaving that bitch for a second time.
Real Housewives of New York City‘s very own cabaret crooner Luann De Lesseps was arrested two years ago for drunkenly attacking a cop in Palm Beach. She agreed to go to help to avoid some jail time. She was in rehab for all of three weeks before going back to singing (can you call it that?) while shimmying in glitter.
Luann was put on probation, and recently got caught violating her probation by admitting to drinking alcohol after one of her cabaret shows in Chicago. That probation violation almost made her the Roxie understudy in a jail house production of Chicago, but a judge took pity on her.
Bethenny Frankel found a rather unconventional way to say she has a new boyfriend. The Real Housewives Of New York City OG has been spotted around Boston lately locking lips with Paul Bernon, this daddy of a real estate developer who also is a film producer. Those two have kept quiet on what it is they’re doing together, but Bethenny had a scary-sounding health scare involving a deadly fish allergy. Paul saved her, and Bethenny casually let slip that he’s her boyfriend.
