I may have time to purple pen a few more RHONY blogs over the weekend, but I’d like to start with Dorinda first. I’ve chosen to start here because there were actually other things that happened and other relationship dynamics this season that did not include Bethenny. Long before Bethenny went in on Sonja for the Skinny Girl v. Tipsy girl issue which I’ve outlined extensively here, Sonja had been ignored by Bethenny and her minions leaving Sonja to try to make nice with Dorinda and Luann. Sonja and Luann were targets of Bethenny’s for ostracisation because of they were holding out for bigger contracts and thought they deserved to be paid the same salary as Bethenny. Luann even agreed to pretend to live with Sonja at the beginning of the show. And yet, Sonja didn’t value Luann or Dorinda’s willingness to cross the picket line and film with her. And Dorinda will not be making that mistake again. Because she paid for that action at the reunion when Bethenny publicly accused her of using drugs and Sonja of all people jumped on the bandwagon. Sonja is not pleased by this.

From Dorinda ‘s Blog:
Let’s talk about Sonja, shall we? I’d like to touch on the friendship (or lack thereof) with Lady Morgan. As you all saw, I barely saw her this past year. Barely spoke with her, barely saw her, barely remembered she was around because she was cooped up in her townhouse all winter.
And because Bethenny was shunning her and the rest of the cast didn’t care.
Honestly, I didn’t know her before I started meeting all the girls last year. I knew OF her because her reputation precedes her, but I had no personal connection with her before we sat down for our first lunch last season. I know nothing of her day-to-day life, and she definitely has no idea about mine, because I don’t have a reputation that precedes me — not like that. We have some mutual friends, and I always found her entertaining, if not amusing, but she decided last year that I wasn’t worth her time or attention or interest…and I’m fine with that. 100%. So I didn’t have much to do with her this year.
Sonja really messed up on the previous season by not making friends with Dorinda. She’s a good one to have. Even Jules was smart enough to see that.
It seems the only one who did was Luann because she needed a place to stay. So there she was, Lady Morgan wearing fur coats in her kitchen, talking to Luann about Tom or Tipsy Girl or that time she flew her soccer team around the world to collect seashells in St. Tropez…
Ah, that is the Dorinda I love. Snarky Dorinda. This post was actually written by angry Dorinda. And this is about as brutal as she gets. She clearly hasn’t hired a P.I., or tried to destroy anyone’s happiness.
I was blindsided to hear she was STILL so angry about not coming up to Blue Stone Manor for our one night in the Berkshires… STILL. I’ve said it before: I stand by that decision. It wasn’t because of anyone else — it was because I didn’t want her to be decimated, because I knew a LOT of people had a LOT of issues with her, and I simply wasn’t in the mood to referee or take a hit for anyone. And I knew no one else would either. (Little did I know the firing squad had shown up anyway…)
Translation, I knew that Bethenny was going to come for Sonja if she showed up, and Bethenny did not want her invited due to the recent contract situation, so she left her of the guest list hoping that without a target, Bethenny might actually behave appropriately in her home for once. What she didn’t see coming was Bethenny just picking a new topic to viciously attack. It seems she always finds a way to destroy any event that Dorinda hosts no matter how many steps Dorinda takes to over catastrophe.
Can you imagine how much worse it would’ve been had Lady Morgan lamented the loss of her latest lover before the Countess and her Executioner? How epic? No thanks — I wanted a quiet weekend in the country with board games, Christmas pajamas and a few bottles of wine with friends, not a Duel of the Divas. The last thing we needed was to hear about Sonja and her former friend with no more benefits — I really would’ve set my house on fire!
I’d love to have a PJ party in the Berks with Dorinda and some board games. Her plan does sound quite lovely. Way too good for this pack of shrews.
Sonja is not my friend, she never has been, and by the looks of it, never will be. She’d rather make up stories in her head than make the effort, and I’ve got a real life going on, not an imaginary one. Who knows…maybe she needed to get out more and should’ve come so she could have an axe worth grinding with the ones who care enough to fire back: Bethenny, Ramona, and Luann. Not Dorinda… Dorinda just wants to cut the sh– and make it nice.
Way to rise above the madness Dorinda. You and Luann both did a good job of not getting all worked up for the most part. Sure there was the drunk rant in your kitchen. But that was totally justified. Dragging out all of those Christmas Santas was totally wasted on the pack of shrews. Again, I would have loved it.
