The eighth season of the Real Housewives of New York just started and the ladies are already turning against each other. In the second episode this season, Bethenny Frankel and Dorinda Medley got into a shouting match about Medley’s love life. As the conversation escalated, Frankel couldn’t help but call out Medley for her partying ways.
According to Us Weekly, the drama unfolded during Medley’s bra party that she hosted for the cast members. Most of the Housewives came out for the event, including Ramona Singer, Frankel, Carole Radziwill, and newcomer Jules Wainstein. Although the party started off on good footing, things quickly took a turn when Radziwill and Singer got into an argument over their friendship.
From here, Frankel revealed that Medley’s boyfriend, John Mahdessian, had approached her about a business opportunity. However, she felt uncomfortable with the situation, especially after John requested her number when Medley left the room. Naturally, Medley defended her man’s actions and took a stab at Frankel.
“I think it’s really not right of you because you know what? He’s a nice guy,” Medley stated. “If he crossed over a line, I will have him apologize to you, and I will certainly not [have] him do it again!”
Of course, Frankel did not stop there. She proceeded to tell Medley that she always tries to push her boyfriend onto the group and hinted that they really don’t like him. In reply, Medley told Frankel and everyone else in earshot that John is a part of her life and that they should just get used to it.
Following Medley’s reaction, Singer brought up a Viagra story that John had allegedly told her recently. Apparently, John revealed that he likes to get “really buzzed at night” and then “pop a lot of Viagra.”
Medley refused to believe the story and called out Singer for siding against her.
“As a friend for 20 years, you talk to me about it separately!” she told her. “I’ve married a person. I buried a person. I pay my own bill… I choose who to be with… You don’t like it… I don’t give a s**t! Back it up, and stop the bulls**t!”
Upon hearing Medley’s outburst, Bethenny Frankel was quick to point out how Medley hasn’t been acting responsible in recent months. In particular, Frankel noted that Medley has had a few drunken tirades of her own.
“You guys get f**cked up beyond repair!” she told Medley. “You had to be carried out of my house!”
After the episode aired, Reality Tea is reporting that Medley sat down with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live and discussed her feud with Frankel. In regards to her boyfriend, Cohen directly asked Medley why she thinks he is a good influence on her life.
“I love him, he makes me laugh, he’s always positive and happy. He’s a good boyfriend and he came into my life at a time when I needed a really good friend and someone to support me and be part of my life,” Medley shared. “And I choose him, that’s the end game. I choose him.”
In addition to her interview with Cohen, Medley and Frankel have exchanged a war of words over social media. While the two went back and forth about Medley’s actions at the party, Frankel promised fans that things only get worse from here on out.
“The very f**ked up truth is that tonight is a church mouse compared to what goes down next week. I really don’t know what to say,” Frankel wrote in a Twitter post.
