Dorinda Medley On ‘RHONY’ Drama: ‘It Needs To Be Their Decision, Not Your Prescription’

Dorinda Medley may be brand new to The Real Housewives of New York, but she is learning that there are many different personalities on the show. Dorinda has managed to stay out of the drama with the ladies, but she has been upset with the way people have been judging her long-term boyfriend, John. However, Medley can sit back and observe what is going on with the ladies.

While having the ladies at her Berkshires home, Dorinda Medley learned that the women handle their drama differently. And Medley is learning how to deal with the judgments, emotions, and so forth. Many of the ladies always want to offer decisions, opinions, and thoughts, when the last thing they need is judgment. The prescription may just be to have a shoulder to cry on.

According to a new Bravo report, Dorinda Medley is now revealing that the ladies cope differently with major issues. Bethenny Frankel doesn’t want to talk about her divorce, but she is often in tears. Heather Thomson really wants to talk about their issues, and is very aggressive about it.

“Look, I think people go through their s**t their own way, and we have to be there to help them, not critique or send them a running commentary about it. Each journey — divorce, death, depression, and loss of any sort — can be such a lonely, confusing time. Our job is to let the person know we’re there for them. Maybe not offer an analysis or a solution, but just make them aware that you’re there to listen and help them how they NEED to be helped. It needs to be their decision, not your prescription,” Dorinda Medley reveals about the drama on the show.

If Medley learns nothing else from being on the show, she can walk away with that knowledge. And it sounds like the drama is just getting started. Each dinner the ladies have together, Dorinda learns something new about them. According to the Inquisitr, Dorinda has already asked Ramona Singer to stay out of her business, because she felt her long-time friend was too aggressive in her opinions.

“One thing I’ve definitely learned is this: Each dinner makes me more and more aware of the different personalities in play here. No one in this group means harm, but we are all quite different, so the perception of what we are trying to achieve may not be what is actually perceived. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, as they say,” Dorinda Medley reveals about the ladies.
