Dorinda Medley Gives Props To Bethenny Frankel After Friendship Troubles On ‘RHONY’

Dorinda Medley has expressed a dislike for Bethenny Frankel on The Real Housewives of New York because Frankel decided to question Dorinda’s relationship with John Mahdessian. Frankel was convinced that John was a bad influence on Medley, and she wanted her to truly examine her relationship with John. Dorinda quickly became defensive, and she wanted to move on from her friendships. Despite a few hurdles, Medley is now giving credit to Bethenny, even though they did go through some rough patches this season.

According to a new tweet, Dorinda Medley is now revealing that she does adore Bethenny’s work ethic. Of course, Frankel has created a huge empire with her Skinnygirl cocktail, and she has been working hard to grow her brand even larger. Judging by her recent comments praising the Skinnygirl entrepreneur, it sounds like Medley supports Bethenny fully in her business ventures. As The Real Housewives of New York aired last night, Medley went on Twitter to share her thoughts about her co-star.

“You can say what you want about Bethenny but one thing is clear: she’s a hard worker. She works her balls off… It’s a #GREAT work ethic,” Dorinda Medley revealed on Twitter as the Real Housewives of New York episode aired, adding later, “And she’s very hands-on. Truly OWNS everything she does and makes sure it’s the best it can be.”

While some people agree with Dorinda Medley about Bethenny, others feel that Frankel needs to invest more feeling and emotion in what she does. Many people feel that Bethenny is all about the money, and she needs to focus on her relationships. But Ms. Frankel has revealed that she has no interest in getting married again.

“Yes good business sense but she’s still rude, tactless & a fail at relationships. Doesn’t seem happy…ever. Money is not all,” one person wrote, while another added, “Bethenny works hard and plays hard & she’s REAL! Give the woman some props people.”

It is definitely interesting that Dorinda Medley is reaching out to Bethenny on Twitter, given their dramatic disagreements over the last couple of episodes. Medley was disappointed in Frankel because of the way she handled the situation with Mahdessian. And in her blog for the show, Bethenny revealed that Dorinda Medley apologized. Only time will tell if her apology came a bit too late.

“I felt for Dorinda but perhaps a little bit too late. Perhaps I don’t like or trust John or his influence on Dorinda. I have made that clear. Last week he attacked my personal life and the business that I created from scratch when I was broke. This is when I become like a lion protecting its young,” Bethenny Frankel revealed in her Bravo blog for The Real Housewives of New York, sharing that she had expected Dorinda Medley to apologize before she did.

And Frankel hosted her birthday BBQ party just days after the dramatic showdown at Medley’s bra party, and she later admitted that she felt awkward at her own party. Just days after having a yelling match, Medley and John showed up at Bethenny’s home in the Hamptons.

“Now, two days later, she, in my opinion, mistakenly brings him to my birthday party. He, in my opinion, mistakenly comes. The sight and presence of him was too much for me. I didn’t want him there. I made that clear. I didn’t buy his apology. Now I need to try to suck it up for Dorinda,” Frankel explains, sharing that she had to be peaceful at her own birthday party to keep the peace with Dorinda and her boyfriend, John.

What do you think of Dorinda Medley’s support of Bethenny Frankel? Are you surprised that she’s reaching out to Frankel on Twitter after their fights on the past couple of episodes?
