Did Dorinda Medley needlessly encourage all of the drama that went down between Jules Wainstein and Bethenny Frankel at the group’s dinner at Joanne Trattoria? According to Bethenny and Carole Radziwill, yes. On the latest episode of The Real Housewives of New York City that aired on Wednesday night, Bethenny and Carole, when discussing how angry Jules was with Bethenny at the group dinner, agreed that Dorinda “stirred the pot” and that she was “a little s**t-stirrer.”
As the episode aired, Dorinda, as usual, tweeted her thoughts and opinions on what people were watching. When it came to the scene of Bethenny and Carole discussing Jules’ outburst at Bethenny at the Italian restaurant, Dorinda tweeted that she’s still so proud of Jules for standing up for herself. Dorinda believes that Jules, instead of resorting to being shady, was “fierce.”
As for Carole calling her a “s**t-stirrer,” Dorinda wrote that telling the truth doesn’t make her a “s**t-stirrer.”
“That’s not true @CaroleRadziwill… I can’t be a shit-stirrer for telling the truth.”
Dorinda then tweeted to both Carole and Bethenny that if they can’t handle the truth, they can’t handle her.
Dorinda also seemingly cheered on Jules for realizing that she can’t trust Bethenny.
Carole defended herself. She called Jules and Dorinda “shady.”
Carole even told Jules and Dorinda to stop with their suspicions and get over themselves.
In response to one viewer who asked Carole if she really saying that Jules and Dorinda are shadier than her and Bethenny, Carole said yes and implied that she knows more about Jules and Dorinda than what viewers see.
Jules responded to Carole with a strongly-worded tweet. Jules warned “irrelevant” Carole to not go after her in pursuit of a story line.
On the latest episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, the women took a quick trip to Mohegan Sun casino and resort in Connecticut. Once at the resort, Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel chose to stay in the same room together. While unpacking together, Bethenny said that she had a really good talk with Sonja Morgan, whom she previously lashed out at for starting an alcohol line with a name (Tipsy Girl) very similar to her own business’ name (Skinnygirl), during the long ride and that she’s happy about it. Bethenny then asked Carole how her talk with Jules Wainstein, who criticized Bethenny for making jokes at other people’s expense during the group’s dinner at Joanne’s Trattoria, went.
Carole revealed that when she told Jules that she was confused where her anger at Bethenny was coming from, Jules brought up Dorinda Medley. Carole continued to say that when she told Jules that Dorinda had also said that she wasn’t sure where Jules’ anger was coming from, it seemed as if Jules was about to say that Dorinda, whom viewers saw tell Jules in a previous episode that she needs to stand up for herself more with Bethenny, encouraged her.
“I even said to Jules, ‘Honestly, I’m confused because I didn’t under where all that was coming from.’ She said, ‘Well, it was building up, building up.’ I was like, ‘OK.’ And then she said something about Dorinda. I said I asked Dorinda and she said she didn’t understand where it came from either. Then Jules kind of looked at me like, ‘Really?'”
“Dorinda, I think…” Carole began. “Stirred the pot,” Bethenny finished. “Yeah,” Carole agreed.
“So she got away clean,” Bethenny opined.
“Dorinda’s a little s**t-stirrer,” Carole said.
Meanwhile, in the other room, Jules Wainstein told Sonja Morgan that she will never ever share any intimate information with Bethenny Frankel again because Bethenny may then use it against her. Jules further said that Bethenny is a hypocrite for having a company called Skinnygirl but then making fun of her, a real skinny girl. Jules added that she can’t share anything with Bethenny if Bethenny’s just going to mock everything she says.
“It’s crazy. Someone who has a Skinnygirl brand and she’s bashing a real skinny girl? It’s not, like, she’s a hypocrite…Someone who says they know everything about eating disorders wouldn’t act this way to someone in recovery. You know what? Maybe it’s not healthy for me to be around her.”
Yet Bethenny doesn’t believe that she mocked Jules in any way over her eating disorder. “I missed that too,” she replied to a viewer who said that she missed the part where Bethenny bashed Jules for having an eating disorder.
Considering what has happened over the season, it’s likely that viewers will see Dorinda and Jules support and defend one another in opposition to Bethenny and Carole at the upcoming reunion show.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the cast of The Real Housewives of New York City filmed the season 8 reunion show last week. LuAnn de Lesseps, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, and Jules Wainstein sat on one couch together, opposite from Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, and Carole Radziwill.
