Does Dorinda Medley have a problem with drugs?
In a preview for the Real Housewives of New York’s Season 8 reunion, Sonja Morgan accused Medley of doing drugs. How did Medley react?
According to Us Magazine, the two-minute clip shows Medley taking the defense after Morgan brought up her drug use.
“Why are you insinuating that you know I do drugs? That’s a horrible thing,” Medley told her.
“Everybody knows you do drugs!” the Tipsy Girl founder hit back.
According to Daily Mail, some of the other ladies didn’t appreciate where the conversation was heading.
In fact, Bethenny Frankel begged host Andy Cohen, “Please someone remove me from this place.”
This isn’t the first time Medley has faced accusations of drug use on the show.
Earlier this season, Frankel accused John Mahdessian, Medley’s current boyfriend, of abusing cocaine.
Of course, the couple denied using cocaine, though the accusations came when Mahdessian showed up to a party looking agitated and nervous.
Frankel thought Medley’s boyfriend showed clear signs of being “lit up.”
“You wanna blow some lines and talk this story through,” Frankel told him during the party.
Frankel’s dish caused Medley to promptly remove Mahdessian from the event, later telling Frankel, “That’s not nice, you don’t know s**t about that.”
“This is the issue between you two that you’ve been hiding,” Frankel fired back.
It isn’t clear if the incident will be re-visited during the reunion, though the talk about Dorinda Medley’s drug use hints that the subject will be addressed once again. Maybe dirty martinis are not the only thing causing her slurring.
Meanwhile, Medley isn’t the only cast member Morgan took shots at during the reunion.
During a backstage talk with Cohen, Morgan revealed that she isn’t afraid to unleash all of the secrets she’s learned over the years.
“I have dirt on all the girls. I just hope that I don’t go there,” she stated. “But I’m starting to, after all these years, have resentment.”
Between Morgan dishing on past secrets and Medley’s drug use, the upcoming reunion is set to be one of the most confrontational in recent memory.
Not to mention Frankel’s ongoing feud with just about all of the women on the show, including Luann de Lesseps and Jules Wainstein.
Will the ladies resolve any of their differences? Or will their fighting only make things worse?
Speaking of Wainstein, Frankel claims that she only joined the show to get divorced.
As fans will recall, Wainstein is currently in the midst of a messy divorce with her estranged husband, Michael. Unfortunately for Wainstein, Frankel wouldn’t let the topic of her divorce go during the reunion.
“What is wrong with you, Bethenny,” Jules told Frankel in the preview clip.
According to Perez Hilton, things got so awkward that Frankel left feeling bad about the whole reunion and described it as “very negative.”
In addition to Medley’s drug use, the ladies will confront each other about de Lessep’s controversial engagement to Tom D’Agostino, Sonja Morgan’s ongoing problems with alcohol, and Wainstein’s highly public divorce.
The only cast member that doesn’t get raked over the coals is Carole Radziwill, who managed to go the entire season without getting into a fight with her bestie, Frankel.
At the same time, it is telling when Ramona Singer is the voice of reason, which many fans never expected to happen.
Hopefully, the ladies will work out their differences by the time the three-part reunion is over, and they can all move onto to whatever lies ahead next season.
Fans can watch all the drama unfold when part one of the Real Housewives of New York reunion airs Aug. 31 on Bravo.
