Dorinda Medley recently appeared on Chanel Omari’s podcast, Chanel in the City, where she took aim at her Real Housewives of New York City co-star, Ramona Singer, for failing to be there for her as she endured her heartbreaking split from longtime boyfriend John Mahdessian in 2019.
Previously, Dorinda confirmed on the Bravo reality series that she and John had parted ways after seven years together, explaining that she was no longer satisfied by the dynamic of their relationship. This week, Dorinda told Chanel that while some of her castmates, including Leah McSweeney and Sonja Morgan, checked on her to make sure that she was okay after learning of her breakup, the same couldn’t be said for Ramona.
In fact, according to Dorinda, Ramona was not only not there for her but actually made things worse by making certain allegations about her.
“I mean, it’s a lot when you’re going through a breakup, your house is being renovated, your dog died, and I really got the feeling like certain people like Ramona piled on,” she revealed, according to a report from ET Canada on June 30. “She found any opportunity to pile on.”
Other members of The Real Housewives of New York City made an effort to keep Dorinda in a good place as she coped with the many things she was dealing with amid filming on Season 12 last summer and fall. However, Ramona apparently suggested that she was drinking too much and accused her of being an alcoholic.
Dorinda refuted Ramona’s statement regarding her drinking habits, explaining that she barely drank during production on the currently-airing episodes.
“When someone is going through a hard time a person is a girl’s girl. You don’t hit them while you’re down,” she added.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Dorinda told Us Weekly in May that when it came to filming The Real Housewives of New York City Season 12, she felt extremely vulnerable. This was due to the fact that she was not only going through a breakup but also dealing with a broken rib and a major flood at her vacation home in The Berkshires — a place which has been frequented by the cast in recent years.
“There’s a lot of things going on… that I am going through myself that are making me definitely on edge and uptight,” she explained.
Dorinda then admitted that certain episodes have been quite hard for her to watch.
