An in-person reunion for RHONY was a welcome change from the virtual reunion, complete with a screaming Andy Cohen as moderator.
The Real Housewives of New York reunion is upon us! The in-person reunion is the first of it’s kind since the pandemic began in March. The Real Housewives of Atlanta, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Vanderpump Rules, Shahs of Sunset, and others all did the reunion in a virtual manner over video chat. Part one of the RHONY reunion starts Thursday, September 10 at 9 PM ET, part two is Thursday, September 17, and part three is scheduled for Thursday, September 24.
The ladies quarantined for two weeks ahead of the reunion to assure they were safe to film together. Tinsley Mortimer flew in from Chicago early to be sure she was following travel and safety guidelines within the state of New York.
Now that we know Dorinda Medley is not returning for season 13, seeing her last filmed appearance as a housewife is interesting to watch. Dorinda was quite coy when Andy Cohen asked if she was dating someone – but it sounds like she might be.
Tinsley was fielding questions about her frozen eggs from seasons past. Tinsley told Dorinda that she needed to be accountable for how she treated her and mentioned that it was just too little, too late. We don’t blame her.
Ramona Singer came after Leah McSweeney for her “body parts” being visible at her party, to which Leah yelled that her friends were blind. Not only was that a jab at Ramona’s age, but at all 60 of her girlfriends, too. Leah had words with Ramona over her behavior during the quarantine. Ramona thinks she did no wrong traveling to Florida with her germs.
At one point, Dorinda said that Ramona’s 60 friends were a public service announcement for the dangers of a bad facelift – and she noted Ramona’s was too. She told Dorinda to go to church in response.
Whatever else happens in the three-part reunion, it doesn’t look like it will be a great send-off for Dorinda. It will be nice to have Tinsley back, though, and hopefully, she’s ready to face off with Dorinda one final time.
