Dorinda Medley Denies Being A Drunk; Slams Bethenny Frankel’s Not-So-Subtle Put Downs! – The Real Housewives

 

Dorinda Medley isn’t buying Bethenny Frankel’s concerned act any longer.

In her latest Bravo blog, Dorinda takes aim at Bethenny Frankel and makes it clear that the Skinny Girl mogul is more of a frenemy than a friend to the entire Real Housewives of New York cast.

Dorinda calls out for Bethenny for taking pleasure in seeing her co-stars take a misstep. Adding that she’s caught on to Bethenny’s not-so-subtle put-downs that “make herself look bigger, better, smarter.”

Last but not least, Dorinda SLAMS Bethenny for belittling her late husband Richard’s career by referring to him as a “slightly powerful and slightly political.”

Check out Dorinda’s full blog below to see what else she had to say!

Let me tell you a story:

I go to Miami with my pal Bethenny. For reasons that become more obvious to me later, she has invited me to tag along on a trip to deliver cash cards to those in need in Puerto Rico. I’m excited for the journey and to help my friend. We work hard all day getting ready for the trip the following morning. To unwind, we have a few drinks, then a few more. We’ve done this together too many times to count!! Then as I settle in my hotel room to binge-watch my favorite show, Law & Order, order room service, and get a good night’s sleep as we had a 6 am wakeup call, my phone rings. Oh no! I am meant to be downstairs in five for a dinner. Dinner? With who? Bethenny’s charity partner? Nooooo!!!!!

Why am I just being told this important information? I would have opted out of Bethenny’s happy hour early. But here we are…I am exhausted, and yes already feeling the effects of our happy hour festivities, and yes I should have listened to my inner intoxicated voice and went to bed so I’d be fresh for our morning mission. But I am not one to disappoint, so I put on my Pucci and head downstairs. And….well, the rest is burnt onto the corneas of all the viewers. Yikes. Okay, it wasn’t my best, or worst, that’s for sure! But for better or worse, I was trying to find common ground with people I had just met.

Naturally, Bethenny calls me a drunk. Is she really compassionate or is this just another TV moment? We’ve all seen it before —her absolute glee while waiting for one of us to make a misstep, then she pulls out her P-Touch label maker: whore, drunk, nit-wit, loser. Cue the hug.

My late husband Richard raised millions for humanitarian efforts. In one noted evening at my townhouse, standing alongside Desmond Tutu, they raised nearly 2 million dollars for those affected in Hurricane Katrina. Perhaps that triggered something deep inside and my conversation didn’t come out the way I would have liked. I’m not great at transitions and life changes. Like many of us, at the time of this trip, I was working through some personal stuff.

Does everyone notice that Bethenny not-so-subtly puts people down to make herself look bigger, better, smarter? I often wonder how that is working for her. As far as her referring to my late husband as “slightly powerful and slightly political,” let me get another thing straight: Richard, a man Bethenny never met and, of course, never asked about, was a sought-after advisor to financial icons like George Soros and politicians on both sides of the aisle from senators to presidential candidates. He also served in the Vietnam War and earned a doctorate in political science.

So Bethenny, stick to what you know — the booze business. And by the way, he’s Doctor Medley to you.

Frenemies aside, after 23 years, I am living on my own and focusing on me. It is good and healthy. I am using this time to be selfish and figure out what makes ME, just ME, happy for a change.

Until next week…..

Does Carole Radziwill Want To Join The View? – The Real Housewives

Does Carole Radziwill Want To Join The View? – The Real Housewives

 

Rumor has it Carole Radziwill wants to join The View!

According to the podcast, Straight Shuter, Carole is begging to join the daytime talk show.

The View recently lost two co-hosts so it seems that Carole may actually have a shot at scoring a spot on the long-running show.

“Carole has actually got a shot,” a source tells Radar Online, adding that the RHONY star has maintained “deep contacts within the organization.”

However, it turns out Carole may have one “major strike against her.” Sources say ABC and The View producers aren’t thrilled that Carole shot to fame on reality TV.

Still, sources say Carole may be just what the show needs since she has a built-in fan base and can bring in new viewers.

In July, Carole announced she was exiting the Real Housewives of New York after six seasons in order “to return to  journalism and producing.”

I think Carole would be amazing on The View. Elisabeth Hasselbeck rose to fame from reality TV and was a staple on The View for years so I think ABC would be fine with Carole’s reality TV past.

Would you like to see Carole join The View? Sound off below!

Marty Caffrey Granted Temporary Restraining Order; Says Danielle Staub ‘Threatened To Stab Me!’ – The Real Housewives

Marty Caffrey Granted Temporary Restraining Order; Says Danielle Staub ‘Threatened To Stab Me!’ – The Real Housewives

 

Danielle Staub and Marty Caffrey’s split is getting UGLY!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey couple were both granted temporary restraining orders against each other after a domestic dispute at their home on Sunday night.

According to the restraining order, obtained by Radar Online, Marty claims that Danielle physically attacked him and threatened to “stab him in the neck.”

“Pla [Caffrey] reports Def [Staub] has been angry since Thursday after receiving a letter from his attorney indicating he was filing for a divorce,” the restraining order states.

When Danielle showed up at their home on Sunday, Marty says she was “disheveled and under the influence of something.”

Adding that Danielle “became extremely angry” and began to yell “you do not mess with my babies” when she noticed that he “removed some pictures of her children from the home.”

However, Marty’s claims didn’t end there. He then detailed several instances of domestic abuse.

“Over the past year, [Staub] has threatened to stab [Caffrey] in the neck at least a dozen times,” the TRO stated.

Marty also claims that Danielle physically attacked him.

“[Staub] has hit [Caffrey] in the face and chest on multiple occasions with open and closed fist and scratched him on the face and lips during one incident,” the temporary restraining order document alleged.

“[Staub] has thrown items at [Caffrey] in the past when she became angry,” the documents claim. “[Staub] has thrown a stapler and kitchen utensils at [Caffrey]. [Staub] goes on screaming tangents loud enough for the neighbors to hear whenever [Caffrey] disagrees with her. [Staub] would scream derogatory things about [Caffrey] and his children.”

Adding that he became “scared” of Danielle after one particular incident in their home.

“[Caffrey] locked the door before showering and [Staub] was standing in the bathroom doorway when he exited the shower,” he claimed. “[Caffrey] asked [Staub] how she got in and [Staub] responded, “I have experience.” [Caffrey] was scared. [Staub] has done this before in the past.”

Just months before walking down the aisle, Marty says Danielle damaged his home office “when she threw a stapler at him.”

Marty also reveals that in the Summer of 2017 Danielle tried to hit him with her car “because he wanted to park one of his cars in the garage.”

“[Staub] then went into the house, grabbed a baseball bat, and charged at [Caffrey] in the driveway threatening to hit him and break his windshield,” the documents alleged.

Currently, Danielle is “prohibited from future acts of domestic violence; prohibited from having any oral, written, personal, electronic or other forms of contact or communication with Plaintiff; prohibited from making or causing anyone else to make harassing communications to Plaintiff and prohibited from stalking, following or threatening to harm, stalk or follow Plaintiff.”

Meanwhile, Danielle’s rep tells Radar, “The claims being made are beyond preposterous and clearly a knee-jerk reaction to Danielle’s filing. I cannot imagine there is a single person gullible enough to believe any of this nonsense. If even ten percent of these claims were true, any normal person would have already filed for divorce or, better yet, not married the person in the first place. This is laughable.”

Thoughts on Marty’s claims? Do you believe Marty? Are Marty’s claims preposterous? Could you see Danielle being this crazy? Sound off below!

Thomas Ravenel Fired From Southern Charm! He Reveals On Twitter He’s Leaving, But Was He Told To Say He Quit?! – The Real Housewives

Thomas Ravenel Fired From Southern Charm! He Reveals On Twitter He’s Leaving, But Was He Told To Say He Quit?! – The Real Housewives

 

Thomas Ravenel is not returning to Southern Charm!

After being banned from the Southern Charm reunion, it’s not exactly a shock that Thomas Ravenel will not be returning to Southern Charm. He was a member of the show for five seasons. Thomas shares two children with baby mama, and fellow co-star, Kathryn Dennis. This past season we saw a lot of drama and tension between Thomas, Kathryn, and his then girlfriend, Ashley Jacobs. Although Ashley attended the reunion and said they were still together, it was recently revealed that they had broken up. Now Thomas has taken to Twitter to announce that he’s leaving the show! However; it’s being reported that he was actually fired from the show – and was told to say he quit!

According to Radar Online, Thomas announced his exit via his private Twitter account. He tweeted, “I’m not doing the show anymore. In the contract they have the right to fictionalize your story. They took advantage of me. I decided I’ve got too much to lose and informed them I’m not coming back.”

However; according to Radar sources he did not quit. Sources said, “No one quits any Bravo shows. They are locked into their contracts for multiple years and only the network and the production company can let them go.”

This season as the show was airing, two women accused him of sexual abuse and sexual assault. One woman claimed that he attacked her on Christmas back in 2015 and he paid her a $200,000 settlement. His children’s nanny Dawn from the show, claimed he assaulted her in the house. Her case is being investigated with the Charleston Police Department. This was confirmed by Kathryn during the Southern Charm reunion.

Although it’s in the news that he quit the show, it’s also being reported that he was fired and was instructed to say he’s leaving on his own. According to Tamra Tattles, “Bravo contractually required him to say he decided to leave and it was his choice and not to mention the allegations against him. This is very interesting news. Bravo is shaking in their boots about the legal nightmare of one cast member actually being charged with sexual assault on another cast member.” Thomas is free to film any other show now, though. He had a full release of all contracted terms including the non-compete clause!

According to US Weekly, back in May, sources stated his future would be, “determined at the conclusion” of the Charleston, South Carolina, police department’s investigation into the sexual assault claims.

I’m not surprised at all that Thomas is not returning to Southern Charm! It was pretty obvious that his time on the hit series was over, once he was banned from the reunion. However; it’s interesting that he would be told to say he quit if he was actually fired. I think this whole situation is a nightmare for Bravo and a is a legal catastrophe for the show. We’ll have to stay tuned to find out how the investigation ends!

Thoughts on Thomas being fired and leaving Southern Charm? Do you think he was actually told to say he quit? What do you think about his Twitter announcement? Sound off below!
