Dorinda Medley is taking to her blog to say that she wasn’t pleased how the guest list for Mexico was composed. Medley asks if Carole Radziwill has the final approval of all guests lists and shares her compassion for what Jules Wainstein is going through with her divorce.
“Well well wellâ€¦here we are, out of the fire and into the flameâ€¦and you can see there are new fires just â€œgetting lit.â€ I keep saying this and I feel like Iâ€™m the only one: Live and let LIVE! We are grown women and can decide what, where, and when we spend our time, and, specifically, WHO WITH. What may work for me in my relationships may not work for someone else. At this point, I think itâ€™s clear â€” what works for me may not work for other relationships. With that said, it makes me really uncomfortable to see Luannâ€™s relationship with Tom â€” however â€œyoungâ€ it may be â€” be scrutinized and judged like this. But I do understand there is quite an â€œelement of surpriseâ€ in all this. Would I like it if my close girlfriend dated the man I am in love with? No, but I tend to be a bit territorial to say the leastâ€¦LOL. And yes, even jealous. To be honest, I would be asking lots of questions and asking every detail: How many times did you go out, where did you go, what did you wear, what did SHE wear, what did you order, did you kiss, did you sleep together, etcâ€¦. But thatâ€™s me. (And maybe thatâ€™s you too?) Credit to Lu, she doesnâ€™t seem to mind about the past and is all focused on her future. Sheâ€™s happy, so thatâ€™s that. At the end of the day, itâ€™s not my business to poke around in it.
I will say this: Ramona shouldâ€™ve been given the heads up, because they DID go out on several dates. Ramona mentioned it to all of us, and it wouldâ€™ve been the right thing for Lu to do. So thatâ€™s that. (And if anyone shouldâ€™ve gotten a bracelet out of all this, it shouldâ€™ve been Sonja! Am I right, ladies?!)
She shouldnâ€™t really talk about her â€œrelationshipâ€ with Tom. Thatâ€™s not nice. And you know me, I like it NICE! So I understand that Sonja is still upset about the Berkshires â€” not just in this episode, but STILL â€” like, in real life. Like Iâ€™ve been saying for weeks, I stand by my decision. I told her in this episode, going to the Berkshires â€œwould have been DREAD-FUL for you.â€ Truly, madly, deeply dreadful. It wasnâ€™t me keeping Sonja away or trying to â€œice her out,â€ it was me understanding that this had the potential for being a high-intensity overnight stay, and I knew there were a few witches a-brewinâ€™ and that at any moment something wicked couldâ€™ve come her way! Itâ€™s the same reason Sonja was basically blocked from the Mexico trip. Hereâ€™s the thing, going on holiday or a girls trip is NOT the time or the place to try and iron out some wrinkles. So, Sonja, the right place was NOT Dorindaâ€™s. The right place was somewhere in which you and Bethenny were both willing participants and where you could both easily just leave if the situation became worse. Cooped up in a country house is NOT that kind of place! Leaving a party or getting into a car and going home IS. I just think itâ€™s odd that Sonjaâ€™s clinging to the Berkshires thing and doesnâ€™t really have much to say about the Mexico thing. I mean, she was virtually thrown out of Bethennyâ€™s office, in tears, after hearing the words â€œI never want to see you again,â€ but yet sheâ€™s furious with ME?! Seems a bit odd, donâ€™t you think? She called me a â€œfakeâ€ on WWHL, and let me tell youâ€¦ thatâ€™s the first time anyoneâ€™s ever referred to ME as â€œfake.â€ Just proves sheâ€™s still lovable, delusional Sonja Morgan. But it was nice to know she loved my Berserkshires moment about all the toil and trouble at Blue Stone Manor that night when she was on Watch What Happens Live. (And my new #MCM will be the adorable superfan Jerry Oâ€™Connell!)
But, waitâ€¦thereâ€™s MORE! Yes, I have an issue with how the Mexico invitation list was â€œcomposedâ€ as well. Does Carole have final approval of guest lists? I listen to peopleâ€™s suggestions and concerns, but I donâ€™t let anyone hijack an event, party, or guest list because they have a bee in their bonnetâ€¦thatâ€™s not NICE! Anyway, I *THINK* Iâ€™m invited, but after that little chat with the girls, I donâ€™t know if anyone actually *IS*â€¦ Seriously, your guess was as good as mine.
But back to Luannâ€¦ If weâ€™ve learned anything about Luann, itâ€™s that Lu doesnâ€™t take NO for an answer. Even though she was never asked, she will preemptively not take NO for an answer. Itâ€™s comical. Even how they showed up, Lu in white, B in blackâ€¦ This was an epic, poetic, Cold War showdown over red wine in Manhattan. It was funny, awkward, provocative, and very, very telling. It looked like B was in a revival of â€œDazed and Confusedâ€ by Tommy Tune, and not getting a word in edgewise for the first time since 1986, and Lu was having quite the soliloquy about love, life and her pursuit of happiness. Tear down those walls, Lu!
And now, in closing, a few thoughts on Jules and Michaelâ€¦
Let me fill you in on some factsâ€¦ They were over an hour late. So what else is there to do? #MartiniTime! And when they showed up, you could cut the tension better than the steaks we were served. And you know meâ€¦Dorinda likes to make it NICE, so I proceeded to try and give some advice â€” some Martini-fueled advice, but it was all from a good place. Iâ€™ve been married twice, and I can tell you this: The best of marriages have those moments where you love him so much, you canâ€™t breathe. And then there are times where you canâ€™t stand him to save your life. Clearly this was one of those moments. But also, we now know there was much more going on behind the scenes that even I didnâ€™t see. I realize there were deeper problems now, with Michael always being late, always on the phone, taking selfies, joking about hot nannies or hot girlsâ€¦ Much deeper problems, sadly.
Itâ€™s always sad when a family has to go through that and a marriage breaks apart. Had I known it was the beginning of the end, I would have just asked for the check instead of another glass. But Iâ€™m here for you, Jules. We all are.”
