RHONY Season 8 Reunion Part 1


Part one of the Real Housewives of New York reunion aired tonight and it was definitely full of drama.

The reunion started out with Dorinda Medley and her relationship with John Mahdessian. Dorinda shared that she was still seeing John a couple of times a week, and that she didn’t see herself marrying him, but she also didn’t see herself breaking up with him anytime soon. As far as the women being harsh on John, Ramona Singer admitted she didn’t use the right timing when she told her friend that John said he took Viagra and “banged” her for “six hours a night.”

In an interesting turn of events, Andy turned to Bethenny to ask her about some of her comments about John this season, in particular when she asked John if he wanted to go do some lines and talk about it at the bra party. Andy said, “It sounds like you’re referring to coke.” Bethenny quipped, “I am.” Dorinda tried to get Bethenny to come out and say what she was implying, but instead, Frankel said, “I’m not here to ruin people’s lives. I’m not here to f*ck with people.” Suddenly, Sonja Morgan chimed in, “Everybody knows you do drugs!” LuAnn then told Dorinda to just “drop it” because they decided they’re “not going to go there.”

Then, the subject turned to Bethenny being accused of slut-shaming LuAnn. “Yes, indeed, he was a married man, and he cried on my shoulder all night!” LuAnn admitted of the married man she slept with in Turks and Caicos. “The real hypocrite in this room is Bethenny. You’re going out with a married man!”

“But she was going out with him for a while while he was still married and living at home. Everybody knows it!” LuAnn continued. “This has been going on for a long time, so as much as you want to say he’s separated, you’re separated, that is not the case! That’s a lie, and you’re a hypocrite!”

“LuAnn, there’s not a guy in Manhattan that you haven’t slept with!” Bethenny yelled back. LuAnn added that Bethenny’s situation was even worse because Bethenny went to high school with the wife of the guy she’s dating. When Andy asked Frankel if her boyfriend left his wife because of her, she absolutely denied it and told a story about the two of them having a dinner “as friends” at the Polo Club and running into some of his friends from his neighborhood.

Bethenny explained that she didn’t want his wife to get the wrong idea and think anything was going on, so she actually called her to tell her what happened. “You were covering your tracks,” LuAnn snapped. “I wasn’t interested in him!” Bethenny insisted. “It took a while. I liked him as a friend.” Bethenny said when she’d called the wife to explain that nothing had happened and they’d never been intimate, and wife said she “knew nothing would happen.”

LuAnn continued to challenge Bethenny’s story until Frankel snapped, “LuAnn, you’ve never been out with a man you haven’t had sex with, and everyone knows that!”

Andy asked, “How is that not slut-shaming?” Bethenny paused and said, “Maybe it is. I don’t know the exact definition of slut-shaming, but if it is calling out the fact that LuAnn has written books on etiquette and behaves like a complete whore when she’s out, I am guilty.”

At that point, Bethenny pulled out her phone to call her boyfriend’s daughter to prove that she wasn’t lying. The daughter confirmed that she was never seeing her boyfriend while he was still living with his wife.

“Say it again that I was dating a married man while I was in his house!” she shouted at LuAnn.

“You are a liar. You are a horrible person,” de Lesseps responded. “You were born a liar, and you will die a liar!” Bethenny shouted back. Then LuAnn called Bethenny evil.

What did you think of part one?

Bethenny is not a nice person…. period…..
Carole … liked her first season but I’m over her silliness
Dorinda – love her…. she’s fun!
Ramona – I like her attitude now
Sonja with a J….. bird brain…
LuAnne — feel bad for her … women calling other women a whore… shame on B
Jules – keep her.. more to come with her next season (I think)


Totally agree with you on all of the women.. Especially Bethenny! She is so vile. She seems like the one hyped up on Cocaine all of the time.. I hope that her fiancé or boyfriend watches the show to see how nuts she is..

Ok now that explains it, Betheny doing drugs now her behavior makes sense!

Loved nearly everyone’s outfits, but Ramona was too subdued, and Carole’s Alexander McQueen is horrible for sitting. It’s a piece that only works when the person wearing it is in movement. Beyond that, this reunion is is MESSY with a capital “M” …and I am here for it.

didn’t like Carole’s dress…. she looked silly……

I don’t watch this show. I thought all the outfits were just meh. The RHOBH ladies remain the best dressed. Carole’s McQueen can only possibly work on someone like Cate Blanchett. I would’ve liked that look better if she removed the sleeve, pulled her hair up and got rid of the accessories ( necklace and earrings) and a stronger lip stick

I don’t think any of the NY women ( I can’t call them ladies) wear really nice clothes. There is an old NY on in UK at the moment, Ramona and Luann don’t look to have changed their styles at all, still wearing satin, Sonja is still wearing her old clothes which I much prefer to keep buying the same old same old. Dorinda hasn’t been around that long to say, same as Jules. Bethenny I have never liked her clothes same as Carol. Xoxox

Suze ❤️❤️❤️

Rain ❤️❤️❤️

❤️❤️❤️❤️❌⭕️❌ Suze, I needed to put that here just because. 😉

You are such a Sweetie! Xoxoxox

Group hug lol ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Definitely a big group hug! Xoxoxox

Rain, I know what you mean. Carole’s jewelry was over the top. With a dress like that, it’s the simpler the better when it comes to jewelry and any accessorizing. What she wore did not work with that dress at all. The focus should have been on Carole and not the overabundance of fabric she was wearing. Less is more really…with accessories. I like your idea about her hair too. She tried to dress a bit formal in a hippy sort of way sorta kinda, but it did not work. She had a bit of a gypsy vibe there. It… Read more »

Oh, when it came to the colors they wore, I was thinking it was like Jules and Ramona didn’t get the memo, and Carole just misinterpreted it a wee bit. 😮

Sandy, my reposne to you went all the way down ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I thought Dorinda looked fabulous with a capitol F. I think Dorinda, in a contest of who is the best looking of this group, wins hands down. I think she is very beautiful. She has class, even when she has had too many, which I know is often, she doesn’t go below the belt. Which ( IMO ) means she doesn’t have it in her to do so. My Grandmother, Nana, used to say “Drunk [men] speak sober thoughts.” I have been around enough people, including my first husband, my brother, one of my sister’s, & quite a few other… Read more »

No time for me to read it all now. I started to, but it is later than I thought. I have to start din din. Just one thing, 3 D’s. I got married in 1984 and I am married 32 years. You are married longer than me, I think, unless you made a typo. Just something I noticed. I have to try to read it all later. Have a nice day. 😉

3Ds, I am so glad I read all that because I wouldn’t have found your message to me at the end 🙂 xoxoxo. I don’t watch this show and judging from the feedback from different people, it seems the characters are just as polarizing as RHOBH. I remember trying to watch it a few years ago but I couldn’t last more than 10 min. LOL. you ladies have all clocked in some good marriage time xoxoxo. that’s awesome. While I was a bit wild in my younger years (slut of the year 2 years running lol) , I have been… Read more »
OOhh, sounds fun. I didn’t know the twins were old enough for girlfriends! Family events are always the best, and/or friends too. It warms my heart to hear you are working. One thing I have wished I could do for a while now is go back to work part time too. I am so proud to hear you have done it, wow! Your Son will find out that he deserves better when the initial sadness wears off. It is a good thing, IMO, for boys and girls to date for quite a while before being truly serious. It seems to… Read more »
Thank you for your lovely response 3Ds ❤️❤️❤️ I think we message each other but may not always get those messages becuause we don’t have alerts. I worry about the ones I love here too and it’s sad to think that someday they may stop posting and never hear from them again Yes my twin boys are in college and they both go to Stanford. Close enough to keep their mom happy but far enough to give them a little space and freedom 🙂 they wanted to get accepted somewhere together and luckily they did, they’re very attached to each… Read more »

Stanford! Wow! You have two brilliant sons. Do they want to become doctors? Just wondered. That is one exceptional school. You are one awesome proud mama. ❤️❤️❤️

Engineering, just like their brother. Oh yes very proud. I’d sell a kidney to make sure they finish 🙂 they’re smart kids and they get great grades . My daughter was the artsy one being the only girl, it made her feel unique and special ❤️❤️❤️❤️

No kidney selling, please! I am sure your boys are amazingly brilliant and will be amazing engineers. My eldest is a mechanical engineer who specializes in design in NYC at any international design firm. He does it all from the engineering to the design (of just about anything) and has worked his way up the ladder. I am not trying to brag, just proud. He has always been creative and inventive, as well as a math whiz. It is the engineering mind. You know it with your boys, and you must be so very proud, and I know it already!… Read more »
Yoir daughter is gifted too. I did not mean to leave her out…just that we have engineer sons in common, though my other son is an accountant and excels in numbers too and names. Jobs are better for accountants. I know you are artsy too. It shows, and you could be an engineer too! It is nice that your daughter feels special. She is! I have boys. I wanted a girl, but most of all healthy children. 😉 Oh, I have a feeling you have a very nice cane too. When my one son used a cane not too long… Read more »

That came out wrong! Jobs are better for engineers than accountants from what I can tell and is what I thought I wrote! My mind is mush again!

Have a nice evening, Rain. 😉

Oh you’re so sweet Sandy! How amazing about your son!!!!!! Yes we are both proud moms and I am ok bragging about my kids lol, that’s allowed , right? So feel free to brag about your kids. We are proud that’s all , and I’d be proud of them no matter what/ I also see how HARD they work as I’m sure your kids have worked hard too. They haven’t taken anything for granted and that’s important in life and to me. I didn’t want to raise entitled brats. As far as people saying that they want better for their… Read more »

Wow is right. Such quality people and proud ladies with their families here. I am so honored to be part of it. oxoxoxoxoxo to you both right here, and all the other great ladies here.

Oh, Rain, I do know what you mean about do better. I won’t elaborate but I am thankful the relationship ended for my son over a year ago, but I do hope he finds that special someone who appreciates him and loves him for who he is and likewise, someone he loves and does not settle for either. I hope the same for your son, too. ❤️❤️❤️

Hey, My friend, I married in ’85, exclusive since ’81. So, 31 years this last July being married, together since 1981. Have a wonderful dinner. ❤️

That makes sense to me now. Thanks. 🙂 xo

Dinner all done, eaten, cleaned up. I just read the rest. We are not agreeing about some of it of course. 😉 I like Carole as Carole, but not when she is the mean girl persona, since it doesn’t look good on her IMO. She is like that more so when she is with Bethenny. It is not all the time. Bethenny can be Cruella DeVille at times, and other times, I like her. She can be really funny in a not too nasty way when she wants. I admire them both foor their inteligence. Bethenny is amazing with all… Read more »

Yes, Bethenny was quite ill for this reunion. It was not very long before her major surgery, and she kept working. Last time I was ill I lost 40 pounds, and I have never had an eating disorder. She pushes herself and admits her faults, I am a fan of the survival skill it took to handle herself in the world she works in and is still such a devoted Mom and friend. So glad dinner was good, it is the time to catch up and be with family. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I beg you, luann is fake, and i am happy bethanny will destroy her. I dont get why you all think Luann is so patience-worth!

I agree, Tatiana.


B has gone off the rails. Does she think that it’s ok to talk to L , D, J like she does with no consequences? She really should be embarrassed and needs help. It’s actually uncomfortable to watch her attempt to destroy people’s reputations and relationships. On the topic of relationships, the phone call was terrible, looked like a set up and sounded like one too. And does she want her ‘marriage’ torn apart? I mean 4+ year divorce on a 2 year sham marriage. She’s the poster child for meanest girl, regardless of how you feel about the other… Read more »
Whose relationship did she try to destroy? Tom’s and Luann’s? A good relationship can not be destroyed by a rumor, unless there is something wrong with one or both people in it, certainly not by one person like Bethenny. Both of them have a REP in NY that was there before Bethenny and will last longer than this show. But, who else? Tom was on a stool right as people walk in the front of the bar at the effing REGENCY, where all of Manhattan “society” frequents. We, the viewers, simply wouldn’t have gotten such a nice look at it… Read more »

The stuff she spews is wretched . She’s nasty to everyone. Luann and Tom, dorinda and john, Jules and her husband.

Bethenny had never met Tom while they were all in Miami anyway, whether she has by now or not I don’t know. Her and Luann go back 8 years and every word B speaks about Lu is true. She has said not one word to Jules or Michael, or ABOUT THEM, since the brunch, which she apologized for and to which her sincere apology was accepted. There has not been ONE WORD written or spoken about Jules or her pig husband from Bethenny. Jules blurts out about her eating disorder, then apparently tells Bethenny a bunch of secrets about her… Read more »

I think LuMann is phony ands lies about everything and anything, I also think by the looks on everybody’s faces when the word drugs came up Dorinda obviously does drugs nobody stuck up for her and told her to drop it so I do think Dorinda isn’t honest about who she really is although I do enjoy watching her when she’s drunk the slurring the arms flying around. More to come…….

well if I was doing recreational drugs – I wouldn’t want it broadcast on tv…. some of the stuff the showcase is crap and way toooo personal for tv… I know it’s reality but there are lines not to be crossed.

So the drug use issue came forth–why wasn’t more discussed instead of implication, and followed by, “do we really want to go there” just to threaten?

Why did Andy allow Bitchany to get off the sofa several times when he was so adament about the ATL bunch not getting up?

Lastly, Lu is a liar, Bitchany is just that, and Dorinda is a drunk fool just like Sonja. The chic on the end with the long black hair who sits quietly gained weight, looks better, and needs to go away.

That was certainly some reunion, and there is more to come. I am not surprised if B does coke, and now hearing that D most likely does as well…Well, luckily Luann put a stop to that talk. Clearly Dorinda was upset about her daughter finding out about her mother’s alleged drug use. Maybe she stays with John because he is her…..I won’t go there…just a thought. Sonja did say that Dorinda does do drugs. Bethenny was stirring up lots of trouble last night. She heard (from whomever she hears gossip) that Jules went on the show to get divorced Jules… Read more »

I believe along with her “nice girl” act, Jules also plays “naive girl” a little too much. Any man that comes home consistently late and showers, when he didn’t used to, or the shower is making them late for a planned event with people he wants to see, is washing off more than the work day’s dirt.

Bitchanny needs psychiatric help. She has always been (since her Martha Stewart apprentice days) a loud-mouthed, angry, pushy, needy, sharp-tongued attention whore. She hasn’t changed ONE bit, except now she has $ which means she thinks it’s HER right to sit back and judge everyone with her loud-mouthed, angry, pushy, needy, sharp-tongued attention whore EXPECTATIONS of the world. She is such an ugly hearted, broken little girl. I wouldn’t be surprised if they all did drugs. We know Carole loves to get stoned, so does Andy for that matter but I don’t think it’s illegal anymore. I wouldn’t be surprised… Read more »

Oh my gosh GIGI, I love you. You make me not even have to write anymore. Agree Agee Agee

Is Agee really even a word? Well that’s what my phone autocorrected agree to.

LMAO, this reunion is too funny—they are all like dirty politicians calling out each other’s (dirty laundry)—NONE are clean, they all embarrass NY & HW’s. They drink way too much, add drugs to the mix and sex with anyone who has a pulse—Pathetic…. bethanny is just too darn angry and mean–very narcissist. carole subdued in that hideous dress, but a back stabber. dorito drugged out slusher. ramona–I just can’t with that loser, uggg. sonya–waste of air time, should be cooking something in her toaster oven. jules–waay, waay, adds nothing to the show. luann—rode hard put up wet, had lots of… Read more »
So…you enjoy watching so you can blast them all, every single one of them? Because if that’s it, I hope you have fun doing that. But, I am curious, do you watch the show itself? And, just do that all season? If yes, why? Personally I would consider it a waste of emotion, so I have curious feelings about posters and hope you actually answer, because it is not a snotty way I am asking, just genuinely not understanding. I very much dislike the OC now and Atlanta, so I don’t watch because I would have only shitty things to… Read more »
I kind of like all of them to be honest. I’m not a huge fan of LieAnn and I do think she is a bit of a whore, liar, snake … Bethenny: witty, funny, needs to work on impulse control Carole: honest and chill, I’m skeptical she is really dating Adam Dorida: full of surprises, sometimes I think she is too nice and she will defend herself like a champ; sometimes she is a sh!t stirrer and others she seems to be trying to help; I haven’t figured her out but I like her and live for the slurred toasts… Read more »


I absolutely find the actions of these “ladies” (and I am using the term loosely here), to be beyond tasteless and classless. If this is the best New York City has to offer, then out of the 8.6M people, you surely can find women with more things to keep us entertained than these women. OK, so they have money………as Luann’s song says, “Money can’t buy you class”. True statement and it is more profound than she thought it is. All that being said, the insinuations bandied about last night were low class and below-the-belt pot shots. Since they don’t see… Read more »

Thank you sweetie ❤️❤️❤️ I feel the dress wore her and she didn’t wear the dress. With such a high neXk you just have to pull your hair up. There was just TOO MUCH going on 🙂 the color also just washed her out. Yes it’s a gypsy vibe and it could’ve looked less frumpy if it was styled better . I bet Cynthia Bailey could rock that dress

I honestly think there are very few who could rock that dress. It is too much. It almost belongs in a different age, really, like in a movie about the past…a long time ago.
It must be a fun to dress up in that dress and twirl and twirl, but it does not work for me. Maybe it would be okay as the bridesmaids’ dresses in a wedding that takes place on the remade set of the Addams Family?

Since you mentioned twirling, it made me think of Kenya LOL

Thanks very much! It’s bed time here now I will have nightmares about twirling and Kenya! Great! Xoxoxox

No no Suze! Dreams of Ken, I’m sure Lisa won’t mind 🙂

Kenya in that dress…maybe? 😉

no , not in that dress. she’s too voluptuous for that dress I think 🙂 the word twirl just always reminds me of her crazy lol

I knew that! I was thinking she would fit the theme of that dress maybe, meaning she can wear it to the wedding at The Addams Family home? 😉

I wouldn’t mind being invited to that wedding lol

Why am I not surprised! 😮
I hope Lurch is there to greet you along with Cousin It! You rang?

Now that has really done it! I will try and think of Ken or Ewan McGregor that might help me sleep eventually! Xoxoxoxox

oh yes, ewan is always reliable 🙂


Yes! Ewan! Sweet dreams Suzy. Xxxxooooo❤️

I almost said dream of Ken….no ya. 😉 xoxo❤️

Thanks sweetie and I didn’t! Shame! Haven’t slept at all, I’m always like this the night before! Pathetic really xoxoxoxoxox

Oh, Suze, I am so sorry. I hope you are able to get some sleep later today. Take care.

Hi Sandy, home now, all over for another three weeks thank goodness! Xoxoxoxox

Three weeks is a nice break. I am always happy to see you, Suze! XOXO

TV news on….showing all the people at the beach and then the approaching storm ( now a tropical storm and dowgraded from hurricane) on a holiday weekend. Oh well, the summer was a hot one and the beach areas did a booming business. Coastal flooding may happen with this and the seas are too rough to swim in even now.
It is still hot, though this morning was a little cool and refreshing and great dog walking weather. 😉 XO

I just now saw this. Oh, Suzy, nothing you do is pathetic. What is pathetic is governments that have not seen fit to make sure a cure for it has been found. So so many wonderful, beautiful people suffer. And none of them are pathetic. I will never believe that of you. You are beautiful, gutsy girl. You have more courage than anyone I have ever known. I am honored to be called a friend of someone so deep and lovely.

I love that Bethenny is back! Bethenny always calls it like it is and is truthful. Bethenny is very good at reading people and articulating what is going on and calling it like it is. Not only was it cleary said that Dorinda and John use cocaine but ALL of the ladies agreed. IF Dorinda was innocent of using cocaine she would have defended herself and John and if necessary gotten very heated about it. Instead, Dorinda just whinned that she does not use drugs and that she goes home every night to her daughter. When Sonja exclaimed that everyone… Read more »
Thank you Anonymous for saying what you said about Dorinda. She has enough gumption to be able to stick up for herself and you are right, she would have defended herself. Bethenny says in her tagline “If you can’t handle the truth, you can’t handle me”. No one can say they didn’t know that she says it like it is. And, she generally can back up what she says with facts! Everyone already knew she was like this except for maybe Jules. And, Jules attacking Bethenny for something she “thought” B had said was incredibly silly & sad. She kept… Read more »
Dorinda probably does drugs. Bethenny knows how to conduct herself in a court of law recently, so makes sense that she wouldn’t say something untrue or couldn’t be proven in some fashion . Dorinda is a pot stirrer , her Boyfriend is a buffoon for sure. They are all too old to be using cocaine btw, their hearts might flicker off for goodness sakes ! Lu likes sex…..too bad we have to shame Women for that btw…although she is a hypocrite, just own it Lu..! Scary housewife Carole is caught up in a time warp , where she thinks her… Read more »

BTW, for all of you who celebrate it………..Happy Labor Day Weekend!!!!!
