When asked why she did not invite Jill Zarin to her home in the Berkshires, Dorinda Medley of The Real Housewives of New York City said, “Who is she?”.
Producer Andy Cohen shared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that Jill Zarin was unhappy that she was excluded from the trip. “Jill Zarin posted an Instagram story saying you blocked her from coming to the Berkshires this season,” he told Dorinda Medley who was a guest. “What was your reaction to that?” “Who’s that?” Dorinda Medley said when Cohen paused, but then he laughed.
He went further to ask if Dorinda Medley and Jill Zarin were friends. “Jill just wrote me a text like three weeks ago, wanting to give me a free rug outdoors,” Medley said. “And this big, long text. And then I saw this. I didn’t even know I had the right to invite non-cast members to a cast party. It’s really nothing. It was bizarre.” Meanwhile, Medley’s sister and former cast member Heather Thomson attended the dinner at the Blue Stone Manor during the last episode.
RHONY: Jill Zarin Blasted Dorinda Medley For Being ‘Mean’ To Her
Jill Zarin recently shared that Medley was mean to her and was confused as to why. During her Instagram story about being blocked, Zarin said, “She was so mean to me. I said, ‘You know, Dorinda, did I do something to you? You’ve been very mean to me,” says the Daily Mail.
“And she said, ‘Bravo, bravo, bravo! We’re not gonna do it on the show. You’re just using me to get on the show.” That’s not nice. I think she’s angry and hurt and coming from a place like this, but I don’t see her being very nice to anybody.”
Jill Zarin also shared the fact that the show doesn’t seem like fun anymore. “I’ve always said I don’t want to do the show if I don’t have fun anymore. And I don’t find it funny anymore,” she said on Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef’s podcast, “I don’t find it funny.
RHONY: Dorinda Says Ramona Is Trying To Paint Her As Angry
Zarin’s not the only one who criticized Dorinda Medley for looking angry. Ramona Singer insisted that Dorinda Medley is targeting her now that Tinsley Mortimer has left the show. But Medley says Singer has another agenda.
“Even today, she’s still trying to promote this thing that makes me angry, I’m this, I’m that – I think… from my point of view, she had a plot and followed it,” she told Celeb.
“Even when she came to the Berkshires [last night’s episode], I was happy,” she said. “She tries to do the happy thing with me, but behind the scenes of the interviews – in light of the day she’s trying to – I’m fully available – I invited her, I welcome her. But her interviews are still – before Berkshires is so angry. It’s almost like a promotional piece. It’s a bit like our moment in time, if you say it enough, it becomes true”.
