'Real Housewives of New York City': Dorinda continues to bully Tinsley, fans dish on why she's so 'bitter'
The latest episode of 'Real Housewives of New York City' featured Dorinda going all guns and daggers on her fellow housewife — Tinsley Mortimer. In the past, Dorinda's difference with Tinsley stemmed from her feeling that Tinsley wasn't being completely honest and transparent about her life and relationships. This for some reason kept triggering Dorinda, who cornered Tinsley at every chance she got and forced her to discuss her life. In the latest episode, when Tinsley learns about Dorinda's breakup through a gossip website article, she feels like Dorinda is being a hypocrite because the group learned about the breakup through a website instead of directly from Dorinda when all she does is preach about being open and honest.
So, when Tinsley points it out to Dorinda, instead of taking some time to reflect on the situation, Dorinda just snaps at Tinsley. She begins yelling at Tinsley and says that the chewing gum in her mouth lasts longer than Tinsley's relationships. She also makes Tinsley cry by calling her "invisible". When Tinsley tries pointing out that Dorinda was being a bully to her, the housewife refuses to acknowledge Tinsley's words by shouting and continuing to accuse Tinsley of dating men for sponsoring her lifestyle. Tinsley finally snaps and walks away in tears, while Dorinda continues lashing out at Tinsley while talking to other housewives.
Despite Dorinda's claims that she is not interested in Tinsley, she talks quite a bit about the former model even when she isn't around. Ramona Singer tries decoding why Dorinda might be picking on Tinsley. According to Ramona, Dorinda is still grieving the loss of her husband Richard Medley and misses the way he took care of her and pampered her, and Tinsley is getting all that love and attention from the man she is dating (Bruce). So Dorinda might be jealous of Tinsley and is acting out by picking on her.
Fans seem to agree with Ramona's analysis of why Dorinda is picking on Tinsley. A fan tweeted, "Dorinda is miserable jealous and bitter! Tinsley is living care free like she used to and she can’t take it! #RHONY." Another fan wrote, "Dorinda and all the women are all just jealous of Tinsley just she’s younger, prettier and even richer than most of them. #RHONY."
"This is the way I see it: Dorinda does not respect Tinsley because she feels that Tins has had no 'real' adversity in her life, no loss, no illness, spoiled rich girl. Until Dorinda sees Tins as a peer, she will continue to disrespect her. #RHONY," pointed out a fan. Another fan shared, "Dorinda is hurting. And hurt people hurt people. She’s taking ALL of her frustration out on Tinsley because Tinsley is a easy mark. #rhony."
