Dorinda Medley has been a fan-favorite housewife for a very long time. But the ongoing Season 12 of 'Real Housewives of New York' has shown us a completely different side of the housewife. She has been constantly bullying and picking on her fellow housewife Tinsley Mortimer. Whenever anybody questions her behavior, she either lashes out at them or breaks down completely saying that she is grieving the loss of her husband, Richard, or dealing with her recent breakup from longtime boyfriend John Mahdessian. 

The previous episode saw Dorinda going after Tinsley pretty hard. Poor Tinsley was left so scarred by her encounter with Dorinda that she completely broke down. All the housewives, especially Leah McSweeney and Ramona Singer, felt that Dorinda's behavior towards Tinsley was unacceptable and rather harsh. So, on the latest episode of 'RHONY', we saw the OG housewife call out Dorinda for picking on Tinsley. When Ramona points out that Dorinda lashes out at people whenever she is going through a tough time, and her picking on Tinsley could be due to that, Dorinda wasn't too pleased with her fellow housewife's observations.

In a classic case of deflection, Dorinda flips everything and pins it on Ramona. Dorinda points out that Ramona would know because she too is guilty of the same behavior and accuses Ramona of lashing out at people too. Fans weren't pleased when they saw Dorinda refuse to take accountability of her actions, and instead deflecting everything on Ramona. A fan tweeted, "I really thought after the last few seasons, Dorinda would see her behavior on tv and try to do better. But nope. Still takes no accountability, zero self reflection and humility #RHONY." Another fan wrote, "Dorinda rather drag people under the bus than TAKE ACCOUNTABILITY. #rhony." One more said, "Dorinda has no accountability or her own behavior. She is constantly rude, condescending and down right nasty to people and thinks she's justified to act this way. Unbelievable. #RHONY."


Several fans were surprised when they found themselves siding with Ramona. A fan shared, "Never thought I would say I like Ramona more than Dorinda! But this season Dorinda is a miserable migraine. #rhony #rhonyc." Another fan expressed, "Ramona actually took accountability for her actions and she brought up Dorinda’s behavior w/ an example and Dorinda turned it around #RHONY." Another said, "Until Dorinda takes accountability for her actions, she can go to hell. And I need Ramona to take her there. #rhony."

 ‘Real Housewives of New York’ Season 12 airs every Thursday at 9/8c only on Bravo.
