Dorinda Medley Slams Sonja Morgan On Twitter & Fans are Not Impressed

Is it us or is Dorinda taking this whole thing a little too far?

These two just can’t seem to leave it on camera! After a series of tweets addressing her beef with Dorinda Medley this season on Real Housewives of New York, Sonja Morgan was taken to school by the queen of one-liners herself.

The drama started when Sonja addressed a fan who tweeted her support of Sonja in her feud with fellow RHONY castmember, Dorinda Medley. If you watch the show regularly you’ll remember that Dorinda lashed out at Sonja after having enough of Sonja bemoaning her experience as a divorcée.

Dorinda, who must have been venting YEARS of pent up frustration, yelled at Sonja and said that her divorce could not compare to Dorinda’s experience as a widow. But apparently, not everybody agrees with Dorinda’s assessment.

“I just watched last episode again and Dorinda is really the one [that] started comparing divorce and death,” Twitter user, Lisa Renaud, writes. “And she’s the one that was screaming at Sonja. Then when she [told] the story over the phone to Carol [sic] she lied.”

Sonja was clearly checking the #RHONY hashtag because she re-tweeted Lisa’s message and added that after Dorinda slammed her on the show, she started rumors about Sonja’s former marriage.



Sonja followed up her response with more tweets saying that she never tried to compare her divorce to Dorinda losing her husband (Dorinda’s husband, Richard, died in November of 2011) and in an attempt to prove her propriety (lol), she said that she never spread the “rumors” that she had heard about Dorinda and Richard’s marriage. Okay, but that’s catty, no?

Things really got off the rails when Sonja started talking about how hard it will be when her ex-husband dies. Responding to a fan who both divorced and lost her late husband, Sonja sort of made it weird and said that “I will be devastated when my ex passes as well.”



“We had a wonderful marriage,” she adds, “& for reasons neither of us could control the bottom fell out.” Lest we forget, both Sonja and her ex-husband, John, have been rumored to have cheated during the marriage.

Fellow RHOHY castmember, Carole Radziwill, paints a different picture of Sonja and John’s marriage that brings us some clarity. On her Bravo blog, Carole tells the tale of a “30-year-old restaurant hostess” who marries a wealthy man “25 years her senior.”

“Here’s a story: A 30-year-old restaurant hostess marries a wealthy man 25 years her senior. They love each other. Deeply. They have a kid. They buy a home, they travel the world, and host parties on yachts. Six years go by, then eight, then 10. The older man’s stories start to dull. The young pretty wife gets restless. Their eyes, once gazed longingly at each other, start to wander. Their marriage is marked by infidelities on both sides until one files for divorce. It’s not so shocking, is it? This story is played out countless times a year across the country. To talk about a marriage over a decade later, as though you had no hand in its demise, is frustrating for those who’ve had to listen to the historical re-write.”


Considering Carole’s take on the situation, perhaps it should not have surprised us that Dorinda could not take Sonja’s comments in stride. Responding to Sonja’s tweet, Dorinda writes, “His other three ex-wives and his current wife of 8 years will be devastated as well.”






While some fans loved seeing Sonja get bodied for her cringe-y statement, not everyone was ready to give Dorinda her props.



One Twitter user responded to Dorinda, saying that as a widow, Sonja’s divorce, “doesn’t preclude [her] from feeling her different type of loss profoundly.” She asks,”[Can] only widows can grieve the loss of a relationship?”

However, Dorinda was having a “I said, what I said” moment and took the fan to task. “I too divorced in 2005 [it was] very different get it straight!”

Another fan responded to Dorinda, pointing out that she was perhaps being mean.



But Dorinda stuck to her guns, flippantly saying that “realization hurts.” Not to use early aughts terminology, but is Dorinda a BAMF?

There were some fans who cheered Dorinda’s smackdown online. But it seems to us that Dorinda’s convictions might have lost her some fanfare.
