If you thought the reunion special for season eight of The Real Housewives of New York City was a bitter affair that left the ladies reeling once cameras stopped rolling on the marathon of a day—well, you'd be right.
"I don't know if you remember last reunion, we all sort of felt very good about it and kind of got up, walked away, and we all went for dinner. It wasn't like that this season," Dorinda Medley told E! News at the premiere of Oxygen's new series Strut, just days before part three of the dramatic special was set to air. "Let's just say none of us had dinner afterwards together. We were all physically, emotionally, spiritually drained. I literally slept for two days afterwards."
So what can we expect from the final hour after the first two had everyone at each other's throats? "There's more of the same, I have to say, and there's more of me trying to be positive and stick up and point out what's good and bad," Dorinda said. "There's a lot of hurtful things that have been said this reunion. A lot of horrible things that have been said this reunion. I'm just trying to say, 'What's going on here? What are you trying to say? Why was it handled this way?' I have been a bit of a mediator this season, don't you think?"
According to Ramona Singer, however, things won't be quite as chaotic as they've been the past two weeks. "I think at least part three maybe becomes a little more settled and not so off the wall," she told us. "And I think viewers will be ready and waiting for that because the first two reunions, part one and part two, were pretty intense."
That's putting it mildly, Ramona.
