It's sure going to take some time to recover from all of the revelations and drama we've experienced during the first two parts of this season's The Real Housewives of New York City reunion. And with the third and final installment set to air Wednesday night at 9/8c, who knows what could happen?
Even though this season's reunion taped in July, Ramona Singer and Dorinda Medley are still reeling from it. "I think it was pretty hairy, especially the second [part]," Ramona said of the sit-down when The Daily Dish caught up with her at the premiere of Oxygen's Strut in New York on Monday. "It was definitely off the charts, I think."
You would expect that after being a part of seven RHONY reunions before, Ramona wouldn't be fazed by anything, but she said there were parts of this sit-down that even she was taken aback by. "I think it was definitely the most intense. I think there was a lot of things that came out that people were surprised, just the whole situation with Luann [de Lesseps] and [her fiancé] Tom [D'Agostino]'s honesty about his relationships with other fellow friends," she said. "I didn't appreciate that Luann was all of a sudden trying to kill the messenger. Before she was thankful that Bethenny [Frankel] told her about the incident with this other woman. And then all of a sudden, she resented her. I mean, listen, you're supposed to let people know and do with the information what you want."
But really, Ramona just wants everyone to get along, as we've seen her take on more of a peacemaker role this season of RHONY. "I think I'm on a different path now. Everyone changes and evolves, and I'm definitely a different person. I think because I went through a tough time with my divorce, I figure, why can't we just get along, girls? So yeah, I think I'm still going to be on that path, but we'll see," she explained. "I think I have a different attitude toward things. And it definitely resonates in the way I handle things and speak. And I think the viewers see that and like it."
These New Yorkers seem to need a peacemaker after this year's reunion, according to Dorinda. "Last year's reunion was my first. It was funny, I felt like at the end of it, we all had resolution. I felt like we're like, 'OK, that happened, but we can deal with it.' We all actually had dinner together and things, but I really felt this year, people were damaged, and we really just wanted to get home and get into bed and make it go away," she told The Daily Dish on the red carpet of the Strut premiere. "So it's really funny, hoping that we all come back next year, hoping that we all get back to next season and have some resolution and re-bond and heal. That's what I'm hoping for."
We'll see what Ramona and Dorinda mean when Part 3 of the RHONY reunion airs Wednesday at 9/8c. You can already tell there's going to be some Big Apple-sized drama in the below sneak peek.
