The countdown is officially on: The premiere of Season 11 of The Real Housewives of New York City is less than a week away, and it's shaping up to be the wildest that the Big Apple has ever seen. (Have you caught up on what the ladies have been up to since we last saw them?!)
If you can hardly contain your excitement for the premiere, we have some good news: You can rewatch all of the last season here while you wait for their return. And in the meantime, we're revisiting some of the best moments from our favorite NYC 'Wives. We've already taken a look back at Ramona Singer's best tongue-tied flubs and Bethenny Frankel's realest moments, so now it's only fitting that we focus our attention on another spitfire: Dorinda Medley. You really can never predict what the entrepreneur will do (or say) next, so we've ranked some of her most iconic sassy moments since she joined in Season 7. You're going to want to keep scrolling to relive all of these memorable outbursts.
5. I made a conscious choice not to invite Sonja so we could all have a good time
Kicking off the list, Dorinda's first outburst is a bit of a confusing one. When Luann de Lesseps made a comment about Dorinda's birthday cake, it took about two seconds for Dorinda to lose her cool. "My mother bought this this weekend," she yelled. When Luann continued to explain she thought they were celebrating her birthday, Dorinda continued, "I think everybody is acting very poorly. I put in a big effort here, and this is my home, and I made a conscious choice to not invite Sonja so we could all have a good time! And I think it's a DISGRACE of you people!" To make matters worse, she continued her tirade after grabbing a bottle of liquor and waving it around, yelling, "I cooked all day, I decorated, I did it nice! I'm ashamed!" Confusing? Yes. Entertaining? Absolutely.
4. You were f--king around in the South of France and he married your friend, honey
Brunch is always a good idea... until someone brings up Dorinda's late husband, Richard Medley. When Sonja insinuated that their marital situations were similar, Dorinda got in Sonja's face and yelled, "Your husband left you and my husband died." When Sonja wouldn't let the matter go, Dorinda got even closer to her face, screaming, "Don't you DARE compare your f--king marriage to me burying my husband. OK? Because you were f--king around in the South of France and he married your friend, honey."
3. This is not a big act
Bethenny Frankel always knows which of Dorinda's buttons to push to get a reaction, and this moment in Puerto Rico was no exception. When Dorinda started to say she was "scared" when she saw Bethenny topless, Bethenny quipped, "This is all, like, a big act right now." That was enough to set Dorinda off: "No, it's not a big act. This is not an act at all," she yelled. Tinsley Mortimer tried to get them to stop, but it was too late. Dorinda got angrier and angrier as she screamed, "You stop! Don't say that to me. You just show up there, and you said it there." Her voice rose and she continued to yell inaudible things at Bethenny, and to make matters worse, Bethenny and Tinsley stood up and pretended to be directors of Dorinda's meltdown show. (And no, Dorinda didn't find it as funny as they did.)
2. Clip! Clip! Clip! Clip!
While the ladies were out to dinner, Sonja's Tipsy Girl brand became the topic of conversation. When Sonja claimed that Dorinda wanted to do Tipsy Girl instead, she yelled, "You better back that s--t up right now." Well, Sonja didn't back it up, and soon the whole restaurant watched as Dorinda lost her composure. First, she claimed that Sonja was actually bankrupt, and then she resorted to yelling "Clip!" as she clipped her fingers in the air toward Sonja's mouth. Carole Radziwill summed it up best: "This is a safari. They're animals."
1. Put an E-ZPass on that vagina
Of course, Dorinda's very best outburst happened during another explosive fight with Sonja. After a few minutes of heated banter at the dinner table, Dorinda snarked, "You know what? Why don't you stop getting vaginal rejuvenation and put an E-ZPass on your vagina for that Holland Tunnel." (For the record, Sonja didn't seem to hurt by this accusation.)
Press play on the clip above to rewatch these moments and to see even more of Dorinda's best outbursts. Then, watch the trailer for Season 11 of The Real Housewives of New York City, which premieres on March 6 at 9/8c, below.
