Season 10 of The Real Housewives of New York City ended with a bang. Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley had a season-ending spat over whether or not Dorinda's longtime boyfriend John Mahdessian actually received an invite to the Countess' cabaret show. This seemed to be the final nail in the coffin of the end of the RHONY ladies' friendship.
But this now-iconic confrontation almost didn't happen at all. Dorinda had actually planned on leaving the post-cabaret party before Luann arrived, as we saw during the episode. Before she could make it to the door, she stopped to say hi to Bridget Everett, who performed in Luann's show. Soon enough, Luann arrived, and, well, we all saw what happened next.
So would things have been different for Luann, Dorinda, and the whole RHONY-verse if Bridget hadn't stopped Dorinda at that time? Bridget reflected on the moment during Wednesday night's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. "Let me tell you what, God is good, and I'm an atheist. But I saw Dorinda, and you come together with people and you don't know why. But there's a divine intervention, and that was what happened that night," she said. "And I don't care about what would have happened; I'm happy about what did happen."
Bridget also said that she "had no idea" that all of that drama was happening around her at Luann's party. "I just felt like Dorinda and I were gonna ride off into the sunset," she joked on WWHL.
As for whether Bridget was aware of Dorinda's exclamations of "Jovani!" during the cabaret show, she's not telling. "Listen, Andy [Cohen], all I'm gonna say is I love those women, and whatever they do, I'm here for it," she said.
