Oftentimes, the aftermath of a Real Housewives trip is just as dramatic as the vacay itself. That's certainly the case with The Real Housewives of New York City Berkshires trip. Not only did Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel find themselves in one of their most heated moments ever, but Dorinda Medley also wasn't too happy with Ramona after her stay at Blue Stone Manor was over. The RHONY mom was upset that Ramona had taken down the production lights that were taped on the walls in the room she was staying in, ripping off some of the paint in the process.
Dorinda expressed how unhappy she was with Ramona after the gang returned to the Big Apple, and she later explained what really upset her about the situation during a recent interview with TooFab. "Here’s the thing about The Berkshires – it’s not just my home, it really is my legacy," she said. "It’s really something that, you know, if Richard had lived, it would really be my home full time. We really built that place to retire there and spend most of our time there. I put all of my hopes and dreams into that place, and now that Richard is no longer with us, I cherish the place. I mean, I treat it with the utmost respect, like I would anyone else’s house."
So it really wasn't about the paint at all for Dorinda. "I think the thing that was most hurtful is she just ignored it. She acted like it was no big deal. That’s what hurt me," Dorinda told TooFab. "To ignore it and not acknowledge it and demean it and treat it like I’m making a big deal of it, that’s what hurt."
Ramona said during Wednesday night's Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that she took down the lights the production team had taped to the walls because it was around three o'clock in the morning and she wanted to go to sleep. "Well, actually, I didn't trash. Production left up these very heavy lights, the size of, like, what you would see at a football field. And even when they do lights in my house, they take them down and they strip off the paint. So some of the paint got stripped off," Ramona explained. "It upset her because her husband had left her that home. But they did a whole brand-new paint job."
However, Dorinda didn't appear to be satisfied with Ramona's explanation. She tweeted during WWHL, telling Ramona to "own up" to the fact that "she ruined the room I love" and that she should apologize.
Even Housewives outside of NYC are chiming in on the beef. Ramona received some support from Tamra Judge during Wednesday's WWHL After Show. "I got a text from Tamra: 'Ramona, this happens to me all the time. Production's lights tear down the paint from my walls,'" Ramona read aloud from her phone.
Tamra also tweeted a similar sentiment.
Well, it looks like this bit of Berkshires drama is far from over, and we can't wait to see what happens next.
For now, get a sneak peek of what's to come on RHONY on Wednesday at 9/8c, below.
