This season's The Real Housewives of New York City reunion has been filled with so many revelations, from makeups to breakups, to new relationships getting even stronger to the final days of others. And we haven't even gotten to Part 3 of this season's reunion yet.

But Dorinda Medley has already cast her vote for the most surprising part of this season's reunion, which she revealed during The Real Housewives Awards Nomination Special live on Facebook Monday. "Well, I think the thing that I was very much taken aback by is by how difficult it was for Bethenny [Frankel] and how much difficulty she's been going through in her personal life because she keeps it together. She, as we all know, she works like a dog, she's a mother, and she really has been going through some pretty difficult stuff," Dorinda said. "And I felt kind of sad that I didn't know it so I could have reached out to her more. You know, I'm always quite careful about not overstepping, but it took me aback how emotional she got by it. It made me emotional."

And that wasn't the only tea Dorinda spilled as she helped announce the nominees for this year's The Real Housewives Awards with the hosts of The Daily Dish Podcast, Megan Segura and Rachael Roberts. The RHONY mom dished on everything from Carole Radziwill's future with Adam Kenworthy to the timeless beauty of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, all while breaking down the buzziest Real Housewives moments of the year, which are honored in this year's awards.
