Tinsley Reacts to Luann de Lesseps’ Relapse

Dorinda Medley has been one of Luann de Lesseps' biggest supporters this season of The Real Housewives of New York City as she dealt with the end of her marriage to Tom D'Agostino, her arrest, and her stay in rehab. So when Dorinda heard the news that Luann had returned to seek help at an alcohol treatment center, she was of course incredibly concerned for her friend.

Dorinda spoke to The Daily Dish while getting ready to film the RHONY Season 10 reunion and shared that she heard the news about Luann at the same time everyone else did earlier this week. "I literally cried over it. I cried when I heard," Dorinda said. "I wrote her a text, a quick text, but I haven't heard back, so I'm just gonna pray for her, think about her. She's here in thought."

She also added about Luann not attending this season's reunion, "I really feel bad that Lu's not gonna be there."

Luann recently checked herself back into rehab six months after she spent 21 days at an alcohol treatment center in January. She did not attend the RHONY Season 10 reunion taping. "It's so sad that she's not here. I feel so badly for her. I really had no idea that it is as serious, I guess, as it is, and I feel really sad for her, and I hope she gets well. And she's taking obviously the right steps to do so," Tinsley Mortimer told The Daily Dish prior to filming the reunion. "A relapse happens all the time and is part of sort of the program of it. So we'll see, and hopefully she can get out of it, be happy, and be fine."
