Dorinda Says Luann Planned To Drink Again Months After Assault Arrest: ‘She Told Me!’

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Dorinda Medley claimed Luann de Lesseps planned on drinking again just months after she was arrested for drunkenly assaulting a cop.

On Wednesday night’s The Real Housewives of New York, Medley claimed de Lesseps told her directly that she would return to boozing shortly after she came home from rehab.

“She’ll be drinking in three months! She already told me,” Medley shouted out on camera.

As readers know, the Countess checked into rehab for a second time in early July.

The drinking accusations began when de Lesseps critiqued Medley for becoming “aggressive” while drinking margaritas during a dinner in Cartegena, Colombia. Medley reacted by poking fun at de Lesseps’ 2017 arrest, claiming she was the last person who should be giving advice on drinking too much.

“I didn’t get a mug shot over it!” a boozed up Medley shouted while pointing a finger in the Countess’s face.

The heated debate resulted in de Lesseps storming out of the dinner.

“I’m sick to my stomach,” de Lesseps told co-star Bethenny Frankel. “She called me a convict. Her true colors just came out.”

Frankel ultimately took de Lesseps’ side and revealed that she believes Medley is the one with a drinking problem – an accusation she made earlier in the season.

As readers know, de Lesseps skipped a plea conference hearing on Wednesday, July 25 because of her return to rehab.

De Lesseps’ attorney filed documents this week pleading for the judge to sentence her to probation instead of jail time.

Also on the episode, Frankel and Carole Radziwill fought over their broken friendship. Frankel told her former best friend that their relationship was “slowly” eroding.

“I don’t think you really like me,” Frankel said to Radziwill. “Everything is so cool, you’re so cool, you’re just too cool for me.”

Radziwill told the camera she felt she was in an “abusive relationship” with the Skinnygirl founder.

“I can’t have this energy,” Radziwill told Frankel.

The nasty fight between the frenemies continues on next week’s episode. The Real Housewives of New York airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
