In the past couple of episodes of Real Housewives of New York City, Bethenny Frankel faced off with Dorinda Medley and her boyfriend John Mahdessian.
But despite the epic battle the played out over two weeks, in a preview for the upcoming episode, Mahdessian still decides to make an unexpected appearance at Frankel's party.
From the start, it's clear that Frankel, 45, isn't thrilled about Mahdessian's attendance — and the dry cleaning king seems just as uncomfortable to be there.
"I would never like to be in John's position," new girl Jules Wainstein, 35, told the cameras. "He has no hope. He has just as much hope as bacteria in the Dead Sea."
"I don't think Bethenny has any intention of being open to John today," Medley pointed out. "She greeted everyone else except John."
"Did you see Dorinda's boyfriend?" she said. "There was like an obstruction in my house. I had to walk around it."
Meanwhile, Medley, 51, tries to coax Mahdessian, 50, to approach Frankel, and he agrees after some hesitation.
"I think it's an opportunity for her to watch him squirm," Medley noted during a confessional. "And on some level, she enjoys that."
Frankel continues her complaining.
"I feel uncomfortable at my own party," she stated to her friends. "Because I have somebody I'm avoiding at my house!"
"I really get the sense that John and Dorinda don't really remember what happened because if they remembered, I don't think that Dorinda would have John come over," Frankel added.
During the battle, Mahdesian accused Frankel of not knowing what love is and that she was jealous of his relationship with Medley.
"You don't know what love is about…" he told her. "You don't have a boyfriend."
Frankel now regrets not telling Medley to leave her man at home.
"Maybe I should have told Dorinda they can't come, but then she wouldn't have come, and I really just should've been honest," Frankel admitted. "I should have said, 'You know what? I'd be a whole lot more comfortable if John weren't here.'"
