On the latest episode of the Real Housewives of New York City, LuAnn de Lesseps was just a few weeks past her first rehab stint when she called out her co-star Dorinda Medley for having a drinking problem. But not only does de Lesseps think Medley has some issues, she also doesn’t think she is owning up to them, and the Countess hopes “that she takes a look at herself.”
According to OK! Magazine, de Lesseps comments came after she and Medley got into a fight, and Medley told de Lesseps to “drink more and get arrested,” referring to de Lesseps’ Christmas Eve arrest for drunk and disorderly conduct plus assault on a police officer.
Medley apologized multiple times, but de Lesseps wasn’t interested in just words.

“I know Dorinda feels the need to apologize over and over again, but I don’t need a fake apology,” de Lesseps said. “Show me. Show me that you’re doing something about the drinking problem. I feel bad about people that can’t cop to the bad behavior.”
De Lesseps went on to say that she hopes Medley will realize that she needs to take care of her problem and get help. She added that it is hard to ignore Medley’s drunken attacks when it is your friend who is gunning for you.
After shooting for the current season ended, de Lesseps ended up back in rehab for the second time after admitting that it was hard to stay sober. She also missed the season ten reunion which the rest of the cast recently shot with host Andy Cohen.
Sonja Morgan said that she stayed up late the night before, so she could catch up on all of this season’s episodes. She revealed that it was surprising for her to hear what some of the other women were saying in other rooms when she wasn’t around, but that is what makes reunions so exciting.
If @DorindaMedley doesn’t realize she’s an abusive drunk, she’s absolutely delusional! @CountessLuann wasn’t trying to preach sobriety, she was seeing the drunk beast starting to emerge. I would definitely avoid her. #RHONY

Medley said that they finished filming the season in March, and when she watches the episodes again four months later, she realized it creates a bit of distance. However, she believes that most of the girls really do like each other, and if there is something that does need to be worked out, she hopes it happens at the reunion, and everyone leaves with hugs or handshakes.
Tinsley Mortimer revealed that reunions are scary, but since this is her second one she feels more prepared this time around. Meanwhile, Ramona Singer says she was calm before filming the reunion, but that could be because she wasn’t on the hot seat this year.
Since leaving rehab for the second time, LuAnn de Lesseps has returned to her successful cabaret show.
New episodes of the Real Housewives of New York City air Wednesday nights on Bravo.
