Dorinda Medley Lashes Out at Sonja Morgan over 'Ridiculous' Tipsy Girl Accusations


People.com:
Real Housewives of New York City star Dorinda Medley has certainly lost her temper on Sonja Morgan in the past, calling her a “disgusting, pathetic, delusional fool” (among other things) earlier this season. But on Wednesday’s all-new episode, it was round two as the 52-year-old Berkshires beauty popped her top at Morgan during a group lunch in the Bronx.

The catalyst for their feud was an old topic around the New York Housewives’ circle: Tipsy Girl, the Prosecco Morgan launched last year that drew the ire of Skinnygirl mogul Bethenny Frankel at the time.

“They call it a cheater brand,” Frankel told Morgan when she first heard about it in an epic battle that lasted most of last season. “I’m completely insulted and I don’t want anything to do with you.”

But if Morgan was going down, she wasn’t going down alone.

At the show’s season 8 reunion, she mentioned that Ramona Singer had also been aware of the Tipsy Girl name — having been approached to invest in the product by Morgan’s business partner Peter Guimaraes.

Guimaraes has a history on RHONY. As fans may remember, he’s the guy who had collaborated with Singer on AOA Bar & Grill (she’s reportedly cut ties with the property). And as Morgan revealed on Wednesday, he had also been in discussions with Medley to join the Tipsy Girl team.

“Dorinda and Ramona both wanted to do Tipsy Girl,” Morgan, 53, said — claiming Guimaraes had met with Medley’s boyfriend John Mahdessian. “You said you were totally on board. I have the text [message]!”
