Dorinda Medley Teases 'RHUGT' Fights, Tears, & A Phaedra Friendship

Obviously we know that the Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Season 1 is coming to Peacock November 18, and we're all excited. But. I have to tell you. RHUGT Season 2, featuring my personal faves Dorinda Medley, Phaedra Parks, and Tamra Judge can't come soon enough. While we wait for its winter premiere (I predict February), I got the chance to speak with Dorinda about Girls Trip 2.0, and I am ready to be back at Bluestone Manor.

Eight housewives (Jill Zarin, Tamra Judge, Phaedra Parks, Vicki Gunvalson, Eva Marcille Sterling, Brandi Glanville, and Taylor Armstrong) were sequestered at Dorinda's Berkshires home in Massachusetts for eight straight days in late September, 2021, and cameras were a rolling.

So off the bat, of course I had to know, what was it like being under one roof with Vicki Gunvalson?

"Well, listen," Dorinda starts, "The [Housewives] were there for eight days. And I want people to remember when they are watching it, I’ve been in COVID-mode. I’ve had no one up there. My life has literally been, my parents and Hannah, and the 18-acres of Bluestone Manor. And I tend to be a little bit of a control freak."

"It was a lot," she says.

We've seen this "control freak" come out of her first hand. She's very protective of this house – she described it to me as a "living, breathing thing" – and it means a lot to her. When the RHONY women made their annual trek for Christmas to Bluestone Manor, we got the iconic Season 8 control freak out of "I decorated, I cooked, I made it nice!" And never forget that time Ramona Singer ripped some of the paint off the walls when taking the production lights down from her Bluestone bedroom, and Dorinda got so upset. She loves this house more than anything.
