On The Real Housewives of New York City, when the ladies gather for a dinner party, Sonja Morgan tells Luann de Lesseps, who’s marrying Sonja’s ex-love of ten years, Tom D’Agostino, “I wouldn’t miss your wedding party if I didn’t have to.” Luann tells Sonja, “You weren’t invited.” That comment is seen as an open door for Dorinda Medley. Dorinda leans in (and not in the Sheryl Sandberg kind of way) and yells at Sonja, “You need an invitation to go to a wedding!”
When Bethenny Frankel pulls up to the party, from the driveway she sees Dorinda standing at the table, arguing with Sonja and calls Carole Radziwill who’s inside. Carole warns Bethenny, “It’s literally a nut house.” Cue to Dorinda asking Sonja if Edie Beale is upstairs and doing Edie’s voice calling Sonja. Edith “Edie” Bouvier Beale was the first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Lee Radziwill (Carole’s former mother-in-law, btw) who lived with her mother in near isolation and eventually poverty in their dilapidated estate in East Hampton, Grey Gardens. They starred in the 1975 documentary, Grey Gardens. The Real Housewives of New York City airs Wednesdays at 9pm on Bravo.
