All of us have misspoken at one point or another, and I said in an earlier post, I don't think 52 states is a hill to die on, yet she's been called stupid and an idiot. I don't think I defend her. I've said several times in various posts that her behavior is wrong and that I sympathize for what she's going through and what her apparent problems are, but it still doesn't excuse her behavior.
I think she gets piled upon because people just want to hate her for a bunch of scripted bullsh*t. And I think the intense hateful reactions are pretty hypocritical because what is said online is a hundred times worse than anything we've seen on this lovely over-produced reality show. I don't believe in fighting hate with hate. I just don't. Doesn't excuse the way we've seen her behave. I'm just not going to hate her for it. I also think a lot of it is fake, including what we see on social. It's all part of the deal.
And I also think that what we've seen on RHoNY is a walk in the park compared to what real life bullying looks like, so enough! (Taylor Armstrong) with the melodrama. I've been through it worse than any of you can possibly conceive of, and I've been in therapy for it most of my adult life. I will never get over it. What we've seen between Dorinda and Tinsley is literally nuhhhhh-thing.
Seriously, in this episode, Dorinda was really perfectly fine and quite reserved save for an awkward moment with Tins when Leah was slashing and burning Ramona's dinner party, but here we have six pages that are half Leah is crazy and half I hate Dorinda the drunk. I mean Dorinda and Tinsley even hugged and kissed hello rather warmly, which was quite nice considering what we've seen in previous episodes. It just doesn't make any sense to me, and Dorinda will never win anything in this court of public opinion, even when she has a good show. And neither will I for that matter 😜 If anyone in the cast was that shattered by on-screen shenanigans, they can grow a set and walk. They don't have to be there if they don't want to be.
