But that’s not what Dorinda does. Well, she does for a little while, but the facade cracks and she blows up...usually with a martini or 6 in her hand. She spews invective and rage to all around her...usually with food and spittle in the corner of her mouth.
Compare and contrast her behavior with Tins. Tins is treated even more rudely than Dorinda, and she responds with more grace and class. She does throw some low level shade...but she never gets sweaty or has food on her face. 😉
Further, Dorinda sits and eats like a truck driver. Mileage varies, but Dorinda does not exhibit class or manners for any discernible length of time in my book.
Frankly, none of these OG shrews has any real class or refinement. Falling into bushes and calling someone a fuck doll are about as vulgar and unrefined as it gets. Plus, none of them should ever let themselves be filmed eating. They shovel food in their mouths and chew like horses. Sonja, Ramona and Beth all have shown themselves to be incredibly coarse, boorish and low brow. In the beginning, Luanne’s behavior was generally more elevated, but her arrogance, snobbery, and entitlent have increasingly revealed themselves over the years to maker her insufferable now. And her drunken behavior have just lowered her down to the level of the others.
I’m not a fan of Barbara, but I can’t really see how she is coarser or rougher than the rest of the old timers. Sure, she is not packaged as well as the others, but her behavior is certainly on par with the group as a whole.
