Dorinda Medley lashes out at Vicki Gunvalson for ‘taste’, ‘manners’ and men

Dorinda Medley went over there

The reality star called out Vicki Gunvalson for dating “people who pretend to have cancer” on the latest episode of her SiriusXM podcast, “Make It Nice”.

“Like, you may not like my life, but I also don’t date people who pretend to have cancer, you know what I mean?” she said, referring to Gunvalson’s ex Brooks Ayers, who forged medical records to make it look like he was a cancer patient in City of Hope.

Medley continued to berate Gunvalson for later dating Steve Lodge, who left her for his now-wife, Janis Carlson.

“I also don’t date men who then leave you for women half their age,” she said. “If you want to get mean, I’ll get mean.”

Medley’s comments come after Gunvalson, 60, slammed her “old” home at Blue Stone Manor while discussing whereabouts for “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Ex-Wives Club.”

The “Real Housewives of New York City” alum acknowledged that her home may be old, but prestigious enough to be included in “Architectural Digest” and built by famed architect Stanford White.

“Well, listen, this is a girl who thinks she’s dancing on dirty tables in a bar in Puerto Vallarta [or] whatever that place is called, it’s fun,” Medley, 57, said on her podcast. “So, I mean, you can’t really have people who don’t have taste understand taste.”

She added: “You have to have a level of taste to understand a house like Blue Stone Manor, and you have to understand a lifestyle.”

Medley’s comments come after Gunvalson said she would be “miserable” living at Blue Stone Manor on a Bravo Instagram Live on Wednesday.

Medley argued that regardless of Gunvalson’s thoughts about her home, she should at least be respectful.

“She was a guest in my house. So whatever she thinks, it just goes to show that she really has no real manners. I would never say anything bad about her house,’ she exclaimed.

“It’s not my taste, but, you know, you, if you come as a guest in someone’s home, be merciful. That’s what I think. And also, you know, jealousy is a terrible thing.”

Medley also believes that Gunvalson may be unhappy and claims she doesn’t like it when people get it right.

“Sometimes when you’re unhappy…and you see someone so happy and doing so well, they just can’t stand it,” Medley said.

Medley concluded by saying that Gunvalson “opened a can of worms.” And when asked whether this means ‘war’, she answered without hesitation: ‘Yes’.

Gunvalson hasn’t discussed Medley’s latest podcast episode yet. She did not immediately respond to Vidak For Congress’s request for comment.

“The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Ex-Wives Club” premieres on Peacock on June 23.
