After this year’s Berkshires birthday weekend, Dorinda Medley may not invite some of us back. She says herself that she has a very high tolerance for unruly guests, but I think the way Ramona Singertreated her home tipped Dorinda over the edge. Remember last week when Dorinda’s house filled with smoke because the girls started a fire in a non-working fireplace? She took that in stride. Then Ramona spilled gravy all over one of Dorinda’s dining room chairs. Again, Dorinda was gracious. Even after Ramona wrecked her guest room, Dorinda tried to calmly explain to Ramona what had happened and how it made her feel. When Dorinda says she feels depressed, that’s worse than if she were angry. She was truly hurt by Ramona’s behavior and her destructiveness. Ramona needs to apologize to Dorinda, but this time, apologies might not be enough.
I was glad to be back in New York with Tom, and we had a great time withJill Zarin, Bobby, and the gang at Phillipe. I’m always glad to catch up with Jill, and she and Bobby are coming to the wedding. We were having fun with old friends, and you can see how relaxed Tom and I were. Gossips will gossip, but we don’t let them affect us. Tom was the perfect gentleman about Ramona and the naysayers, and he was more concerned about me than he was about himself. This is the type of man to marry, and I’m glad we found each other. Tom and I left for Palm Beach the next day ready to spend time with family and friends who love us and who want us to be happy.
Until next week, here's to those who wish us well; all the rest can go (bleep) themselves!
