Bethenny Frankel: “I Felt Tremendous Compassion For Dorinda During That Dinner And Trip”

Bethenny Frankel is taking to her Bravo Blog to dish on this week's episode of The Real Housewives of New York City. Bethenny Frankel talks about helping Puerto Rico and weighs in on Dorinda Medley's drunken behavior.

Bethenny writes:

"This was a very sensitive week. I am so glad that you were able see the devastation in Puerto Rico.

Perhaps I brought Dorinda because I sensed she needed a change. Had anyone else asked me (Luann did, in fact, ask to come), I certainly would have included them. Dorinda was curious about what I was doing at my birthday party, so I invited her. I’m sure you can understand why this wasn’t a group Housewives activity.

I felt tremendous compassion for Dorinda during that dinner and trip. I realized, while watching, that it triggers me and takes me back to my childhood. I won’t go into much detail, but I have experience with people acting irrationally while under the influence.

This group wasn't judgmental at all. Michael was not only a wealthy real estate developer but a recovering heroin addict as well. He never went to a meeting — he simply stopped and decided to make the change.

Nobody’s perfect. I worked on these missions with people with troubled and checkered pasts, brushes with the law, battles with addiction, lack of meaning in life, terrible divorces, death — you name it. No one was judging Dorinda at all. I simply know that this is becoming a pattern around me, and it makes me uncomfortable.

Charity attracts all walks of life good and bad. Tune in next week!"
