Tinsley Mortimer confronts Dorinda Medley over turkey baster comment at ‘RHONY’ reunion

Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer faced off at the “Real Housewives of New York” reunion Thursday over Medley’s cruel crack this season that Mortimer should use a turkey baster to get pregnant.

After confirming that the two women have not spoken since Mortimer left the show mid-season to move to Chicago to be with her fiancé Scott Kluth, the socialite stood up for herself while ripping into Medley.

“The vile turkey baster comment when women who cannot get pregnant and the infertility is such a huge —” she began before Medley cut her off to ask if Mortimer was having problems getting pregnant.

Mortimer, 45, then argued, “I am shamed for wanting a child. I am shamed for not having one.”

Disregarding Mortimer’s comments, Medley, 55, then said she was “surprised” that Mortimer was not yet pregnant because of her expressed desire to have a child.

As the other women began to stop Medley, Mortimer exclaimed, “A turkey baster, that’s IVF, OK? Andy [Cohen]’s baby was from IVF. Would you say the same thing to Andy?”

“RHONY” executive producer and reunion host Andy Cohen welcomed his son, Benjamin Allen Cohen, via surrogate in February 2019.

Medley then said she would apologize to Cohen and shrugged that her comment was simply “a bad joke.”

“You still said it and it will never go away,” Mortimer shot back.

Cohen, meanwhile, called the comment “mean” during the exchange.

During the reunion, Mortimer also claimed that much of Medley’s anger toward her on the show stemmed from Medley’s ex-boyfriend John Mahdessian borrowing money from Mortimer’s fiancé behind Medley’s back.

It seems that Mortimer got the last laugh, as Medley was let go from “RHONY” in August and casting for her replacement is already underway.
