Dorinda Medley instantly got along with her co-stars when she joined Real Housewives of New York, as her hysterical one-liners and friendly demeanor made her a favorite among her castmates and fans.

But although Medley wasn’t the center of the drama in the beginning, that all changed once the ladies embarked on a five-day getaway to Turks and Caicos!

The show’s new girl exclusively revealed to how she got along so well with her co-stars in the beginning and what caused her RHONY vacation blowout with co-star Heather Thomson.

“We’ve been a good support system to each other over the years,” Medley said of her co-stars, many of whom she’s known for years. “It’s been a very Sex and the City moment this season and I think people feel that.”

She added that for the first time, viewers “really want to come back and be involved in it.”

“People are like, ‘I want to tune in to see what’s happening in that world. New York is cool again. These are real women doing real things,’” she explained.

Despite the strong relationships that have formed, Medley got into an argument with Thomson in a recent episode when she felt Thomson ignored her while walking to a restaurant.

“I see a very different side to her,” Medley said of Thomson, who she met in the Berkshires before the season began. “We were very different in the Berkshires. It was kind of like a summer romance we had, but I think this environment brought out different personalities that I think both of us didn’t expect.”

Although Medley will continue to be on the outs with her co-star in upcoming episodes, she has yet to brawl with Bethenny Frankel, who has been involved in most of the season's fights.

“Bethenny at first is definitely a little bit overwhelming,” Medley said. “ She’s very strong, she’s very direct. If she likes you, she likes you. If she doesn’t, she doesn’t. I always say being with Bethenny is like peeling an onion. You got to do it slowly and carefully, and then she’s fine.”

Medley also continues to be on good terms with best friend Ramona Singer, as she insisted that the show will never come between them.

“Ramona has been through so much with me… especially this last journey when my husband was not well and when he passed,” she said of her friend of 20 years. “Once you’ve been through that kind of experience together, reality TV is nothing. These are small things, they're not big picture. So I think we’ll be fine. We’ll always be fine.”
