Where RHONY Season 10's Biggest Feuds Stand Now

After 19 episodes of mayhem, The Real Housewives Of New York City season 10 has come to a close. But the Bravo series' 2018 run did not go out like a lamb. Someone ran out of a party after throwing lots of evening gown-related shade. Someone else confronted Bethenny Frankel (it's not a RHONY party if no one confronts Bethenny Frankel). And, a few closing cards suggested certain feuds haven't ended in the five months since filming wrapped.
It's impossible to watch season-ender “Life Is a Cabaret” without wondering how these fraying friendships have fared since the episode filmed in late February. Thankfully, we have social media, Watch What Happens Live appearances, and the juicy reunion special trailer to help figure out the answers to our most burning New York questions.
So keep reading to find out who's still feuding with whom, and who might be reconciling sometime soon. Because, who wants to wait for the last moments of the reunion — which is three weeks away — to find out?

Bethenny Frankel & Carole Radziwill

After years of the wildly boring Bethenny Frankel vs. Ramona Singer feud anchoring RHONY, season 10 offered up some true emotional melodrama. Following seasons of BFF-dom, an inexplicable rift tore apart Frankel and Carole Radziwill’s friendship, leading to countless blinking dinners where both women tried to figure out the problem.

Frankel finally fully accepts in the finale that Radziwill is seemingly “just not that into her.” This realization gives the former BFFs space to have a normal conversation in one of their last scenes of the finale, closing out season 10 with a hug. Radziwill, who recently announced her New York exit, even tells Frankel, “I really care about you.”

Yet, the pair took jabs at each other on Twitter throughout the season, with Frankel going so far as to suggest Radziwill didn’t choose to leave RHONY — she was fired. The reunion trailer also hints Carole and Bethenny will go head-to-head once last time over this past season.

Yet, a relationship patch-up might still be possible. When a fan asked if Radziwill would reach out to Frankel over the death of her on-again, off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields, Radziwill responded, “I just heard the news. Thank you. Of course[,] that's awful to suggest otherwise.”

Bethenny Frankel & Ramona Singer

Although the Frankel-Radziwill mayhem dominated season 10, RHONY can’t survive without a few flare-ups between Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer. We were reminded of that in finale “Life Is a Cabaret” when Singer barges into Frankel and Radziwill’s first friendly conversation in weeks and refuses to leave. Instead, she demands to know why Frankel didn’t go to her skincare launch party from the previous episode. Frankel tells her to make an appointment and refuses to explain herself.

Singer shoots back, “You’re really disappointing as a woman,” and runs off. Finally, Radziwill tells Singer to “lower her expectations” of Frankel, and her life will improve. As Singer’s closing card confirms, that’s exactly what she has done since filming wrapped... except for the time in the reunion preview where she accuses Frankel of having “fake tits.”

On Frankel’s side, it’s clear she still stands by her decision to ignore Singer’s alleged new business, as she tweeted earlier this month of it, “It doesn’t exist. And as a business woman, I am done allowing people to pretend business is easy or have pretend parties to launch products that are fairytales. Watch cartoons if you want fantasy.”

Luann de Lesseps & Dorinda Medley

Luann de Lesseps’ friendship with longtime best friend Dorinda Medley quickly disintegrated in Cartagena, Colombia, when Medley verbally attacked the Countess for telling her she was “turning.” Insults included “Why don't you drink some more wine and get arrested, honey?” and “I didn't get a mug shot over it.” De Lesseps clearly thought the argument was a Medley problem, while Medley believed blame should be split down the middle.

The finale seemed to be the final straw for these two, as de Lesseps doesn't invite Medley’s boyfriend John Mahdessian to the season-closing cabaret show or the after party on the day of the performance (when Medley asked). Tinsley Mortimer’s coupon king boyfriend Scott Kluth does, however, get an invite day-of. All of this drama devolves into Medley either repeatedly yelling “Jovani,” over some free clothing she scored de Lesseps, or bringing up Kluth’s invite.

Well, things have not improved in the months since filming ended. As Medley’s closing card confirms, she and the Countess are still estranged, over five months later. We’ve seen proof of this on Watch What Happens Live, as just this month, Medley defended her Cartagena blow up. She said of de Lesseps, “Luann, at that point — especially [considering] that old saying, 'If you knew then what you know now' — wasn't in a position to be lecturing me, alright? She really wasn't."

De Lesseps has yet to throw any of her own jabs, as she returned to rehab in late July.

Sonja Morgan & Team No Slippers

During one of season 10’s more bizarre arguments, it was questioned whether Sonja Morgan, who has been divorced from ex-husband John Adams Morgan for over a decade, should feature the Morgan family crest in her shoe collection. Dorinda Medley, backed by Carole Radziwill, came down hard against the idea, creating a feud literally about slip-on shoes.

Well, the feud continues on, although Morgan suspects more issues are afoot than mere fashion drama. During the performer's requisite WWHL appearance, Morgan said of Medley, “I think that Dorinda's just lashing out in general … I'm more concerned about us caring more about Dorinda and what's going on with her really, as I've thought it through. I don't think she really means to, you know, the things that she said about [my family]. What does she know about my family?"

Radziwill didn’t exactly receive the same kid glove treatment, as Morgan said of her other co-star, "In Ireland, they say, 'The girl has lost the run of herself!'" Talk about globe-trotting shade.

Tinsley Mortimer Vs. Her Love Life

As our real-life Eloise, Tinsley Mortimer, said throughout season 10, she just wants to set up a real home with boyfriend Scott Kluth. Sadly, that still hasn’t happened, as the pair are in the throes of an on-again, off-again relationship.

Yet, Kluth rang in his birthday this week with none other than Mortimer. So, there is still hope here.
