After Sonja shockingly suggested that her controversial divorce from John A. Morgan was similar to the end of Dorinda’s marriage, which ended only due to Richard Medley‘ tragic death in 2011, Carole shared a surprising story suggesting that Sonja and John cheated on one another during their marriage.
“Here’s a story: A 30-year-old restaurant hostess marries a wealthy man 25 years her senior. They love each other. Deeply. They have a kid. They buy a home, they travel the world, and host parties on yachts. Six years go by, then eight, then 10. The older man’s stories start to dull. The young pretty wife gets restless. Their eyes, once gazed longingly at each other, start to wander. Their marriage is marked by infidelities on both sides until one files for divorce,” she wrote in her Bravo blog. “It’s not so shocking, is it? This story is played out countless times a year across the country. To talk about a marriage over a decade later, as though you had no hand in its demise, is frustrating for those who’ve had to listen to the historical re-write.”
Carole certainly hinted that Sonja and John were unfaithful to one another during their marriage but because she failed to mention them by name in her “story,” her words cannot be taken as a confirmation.
That said, Carole made it perfectly clear that Sonja’s divorce was a far cry from the heartache Dorinda was forced to endure due to her husband’s untimely passing.
“It is definitely not the same as burying a husband—not even close,” Carole noted. “Signing a divorce document, after you’ve racked up lawyers’ bills fighting over who gets the sconces, is not like signing a death certificate. It’s not like having to make life and death decisions when a doctor tells you there is little left to do but hope and pray.”
As The Real Housewives of New York City fans well know, Carole lost her own husband, Prince Anthony Radziwill, after a 10-year battle with cancer following just five years of marriage. So, when it comes to Dorinda’s comments about her late husband, she is extremely empathetic and doesn’t feel she should be criticized in any sense for mentioning his name.
“This is what we all do—we talk about our loved ones who’ve passed on to keep their memory alive. We tell stories to children, grandkids, and friends. Especially young deaths—those who’ve died before the natural life cycle has ended. We even commemorate the day with flowers or a visit to the grave,” she explained.
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
