The ladies of Real Housewives of New York try to make a reality show in the middle of America’s hardest-hit city during a pandemic. As they work on that, many people are wondering why things aren’t just popping off like they used to. Could it be because we’ve lost Tinsley Mortimer and Dorinda Medley? Maybe the new additions/generation being added to the cast? More veteran cast missing opportunities for a novel storyline? Just an (understandably) off year? A combination of it all?
When it comes to RHONY, there’s next to nothing. A short stay at Dorinda’s Blue Stone Manor in the Berkshires won’t fix (or ignite, depending on how you look at things). I, for one, am deeply missing the Christmas-style chaos cast trip Blue Stone Manor offered. Before Dorinda’s time on the show, the Berkshires were largely looked down upon by the New York ladies. Especially Ramona Singer, who tended to prefer the Hamptons. Over the last few years, however, fans and production seemed to appreciate the calamity of the Beserkshires enough to put it on the Bravo map permanently.
The 11,000 square foot Manor is best known for hosting Housewives to most. But, for Dorinda, it was a gift from her beloved late husband, Richard. Now, Blue Stone is going on the map as America’s first Housewife-themed home-away-from-home! I call the fish room! People are reporting that Dorinda will be listing Blue Stone Manor on Airbnb!
“Blue Stone Manor has become this urban legend, that’s sort of like the Disneyland of Housewives,” Dorinda announced. “People know me for hosting, and I’ve made it so available on Instagram and the show, so I think they’re going to be very excited to see that it’s real and functioning.”
“I think after everything the world has gone through, just to have this experience up there, and not just see it on TV, but to touch it, feel it, know it, look at it — I really think people will have a great time,” Dorinda continued.
For anyone interested, Blue Stone will only be opening its doors for two stays. The race to claim a night at the famous estate begins Wednesday, August 18th at 12 pm ET. Hopefully, you’re available Monday, August 23rd, or Wednesday, August 25th, because those are the only options!
The listing for Blue Stone includes a price of $100 per night. Not bad for everything this 18-acre lot has to offer! The site describes what guests can access too. It reads, “Every room of the century-old estate is yours for admiring. The dining room’s a green hand-painted ceiling, the vibrant purple sofas of the billiards room, the gold-threaded curtains in the entry hall – I dare you to pick a favorite. And trust me, it’s harder than you think.”
