Dorinda Medley Revealed if She Would Be Returning to ‘RHONY’
As fans are aware, Medley was not asked back for “The Real Housewives of New York City” season 13. During an August 2021 interview on the “Chicks in the Office” podcast, the reality television personality shared why she believes Bravo has stated that she was “put on pause” from the show, as opposed to being fired.
“I think it’s a very specific word they made just for me. So I actually feel very special. And it kind of didn’t — somehow it didn’t offend the fans — what fans I have out there, right. It kind of made them feel like it’s okay,” said Medley.
During the interview, she also revealed if she would be interested in returning to “RHONY.”
“You never know. You never, ever know. You know, life changes, like I say in the book [‘Make It Nice’], just live chapter to chapter,” said the reality television star.

“I’ll be honest with you, after COVID, I had no idea how much of being alone time, you know, and then all of the sudden being thrown back into it and they were supposed to be up there for four days, they ended up staying at Blue Stone Manor for eight. I’ve never had anyone stay at my house for eight days, never mind all these girls that I don’t really know,” shared Medley.
She also noted that she “forged some incredible friendships” with Eva Marcille Sterling and Phaedra Parks.
