There is no question that Dorinda Medley is living her best life right now on Real Housewives of New York. She managed to put her differences with cabaret star Luann de Lesseps in her rear view. Last season Dorinda drunkenly heckled Luann at Luann’s cabaret debut by screaming “Jovani! Jovani!” So, Luann banned Dorinda from Barbara Kavovit’s clam bake.
When Dorinda once again hosted the ladies at her home in the Bezerkshires, she graciously accepted Countess Luann’s list of requirements. Dorinda arranged yoga and a massage for Luann. When Luann had a temper tantrum because she didn’t want to sleep in the infamous fish room, Dorinda plopped Barbara in the room instead. Dorinda spent $250,000 to display these taxidermy fishes. Don’t these ladies realize how hard Dorinda worked at making this room nice?
But now, Dorinda is embracing a new chapter in her life. She decided to move, but Dorinda isn’t parting with her former place. You know, in case her daughter wants to ever move in. Or Dorinda wants to expand on her holiday decoration collection. Dorinda loves her new three-bedroom place and makes it plain that even boyfriend John Mahdessian isn’t welcome to stay for long. She loves her new neighborhood and visits the cheese shop and flower shop to introduce herself.
Dorinda is welcoming changes in her professional life, too. She has landed her own radio gig. In an interview with Page Six, Dorinda revealed that the title of her new SiriusXM show is “Make It Nice.”
“Not to brag, but the minute that camera went on for ‘Housewives,’ I liked the camera and the camera liked me. I put on those earphones and I’m like, ‘This s—t’s good,’” Dorinda shared. “I’m very good at talking to people and I love doing that, because I like people.”
The six-episode show will run on Radio Andy weekly, beginning on May 29. The topics that Dorinda will discuss range from handling grief to tips for throwing an amazing party. Dorinda took to Twitter to announce her exciting new project. The RHONY star did hear from fellow Housewives Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, and Bethenny Frankel.
“Bethenny was like, ‘This is great. This will be a walk in the park. This suits your personality,’” Dorinda stated. “Ramona was like, ‘You’re going to be great. You’re going to be fantastic.’” Dorinda doesn’t seem to hold any ill will towards the co-stars who didn’t reach out. Dorinda said that Luann “has got a lot on her plate.” That is the understatement of the year because Luann just violated her probation. And what about Tinsley Mortimer? “I haven’t heard from Tinsley at all, but that’s nothing new.”
Dorinda is already planning her guests, and the list includes her sister Melinda, her boyfriend John, and her daughter, Hannah Lynch.
“Of course we’re going to have sultan of stains and the maverick of fabric on,” Dorinda said of her dry cleaner boyfriend. “He’s very excited. He thinks he’s going to take over the whole show. He’s like, ‘Wait till I get on the show and talk about my stains.’” I can hardly wait. That sounds riveting!
Missing from her potential guest list are any of her fellow New York Housewives. There is one woman that is Dorinda’s dream guest—Bravo super fan Chrissy Teigen.
“I’m obsessed with her cooking videos, because they’re like my cooking videos — they’re real! I would like to do a cooking, entertainment thing with her. That would be my dream,” Dorinda admitted. Come on, Chrissy! Help a Housewife out!
