Andy Cohen Says He Told Dorinda Medley She Was “On Pause” And Vicki Gunvalson Was “Fired”

I think Dorinda Medley has long been holding on to hope of rejoining Real Housewives of New York. After 6 seasons on the show, she was fired in 202o. During what was to be her final season, she was over-the-top and often cruel to her castmates. She had officially overstayed her welcome. Despite season 12 of RHONY still airing, Dorinda wrote her goodbye on Instagram. She shared, “What a journey this has been. I have laughed and cried and tried to Make it Nice. But all things must come to an end. This was a great outlet for me to heal when my late husband Richard [Medley] passed away.”

Some fans were happy to be rid of her, while others demanded she come back. So she did, in the form of Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Ex-Wives Club. But she’s been an insufferable host while filming at her famous home, Blue Stone Manor. So a comeback might not be as likely as she was hoping. But there seems to be some confusion about whether or not Dorinda even has a chance to come back to RHONY. Andy Cohen famously said that she was put on “pause.”

On a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Dorinda demanded to know from Andy if that’s what he said. She asked, “Andy, I need you to clear it up. Was I on pause? Did you say it yourself? Did you put me on pause?” Andy fought to get a word in and finally was able to reply, “I said we are putting you on pause.”

Dorinda went on, “I googled it the other day again. So there you go, Brandi [Glanville].” Andy seemed confused and asked her, “So what did you google?” She replied, “I googled ‘what does Andy Cohen say about Dorinda being a housewife?'” The crowd, along with Andy, laughed in response.

Andy then wanted to know, “Did you find anything?” Dorinda laughed, “Yes! And I sent it to Tim. And then I put ‘What did Andy Cohen say about Vicki Gunvalson leaving the housewives?’ And it said that she was fired.” She added, “So…I just googled it.” Andy and fellow guest and RHUGT castmate Phaedra Parks responded with an “ooooh,” clearly uncomfortable and wanting to move on. Vicki was shockingly fired from Real Housewives of Orange County after spending 14 seasons on the show.

Andy had previously stated that he told Dorinda “a couple times” that he hoped she will rejoin the franchise at some point. Andy stated, “I am really hopeful that this is indeed a pause, and that she will rejoin the show at some point. I have said that to her a couple of times, and by the way, I do not say that too often.”
