There will be no more fish room or weekends at the Berzerkshires! As of an hour ago, 'RHONY' cast mate, Dorinda Medley announced she will no longer be a part of the long running Bravo reality series, which just filmed its season 12 reunion on August 5th. Medley, who joined the show in season seven via longtime friend and OG housewife, Ramona Singer, shared the news via Instagram:
"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 passed away.
I have met so many interesting people and learned so much about myself, about life and about women along the way.
Thank you to Bravo and NBC for the incredible ride and to my cast mates for constant stimulation and entertainment. I wish you all health, happiness and success.
Medley has been through quite a ride during her time on the show. We saw her mourn her late husband, Richard while trying to establish and consistently explain her relationship with ex-boyfriend, John. She also has come under fire for being harsh when she drank a little too much BUT also had the best come backs when it came to making it nice at her home in the Berkshires (#ICON). This season (and the end of last), Medley came under fire for her harsh treatment of Tinsley Mortimer, who left mid-season but will appear at the season 12 reunion to wrap up loose ends. She also came head-to-head with Sonja Morgan on a handful of occasions over who has suffered more in their lives in the divorce versus widow debate.
Fans were not happy with Dorinda's hurtful behavior and actions this season and wished she would get some help and seek some resolution; maybe leaving is her way of finding solace. Yesterday, she announced her close friend and Dorobics partner, Jon Giswold, had passed away so maybe she just needs a break. We wish her the absolute best.
