Dorinda Medley Says She ‘Wanted to Cry’ When Bethenny Frankel Announced Her RHONY Exit!

Dorinda Medley reveals the moment she found out Bethenny Frankel announced that she was leaving The Real Housewives of New York City. “I actually wanted to cry. There’s sort of a good old-fashioned aspect to her I love,” she told Saratoga Living.

“She’s a true original ‘Housewife.’ It takes a brave and fearless person to do what we do.”

She continued: “And the great thing about Bethenny is that off camera, she’s exactly like she is on camera.”

“We’re very good, true friends,” Medley added. “And we’re two alphas. The minute we realized we could run together in the pack, there was relief. She’ll always be one of the OGs.”

Frankel announced her departure from the RHONY franchise on August 21. At the time, she confirmed in a statement that “it’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett.”

“With the changes in modern culture, I want to highlight the strength, confidence and unstoppable power that women have,” she continued. “My experience at Bravo has been an incredibly magical ride. I am so grateful to them for highlighting my entrepreneurialism and allowing me to pave the way for many women to achieve their goals. I am excited for my future. The best is yet to come.”

Since leaving the series, the Skinnygil mogul has been busy orchestrating Hurricane Dorian relief in the Bahamas, through her charity, B Strong.
