Dorinda Medley Admits It’s “Tough” Watching Herself On RHONY This Season; Says “I Just Feel Vulnerable And Scared And Overwhelmed”

Dorinda Medley admitted that it hasn’t been easy watching the current season of The Real Housewives of New York City. “Yes. Absolutely it was a tough episode to watch,” Medley told Us Weekly about the May 14 episode, in which Medley is seen mourning her late husband. “But I think the thing is — that there’s a lot of things going on and obviously we can’t break the fourth wall.”

She continued: “There’s a lot of things coming up and a lot of things, like, that I am going through myself that are making me definitely on edge and uptight.”

Medley recently revealed on the Bravo hit reality series that she broke up with longtime boyfriend John Mahdessian as she broke down in tears about all the recent changes in her life.

“I think I say it at the winery — I just feel vulnerable and scared and overwhelmed,” she explained.

Medley revealed that before she started filming this season, “[I] thought, ‘I can’t do this. I just can’t take another thing.’”

“I’m in this process. I decided to be a housewife, and you have to be a housewife [in] good times [and] bad times, that’s part of the process,” Medley explained. “That’s the journey that you need to take the viewer on, and then they can take and do what they want with it.”


Medley has been dealing with a lot this season, as she's been feuding with Tinsley Mortimer, and dealing with a massive flood at her Blue Stone Manor. Plus, she revealed she’d broken a rib before filming began, which again caused her to reevaluate her life.

“I literally would cry to my mother, ‘I don’t know what’s going on. Nothing’s working out anymore,’” she recalled. “And she would say to me, ‘It’s exactly where it should be. There is a reason. Well OK, you broke your rib. Guess that means you got to slow down.’”

Medley joked: “My tagline should have been, ‘I’m not only reconstructing my house, I’m reconstructing myself.’”

She added, “I felt like I had to ask permission to do a lot of my life. Now I’m like, ‘I’m doing it. If you don’t like it it’s too bad,’” she told Us Weekly. “And also, two, it’s made me a lot more intolerant to any bulls–t.”
