Luckily one of the signature phrases from this season of the Real Housewives of New York wasn’t necessary last night, as Dorinda Medley helped host her boyfriend John John Mahdessian’s lavish 50th birthday party at his private loft on the Upper East Side. The RHONY newbie stunned in a silver sequined dress and sky-high heels, while John looked pretty dapper himself in white pants and a bright blue plaid blazer. The couple mostly mingled on the penthouse’s outside patio, enjoying music, elegant hors d’oeuvres, and a bar with specialty cocktails. The really special treat, however, were the cookies placed on each table emblazoned with John’s beaming face.
Aside from close friends and family, some notable Bravolebrities were on hand to help celebrate, including: Ramona Singer, Melissa and Joe Gorga, Jill and Bobby Zarin, Secrets and Wives' Liza Sandler and Susan Doneson, and The Singles Project's Tabasum Mir. Dorinda was overheard introducing Melissa as her “new bestie” to a longtime friend, while Joe laughed with John, jokingly saying to another guest, “I don’t like this guy!”
