Bethenny Frankel has been receiving a lot of love since confirming that she will not be returning to The Real Housewives of New York City after Season 11, including from her fellow New York Housewife Dorinda Medley.

Dorinda commented on Bethenny's emotional Instagram post announcing her departure from the series on August 21. “Happy for you sad for the group x,” Dorinda shared.

Dorinda was just one of many New York Housewives, Bravolebs from other shows, and fans who sent her best wishes to Bethenny in the comments to that Instagram post, as you can see in the below screenshot.

Dorinda Medley Reacts to Bethenny Frankel's RHONY Exit

Bethenny has been a part of the RHONY family since the series' very first season back in 2008. She decided to take a break from the show after Season 3 and later returned to hang with the Housewives in Season 7, which was also Dorinda's first season on the show.

Bethenny reflected on how far she has come since she first began her journey on RHONY in her post on Instagram, starting as a "broke, single" woman in her late 30s living in a "tiny apartment" to becoming a major business mogul and philanthropist with her beautiful 9-year-old daughter, Bryn, and boyfriend Paul. "I am fortunate to have created a business and career that some people only dream of. I had a beautiful baby girl who is now 9 years old, and she has changed me as a human being," Bethenny wrote. "I was able to give back and help people all over the world who have been hit with the worst of unforeseen circumstances, which we will all continue together."

I wanted to take a moment to write a personal note to you. I am so grateful to you for sticking with me through everything. You started this journey with me in my tiny apartment in my late 30s, wondering what would happen to me. I was broke, single, had no family and no idea what the future held. I had big dreams and I never stopped, but I honestly didn’t know if I would ever get here. You helped me to get here. I would read your letters and messages and grow from your struggles. You would give me your honest opinion about my products and projects and helpful advice about divorce, relationships, motherhood, miscarriages, health, and surviving the death of a loved one and almost my own. You have shared your ideas with me and I have been inspired by and learned from you. I am fortunate to have created a business and career that some people only dream of. I had a beautiful baby girl who is now 9 years old, and she has changed me as a human being. I was able to give back and help people all over the world who have been hit with the worst of unforeseen circumstances, which we will all continue together. GO for it. Whatever it is. Reach for your dreams in life and love and make the impossible happen, because it can happen and it WILL happen. Come from a place of yes and it’s yours for the taking. Thank you so much for your love and support. And stay tuned, you haven’t seen the last of me. There are many amazing things to come. I love you all and am so lucky to have you in my life! PS: New York City is still my playground. . ♥️xo♥️ . B

The RHONY entrepreneur ended her note by showing gratitude to all of the fans who have been there for her along the way and teasing that she's just getting started. "Thank you so much for your love and support. And stay tuned, you haven’t seen the last of me. There are many amazing things to come," she said. "I love you all and am so lucky to have you in my life!"
