Dorinda Medley Just Debunked Something About Her First RHONY Reunion

We were not expecting the RHONY alum to share ALL these details about her past on WWHL.

Dorinda Medley is here to mention it all. When The Real Housewives of New York City alum stopped by the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Clubhouse on Tuesday (August 10), she was spilling everything and not holding back.

During the game "Are you BerkSure?" Dorinda shared what tidbits of biographical info are real or just plain made up. One of those tidbits happened to be about her first RHONY reunion back in Season 7.

Paul the WWHL announcer revealed, "What nobody knows is that before Dorinda walked onto the set of her first Housewives reunion, she fainted in the bathroom due to sheer panic."

"Not true," Dorinda clarified. Andy Cohen added, "Yeah, she came in ready. She was ready."

And in case you somehow forgot this, Dorinda's life before The Real Housewives was pretty wild, fans were reminded when she appeared on WWHL this week. "When Dorinda lived in the UK, she taught aerobics to an infamous serial killer," Paul the WWHL announcer read, to which Dorinda confirmed, "That's 100 percent true!" She added that it's also a story featured in her memoir, Make It Nice, out this month.

Dorinda didn't just confirm or debunk stories about her youth and her life in the Berkshires, but she also revealed an interesting anecdote about her days in London. Paul wanted Dorinda to share if this is true: "When Dorinda was tending to an infant [daughter] Hannah [Lynch] in the middle of the night, the ghost of her neighbor visited her to say hello to Hannah."

Well... "It's so true! It was Oscar Wilde's descendant. I swear this is true! I moved to London, and she lived above me," Dorinda recalled. "She was this wonderful, wacky woman with this huge hairdo, and I had tea with her the first Wednesday of every month. And I promised her to show her Hannah, and she died while I was giving birth to Hannah. And I was so heartbroken."
