When in generations from now historians look back on Dorinda Medley's run on The Real Housewives of New York City, she'll definitely be remembered for her sassy quips. And on Wednesday's RHONY, she unveiled a brand-new one during a lunch out with the ladies. During an argument with Sonja Morgan over whether she played any role in Tipsy Girl (she didn't, according to her), she broke out the line, "Clip, clip, clip." 

Considering that the dinner was in the Boogie Down Bronx, Dorinda admits her attitude that night was definitely influenced by being in the famously-feisty borough. "You know me. I'm a chameleon," she said on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Wednesday. "I adjust to all situations."

Was Dorinda Medley a Part of Tipsy Girl?

When Andy Cohen noted that he also appreciated her usage of the term "ass wipe" during the dinner, she said, "Yes, well, that's very classy. Again, sorry, Mom."

As we've seen this season alone from Dorinda, she's been busting out one shady comment after another. One of the most memorable, hands down, had to be at another get-together, where she told partygoer/Sex and the City writer Candace Bushnell that she was doing "Not well, bitch." And it quickly became a viral catchphrase. "Funny thing about that. That came out, I think the teaser came out on like a Monday. Do you know by Tuesday someone already sent me a mug?" she said. "I was like I've got to trademark that s***. They call it the Dorindaisms."
