Bethenny shared her reaction to the news of Dorinda's exit on Instagram on August 25 with a post that featured a photo of the pair while filming the RHONY Season 11 reunion in 2019. "You will be missed," Bethenny captioned the photo. "Let the next chapter begin."
Bethenny made her return to RHONY after a three-season absence in Season 7, which was also when Dorinda first joined the show. Though Bethenny announced her departure from RHONY after Season 11, Dorinda confirmed during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home in July that the two "absolutely" still keep in touch. In fact, Dorinda and Bethenny reunited in the Hamptons earlier this month.
Dorinda confirmed that she would not be returning to RHONY after six seasons on the show in a post on Instagram on August 25.
"What a journey this has been. I have laughed and cried and tried to Make it Nice... But all things must come to an end. This was a great outlet for me to heal when my late husband Richard passed away. I have met so many interesting people and learned so much about myself, about life and about women along the way," she wrote. "Thank you to Bravo and NBC for the incredible ride and to my cast mates for constant stimulation and entertainment. I wish you all health, happiness and success. Clip! Dorinda."
