Don’t you just love it when Bravolebrities cross paths in one of the greatest cities in the world? So do we!

How to Watch

Watch Dancing Queens on Peacock and the Bravo app.    

Dorinda Medley from The Real Housewives of New York City is a fan of Clinique des Champs Elysées, New York’s first French medical spa. The upscale establishment, which offers a variety of non-invasive and anti-aging procedures, happens to be owned by one of Bravo’s newest additions, Gaëlle Benchetrit of Dancing Queens, a show that takes viewers into the glamorous and competitive world of ballroom dancing.

In a Feb. 10 post on Instagram, Dorinda documented how she went to the Clinique des Champs Elysées for a skin analysis, followed by a Hydrafacial, a non-invasive and popular procedure involving resurfacing a person’s skin.

“This is gonna make me 20 years younger,” Dorinda told the medspa specialist. “I’m very excited to be here; let’s do it!”

As detailed in the post, the clinic’s Hydrafacial gives clients a “bright, clean, and glowy complexion” by cleansing, exfoliating, hydrating, and fusing skin. Starting at $245, the 30-minute session uses “a patented technology Hydropeel and super serum boosters” as part of the all-in-one facial.

Dorinda said she had a “beautiful day” following the treatment when she met with Dancing Queens Gaëlle, exchanging a hug in the clinic’s lobby.

“It is a delight!” Dorinda said of the clinic.

Of course, Clinique des Champs Elysées offers more than just Hydrafacials, including laser hair removal, Botox, and plastic surgery options such as breast and buttocks implants and liposuction. Other celebs have also sought treatments there, including international models Ann Sophie Thieme and Kamila Hansen, TV personality Batsheva Haart, and a host of social media influencers.

“Meeting [Gaëlle] and the entire team was such a pleasure!” Dorinda posted. “I felt so taken care of; they gave my skin a proper evaluation and got to work making me feel pampered!”  

Dorinda, calling the medspa “a bit of international luxury right in NYC” and teased Gaëlle might be appearing on television soon, telling her 1 million followers to “stay tuned!”

According to the Clinique des Champs Elysées website, Gaëlle is a Parisian businesswoman and entrepreneur who moved from France to New York to pursue her new venture, ultimately buying the medspa.

“I wanted that specific French approach of beauty and aesthetic medicine that I was used to,” said Gaëlle. “Cutting-edge technology with the best safety record, of course, but mostly the expertise to assess and treat each patient while enhancing their unique beauty.”

Gaëlle is featured on Dancing Queens, which also includes Colette Marotto, Donie Burch, Leonie Biggs, Pooja Mehta, and Sabrina Strasser (you can meet them here!). The new series takes viewers where “passion and glamour meet the rigorous demands of the ballroom dance competition world” as the ladies juggle their personal lives and dance.

Much of the new series focuses on the amateur Dancing Queens ladies and their relationships with their professional male dancing partners, part of a category known as “Pro-Am Dancing.” In the series, Gaëlle’s partner, world-famous dancer Nino Langella, becomes the envy of the other women, some of whom are dealing with issues with their own partners.

Gaëlle might own one of New York’s best beauty spots, but as she’d also say, “life is better with dancing,” according to her Instagram page.

You can see more about the Clinique des Champs Elysées on its Instagram page, as well.

Dancing Queens premieres Tuesday, May 9 at 9/8c on Bravo and streams the next day on Peacock.
