Dorinda Medley may have been on our screens just last season of The Real Housewives of New York City, but she still had plenty of life updates to share during her return to Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on August 10.
Andy Cohen kicked off his catch-up sesh with Dorinda by asking her which Housewives she's "in the most touch with these days." "All of them except one," Dorinda replied in the above clip. "Can you guess who that is?"
When Andy guessed Ramona Singer, Dorinda confirmed that's who she was referring to. That shouldn't come as a surprise to RHONY fans either since we witnessed the longtime friendship become majorly strained in Season 12.
Also in Season 12 of RHONY, we learned that Dorinda's relationship with John Mahdessian had come to an end. Well, Dorinda is still single these days, but she's very ready to mingle. "I am on the league, so if you know anyone, Andy, " Dorinda shared when the WWHL host asked about her dating life.
RHONY fans will be happy to know that Dorinda's iconic Berkshires home, Blue Stone Manor, "is thriving and doing well," as is her relationship with beloved housekeeper Len. "Len and I did a great job," Dorinda said of how the pair weathered the pandemic. "We did a lot of reorganizing, and we got even that much closer."
All in all, Dorinda said that stepping away from RHONY after Season 12 turned out to be "a blessing" because it gave her time to pursue other passions, such as writing her first book, Make It Nice, which hits shelves next week. "I don't think I would have ever had the opportunity to write the book, because it was so much more intense, and writing is so hard and terrible," Dorinda said.
During the WWHL After Show, Andy officially gave Dorinda's book a spot in the Bravo Clubhouse. "What an honor!" Dorinda gushed in the below clip. "I can't believe it! I made it!"
When Andy later asked Dorinda if she reached out to any of her fellow Housewives that are authors for tips on tackling a tome, she said, "No, I don't need advice."
Still, Dorinda is very much hanging with Housewives from all over the country, although she said that she has not yet met new RHONY 'Wife Eboni K. Williams (Dorinda did send Eboni "the sweetest DM" after it was announced that she would be joining the show, however). "I love Lisa Rinna. I mean, I'm in contact with a lot. I'm kind of the Housewife Whisperer, you know," Dorinda said before naming some of the other Housewives she's tight with. "I'm doing something with Garcelle [Beauvais] next week with my book. Crystal [Kung Minkoff] actually reached out to me. God, Tamra [Judge], Vicki [Gunvalson], Jill [Zarin]. To tell you the truth, I know a lot of them."
"Yeah, I like a good Housewife," Dorinda added. "It's a Bravo family!"
