On Monday (August 21), everything and everyone seemed to stop whatever they were doing during the total solar eclipse that passed over the United States. The event brought together the country -- and even spawned one of the most iconic eclipse-related memes we may ever see in our lifetimes. And we all have Dorinda Medley to thank for it.
First, let's recall the feisty lunch that took place in the Bronx this season on The Real Housewives of New York City that inspired the meme. You know, the one that included Dorinda shouting "clip, clip, clip" across the restaurant (clip above, no pun intended). Well, it was that moment that brought to life this Dorinda-approved meme.
It wasn't just Dorinda who was living for the meme, but also Andy Cohen, who shared it on Twitter. Now, if you feel like you've missed your chance to break out this particular Dorinda highlight because, well, the 2017 eclipse has come and gone, there's good news on the horizon. The next total solar eclipse that will be visible in the United States is scheduled for April 8, 2024. So you have less than seven years to break it out and use it.
And if you're looking for any other Dorinda-isms to use in your everyday life, below she breaks down some memorable ones.
