Breaking news out of BravoCon 2022: Dorinda Medley is officially vindicated. The former Real Housewives of New York City cast member has long been adamant that she was not let go from the series, but rather put "on pause," and producer Lisa Shannon is now confirming that was indeed the case (Andy Cohen has said the same in the past).

“I will verify that the words ‘on pause’ were used," Lisa said while speaking on a Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip panel. "She went on pause."

The reveals didn't stop there, though. The RHONY and RHUGT producer also addressed rumors that Tinsley Mortimer was at one point set to star on Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip Season 3, which is taking place in Thailand and features Leah McSweeneyThe Real Housewives of Potomac’s Candiace Dillard Bassett and Gizelle BryantThe Real Housewives of Miami’s Alexia Nepola and Marysol PattonThe Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’s Heather Gay and Whitney Rose, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Porsha Williams.

"She had a personal commitment that she wasn't able to move," Lisa said of Tinsley, "and she's in a really good place in her life right now, so she had to prioritize that."

She continued, "But I'm hopeful we’ll be seeing Tinsley Mortimer soon.”
