Dorinda Medley’s Surprise Makeover

We've all been there. We make an expensive purchase, we reach for the [insert messy food], and BAM! A cringe-worthy stain appears. Dorinda Medley has been through the whole buzz-killing ordeal as well, and shared her experience on Instagram Stories on April 25. Don't worry: this story has a happy ending, with a tip for keeping high-end fashion safe. And in a sweetly romantic twist, Dorinda's beau John Mahdessian was the unsung hero of it all. Here's how it all went down.

After purchasing a new, creamy white Balmain sweater, Dorinda found herself facing down (you guessed it!) a stain. In a clip she shared on social, The Real Housewives of New York City pal said, zooming into the top: "I don't know if you can see that, but I got a brand new stain on my new Balmain sweatshirt. So I'm going to use the [Madame Paulette] stain kit and see if it takes it out." She added a little prayer: "Please take it out, I just got this." 

Side note: As RHONY superfans know, Madame Paulette is the Upper East Side's high-end dry-cleaner that has a way with treating designer items. And it's owned by — you guessed it! — John himself. But, onto the results. Does the Madame Paulette kit work? 

Dorinda's next Instagram picture said a thousand words. OK, two, but it'll give you the verdict:
