How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

Since joining the Bravoverse in 2015, The Real Housewives of New York City alum has demonstrated a strong affinity for eye-catching fashion and vivid interiors. However, her use of bright colors isn’t confined to her wardrobe or home furnishings, as she’s also applied the beautiful aesthetic to her outdoor space.

Dorinda Medley's New Flower Garden

On Wednesday (August 2), Dorinda shared an Instagram post that showed her posing in her new wildflower garden at Bluestone Manor, a Tudor-style estate that was featured on RHONY as well as Season 2 of The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip. The mother-of-one was seen outside the stately home, sitting on stone steps next to a small plot of colorful blooms.

“New Wildflower Garden is my Summer Vibe,” she captioned the carousel, which included the hashtag “hippie chic.”

Dorinda channels her inner "hippie"

The RHONY: Legacy cast member made sure to complement the scene with a bold outfit, which turned out to be a “groovy hippie” costume by Leg Avenue. The mini dress featured a 1960s-inspired floral pattern, fringe detailing at the waist, and a peace sign patch beneath the lace-up bust. The RHUGT mom finished the throwback look with a pair of Muck Edgewater boots and an elaborate headpiece that resembled twigs and branches.

The flowers in the garden included white, red, purple, and orange varieties. Although Dorinda didn’t provide any close-ups of the blooms, she presented a graphic of wildflowers that grow in the Northeast. The slide featured everything from Wild Cosmos and Candytufts to Coreopsis and Siberian Wallflowers to Gloriosa Daisies and Red Corn Poppies.

Dorinda shares a few thoughts on Bluestone Manor

Dorinda reflected on Bluestone Manor in an Instagram post shared on April 13, nearly two decades after her late husband, Richard Medley, purchased it as a wedding gift.

“She has hosted endless sleepovers, dinners, friends and parties that have brought laughter and love,” Dorinda said about the property in an Instagram. “She protected us during Covid, and most importantly she allowed me to be close to my parents 2 miles away. I am so thankful to be a caretaker of such a magical, loving, and happy place … I thank you all so much for loving her as much as I do!”
