As Dorinda Medley took in the view from Blue Stone Manor on a recent morning, she got a little philosophical. A storm had passed over the Berkshires estate the night before. But at the moment she recorded her Instagram Story, The Real Housewives of New York City alum was surrounded with tranquil scenery bathed in sunshine.
"This tremendous storm came in," Dorinda said, showing off the view from her pool deck. "And now it's beautiful. See? Just like life. Tremendous storms come in, and then it's beautiful." And from where the Massachusetts native was filming, the beauty was undeniable.
The surface of her pool was calm and still (no clamshell floats were out today) and steam rose enticingly off the round hot tub. A white beam of light spilled over the flower garden behind Dorinda's patio. And just beyond the pool, a sunlit field led to a thick forest with rolling mountains behind it.
As Dorinda has said, Blue Stone Manor has seen its share of shenanigans (or, as she put it, "not well bitch" vibes.) But sometimes, the Tudor-style manse offers moments of breathtaking peace. And you can't beat the view:
