Dorinda Medley may no longer be making it nice on the Real Housewives of New York City but she is in her new book Make It Nice. Available today August 17th on Amazon, RHONY fans will be able to delve deeper into the Blue Stone Manor’s former housewife Dorinda.
What will we learn in Dorinda’s memoir?
Will we learn more about her marriage to Richard Medley? Her cathartic first return to London since the passing of her late husband Richard Medley was chronicled in a 2015 episode of RHONY.
Will we find out what actually happened to cause the breakup between her and John Mahdessian? In season 12, Dorinda revealed her breakup with long time partner and dry cleaner extraordinaire, John Mahdessian.
More details as to why Dorinda left the RHONY franchise? Many rumors as to why the RHONY alum left the BRAVO franchise are constantly swirling. Was it because of the turkey baster comment?
Dorinda’s book deal came right before Dorinda’s exit from RHONY
Prior to Dorinda’s RHONY exit last year, she was presented with the opportunity to chronicle her life in her new tell-all. According to her publishing company Simon & Schuster “The Real Housewives of New York City fan-favorite Dorinda Medley takes fans inside her roller-coaster life and iconic Blue Stone Manor to share how they, too, can Make It Nice.
“Throughout her life, Dorinda Medley has always strived to “make it nice” regardless of the circumstances. In her incredibly candid memoir, the Real Housewife of New York City opens the doors of Blue Stone Manor, her Berkshires sanctuary, welcoming fans into her beloved home. In her first-ever written life story, Dorinda clips away all pretense and noise to unveil the not-so-glamorous bumps in the road that have marked her colorful journey toward becoming the person viewers, colleagues, and friends know and love today. This is a vulnerable and emotional account of love, motherhood, loss, and the not-entirely-planned adventure from her modest beginnings in the Berkshires to her personal, social, and professional ascent—told in her trademark manner.”
Taking a Housewives Pause – Pause & Effect
“She was in a bad place, her house had been flooded, her dad was sick,” Andy Cohen stated. He went on to say “Sometimes taking a pause is a good thing and I am really hopeful that this is indeed a pause and that she would rejoin the show at some point. I think a pause is a good thing and she will come back renewed and refreshed.” BRAVO super-fans have been very vocal about their desire for Dorinda to come back to the franchise.
On Dorinda’s IGTV from June 10th, she read fans a brief excerpt of her upcoming memoir and read “a person is shaped as much by her failures as they are by their successes, yes that girl is ME!” as she let out a squeal.
From the sounds of it, Dorinda’s new book may be more inspirational and empowering than some might be expecting. Possibly similar to Margaret Josephs book Caviar Dreams, Tuna Fish Budget: How to Survive in Business and Life.
Per her press release, “Chronicling the life of the reality television star, Make It Nice also features life lessons for those who may experience similar challenges, as well as the celebrated hostess’s invaluable entertaining tips, all presented with the humor and wit that have “oh-so-well made” Dorinda Medley a most compelling compilation.”
Dorinda’s new book is available now on Amazon.
