What Dorinda Medley's Relationship With Her RHONY Castmates Is Like Now

In August 2020, the news broke that Dorinda Medley was leaving The Real Housewives of New York City, following a season of feuding with Tinsley Mortimer and Ramona Singer. Months later, Dorinda told Us Weekly that time away from the cameras along with the isolation of the coronavirus pandemic created a "beautiful reset" in her life. She has more time to spend with her family and herself, which she "never really" had while she was filming the show. 

Even so, it's not as if she fell out with the women because they're no longer co-stars. Dorinda shared, "I'm still very close to everybody. I feel positive about it." Aside from the Housewives, she revealed that Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen "checks in every once in a while." Dorinda emphasized, "I was really friends with these people. They were part of my life before the show. This wasn't a show thing. This was a real thing."

She knew the Big Apple ladies before her foray into reality TV and they will always be connected, but she seems to be closer to some of them more than others — keep on reading to find out who she considers close pals.

Dorinda Medley made lifelong pals

It pretty much goes without saying that Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer aren't best friends. During a June 2020 Watch What Happens Live appearance, Tinsley claimed that Dorinda blocked her after learning that Dorinda said it was the other way around. Dorinda and Ramona Singer unfollowed each other on Instagram in October 2020, after Dorinda posted a meme comparing her reunion fight with Ramona to Donald Trump debating Joe Biden. Dorinda told the Daily Mail that the unfollowing was "a relief." Meanwhile, Ramona said, "I don't appreciate the negative things she continues to say about me and at this point in my life I don't need any negativity like that around me."

Thankfully, Dorinda seems to be on better terms with the other Housewives. Dorinda posted a photo in honor of Sonja Morgan's birthday in November 2020. The next month, Luann de Lesseps shared birthday wishes for Dorinda on social media. Dorinda has also shared pictures enjoying lunch with Leah McSweeney in addition to hanging out with Bethenny Frankel multiple times since her departure from Bravo.

Dorinda isn't on reality TV anymore... for now anyway, but her reality hasn't changed, even without the cameras. She's still very much in the fold with her longtime friends.
