Dorinda Medley has held the golden apple for the last time.
On Tuesday, the 55-year-old Bravo staple announced her departure from the “Real Housewives of New York” after six seasons.
“What a journey this has been. I have laughed and cried and tried to Make it Nice…,” Medley began on Instagram.
“But all things must come to an end. This was a great outlet for me to heal when my late husband Richard passed away,” she continued. “I have met so many interesting people and learned so much about myself, about life and about women along the way.”
Medley joined the New York cast in 2015, quickly becoming a fan-favorite. She is the second “Housewife” to exit in recent months, following Tinsley Mortimer in June.
“Thank you to Bravo and NBC for the incredible ride and to my cast mates for constant stimulation and entertainment. I wish you all health, happiness and success,” Medley concluded.
In response to Medley’s post, Bravo honcho Andy Cohen and former “RHONY” cast member, Bethenny Frankel, weighed in in the comments.
“What a ride. Unforgettable,” Cohen wrote.
“XOXO,” Frankel replied.
“You are a legend, forever an ICON love you @dorindamedley,” Margaret Josephs of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” penned.
The “Real Housewives of New York” recently taped their Season 12 reunion in-person amid the coronavirus pandemic.
