The Real Housewives of New York City alum Dorinda Medley is open to finding love again after her breakup with her long-time boyfriend, John Mahdessian. Viewers saw the dynamic in John and Dorinda’s relationship during her five seasons on the show. In the beginning, the pair seemed to be very much in love but had issues in their relationship when it came to Dorinda’s daughter, Hannah. She wasn’t a huge fan of John and would often put him down in front of Dorinda, who defended RHONY’s poor ratings.
However, after Hannah moved out and Dorinda and John’s relationship grew stronger, Hannah became tolerant of her mother’s relationship with the dry cleaner. Nonetheless, viewers began to notice how Dorinda was growing tired of her relationship with John. Not only would she always complain about him, but he was even rude to her friends during her second season on the Bravo series. Now that their relationship is over, Dorinda is ready to find new love.
The 56-year-old made a guest appearance on the podcast Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef on Monday, where she spoke about finding a new partner two years after her split from John. “I never say never,” Dorinda admitted. “I would love to find a nice partner. I would love to find someone to enjoy my life with […] I think it’s just when it’s meant to happen it will happen.” Dorinda knows there is someone for her out there; it’s just going to take time for her to find the perfect guy. The reality star was never one to date multiple men at once since she is very “monogamous” when it comes to dating and relationships. The Massachusetts native confirmed she isn’t great at dating or the situations that go along with it, such as small talk.
Nonetheless, Dorinda, who will reportedly be joining another Housewives mashup series, is putting herself out there in the dating world and is on a dating app called The League. “I’ve been on The League, you know, that, app?” she said to the host. “I will go on and be all into it and then get all of these responses … I get scared almost.” One gentleman she was speaking with reminded her about grabbing a drink together; however, Dorinda quickly realized she may have been a bit tipsy when making the plans. “That was on my second martini honey!” she joked. Nonetheless, Dorinda is taking her time finding Mr. Right as she is currently enjoying her freedom. “I do not answer to anyone right now, and I know probably deep inside that should cause me to be a little lonely, but I’m just not,” she concluded.
Dorinda is content with being a single woman instead of being tied down to a man. The RHONY alum has too much on her plate in terms of her career right now. She just released a memoir and recently partnered with Airbnb so fans can stay at the infamous Blue Stone Manor. In the future, Dorinda hopes to find her perfect match, but for now, she is happy flying solo.
The Real Housewives of New York City airs Tuesdays at 9pm EST on Bravo.
