Dorinda Medley Responds To Ramona Singer Trashing ‘RHONY’ Spinoff
“It’s a been difficult time for all of us because we’ve all been in limbo for a long time, so maybe she was safely reacting to protect herself,” Dorinda Medley, 57, exclusively tells Page Six while promoting her partnership with Amazon devices and Ring.
“Maybe she’s worried,” the “Make It Nice” author, who recently reestablished communication with Singer after an extended friendship hiatus, continues.
“I don’t believe [she feels that way]. I would hope that’s not true.”
As reported, Ramona Singer, 65, trashed the new RHONY: Legacy show that will feature RHONY OG stars — she called the upcoming series, “The Loser Show.”
“But I also feel like the ‘Legacy’ [show], how could it be really good? The people they are gonna bring back are the people they didn’t want to renew anyways,” she told host Carlos King during his Reality with the King podcast.
“So now what? Are you gonna call it ‘The Loser Show,’ the ‘Loser Legacy’?”
Ramona Singer commented on enjoying life being out of the spotlight since the last episode aired in September 2021.
“I’m much calmer now that I haven’t done the show,” the real estate agent explained. “I know this is an oxymoron, but I really don’t like being recognized.”
Production on the Big Apple Bravo reality series came to a halt after new cast member, Eboni K. Williams, made allegations of racism against Ramona.
“You can call me unfiltered, not polite, always in a rush. I forget people’s names, you know. Yes, I’m all of those. But one thing I’m not — I’m not a racist,” Singer asserted on “Reality with the King.”
The new spinoff will feature all-new and diverse women — was in the works as well as a “Legacy” project.
Cohen, 54, said that the dual show approach “takes into account everything that our passionate audience has really been telling us over the last year” — which saw “RHONY” ratings drop and the cancellation of the Season 13 reunion.
The new “RHONY” reboot cast will feature, Sai De Silva, Ubah Hassan, Erin Dana Lichy, Jenna Lyons, Lizzy Savetsky, Jessel Taank and Brynn Whitfield.
“I think it’s very exciting that they have the new girls,” Medley says. “We’re finally moving this train. Because ‘New York City’ needs the girls running around — new girls, old girls, I think it’s good things to come.”
During BravoCon22, Andy Cohen, gave hints to a permanent Dorinda Medley return to the network.
“When are you going to take Dorinda Medley off pause and press play?” she questioned her old boss during an “Ask Andy” panel.
“Wow, not since Jill Zarin confronted me about why she was fired have I ever been so publicly flogged by a former ‘Housewife,’” he said with a laugh, while also assuring her, “Dorinda, your time is coming.”
