Adding some fresh blood to the Real Housewives of New York cast might be just what the show needs and Dorinda Medley thinks former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Hadid could be exactly what the NY cast is missing.
In a new interview with PEOPLE, Dorinda opened up about possibly welcoming Yolanda onto the show for season 9.
“It’s so funny you say that. I was actually at my home in the Berkshires, and I was thinking, ‘How are we all going to come back and recover from all of this?’ And I don’t know if the way to do that is maybe to see some people drop out. Maybe add some fresh blood,” Dorinda reveals.
Dorinda explains that it may be difficult for the current cast to reunite for another season after the season 8 reunion.
“I was just walking through that in my mind, because it’s going to be tough to all sit in the room with all of these characters. We really bifurcated and took our sides and to bring us all back into the ring may be a little difficult. Some fresh blood could really help us out I think. Mix it up.”
As for Yolanda specifically joining RHONY, Dorinda says she’s completely onboard with the idea.
“I would be so happy,” she revealed. “I think she would be perfect for it. She is a mother. She’s a grownup. She’s gone through a lot of different things personally and in her marriages and stuff. I think she’d be the perfect addition.”
However, Dorinda knows just as much as fans and says she’s unaware if Yolanda is actually in talks to join RHONY.
“No, I don’t. People don’t realize this, but we kind of find out almost at the same time as you find out,” she explains.
I agree with Dorinda; Yolanda would be a great fit in NYC. I think it would be a fresh start for Yolanda and switch things up on RHONY. Plus Yolanda could be closer to her two supermodel daughters who live in NYC.
