Dorinda Medley Announces She’s Leaving #RHONY After Six Seasons! Full story on AllAboutTRH.com #linkinbio 🍎Are you surprised by Dorinda's departure?

It turns out Dorina has been living in her luxe apartment rent-free for several years in return for featuring the complex on RHONY.
Since 2017, Dorinda has been living in her $10,000 a month, three-bedroom apartment in the Tony Oriana building on Sutton Place completely free “while also banking around $10,000 every month.”
According to Page Six sources, Dorinda’s team came up with various ways to get the apartment featured on RHONY – like throwing Valentine’s Day and Halloween parties at the building and getting permission to film there.
“She did a great job getting attention for the place,” said an insider. “The property company were very happy with it.”
Dorinda still lives in the building, but the source admits they don’t know how or if the deal was renegotiated after the initial one year contract ended. The former RHONY star’s contract didn’t say she had to feature the building on the show, instead only requiring her to post about it on social media.
Bravo’s website all featured a tour of Dorinda’s apartment earlier this year as a lead up to season 12 of the show.
“She’s a very shrewd business person,” added a source close to the deal. “She’s very good at leveraging her platform.”
I am so not surprised by this. So many Housewives and Influencers do this type of stuff all the time. It doesn’t make sense to me, especially if you are someone who has the money, but I guess everyone loves a freebie.
The Real Housewives of New York airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET.
