Can money buy you, class? Well, not in the case of “Real Housewives of New York City” alum Dorinda Medley. The 58-year-old TV personality displayed a “shameful” act after getting extremely drunk and allegedly being rude to staffers at Luann de Lesseps’ weekend cabaret show. Not only this but it is reported that she is permanently banned from the club by management.
Dorida Made The Staffers Cry…
Dorinda Medley (58) got no class. The “Real Housewives of New York City” alum got kicked off from Luann de Lesseps’ weekend cabaret show after allegedly being rude to staffers. “She was asked to leave and she’s now been permanently banned from the club by management, never to step foot in there again,” a source close to de Lesseps revealed.
“She made several staffers actually cry, she was really drunk and kept yelling, ‘I don’t get paid to be here!’” the source added. However, Dorinda’s rep. shut down the claims and instead argued that the TV personality was too intoxicated and left early because she was suffering from a “routine cold” and didn’t want to “expose others.”
The publicist released a statement: “She wanted to make her exit prior to the crowd exiting so she wouldn’t expose others to her cold, she arrived right at the start of the show for the same reason. She was never intoxicated and made no one cry, one of Luann’s cabaret employees was kind enough to order her an Uber to get safely home.
“The club never asked her to leave and you can confirm with ownership she would be welcomed back any time,” the rep. claimed. On the other hand, it is reported that she is permanently banned from the NYC club, 54 Below, where de Lesseps’ show took place.
More About The Incident…
Medley’s rep claims that she left early because she was suffering from a “routine cold” and didn’t want to “expose others.” On the contrary, a viral video suggests that Medley was dancing near audience members, and not avoiding them. Donna Carrera, an audience member from the club, revealed what exactly happened during the weekend show.
She revealed that Medley appeared “drunk” and got into a disagreement with a staffer. “When we got [to the lobby], it appeared she was in a convo with someone, a young woman manager, so we waited for a pic, but we quickly realized that this was not a convo and Dorinda was yelling at the woman and getting in her face.”
She further narrated that the staffer was professional and took Dorinda’s behaviour. She was going on and on about how she was bringing liveliness to the show. “It was almost as if Dorinda was implying she was the one that was getting the crowd riled up and causing them to have a great time,” the fan added.
Carrera says she and a friend, Tae Love, were eventually ushered out of the lobby by another worker, but they saw Medley return to her table minutes later. “She was clearly drunk and getting drunker as the show progressed and she kept jumping up to be included in the show while Luann was on stage.
“The way she is on ‘RHONY’ was exactly how she behaved that night,” the fan concluded. It also came out that Dorinda was quite inebriated and kept shouting, “I don’t get paid to be here!” She caused a few employees to cry. Well, this isn’t the first time that the TV personality got herself in trouble for “bad behaviour”.
Previously, she garnered negative publicity during her time on “Real Housewives of New York City”. “Her off-the-cuff remarks and drunk diatribes went from being amusing enough even when problematic to being cringeworthy and genuinely terrifying, and she was no longer much fun to watch,” a source claimed in 2020. It was the time when she bid farewell to the show, to be precise when she was fired from the show.
