Dorinda Medley opened up about her heartbreaking split from former boyfriend John Mahdessian during a previous episode of “The Real Housewives of New York City” and during an episode of Andy Cohen‘s late night talk show, “Watch What Happens Live,” at the end of last week, she re-addressed the break-up and the way in which the two of them opted against living together throughout their seven-year relationship.
According to a report from Bravo’s Style & Living, Dorinda shared additional details about their split on the July 16 episode of “WWHL.”
“I dated John for seven years,” Dorinda confirmed to Andy of her relationship with John, who is in the dry cleaning business.
Dorinda went on to say that despite the many years she spent in a committed relationship with John, the two of them never actually lived together and John didn’t keep any items in her home.
“I never lived with him. I saw him a couple of nights a week,” she said. “He didn’t even have underwear at my house.”
During an episode of the 12th season of “The Real Housewives of New York City” earlier this year, Dorinda was seen confirming her split from John before admitting that although she felt that the relationship was no longer what she wanted, she was quite sad about calling it quits.
“The breakup with John is sad. I mean, it’s terrible, but I also know that I have to do what’s best for me now,” she shared. And I’ve realized that my expectation levels have grown. This is what I want now.”
“This is what I need,” she continued. “I need to find the right partner that’s willing to be engaged in that. And I don’t think that’s bad. I think that’s honesty.”
During the 12th season of the Bravo reality show, Dorinda appeared to be in a bad place in her life and at times, her life struggles resulted in feuds with her cast mates, including Tinsley Mortimer, who ultimately left production on the episodes of the season at the end of last year.
While Dorinda and John parted ways nearly one year ago, the reality star has not yet debuted any new relationships online and appears to be currently single. So, when it comes to the upcoming 13th season of the show, fans just might get to see her dating someone new for the first time.
