What a journey this has been. I have laughed and cried and tried to Make it Nice… But all things must come to an end. This was a great outlet for me to heal when my late husband Richard passed away. I have met so many interesting people and learned so much about myself, about life and about women along the way. Thank you to Bravo and NBC for the incredible ride and to my cast mates for constant stimulation and entertainment. I wish you all health, happiness and success. Clip! Dorinda
Dorinda has been through many hard times but also happy and exciting ones throughout the years and fans were able to witness all of them.
However, at the end of the day, the most important thing in her life is family so it appears that this played quite a big role in her decision to leave RHONY.
‘She’s taking this time to focus on herself and her family,’ the source claimed, going on to suggest that this might not be the end for good!
The source told the same news outlet that ‘She’s not saying she never wants to be on television or RHONY ever again. The schedule is really rigorous and takes a lot of time which she just isn’t able to give that kind of time right now. You may even see her pop-up next season here and there. She’s not opposed to filming, she just doesn’t want to be tied down to the schedule of it all at this time.’
