During a March 24 episode of her radio show on SiriusXM, “Make It Nice With Dorinda Medley,” Dorinda Medley reacted to the new reboot news from “Real Housewives of New York.”
Andy Cohen announced this in an interview with diversity on March 23, stating that going forward they would reboot the “Real Housewives of New York” into two shows: one featuring the previous cast and fan favorites like Ramona Singer, and one with an all-new cast.
“I got this sent to me by a friend yesterday, I was lying down for my radio show today, reading, studying, and it came through and I almost fell out of bed,” Medley admitted during the episode. “I had to ‘Dr. Philip.’ It got to me that much and you know how much I love Dr. Phil love.”
Medley continued, “I think the announcement Andy [Cohen] made yesterday was absolutely brilliant and I wrote to him and told him about it. First, it deadens the noise. It gives us something to think about… basically they’re rebooting and starting from scratch.”
During the segment, Medley also added, “Andy Cohen, you did it beautifully and you did it right. I’m very excited. I’ve heard some women in the cast weren’t that enthusiastic and they’re not quite sure what it means, but to me? I’ve been on break for two years, so I’m like, ‘Now you’re all taking a break with me!’ I’ll just keep going.”
Cohen said that “Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip” helped inspire this new reboot
While speaking with diversity, Cohen revealed that the success of Peacock spinoff Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip helped inspire this new reboot of The Real Housewives of New York.
“‘Ultimate Girls Trip’ was a real hit,” Cohen told the outlet. “And it allowed us to be like, ‘Oh, we can keep this other universe going. And it won’t cannibalize the original.’ Making that throwback version — like you could — turned the tone off see it. In another year, it might have seemed gluttonous or weird if there was an appetite for The Real Housewives of New York and Real Housewives of New York: Throwback. But I think that just gives us more options and more space to place it, the throwback version.”

Lesseps continued, “New York is coming back, and you know, hopefully we’ll come back stronger than ever.”
