After starring in seasons 7-12, Dorinda announced her exit in 2020 while the season 12 reunion was still airing. She later confirmed it wasn’t a “mutual” decision, telling Us she misses the show already but is trying to make the most of the time away from the cameras.
“And it’s been a blessing to have the time off, because every once in a while, it’s important to stop reset, think, regroup,” she said in February 2021. “Because we get lost, right? Lost in whatever this is: Housewife fame. The city. Wants, desires. … [It’s been] really nice just to kind of reset and find Dorinda again. Not Dorinda the Housewife. Not Dorinda, John Dan’s daughter. Not Dorinda, Richard’s wife. Just Dorinda. I found it very empowering.”
She is set to release her first book, Make It Nice, in August 2021.Back to top
