What Will We Learn in Dorinda Medley’s Memoir Make It Nice?

Dorinda Medley may no longer be making it nice on the Real Housewives of New York City but she is in her new book Make It Nice. Available today August 17th on AmazonRHONY fans will be able to delve deeper into the Blue Stone Manor’s former housewife Dorinda.

What will we learn in Dorinda’s memoir?

Will we learn more about her marriage to Richard Medley? Her cathartic first return to London since the passing of her late husband Richard Medley was chronicled in a 2015 episode of RHONY.

Will we find out what actually happened to cause the breakup between her and John Mahdessian? In season 12, Dorinda revealed her breakup with long time partner and dry cleaner extraordinaire, John Mahdessian.

More details as to why Dorinda left the RHONY franchise? Many rumors as to why the RHONY alum left the BRAVO franchise are constantly swirling. Was it because of the turkey baster comment?

Dorinda’s book deal came right before Dorinda’s exit from RHONY 

Prior to Dorinda’s RHONY exit last year, she was presented with the opportunity to chronicle her life in her new tell-all. According to her publishing company Simon & Schuster The Real Housewives of New York City fan-favorite Dorinda Medley takes fans inside her roller-coaster life and iconic Blue Stone Manor to share how they, too, can Make It Nice. 

 “Throughout her life, Dorinda Medley has always strived to “make it nice” regardless of the circumstances. In her incredibly candid memoir, the Real Housewife of New York City opens the doors of Blue Stone Manor, her Berkshires sanctuary, welcoming fans into her beloved home. In her first-ever written life story, Dorinda clips away all pretense and noise to unveil the not-so-glamorous bumps in the road that have marked her colorful journey toward becoming the person viewers, colleagues, and friends know and love today. This is a vulnerable and emotional account of love, motherhood, loss, and the not-entirely-planned adventure from her modest beginnings in the Berkshires to her personal, social, and professional ascent—told in her trademark manner.”

Taking a Housewives Pause – Pause & Effect

“She was in a bad place, her house had been flooded, her dad was sick,” Andy Cohen stated. He went on to say “Sometimes taking a pause is a good thing and I am really hopeful that this is indeed a pause and that she would rejoin the show at some point. I think a pause is a good thing and she will come back renewed and refreshed.” BRAVO super-fans have been very vocal about their desire for Dorinda to come back to the franchise.

On Dorinda’s IGTV from June 10th, she read fans a brief excerpt of her upcoming memoir and read “a person is shaped as much by her failures as they are by their successes, yes that girl is ME!” as she let out a squeal.

From the sounds of it, Dorinda’s new book may be more inspirational and empowering than some might be expecting. Possibly similar to Margaret Josephs book Caviar Dreams, Tuna Fish Budget: How to Survive in Business and Life

Per her press release, “Chronicling the life of the reality television star, Make It Nice also features life lessons for those who may experience similar challenges, as well as the celebrated hostess’s invaluable entertaining tips, all presented with the humor and wit that have “oh-so-well made” Dorinda Medley a most compelling compilation.”

Dorinda’s new book is available now on Amazon.

Blogher ’12 – Thursday Recap

Thursday was filled with off-site parties. I did not think I would manage to attend all 3 parties I wanted to, but to my surprise I did it. Woo Hoo!

 

First stop was the Social Luxe party at Arena NYC. Party goers could get massages, henna tattoos and more at this great event. The Social Luxe Hostesses love to pamper, polish, primp and party!

Vanessa Lachey was there (yes she’s due any minute now) and is an absolute sweetheart. First thing she said to me was she loved my Origami Owl necklace. Even the celebs love Origami Owl!

 

 

I learned from Jill Zarin that Real Housewives don’t use rags, they SpotBot it with the BISSELL SpotBot. Another sweetheart and super down to earth. She has some super cool things in the works so stay tuned.

 

Up next the CAbi Style Suite party at The London Hotel hosted by MomTrends and Savvy Sassy Moms. I got my lips done (no not injections, lipstick application) by Makeup Forever, had a hand and arm massage from the Mama Mio folks, drank a bellini and chatted with the CAbi people about their company. Attendees were able to shop, try on CAbi clothes and walk away with two pieces of their choice. Sweet! Here is what I selected:

My final stop of the night was the Social Soiree party held at Murals on 54 in the Warwick Hotel. Here I chatted with a number of coupon and deal sites like Fat Wallet and Ebates. I also had my first experience with bacon wrapped dates. Where have you been all my life?

 

I started off the Blogher festivities on a great note with these fab parties. I had the best time and made some amazing connections and new friends.
