Dorinda Medley may still be a fresh new face on The Real Housewives of New York, but it sounds like Teresa Giudice is very thankful to have Dorinda in her life. As it turns out, Medley reached out to Giudice when she was charged with fraud and sentenced to a year behind bars. Apparently, she was there so much for her that she got herself an acknowledgement in Teresa’s new book, Turning The Tables: From Housewife to Inmate and Back Again.
According to a new report, Dorinda Medley is psyched to be in the new book, which is now a New York Times bestseller. “To my fellow Housewives who reached out and were there for me: Lisa Vanderpump, NeNe Leakes, Dorinda Medley, Jill Zarin, Teresa and Rino Aprea, and Nicole Napolitano: I want to thank all of you for your support. It means so much to me,” Teresa wrote in the acknowledgments section of her book.
As it turns out, Dorinda has followed Teresa on her journey to reestablish herself after being released from prison. It is possible that Medley has reached out to Teresa and offered up some help to get her back on track. Regardless, Dorinda is thrilled that Teresa is getting back on track and she’s proud of her.
“I’m very proud. I love Teresa. I love her. She’s great,” Dorinda revealed to Bravo after learning that she had been featured in the book. “I think she’s a survivor. I think it’s never about the mistake. It’s how you get up and handle the next phase of your life,” Dorinda continued, adding, “Believe me, we’ve all stumbled. Anyone that says they haven’t are full of sh**, OK? Or you will stumble at some point. So you better be careful.”
Dorinda Medley added that she’s very happy for Teresa and points out that’s a great mother. What do you think of Dorinda being mentioned in Teresa’s new book?
