Dorinda Medley, The Real Housewife of New York City star, kicked off July with an appearance on Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show. The TV personality star shared center stage with Fallon to look back and react to her most viral memes from the show - not letting her forget her most iconic moments that she will never live down. While Dorinda is also known and praised for her philanthropic ways, her housewife debut showed her flair for entertainment, and nobody is complaining!

Before the housewife era, Dorinda Medley was most famous for her success as an American businesswoman. After following her husband to London, her cashmere company DCL Cashmere created a celeb status for Medley, catching the attention of some seriously high-profile clients and true fashion icons such as Princess Diana and Joan Collins. Soon after her husband passed, she returned to the states with her daughter, "leaving a mark on London society." Medley continued to show and devote passion to her friends, family, fashion fitness teaching, and her favorite charities, such as Born This Way Foundation and Gabrielle's Angel Foundation. While Medley was at the height of the social ladder in NYC, the masterminds behind Bravo took up on an opportunity they couldn't miss out on, introducing Medley to the 7th season of RHONYC.

With an authentic flare for humor and immediate likeability, Medley was a great addition to the show. Her 7th season entrance was not too late, with audiences on The Tonight Show welcoming her with laughter and loud applause. Fallon welcomed her by printing out her best meme moments, including a Medley meltdown at the one and only Berkshire mansion, screaming, 'I decorated, I cooked, I made it nice!' Medley even made money off her personality during the pandemic when a viral meme became printed on mugs. What a businesswoman! Fallon expressed his love for Medley while also mentioning her considerable fan base - including Lady Gaga and even Rihanna, who took her fangirling to Instagram, asking to visit the famous Berkshire mansion.

Surprisingly, the fan-favorite housewife told Fallon she never thought she would be, well, a housewife. After moving from the UK to the USA and experiencing tragic losses, Medley got back on her feet. A month after she got the call, Medley started filming her first scene in The Hamptons with co-star Ramona Singer. "Hmm, I like the camera, and I think the camera likes me... This works for me," she recalled thinking. She's most definitely not wrong! It's impossible not to fall in love with Medley's natural presence. Here's to more viral memes and Berkshire moments!
