When it comes to the Real Housewives of New York (RHONY) cast, Dorinda Medley has sparkled season after season as a stand-out star. Causing fans to hope that Dorinda never changes, the RHONY delight just turned to Instagram to bare her body. But rather than go for full-frontal nudity, the Real Housewives Of New York beauty made it nice in true Medley style by tastefully covering her breasts with what appeared to be impressively large vegetables.
The Instagram photo and caption stayed true to Dorinda’s RHONY tagline.
“I tell it like it is, but I always make it nice.”
Aware that June means warm weather season is here, Medley is totally prepared to bask in the summer sun, from head to toe. What better way to prove it than to flaunt her fabulous body? Bravo TV, home to the Real Housewives shows, showed approval by covering (or uncovering) the RHONY star’s topless selfie in the Daily Dish, cheering for the RHONY mother’s decision to go “au naturel in more ways than one.”
The challenge with warm weather lies in how to stay chic while wearing less. Perhaps deciding that 2017 should reign as the Summer Of Real Housewives Topless Selfies, Dorinda became the leader of the RHONY pack by posing without clothes on top. However, going topless when it comes to clothes doesn’t mean going without a cover-up, at least not if you’re a clever Real Housewife Of New York queen. Medley chose to complement her cute bikini bottoms with an even cuter pair of very large lettuce leaves.
Bravo TV made its approval clear.
“The Real Housewives of New York City mom just posted a (nearly) topless selfie on Instagram, and we think she looks absolutely ravishing.”
Looking perky in the Instagram post that also featured a chic hat and sunglasses, Dorinda is shown beaming brightly. As for the question of why choose lettuce leaves to replace the bikini top, Medley had an explanation for the vegetables in the caption.
“I told you I never waste food!” wrote Dorinda, adding, “#summerfun” and “#lettucesee.”
In addition to earning acclaim for creating a lettuce bikini top that’s safe for work viewing, Medley wowed fans with her humor and classy act.
“Dorinda… you are my favorite! No fear, absolutely fierce… with class and gumption,” wrote one fan.
“DORINDA I LOVE YOU! you’re so cool lol,” gushed another.
Other followers agreed, with terms such as “cute” and “amazing.”
Medley isn’t the only Real Housewives Of New York star to qualify for a RHONY topless edition by showing some skin on Instagram, however. In April, RHONY star Luann D’Agostino went totally topless on Instagram (you can see her topless photo here).
However, Luann’s followers weren’t quite as complimentary as Dorinda’s fans.
“Gross,” wrote one D’Agostino follower.
“I guess now @bethennyfrankel can ask how HER daughter feels about her nude pics over dinner…” commented another.
Joining Medley and Luann in the Real Housewives Of New York Topless Edition, RHONY star Carole Radziwill once opted for watermelons in her own cheeky photo, using the melons as a tasteful cover-up.
“Got Melons?” wrote Radziwill.
While Medley received applause from her fans on her topless selfie, Carole earned a mixture of yays and nays.
“tell me why I feel like we need a pic like this LOL,” joked one fan.
But others felt that her watermelon pose wasn’t appropriate.
“Ugh. Nooo!” vetoed one of Radziwill’s followers.
And apparently Carole has kept her cleavage in perky shape.
In her new blog, Dorinda complimented Carole, noting that the RHONY cast member’s event was “amazing” and that she looked gorgeous as well, particularly the part of her covered up by watermelons in that Instagram photo.
“[Carole] (all of her) looked amazing,” wrote Medley. “I especially noted her perfectly shaped breasts!”
