Confirming this week that The Real Housewives of New York City cast member Dorinda Medley was fired from the show, she now stands to lose more than just her television contract.

In return for promoting the Tony Oriana apartment building on the show, Medley could live rent-free in a three-bedroom condo. 

“She did a great job getting attention for the place. The property company were very happy with it,” a source close to the show said.

But since her contract has effectively been cut from the show, she could lose her apartment as well. That would leave her jobless, and homeless.

It is not clear on what other terms the apartment was negotiated for, as sources have confirmed that Medley still lives in the building with no sign of moving out.

“She’s a very shrewd business person. She’s very good at leveraging her platform,” a source said.

Medley was apparently fired from the show for becoming “mean” when drunk.

“That’s just not where they want the show to go. In this climate of social justice and cancel culture, she was not a good representative of the show or the network,” a set insider confirmed.

The source also added that if Medley handled the situation differently, she could still have been employed by the network.

“If she’d have said (at the end of the season), ‘Look — I’ve been depressed and that’s why I’m acting like this,’ or, ‘I miss my’ and said she’d work on it, I think it would have been different”
