DailyMail.com has contacted representatives for Medley for comment.
A rep for Medley denied Page Six’s claims and said she left early Saturday night because she was suffering from a “routine cold” and didn’t want to “expose others.”
“She wanted to come out before the crowd came out so she wouldn’t expose others to her cold, she came in right at the start of the show for the same reason.”
“She was never drunk and didn’t make anyone cry, one of Luann’s cabaret staff was kind enough to order her an Uber to get her home safely.”

However, the publication obtained a video of the event which shows Medley dancing near other members of the public.
A member of the public also told Page Six that they saw Medley apparently “drunk” and arguing with a staff member.
“When we arrived (in the lobby) it appeared that she was in conversation with someone, a young female manager, so we waited for a picture, but quickly realized it was not a conversation. and Dorinda was yelling at the woman and getting in her face,’ the woman alleged.
“She was clearly drunk and got more and more drunk as the show progressed and she kept jumping up to be included in the show while Luann was on stage. The way she is on ‘RHONY’ was exactly how she behaved that night.
The woman also claimed to have seen Medley “screaming” at an employee.
“One of the staff told us on our way out that (Medley) was drunk and rude to the staff and that’s why they asked her to leave, especially since she thought she didn’t have to. pay his bill, which started all the madness,’ the source added.
Medley denied the allegations during a recent Instagram Live: “No, I wasn’t escorted – I left because I was tired,” she said with a laugh.
Medley’s drinking habits have been exposed before, and in 2020 Page Six revealed that she was fired from RHONY for being “nasty drunk.”
It comes after talks for The Real Housewives Of New York: Legacy stalled.
Fans who were hoping to see the original stars of RHONY reunite on the small screens for the Legacy Edition, however, recently learned of some disappointing news regarding their new Bravo show.
It was reported that Bravo had “lost interest” in Real Housewives of New York City: Legacy due to a dispute over how much the cast should be paid, according to Page Six.
Last year, it was announced that a major overhaul of RHONY would take place, essentially splitting the series in two, after 13 seasons.
The Legacy cast would have included Dorinda and Luann, as well as Kelly Bensimon, Sonja Morgan, Jill Zarin.
