When Dorinda Medley started filming this season of The Real Housewives of New York, she brought her boyfriend, John Mahdessian, around the ladies. During the first couple of episodes, he caused quite the trouble on the show with Bethenny Frankel. Dorinda was disappointed with his actions and he has been surprisingly absent from the show since that meltdown. But they are still together and it sounds like Dorinda is learning to keep him away from the drama.

According to a new report, Dorinda Medley recently opened up about her relationship with John and she revealed that she doesn’t like to bring him around Ramona Singer.

The two had a big blowout at John’s party, where he wanted to celebrate his clients in the dry-cleaning industry.

How Dorinda Medley is coping with her troublesome man

Medley admits that she doesn’t bring him around the other ladies, including Ramona. She keeps them separate, which is why you don’t see John and Ramona in the same scenes on The Real Housewives of New York.

"It's not that I don't care; I always care. I keep them separate," Dorinda shared about maintaining the peace between John and Ramona, according to Bravo, adding, "I keep them like dogs that fight, I keep them in separate cages. And I kind of had to decide that sort of halfway or pretty much from the beginning of the season. I've done that throughout. I make time for both — well, obviously, I'm in a relationship with John, but I keep them in separate cages."

He was always marketing his business on the show and this didn’t sit well with Bethenny Frankel. Many fans wrote to Dorinda on Twitter, telling her that she could do so much better than him, encouraging her to break up with him. This hasn't happened, however.
