Dorinda Medley suffered from “chronic financial insecurity” following the death of her husband Richard.

It’s, to varying degrees, a recurring theme with the Real Housewives. Women who marry well either choose not to participate in the finances or choose not to have them disclosed.

Dorinda MedleyShe was, as she herself admitted, such a wife to her late husband Richard Medley. She was the lady who ate lunch and attended charity galas. But the former Real Housewives of New York star left the finances to her late husband. And recently, Dorinda admitted she regrets the lifestyle.

Dorinda was “completely unaware” of some of Richard’s financial decisions.

in one new interview On Trinny Woodall’s podcast Fearless, after Richard’s death, Dorinda said she had “no electricity” at Blue Stone Manor.

“When he died, there were all sorts of things I didn’t know about at all. Things he’d invested in, people he’d invested in, money he’d borrowed, promises he’d made. It was almost like I didn’t know him and that will never happen again,” Dorinda revealed.

At this point, Trinny asked the RHONY graduate if she was “once again chronic financial insecurity”?

“It was awful,” she replied.

Dorinda said she was “comfortable” with having her finances managed by others, even to the point that her utility bills went unpaid.

“It’s been the last two years that I didn’t know what was going on. After Richard’s death, I had no electricity in my house at Bluestone Manor because I didn’t know who was paying the bills. Can you imagine that?”

Dorinda spoke about how she still feels traumatized because she is in this situation.

“Daily. I’m worried…. and even when I’m fine and stuff. I’m scared of money. I don’t like it… I’m scared of it,” she admitted.

Dorinda’s parents instilled in her the idea of ​​”always” having a “plan B” when it came to finances. She recalls that they were “always very worried about money.”

“I think a little fear is good. I’m surrounded by women in their fifties who are having a financial disaster and aren’t going to get any better. “Earning power is changing,” explained Dorinda.

Surely her paychecks from RHONY would have helped. But it seems that Dorinda is in control and may be suffering from a residual anxiety.
