Throughout it all, Medley says she she learned a lot about herself — and was finally able to embrace the fact that she is “a strong, empowered woman.”
“I feel very happy with who I am, how I am, and where I am in life now,” she insists. “It hit home when I even got rid all these size zero dresses that I used to where when I first met Richard, that I was saving for some reason. And I looked at them and said, ‘I’m not that person anymore and that’s okay.’ I’m a really great me now. I’m sort of in a really good, empowered place, and I can run myself emotionally, financially, physically, and spiritually. What comes of that, we’ll see!”
Still, with that came “a sort of no-bulls–t attitude” that Medley says inspired most of the conflicts with her costars.
“I was filming with two construction sites, a broken rib, and all this emotional stuff going on,” Medley recounts. “I am sort of a person that takes in a lot and holds it in. And I think if I were to redo it, I would have expressed more about what I was going through to my castmates. But I was vulnerable, and it definitely made me more reactive. I just I didn’t have any time for a fairy tale.”
“What you’re going to see i s… my castmates perceived as me being angry,” Medley teases. ‘But I was going through so much s—, and a lot of these New York Housewives are very good at deflection. So you’ll see, sometimes I was like, ‘What are you doing?’ I just called it out.”
“Hey, at least it makes for good TV,” she jokes.
