Dorinda Medley is reportedly taking a break from longtime boyfriend, John Mahdessian.

John has been a divisive character on the show, and many of the ladies have expressed their dislike for him, feeling that he is clingy and a little uncouth.

"'They're starting to live separate lives," a source told Page Six. "'He'll attend the opening of an envelope, and she goes out for work, but 'she's really low-key. 'He's all about being the guy on the town since 'she's been on the show."

Dorinda has herself often expressed that she likes having time away from John, seeing each other just a few times a week.

"'It's complicated. 'They've been together seven years and just hit a rough patch. 'They're working through some things," another source revealed. 

It has been rumored that producers of Real Housewives of New York may be ditching a couple of the ladies for the next season - but Dorinda's spot is safe for now according to reports.
