You can’t say she didn’t warn us! RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that Dorinda Medley sent a strong warning to her high school classmates in her 1983 yearbook – to “watch out” for her future success! The outspoken Real Housewives of New York star attended Berkshire School, a private co-ed boarding school in Sheffield, Massachusetts. According to the housewife’s senior year bio, Medley knew way back then that she was going to make it big. Click through the gallery to see shocking photos of the famed housewife as a teen way before she made it to the city that never sleeps!
Unlike her signature short hairstyle she sports now, Medley had long, blonde locks as a teenager, as seen here in her 1983 senior class photo.
Front and center! The reality star played on the school’s varsity soccer team, shown here.
Even back in high school Medley appears to have been always on the defense! Here she is photographed trying to grab the ball from a player of the opposing team.
John Mahdessian’s longtime girlfriend also kept busy working as a tour guide at her school. In the photo shown here, Medley kept it casual in the boarding school’s required navy and white school uniform.
If only Medley could remind herself of her wise words from when she was a teen! In her senior year bio, shown here, the boisterous housewife shared some advice with her high school class: “Avoid comparing yourself with others.” On a recent episode of RHONY, Medley brought co-star Luann de Lesseps to tears after drunkenly comparing their drinking habits. Medley poked fun at de Lesseps’ arrest, saying, “At least I don’t have a mug shot!”
Medley has been dating Mahdessian for six years following her husband Richard Medley’s unexpected death in 2011. Back in high school, Medley listed “boyfriends” as one of her highlights!
Medley may have looked innocent back in high school, but today, she’s known around New York City as a sassy troublemaker. On a recent episode of RHONY, Medley outed her friend Sonja Morgan for cheating on her ex-husband years ago.
