Instagram flew into a frenzy on Tuesday morning when Real Housewives of New York star, Dorinda Medley, announced her departure from the show on a post. The veteran housewife has lasted six seasons on the hit Bravo TV series and left fans with multiple one-liners, including, "I made it nice!"

Medley shared the announcement by captioning her post, "What a journey this has been, I have laughed and cried and tried to Make it Nice... But all things must come to an end." She continued by acknowledging the outlet that the show provided following her husband Richard's death, saying, "I have met so many interesting people and learned so much about myself, about life and about women along the way."

The 55-year-old finished her post by thanking Bravo, NBC, and her castmates, finishing with another signature expression, "Clip!" The photo shows her seated in a sparkly black cocktail dress, holding a black fan with a microphone pinned to her ensemble. Following her post, she received an outpouring of support from fans, castmates, and celebrities alike.

The announcement also attracted attention from others involved in the Housewives franchise. Andy Cohen commented, "What a ride. Unforgettable." Melissa Gorga said, "Say it isn't so. Legend." Other housewives including Tamra Judge, Lisa Rinna, Erika Girardi, and Kyle Richards all commented their support while current castmates Leah McSweeney and Ramona Singer expressed their thoughts as well.
