I always imagined one of the best perks of being an Uber or Lyft driver (besides the extra $) would be the people and stories you encounter along your way. Everyone uses it so you’re bound to run into a celebrity or two and one driver came to us with a story from not even 24 hours ago with RHONY’s own Dorinda Medley. Read below:
“I .. am… shaking..
So I do a car ride service whenever I have a free time and today I decided to do it. I start my thing, and usually I just park and wait and read until I get a request. 10 minutes goes by, I get a request and I accepted.
As soon as I accepted, the name “Dorinda” popped up and to much of my chagrin I think of nothing. But of course I’m secretly thinking, huh how many New Yorkers do I know with the name dorinda? It would be wild if I get the actual RHONY Dorinda. BUT, in case if it is the actual dorinda let me spray myself with some Chanel hoping to make a good first impression with some awesome smelling Chanel.
I pull up to the location, I see a woman wearing a gold Chanel tweed jacket and white jeans, blond hair with glasses on top of her head. IT IS FUCKING DORINDA OMFG! She comes in and I confirm the name:
Me: Hi, Dorinda?
D: that’s it.
Inside, I was feeling all sorts of emotion. I was shaking. I wanted to cry. Her orchid scent graced my car and she begins to call a guy (not sure who) and they go into a deep conversation. She mentions someone is a “big narcissist”, she mentioned Luann and how she needs to take a break and that she’d be willing to lend her berkshires residence as a place to relax or something. Then she said something which I’m never going to forget “it is so hard to find good people”
We pull up to the destination, and I mustered every strength and courage to ask for pictures.
Me: um..I love you 😭 I’m a big fan
D: omg! That’s so nice! (With a big grin)
Me: can we take a picture?
D: of course!
Me: 😭 thank you! You better take the reigning queen title next season now that bethenny is leaving
D: heheheheheh yay (as she rubs my shoulder and my shirt, which I’m never going to wash btw)
D: bye so nice to meet you!
I.. have gone to heaven y’all. I wanted to ask her if she can clip me with her slurry voice but decided to hold back because she was nice to me.
UPDATE: DORINDA JUST FUCKING TIPPED ME YALL. 20%!!!!!!”
