Who Is Dorinda's Daughter Hannah? 'The Real Housewives Of New York' Star & Her Kid Are Pretty Much Twins
One of my favorite parts about The Real Housewives of New York City is that even though some of the ladies may stay out all night partying or filming their own music videos, somehow, their kids all wind up mostly normal. Take, for example, Dorinda Medley's daughter. Hannah Lynch is Dorinda's daughter with her first husband, and watching Hannah on RHONY is kind of like watching a 21-year-old version Dorinda running around, because the second season Housewife's daughter is a carbon copy of her mom in a lot of ways. They're both loud, opinionated, and have enviable closets. If there's anything that keeps families together, it's a shared taste in clothes and shoes, which might explain why in addition to being so similar, Dorinda and Hannah are super close.
Dorinda's first season on the show was a lot of fun, and Hannah explained to Bravo's The Daily Dish that she's a big supporter of her mom's. "I respect the Housewives franchise, I respect my mother, and I'm really, really happy for her this new season, I think she really came into her stride, where last year it was totally foreign. I think this season's gonna be really great for her."
So, as this season continues, I'm looking forward to seeing not just more of Dorinda, but more of her daughter, as well, because she has a lot of surprising qualities.
She Might Be The Next Hannah Horvath
Hannah told Daily Dish, "I've realized I've experienced a lot in my life, and I've grown up in an environment, especially with my mom, that I've seen a lot of things, I've experienced a lot of things, I have one hell of a voice." So Hannah is working on a writing career and told Daily Dish that her focus is "short, humorous non-fiction."
She's In A Very Cool Relationship
Emphasis on the word "cool," because these two make me feel like the oldest granny in town.
She Honors Richard Medley
Dorinda and Hannah have been working hard to move past their grief over the untimely death of Dorinda's second husband, Richard Medley, and, while it's been a long and difficult road, as shown on RHONY, they've both done a lot of healing.
She Has An Unreal Fashion Sense
Oh, you know, just a normal day, trying on a gorgeous Oscar de la Renta gown!
And She's Modeled
Hannah told Daily Dish that, at one point, she did some modeling, but she's given it up. "It was something I thought about, but at the end of the day, I'm in school," she said.
She Might Be The Next Bravo Star
First step, selfies with Andy Cohen in his dressing room... next stop, spinoff series starring Hannah Lynch and the rest of the Real Housewives of New York City kids. Okay, that last part is just what I wish would happen, but keep an eye on Hannah — like her mom, she might be destined for reality TV stardom!
