Dorinda Medley is saying "clip" to “Real Housewives of New York.”

The 55-year-old Bravo star announced her departure from the reality show on Monday. She appeared in six seasons.

“What a journey this has been. I have laughed and cried and tried to Make it Nice…,” Medley began her statement on Instagram.

“But all things must come to an end. This was a great outlet for me to heal when my late husband Richard passed away,” she added. “I have met so many interesting people and learned so much about myself, about life and about women along the way.”

She went on to thank those who were part of her journey for several years, writing, “Thank you to Bravo and NBC for the incredible ride and to my cast mates for constant stimulation and entertainment. I wish you all health, happiness and success.”

Medley joined the cast in 2015 and quickly rose the ranks to become a fan-favorite.

Her exit follows Tinsley Mortimer’s, who announced she was exiting the reality series in June. The star moved to Chicago to be with her fiancé, Scott Kluth.

Last August, the ultimate fan-favorite Bethenny Frankel abruptly resigned from housewife duties. She was part of the show since 2008.

In an exclusive statement to Variety, she said she "decided to leave the ‘Housewives’ franchise to explore my next chapter.”
