Following Medley's announcement, "RHONY" alum Bethenny Frankel took to Instagram, writing: "Every woman in this world wears a little sparkle, some in their dress, and some in their eyes. Use each moment to make another's eyes sparkle and to warm a heart. Don't let anyone or anything dull your sparkle. Don't let the insecurities of others dull your sparkle. You will be missed…let the next chapter begin. #RHONY."
