‘When BABE approached me, I knew it was a perfect partnership. We are both so extra in everything we do, including the way we celebrate the holidays, and I absolutely love it.’

To enter the holiday decor contest, which is open from Friday, November 20 – Tuesday, December 1, fans of Dorinda were instructed to head over to the official BABE Wine Instagram page.

‘One lucky winner will then receive a $1,000 gift card so they can completely re-do their holiday decorations, pulling inspo from Dorinda’s iconic, over-the-top holiday décor,’ the official statement explained. 

To encourage participation, Dorinda uploaded a video (shot by her good pal Melinda) that gave fans a look at the ‘iconic decor’ inside Blue Stone Manor.

Carrying a BABE wine in hand, Medley elegantly stood in her doorway before gesturing Melinda to come inside and explore. 

Dorinda had on a matching black pajama set with white trim and her signature bleach blonde hair was softly styled. 

There were countless ornament-filled trees, elaborate table settings, twinkle lights, Christmas-themed figurines, and more strewn about the star’s lavish home.

Talking directly to her Instagram followers, Dorinda sat down in a chair in her living room and discussed the contest and its spectacular prizes.

‘Get in the spirit too by entering to win $1000 of home décor and a fridge full of BABE wine to make your place feel like home this holiday season!’ she stated excitedly.  

Chelsea Phillips, General Manager at BABE, explained that the brand partnered with Dorinda ‘to make this season magical’ because she ‘knows a thing or two about holiday joy.’

‘Together we’ll fill some lucky person’s home with lights, festive decorations, snowflakes, and, of course, a fully-stocked fridge of BABE,’ Phillips concluded.

Dorinda has become increasingly active on social media since it was revealed by DailyMail.com in August that she would be leaving the Real Housewives Of New York after six seasons on the Bravo series.

She tried to get ahead of the news at the time by taking to her Instagram account to inform fans early that she would not be returning to the show next year.

‘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 began in her post’s caption.

She said that the series was ‘a great outlet for [her] to heal when [her] late husband Richard passed away’ in 2011.

‘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 Brave and NBC for the ‘incredible ride’ and she also expressed gratitude towards her RHONY castmates for their ‘constant stimulation and entertainment.’

‘I wish you all health, happiness and success,’ she concluded.

A production source told DailyMail.com exclusively at the time that Bravo’s decision to let Dorinda go was ‘a big mistake.’  

‘We’re all surprised as even though she had a tough season, she is a fan favorite who people are rooting for.’

‘Dorinda was the only housewife left who owns both her own apartment in New York City alongside a second home in the country,’ the insider added. ‘You watch, this is an error that they will regret.’      

So long: Dorinda has become increasingly active on social media since it was revealed by DailyMail.com in August that she would be leaving the Real Housewives Of New York after six seasons on the Bravo series
