Dorinda Medley’s Boyfriend John Mahdessian Doesn't Care What You Think About Him
The hottest new cast member of “The Real Housewives of New York” has a gut, chest hair and sweats at the mere sight of sun.

Meet John Mahdessian, owner of the Upper East Side’s high-end dry cleaner, Madame Paulette, and boyfriend of Dorinda Medley, “RHONY’s” latest unmarried addition.

Mahdessian is the show’s breakout star this year, thanks to his and Medley’s cantankerous relationship, his shameless flirting and his larger-than-life personality.

In one episode, the 49-year-old is caught grinding against Housewives Sonja Morgan and Kristen Taekman like a horny spring-breaker; in another, he’s partying it up solo, to everyone’s horror, at midtown’s Beautique.

Last week, Ramona Singer called Mahdessian “crass” and accused him of using her pal for her swank uptown pad and connections.

But the so-called “Sultan of Stains” — who grew up in Little Neck, Queens, and is now the couture cleaner of choice for everyone from Anna Wintour to Lady Gaga — is unfazed by the attention, good and bad.

“It really doesn’t do anything for me because when I go to the Met Gala, the richest, most prominent people recognize me,” says Mahdessian, who keeps a pack of Marlboro Lights within reach.

“The higher up you go, the more I’m respected and recognized. In my own little world, being in the business for so many years and catering to the richest people, I’m used to that. It’s normal.”
