During a new interview, Dorinda opened up about her “difficult start,” which was preceded by a flood disaster at her Berkshires home, a broken rib, and a split from former boyfriend John Mahdessian, before revealing if she has regrets over her many tiffs with Tinsley Mortimer and discussing the upcoming reunion.
“I had a difficult start,” Dorinda explained to DailyMailTV on June 10. “I was coming into it with a lot of personal things going on in my life. I wasn’t only reconstructing [my] house. I was reconstructing my life along with it.”
After being seen feuding with a number of co-stars on RHONY, including Ramona Singer, who slammed her for attacking others, and Tinsley, who labeled her a “bully” after an apple orchard blowout, Dorinda admitted that she isn’t “great” at expressing herself when she is struggling emotionally.
“I believe when I’m on the show I don’t go on the show with a script,” she explained.
As for potential regrets, Dorinda said she would have liked for her drama with Tinsley to play out differently.
“Of course, I could have handled it differently. You know, I wish Tinsley super well. I’m glad she’s happy. I pray it works out. But at the time, that was my journey,” she explained. “You always have regrets. [And] we can take care of all that at the reunion.”
Although Dorinda and her castmates are expected to film the reunion for season 12 soon, Dorinda admitted she isn’t sure if she will be doing so virtually or in person.
“You know, we’ve heard nothing [about the reunion],” she revealed. “I know everybody thinks that we have some, you know, information people that don’t.”
