Her old life: RHONY season 11 with (l-r) Bethenny Frankel, Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Dorinda and Tinsley Mortimer
In the fall she was in a different place.
She had a tough time during the RHONY Season 12 reunion. ‘Literally, to tell you the truth, I probably should have taken off this season,’ Dorinda said to show host Andy Cohen, 52. ‘I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown.’
Throughout the season, Dorinda had been accused by her co-stars of insulting them to deflect from her own pain, and sidestepped questions about her behavior when questioned.
In August, she was let go from RHONY, and press reports claimed her mean attitude was behind the break—but Andy himself said she just needed a ‘pause,’ and he was open to her return.
‘I think that was more overwhelmed this season than I’ve ever been, and I don’t think I reached out for help enough,’ Dorinda acknowledged, citing a broken rib she had suffered, her breakup with boyfriend John Mahdessian, the death of a friend, and the flooding of her vacation home. ‘I couldn’t catch a break,’ she recalled. ‘I just didn’t want to be there. I was angry. I was really angry about what was happening about it, and I definitely projected it. And I did feel like I couldn’t cope with it. I really did. I was at my wits’ end.’
