Speaking openly about the horrendous ratings on Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef, Dorinda gave Bravoholics hope by saying she's down to return to the failing show.

Plugging her upcoming appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Dorinda joked, "I'm going on Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday. So that'll be fun. I'm excited. I hope I remember how to do it. I really do. I'm actually getting nervous."

When it comes to season 13's tanking ratings, Dorinda said it's not all her former co-stars' fault.

"Well, listen, you know, what's been nice is that you know, we got to remember too. I'm not being, but it was COVID. It was a tough season to film. You know, it's one thing to do COVID filming when you're in Beverly Hills or New Jersey or stuff. You have all that outdoor space. You've got to remember we as New York girls, that's what we do. New York and people and restaurants," she stated, defending the ladies.

"I can't take full credit. I do think it was a tough year. Just, it is a tough year and you know, but I can't say much about that," she continued, joking, "Cause I'm on pause, like a good Memorex tape. I’m on pause!"

As Radar reported, network officials are scrambling to fix RHONY after horrible ratings and reunion drama with Ramona Singer.

“There is still no confirmed date to shoot the reunion show after it being postponed twice. First, August 5th is canceled and now the September date has been canceled too. But even more concerning, there is no date to start filming season 14 on the books and talk about putting the show on permanent hiatus,” sources tell us.
