It is so confusing to follow Tinsley Mortimer’slove life. One second she’s dating Scott Kluth. The next second they are on a break. Then they are on vacation together immediately after. The only consistent thing about their relationship status is the knowledge that their relationship status is very inconsistent.
Bethenny Frankel called last night’s episode “The Crying Game” before it aired, which left me to wonder how this trip would differ from any other? I mean, tears, drinks, and stabbing oneself in the hand are just par for the course when The Real Housewives of New York hit the shores of any foreign country, right? As it turns out, this Colombia trip did involve a lot of crying, but it also involved ONE AMAZING WIG courtesy of Luann de Lesseps. So all was not lost!
The South American destination of Cartegena didn’t know what was coming until it saw the Ramonacoaster rolling up in a friggin wheelchair, but the ladies didn’t waste any time making their presence known. After packing montages, the group somehow makes it past airport security to officially leave the country. This is, we assume, an auspicious start.
Okay, let’s do this. We start with Ben Rimalower and Billy Stritch walking Luann through her talking-while-singing-while-snapping version of “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” Luann is taking her upcoming cabaret show #CountessAndFriends very seriously – so seriously, in fact, that she’s bringing Sonja in on the act. Because when you think, “I need this act to be classed up a little bit” you naturally think of the woman who lounges in her own filthy bed surrounded by plastic tarps as she sniffs yesterday’s underwear. Enter: Lady Morgan.
Are Tinsley Mortimerand Scott Kluthback together or not? It is always tough to tell with these two and the answer seems to change from day to day. At this very moment, it seems like the relationship is back on or at the very least they are trying to rekindle it.
Tinsley and Scott have been traveling throughout Europe yet again. The Real Housewives of New York cast member only posted one photo with her ex/current boyfriend, but she made sure to give him photo credits for each picture he took; i.e. she wanted everyone to know that he was on that trip.
On filming her second season with the show, “When I came in it was season 9 and I just had been through a lot in Palm Beach and I didn’t realize how traumatic my experience in Palm Beach was until I got to New York. And then living with Sonja and filming a TV show is a lot, so this experience now, season 2, which is season 10, I feel lucky to be a part of this whole franchise, this whole thing. To be able to come in at season 9 and now 10, it’s just great. For me, it’s my life. Look, it’s hard to break it down into seasons but this was such a better time for me. I’m in a better place. I moved out of Sonja’s, I live in the hotel, which is fabulous – I have room service and don’t have to cook, I love it.”
Tinsley adds that she has gotten used to the cameras and has better friendships now. She made “legit” genuine friends. “I started to speak up a little more for myself, too. You definitely see that coming up.” She then apologizes to her 94-year-old grandfather because she curses and she promised him she wouldn’t, but says “sorry, but Sonja was being a bitch and I had to. And just not being truthful. It felt like she wanted to take me down for some reason and I don’t know why.”
Even though Fourth of July was on a Wednesday this year, plenty of reality TV stars still managed to celebrate the party in the middle of the week. Some of them got away to celebrate and others just kicked it in their own backyard with their families.
Out of all the things that the New York Housewives have done, why is it so offensive that Tinsley Mortimer tried on some wedding dresses? Is it normal? No, but who cares? She’s not harming anyone. She wanted to try on some wedding dresses with her mom. So what?
Bethenny Frankelcompared it to trying out coffins, which did not sit well with Tinsley. To make matters worse, Tinsley and Scott Kluthbroke up (again) after that episode aired. I would love to watch Scott watching the episode with Tinsley rocking a wedding dress and crying while she FaceTimed a photo of her frozen eggs. That had to be an interesting experience, but again, it’s really not offensive. Let her live. Then again, wearing a family crest really isn’t a dire sin either, Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morganargued about that during the last episode.
