Tinsley Mortimer Denies Dating Billy Bush; Mom Dale Mercer Says She Did

We witnessed a LOT this past season of Real Housewives of New City. Viewers are probably going to remember Bethenny Frankel’s Miami meltdown for years to come. Needless to say, this season delivered as always. Tinsley Mortimer finally coming to play was just the cherry on top.

Tinsley dealt with some loss this season. First, she broke up with boyfriend Scott Kluth, after dealing with all of the women inserting their opinions into her relationship. Then she lost Bambi. All the while dealing with a complicated relationship with her mother, Dale Mercer. Dale never seems to give Tinsley a break. I still shudder to think about all the things she said to Tinsely while she worked that carnival.

The season has concluded and Dale is not slowing down! This time however, she’s sharing some fun hits about her daughter. Tinsley was on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen and Camille Grammer Tuesday night. Dale was the guest bartender and stole the whole show. Andy Cohen addressed the rumors circulating over the last month about Tinsley dating Billy Bush. Tinsley attempted to evade the question, telling Andy, “Billy has been a friend of mine for a long time. I did see him, we went bowling, we had a lot of fun, but we’re not dating…We’re just friends.”

Never missing an opportunity to get the real dirt, Andy went straight to Dale, asking her thoughts about Billy. Dale did not hesitate to spill the tea, and shared with Andy, “I don’t know Billy but I know that she did have two dates with him.” While Andy’s face shined with pure happiness, Tinsley immediately went on the defense, saying, “That’s not even true! I did not have two dates with him, what are you talking about?”

As People reported, Tinsley was spotted with Billy this past June at Brooklyn Bowl. Tinsley shared a similar response to People Magazine last month about the nature of her relationship with Billy. She did, however, elaborate to the magazine that, “I am actually dating somebody – I’m not going to say who – who has children. It’s good and it’s cute and it’s nice.”

She added, “You know I’ve been a part of the family a little bit and it’s a good thing. So, we’ll see.” Hopefully this means we won’t have to hear about Scott on the next season of RHONY. Plus, if Tinsley has actually found her match, that tagline can officially die!
