Tinsley Mortimer Real Housewives of New York city RHONY

Tinsley Mortimer Announces Departure From Real Housewives Of New York

On tonight’s Real Housewives of New York episode, Tinsley Mortimer told the cast that she was back with Scott Kluth and she’s moving to Chicago. Well, you can’t be a New York Housewife if you don’t actually reside in New York. And since we all know Tins and Scott are engaged at this point, it’s been understood for a while that this has to be Tinsley’s last season on the show.

While the episode aired, Tinsley shared some words about her experience as a Housewife on social media. And, spoiler alert: she used past tense verbs, signifying the end of her time on the show.

Tinsley shared an Instagram post with some video footage of her engagement and some photos filming Real Housewives of New York throughout the years.  She wrote, “Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all my fans and friends who supported me and are happy for my fairy tale ending.”

She acknowledged, “Without #RHONY, I would never have met my prince charming, Scott. Being a Housewife was such a fun experience, and I thank @bravoandy and all the wonderful people at Shed Media and @bravotv.” She  concluded her post with “I love you all so much!!!” And she shared some hashtags: “#chicago #couponking @couponcabin #fairytale #legend  #happyending.” #legend is overkill, but anyway. Let’s move on. Dorinda Medley may not be happy for Tinsley (ever), but most people are.

Andy Cohen commented, “Thank you for your eggs and [mom] Dale [Mercer] and all the fun!”

Leah McSweeney told Tinsley, “You give me jaded ass hope! Love you Tinz.” Sonja Morgan commented, “Omg the wedding dress. I hope you wear that ONE.” Clearly, Sonja didn’t realize that was just a screenshot from the episode when Tinsley tried on wedding dresses and FaceTimed her frozen eggs.

Sonja also took credit for all of Tinsley’s happiness with another comment. Sonja wrote, “And without me you wouldn’t have met. So happy for you girl. You got the fairytale. Moved to NYC to live with a true girlfriend who was there for you with open arms. I got you on RHONY and my co star introduced you to Scott the man. May all your dreams come true. I’m always here.”

What a weird message. She does seem genuinely happy for Tinsley, but what was with all the compliments to herself? I guess Sonja’s not wrong about the series of events. It’s possible that Tinsley wouldn’t have been on the show if it wasn’t for Sonja. And if she wasn’t on the show, Carole Radziwill wouldn’t have introduced her to Scott. It’s just such a weird comment to leave, Sonja. I don’t blame Leah to responding to Sonja’s remark with “wtf?” because we all felt that.
