Tinsley Mortimer’s Mom Dale Mercer Defends Sonja Morgan; Backs Up Sonja’s Claims Of Never Drinking At Home

While the Real Housewives of New York is clearly going through a transition, I’ll never get sick of Sonja Morgan being on my screen. Sonjarita is as pure as it gets, even when other ladies are coming for her businesses (Bethenny Frankel) or projecting their issues onto her (Ramona Singer). Sonja’s been dealing with a lot in these past few seasons and it definitely shows. But she always finds some way to bring the funnies.

Last week’s RHONY episode showed the ladies attempting to confront Sonja about her drinking again. It all came after Sonja and newbie Bershan Shaw got into a fight that led to Sonja with a Sexy J breaking the glass of a fire extinguisher. It looked like an accident as a result of a little too much drinking and high tensions. But the ladies were acting like Sonja committed some terrible crime. Luann de Lesseps even had the nerve to say Sonja’s actions were worse than when she literally (allegedly) threatened a cop and got arrested. Sounds like some more projection yet again.

At this point, I’m ready for Season 13 of the Real Housewives of New York to be over already. And it honestly makes me sad as hell to say that. RHONY used to bring reliable entertainment year after year. I never get tired of Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer’s Thing One and Thing Two antics. I loved the mess that was Tinsley Mortimer, particularly when Dale Mercer was involved. Before Bethenny Frankel started bashing Bravo, she was the Queen B. But this year, it’s just a bust.

RHONY has gone through a major shift in the past year, much of it due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Eboni K. Williams’ entrance as the first Black cast member has brought conversations about racism and white privilege to the forefront. Luann de Lesseps is past her days of falling in bushes and sleeping with pirates, opting for yoga and alcohol-free rose instead. And the majority of scenes in Season 13 fluctuate from being dark and gloomy to downright boring. Although she came in hot, Bershan Shaw had a point when she called them a bunch of “boring grandmas.”

Real Housewives Of New York Tinsley Mortimer

Tinsley Mortimer departed from the Real Housewives of New York to chase her fairytale delusions fantasies with Scott Kluth in Chicago. And it was going well — they were engaged and had puppies that they treated more like children. And then, the fantasy fell apart when the two called off their engagement earlier this month. 

The RHONY It-Girl left EVERYTHING to be with the Coupon King — her home, her friends and her job. And now it seems like it was all for nothing and she was apparently “blindsided” by the split. Meanwhile, Scott claims they’ve been over for months and Tins wasn’t getting the memo. Honestly, I could see both sides, but Tinsley did pull out some receipts from Valentine’s Day that signal they were an item quite recently.

Former It-Girl turned Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer is known for living in a fairy tale world. All she wants is a happily ever after no matter what it takes. She’s taken to freezing her eggs, ignoring red flags, and ultimately giving up her life and career to try to find it with Scott Kluth. 

But that fantasy came crashing down last week when Scott (who apparently hates the press) ran to the tabloids to announce he and Tins have been done for months. Her friends responded, saying she was totally blindsided by the statement. However, new information might reveal that both might have been telling the truth. Apparently, the drama results from miscommunication.

Tinsley Mortimer’s Mom Dale Mercer Defends Her For Not Voting In Previous Presidential Election

During the Season 9 Real Housewives of New York reunion, Andy Cohen asked the cast members who they voted for.

When he got to Tinsley Mortimer, she admitted that she didn’t actually vote, and she’s still catching some heat for the statement.

Well, everything stayed the same on Real Housewives Of New York except for one little fairy, who reclaimed her light, and flew away to the hope of a giant walk-in closet with a promising sparkle in her eye. That’s right, Tinsley Mortimer has left the building. Specifically, she’s left the long-term hotel she was living in.

In secret Tinsley went on an overnight rendezvous to visit Scott Kluth. Then she decided, on a whim, to return to NY, pack her stuff and move to Chicago! It was now or never. It was that or be looking down the barrel of turning into either Ramona Singer or Dorinda Medley. Tinsley does not need to learn her lesson twice as to what happens when you choose Real Housewives Of New York over being a real and actual housewife. She doesn’t want to be crying over eggs for the rest of her life!

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.

On Real Housewives Of New York Tonight
There is a new Real Housewives of New York episode on tonight. Normally, the Big Apple residents come through. However, this season, there’s no plot in sight. The show used to be so great, but at this point, it almost feels like a chore to watch. Let’s hope that things pick up tonight. The ladies celebrate Halloween. Previously, they’ve celebrated at Blue Stone Manor, Dorinda Medley’s home in the Berkshires. Tonight, they participate in a holiday-themed tour called Blood Manor.
Tinsley Mortimer returns from visiting Scott Kluth in Chicago. She has some “big news” to share with her costars friends. Most likely, she’s just going to confirm that she and Scott are “officially” back together, which is a surprise to no one. Or maybe she’s gonna tell them that she’s making the move to Chicago, which, again is a surprise to absolutely no one. But, at least Tinsley’s mom Dale Mercer makes an appearance, which is always entertaining… at Tinsley’s expense, of course.
