Who would have thought that Carole Radiziwill setting Tinsley Mortimer up for an on-camera date for
a storyline Real Housewives of New York would result in an engagement? Of course, the story isn’t that simple.
Tinsley and Scott Kluth broke up more times than I can count. They struggled to maintain a long-distance relationship with Scott living in Chicago while Tinsley films RHONY in the Big Apple. Tinsley spent seasons talking about how she wants to get engaged and have a baby and now she finally has that rock. I’m sure her mother Dale Mercer is thrilled, but what does Carole Radiziwill think about the engagement?
Real Housewives of New York fans have watched Tinsley Mortimer and boyfriend Scott Kluth make up and break up
millions of multiple times. Tinsley just wants to be a wife and mother. RHONY viewers even watched Tinsley try on wedding dresses when she wasn’t even engaged. One issue that plagued the couple seemed to be distance. Scott works in Chicago, and Tinsley is based in New York.
Now Tinsley can wear the wedding gown of her dreams, because Scott popped the question. On November 24, Scott proposed on the steps of the Chicago Water Tower while Christmas carolers sang in the background.
When I heard that Bethenny Frankel was leaving the Real Housewives of New York, I was a little sad. Bethenny can be audacious, self-absorbed and always seems to be surrounded by chaos, but she was also a good fit for the show. She was often spot-on in her assessments of her castmates and wasn’t afraid to address issues like Luann de Lesseps’ cabaret obsession or Ramona Singer’s rudeness.
One of Bethenny’s most admirable traits is her business acumen. Within a few years of joining RHONY, Bethenny started her Skinny Girl brand and later sold off the cocktail division of her business, reportedly for big bucks. Last season, Bethenny admitted that her life was overwhelming her and that she was considering simplifying things by selling a part of her company. Over the summer, Bethenny announced she was leaving the show to focus on her daughter, philanthropy and a production partnership with Mark Burnett. And with a more recent announcement, Bethenny continues to focus on her Skinny Girl brand.
There has been a lot of buzz about the Real Housewives of New York since the end of last season. Bethenny Frankel’s announcement that she was leaving RHONY left fans wondering what would happen to the show. Part of the answer came in the form of Leah McSweeney joining the cast.
Recently, there has been even more chatter surrounding the New York ladies. Sonja Morgan was a BravoCon no-show the very same weekend she was allegedly kicked out of a Philadelphia gay bar for bad behavior. Tinsley Mortimer became engaged to on-again-off-again boyfriend Scott Kluth and took a break from filming. And now Luann de Lesseps is weighing in on what the new season will be like–and she is throwing a little shade at Bethenny in the process.
Tinsley Mortimer was noticeably absent from the Real Housewives New York vacation in Mexico. Of course, this was right on the heels of her engagement to Scott Kluth. She may have met Scott while filming the show, but RHONY fans are well-aware that he wants nothing to do with reality TV.
He lives in Chicago. Meanwhile, she
pretends to live in NYC for the show has a hotel room in the Big Apple. How’s that gonna work? Did she just quit the show mid-season? What about those rumors that Scott gave Tinsley an ultimatum to choose him or the show?
Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd went to visit her friend, RHONY’s Ramona Singer, in the Hamptons in August. Kelly had just split from her plastic surgeon boyfriend, Brian Reagan. What better way to mend a broken heart than hanging out with your friends and chilling?
Ramona introduced Kelly to Rick Leventhal, who is a Fox News correspondent, at a BBQ in the Hamptons. In November, Rick put a ring on it after a few months of dating. He proposed to Kelly on the rooftop terrace of his home in New York City.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Yes, we’ve seen the Real Housewives of New York cast travel to Mexico a million times at this point, but to quote Sonja Morgan, “We always have the best time.” Seriously though. The viewers enjoy it, the cast goes all out, and in all honesty, the other Real Housewives shows should take notes. This cast always delivers.
Yes, it would be great to switch up the RHONY cast trip locations, but the ladies always pull through in Mexico. Who could forget Luann de Lesseps drunkenly falling into that bush? What about Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer’s naked heart to heart in the pool? There have been so many classic RHONY moments south of the border. I am sure there will be even more iconic scenes from the Season 12 Mexico trip.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer has been off-and on-again
a million many times with Coupon King Scott Kluth. After spending about a year apart, the duo once again decided to give it another try in October. Again.
RHONY viewers know that all Tinsley wants is a wealthy husband who is ready to fertilize her frozen eggs. Tinsley really wants to be a mom. But given all the drama in this relationship, who would have bet that Scott would commit to Tinsley? Complicating matters is the fact that Scott lives in Chicago, and Tinsley is a New York Housewife.
