Scott Kluth

Bethenny Frankel

If you are a die-hard fan of the Real Housewives of New York, you got whiplash from all of the news surrounding the cast this week. Tinsley Mortimer and Scott Kluth called off their engagement, and she might be eyeing a RHONY return. The Season 13 trailer dropped. And after 8 years, Bethenny Frankel finalized her divorce from Jason Hoppy and is engaged to Paul Bernon. 

While it could be a coincidence, it was fishy that B’s engagement news broke almost simultaneously with the trailer dropping. Bethenny’s divorce has been so public, why wouldn’t she want the official end to be the same way? Plus, if she is engaged to Paul, she knows that’s the kind of happily ever after news that breaks headlines. So it seems like she was riding the RHONY news wave, and some of her former castmates think so too.

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.

Despite not being on the air,  the Real Housewives of New York is dominating headlines this week. The Season 13 trailer just dropped, featuring the show’s newest (and first Black) housewife Eboni K. Williams. Bethenny Frankel is finally divorced from her ex-demon husband Jason Hoppy and engaged to her boo Paul Bernon. And Scott Kluth and Tinsley Mortimer broke up, and won’t stop telling their different versions of the story to the press.

And apparently, Tins and her friends aren’t going to back down with the Scott bashing. They’re sticking to the story that he “blindsided” her with the breakup and ran to the tabloids immediately after, while he claims they’ve been off for months. But now, Team Tinsley has more proof.

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.

It seemed like the perfect reality TV love story — the two were introduced on the show by none other than Carole Radziwell. She ditched the show to move to Chicago to be with him and start her life. However, while Tinsley was more ready than ever, apparently Scott still wasn’t emotionally mature enough to settle down with a literal princess. And last week, he apparently dumped her for good. Ouch.

When Tinsley Mortimer left Real Housewives of New York to live with Scott Kluth in Chicago, the fans were happy for her. Tinsley spent her time on the show talking about her desire to get married again and eventually become a mother.

An instant after Tins left the show, Scott popped the question. They didn’t tie the knot, blaming the pandemic for a “postponement.” However, it looks like that wedding just isn’t going to happen.

Eboni K. Williams

Eboni K. Williams will join Real Housewives of New York. Eboni, who is a television host and attorney, is the first Black New York Housewife.

“I’m excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife. Can’t wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn’t been seen before,” Eboni stated. Eboni has already confirmed that the issue of race will be addressed on the show.

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.
