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.

Heather Thomson appears

Season 13 of Real Housewives of New York will be a time of embracing progress, and also giving a nod to the past. Viewers knew that RHONY would be adding some new blood. Tinsley Mortimer quit the show to move to Chicago with her love (and now fiancé) Scott Kluth. Dorinda Medley’s tirades against all her co-stars, especially Tinsley, led to her eventual firing.

For Season 13, Eboni K. Williams joined the cast as the first Black housewife. Finally! And now we have confirmation that RHONY alum Heather Thomson will also be appearing on the show. Welcome back, Mama!

Real Housewives Of New York Tinsley Mortimer

Tinsley Mortimer’s final season on Real Housewives of New York was a doozy. During Season 12, Tinsley was the object of Dorinda Medley’s unprovoked rage. Dorinda accused Tinsley of secretly carrying on a relationship with off-and-on boyfriend Scott Kluth. Dorinda also attacked Tinsley for not being authentic on RHONY. OK, Dorinda.

Mid-way through the season, Tinsley announced that she was ditching the show and heading off to Chicago to be with her boo. I can’t say that I blame her when her mere presence incited such anger from Dorinda.

Dorinda Medley Real Housewives Of New York

It wasn’t a surprise that Dorinda Medley was leaving Real Housewives of New York after her behavior during Season 12. I love Dorinda, but there was no excuse for her angry and nasty behavior.

She bashed RHONY co-star Tinsley Mortimer for existing  being in a relationship with Scott Kluth, and for not being honest and authentic on the show. When Tinsley announced that she was moving to Chicago, viewers watched Dorinda tell Tinsley, “I’ve got a turkey baster– maybe try and have a baby.” Not cool, Dorinda.

Real Housewives of New York is coming off a pretty uneventful season. Aside from partying and drinking, we couldn’t point to much of a storyline outside of Dorinda Medley attacking Tinsley Mortimer. Oh and the revelation that Sonja Morgan doesn’t shave her p**sy. Mark my words, a drunken Sonja randomly yelling about her vag in the midst of a perfectly respectable party will go down in housewives history.

Let’s just say the offseason was way more interesting than the season itself thanks to major cast shakeups. Bethenny Frankel’s exit left a big hole in the cast and opened the door for newbie, Leah McSweeney. Love her or hate her, we have to admit that she brought it. Tiki torches are still shook. Also, Tinsley left the show mid-season to pursue her fairy tale with on-again-off-again boyfriend Scott Kluth. Dorinda was fired once the season was over.

Leah McSweeney Real Housewives Of New York

Despite a season of The Real Housewives of New York that felt unfocused and fueled by alcohol, this reunion is DELIVERING. All of the ladies have brought their A game for the first in person reunion in months. Dorinda Medley has been in the hot seat from the beginning because of her drinking and anger issues. The way she’s gone after Tinsley Mortimer has been jarring to say the least. What did this girl ever do to her?

Leah McSweeney is fed up with Ramona Singer. She can’t handle the double standards anymore. NEITHER CAN WE LEAH. We understand. The way Ramona has come for Leah at every turn about things she ignores in others is gross. What’s the difference? Please tell everyone Ramona. The world is all ears. It’s Dorinda’s final season, but shouldn’t it be Ramona’s as well?

Andy Cohen Dorinda Medley

No one can deny that Season 12 of Real Housewives of New York was a rough one for Dorinda Medley. I love Dorinda, but her explosive outbursts really aggravated me this season. What happened to the fun Dorinda and her sassy one-liners?

Her favorite target this season was RHONY co-star Tinsley Mortimer. Dorinda called out Tinsley for not being transparent about her life and her relationship with Chicago businessman Scott Kluth.
