Tinsley came on RHONYseeking her happily-ever-after, again. So two seasons ago, former castmate Carole Radziwill helped Tinsley with her #relationshipgoals by introducing her to Scott Kluth, a Chicago resident and Coupon Cabin CEO. Their first date felt like a case of opposites attract. The down-to-earth Midwesterner and teenage girl trapped in an aging socialite’s body locked lips in a very public display. And their on-again-off-again relationship has provided the only a major storyline for Tinsley ever since. Apparently, that relationship is “off.” Again.
Real Housewives of New York is back, and Season 11 looks amazing so far! Faster than you can yell “Jovani” at a cabaret show, the continuing turmoil between Dorinda Medley and Luann De Lesseps was brought to the forefront. After all, Luann did not take kindly to Dorinda’s drunken heckling enthusiastic support during her cabaret performance.
Of course, we all know it wasn’t about the Jovani. Instead, it was about Luannfailing to inviteDorinda’s man, John Mahdessian to the big show. Dorinda’s blood was boiling once Tinsley Mortimer spilled the beans that Luann had invited her boyfriend, Scott Kluth, the day of the performance. Now that is some questionable etiquette, Countess.
During the cabaret, Luann wore several Jovani gowns. Earlier in the season, Dorinda brought Luann to the Jovani showroom to check out dresses. Somehow that all melded together and Dorinda yelled out “Jovani” multiple times during Lu’s performance. But if you ask Dorinda, she insists, she was NOT heckling. Ummmm. What is her definition of heckling?
Last night was the season premiere of Real Housewives Of New York and all I have to say is thank goodness these ladies area back! They are quite literally the saviors of the Real Housewives franchise, and LuAnn de Lesseps and Co. definitely took us to church last night.
It’s a topsy-turvy time for all the women, who are dealing with some personal changes and challenges – like deciding to paint their entire apartment hot pink on the recommendation of an emotionally domineering unprofessional designer (aka their invisible teenaged daughter.) Gotta make amends for being a drunk loon on TV and I guess pink walls is the easiest way to do it! Obviously, I’m talking about Sonja T. Morgan and her unseen, unnamed daughter Quincy J. (I swear Quincy is actually just Sonja’s id acting up! #FreudRealTalk)
Tinsley Mortimerfrom the Real Housewives of New York also falls into that category. The most dramatic thing about her has been her on-again, off-again long distance relationship with Chicago resident and Coupon Cabin CEO ScottKluth. Which, when I think about it, has been pretty dramatic at times.
During Season 10, Tinsleyplanned the vacation from hell when she brought the ladies to Cartagena, Colombia. The group endured a nightmare boat ride, squabbling at nearly every meal, and some unpleasant stomach issues. In my opinion, Tinsley shouldn’t be allowed to ever plan a RHONY trip again.
It always feels like Christmas morning when a Real Housewives of New York trailer drops. The RHONY ladies consistently strike that perfect balance of craziness, friendship, laughter, and drama. This show deserves an Emmy!
