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.
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.
We were ALL expecting the new Real Housewives series announcement at BravoCon. However, pretty much no one saw it coming when Andy Cohen said the new show is Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.
Many people were so sure that the Real Housewives of Chicago was in the works. Not only that, but Tinsley Mortimer has been going back and forth to Chicago thanks to her relationship with Scott Kluth. After she got engaged, it made sense that Tinsley would leave New York City for the Windy City. I mean, come on, she doesn’t even really live there. She is just staying in a hotel room while she films. Are all of these elements coming together for Real Housewives of Chicago to launch centered around Tinsley’s move? Not so fast, you guys. Andy is not on board with this notion.
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?
After three seasons of torturing us with her desire to get married and have a baby, Tinsley Mortimer is engaged to Scott Kluth. This is great news, right? Well, Scott lives in Chicago and Tinsley is a cast member on Real Housewives of New York. How is that gonna work? Is it going to work?
Tinsley skipped out on the annual RHONY cast vacation in Mexico to celebrate her engagement with Scott in Chicago. Wasn’t this technically a work trip? How could Tinsley just skip it? Was she filming scenes in Chicago? Is she just done with the show, as Luann de Lesseps said?
Rumors have been floating around the Bravosphere since fall that Tinsley Mortimer had quit The Real Housewives of New York City in the midst of filming Season 12. And, now, it looks like we finally have an answer to the It Girl’s status as a Housewife.
Tinsley‘s castmate Luann de Lesseps opened up during a recent performance of her (never-ending) Countess and Friends cabaret show about the socialite’s future on RHONY, her engagement to Scott Kluth and more.
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.
