Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer insisted earlier this month that she had not left the series, but then decided not to film the season finale and its co-stars are not satisfied.
Rumors have been circulating for weeks that Mortimer was leaving RHONY after his boyfriend, Coupon Cabin CEO Scott Kluth, offered him outside the Chicago Water Tower. Insiders say Mortimer plans to move to Chicago and is done with RHONY. But, she told People magazine that the rumors that she had resigned were not true.
“As with many relationships, life doesn’t end completely for love, which is why I will continue to honor my professional commitments in New York while Scott will focus on the busy season of CouponCabin in Chicago”, explained Mortimer.
She added that she wanted to set the record straight on reports that said she had to choose between Kluth and RHONY, saying they were “100% false”. She confirmed that she would be calling Chicago soon, but did not reveal her future plans for RHONY.
Now that she skipped the finale – which was shot this week at Sonja Morgan’s Drag Queen bingo event for GLAAD at Chelsea Studio Space – it seems like Mortimer’s time on RHONY is coming to an end.
Morgan, Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, Luann de Lesseps and debutante Leah McSweeney were all there for the final, and they expected Mortimer to make an appearance, even if she had another bash engagement No Dogs Left Behind .
This fundraising ended at 8 a.m. and Morgan’s event did not end until 10 a.m. But despite everything, Mortimer was a no-show. “None of the housewives were satisfied with Tinsley,” said the insider.
She also missed the casting trip to Mexico, which continued the rumor that Mortimer was done with RHONY. According to Us Weekly, an insider claims that Mortimer is done after the movies for season 12 are made.
“She moves for love,” said the insider last month after Mortimer got engaged. “It’s a very happy time in her life right now and everyone is rooted for her and Scott. They have solved all their problems and no longer want to live with each other. She is very, very happy! “
Season 12 of Real Housewives of New York will air on Bravo in the spring of 2020.
