‘RHONY’: Sonja Morgan Says She Won’t Miss Filming with Tinsley Mortimer
Tinsley Mortimer is one of the newer cast members of Real Housewives of New York (RHONY.) She often talked about dating and her desire to get married and have kids one day.
She is now engaged to Scott Kluth and she reportedly no longer wants to film for the show. Find out what Sonja Morgan has to say about the engagement and how she won’t miss filming with her in the future.
Tinsley Mortimer and Scott Kluth are engaged
Mortimer has been open about wanting to get engaged to her on-and-off boyfriend. She finally got what she wished for because he proposed.
“Scott’s apartment is close to where the carolers were,” a source told Page Six. “They were walking to dinner and they saw these carolers, and they broke into Christina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years,’ which is their song. It took Tinsley a few seconds to figure out what was going on, but then Scott got down on one knee. He’d organized the whole thing with the carolers in advance.”
The insider then talked about her reaction to him getting down on one knee. “She was totally surprised,” the source said. “Her friends sort of knew something was coming, but it really did take her by surprise. Scott asked her mom’s [Dale Mercer’s] permission, so their families knew, but it was a surprise to her friends.”
Luann de Lesseps said Mortimer is no longer filming
There were rumors that Mortimer might be quitting RHONY. That’s because she reportedly missed filming with the cast one night. Sources claimed she would continue to be part of the show in some way. However, Luann de Lesseps is the first person to talk about her no longer filming openly at her show.
She said Mortimer’s mother was probably “jumping for joy” over the engagement news. “I think she’s more upset that Tinsley’s not filming anymore now that she’s marrying Scott than Tinsley is,” revealed the reality star.
She went on to have good things to say about the couple. “I wish her all the best,” she said. “She seems very happy and I want her to be happy and get married. That’s what she wants to do. She’s very traditional.” The reality star then added, “She wants to have a baby. It’s time.”
Sonja Morgan said she won’t miss filming with her
Another cast member has talked about Mortimer’s exit from the show. That would be Morgan who talked about her move.
“Tinsley moved to Chicago, but she’s not a New Yorker. She’s from Florida, she lived in Florida — that’s her residency,” Morgan told Us Weekly. “She’s never really been a New Yorker, she’s been living in a hotel, and you know I’m happy that she’s happy.”
The reality star continued, “She’s much happier where she is, let me tell you that. I can see it. … I’m not going to miss filming with her — what I’m going to miss is seeing her often.”
There has yet to be an official statement on whether there is a change in the RHONY cast. But it seems like the cast members are prepared to no longer work with Mortimer.
