The ‘RHONY’ Cast Was Reportedly ‘Not Happy’ with Tinsley Mortimer Skipping the Season 12 Finale
The cast of Real Housewives of New York (RHONY) is probably going to change next season. That’s because Tinsley Mortimer has reportedly stopped filming with the rest of the cast. There is a new report that she skipped filming the finale. Find out more details about the situation and more.
Tinsley Mortimer is now engaged to Scott Kluth
Mortimer was open about wanting to get engaged to her boyfriend, Scott Kluth for some time. It then finally happened with him proposing with Christmas carolers.
“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.”
She wasn’t expecting it. “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 permission, so their families knew, but it was a surprise to her friends.”
She reportedly stopped filming with the cast
Mortimer has reportedly stopped filming with the rest of the cast members. Luann de Lesseps revealed this at her show, Countess and Friends.
Lesseps said she believed Mortimer’s mother, Dale Mercer was probably “jumping for joy” because of the engagement. “I think she’s more upset that Tinsley’s not filming anymore now that she’s marrying Scott than Tinsley is,” she said.
She didn’t seem very heartbroken over this. “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.”
Sonja Morgan also talked about no longer filming with Mortimer. “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,” she told Us Weekly.
The cast is reportedly ‘not happy’ with her skipping the finale
Each season of the Real Housewives tends to end with some kind of party involving the entire cast. However, this season will reportedly get wrapped up differently.
Us Weekly reports the rest of the RHONY cast went to Sonja Morgan’s Drag Queen Bingo fundraiser for GLAAD at Chelsea Studio Space in NYC for the occasion. Mortimer reportedly hosted a different event, but would have still been able to attend Drag Queen Bingo afterward due to it being at a different time. However, Mortimer reportedly didn’t attend.
“None of the housewives were happy with Tinsley,” a source reportedly said. A source also claimed that Mortimer plans to move to Chicago after the season ends.
It’s unknown whether Mortimer will be there to film the reunion with the cast. But it doesn’t look like there is much hope for her stick around for another season.
