Tinsley Mortimer has not quit RHONY. She has gotten back together with Scott Kluth and has been going back and forth between Chicago and NYC during filming. She recently told production that she would not be a a couple of upcoming shoots because she would be in Chicago.
Production has told her that they will not be including her in those episodes and she will not be paid for them. Sometimes, they will stick in some sort of scene with the missing person so they don’t lose their episode pay if they can’t attend a filming. That is not what they plan to do for Tinsley.
Tinsley Mortimer is Once Again HOPING For A Ring
Furthermore, the sources reporting about an engagement ring and proposal are coming from Tinsley. Production is not really buying the whole thing. But, hey, a girl can hope. She does seem happy in Chicago. She and Scott are staying at The Langham for some reason. Also she posted a very strategic photo that did not show her ring finger.
If she does somehow miraculously get engaged this time, it’s likely that she will live in Chicago. Then she probably would not film next season. But don’t hold your breath.
Currently, she remains a full time housewife for the upcoming season. Presuming she doesn’t keep skipping shoots.
Jill Zarin seems to be getting her buddy to put out that “she is coming back full time to replace Bethenny.” This season of RHONY is almost done with filming. Leah McSweeney is taking Bethenny’s spot and Elyse Slaine is taking Barbara’s spot. It’s possible that production is not really thrilled with that casting decision. But it is what it is for this season. There’s always next year, Jill Zarin.
Also, I am hearing that if Vicki Gunvalson doesn’t drop her ridiculous lawsuit against Kelly Dodd, she will not be invited to the reunion. I told y’all she was pissing off production with this legal nonsense. At least Tinsley Mortimer isn’t the only one pissing off production this week.
