Once upon a time Tinsley Mortimer was a Manhattan media darling, but after a few failed romances, she fell from grace and went from socialite to hot mess express.
However, the socialite turned reality star is looking for redemption and a comeback with her new job on the Real Housewives of New York.
An insider tells PageSix that Tinsley, “is using the show to plot a comeback and ‘get the truth out there.’ Tinsley knows she’s made some wrong choices, and fallen for the wrong men, but once again she’s back, she’s single, and looking for love. But while once her life seemed to be coated in gold, now things are a struggle.”
Tinsley’s fall from grace happened last April when she was arrested for trespassing at the home of her ex-boyfriend.
As for her role on RHONY, sources say Tinsley is having her co-stars set her up with wealthy suitors in the city and that producers have even moved her in with Sonja Morgan.
“They just started filming and don’t know what the storylines will be yet,” a source explained while insisting Tinsley will be discussing her fall from grace. “She has to talk about how she hit a low. This is her comeback story.”
A rep for Tinsley said, “There is no truth to these rumors,” while Bravo had no comment.
I’m excited to see what Tinsley brings to RHONY. I think she will be the perfect fit for the show and will mix well with the ladies.
