With one season wonder Jules Wainstein out, Bravo quickly found a new RHONY in Tinsley Mortimer. So other than being a rich, beautiful blonde what caught Bravo’s interest?
People recently did a piece on her history, and in true housewives fashion she is anything but boring!
Tinsley is known around town as being a sort of troubled socialite with a less than perfect past. Reports state that she was arrested last April for trespassing on her ex-boyfriend’s property. According reports, Tinsley was crying and making a scene in an attempt to collect belongings from the home:
It was mentioned that at the time: “She sat on his doorstep for hours and banged on the door. She was frantic and very upset. Finally they called the police to get her out of there. She’s not a bad person but she was too upset to be thinking rationally.”
Tinsley is also used to being in front of the camera as she was the former star of The CW’s 2010 series High Society:
In a more serious note it was reported that she allegedly was also caught in an abusive relationship with her ex. The report claimed he had smothered her with a pillow and had done damage to her car during a drunken fight. Tinsley did not press charges and her ex has denied all allegations.
This part of her life should be close to finished as they had struck a deal to cease all communication. The case will not go to trial, and the charges will be officially dismissed on Dec. 30.
From what we know she seems a bit of a mess (perfect for reality TV) however time will tell if she’s a good fit. The New York women are known for being chic and tough, and from what we know at least she has the tough part down!
