Tinsley Mortimer is loving her time on The Real Housewives of New York!
Tinsley Mortimer was more than familiar with the New York City social scene before joining RHONY. She used to be New York City’s premiere ‘it girl.’ As a socialite she ran in the same circles as Sonja Morgan, which is how they developed a friendship. Originally it was Sonja who introduced Tinsley to the group. The two Bravo beauties are still friends, however; Tinsley has developed some strong friendships with other cast members. She has become besties with Carole Radziwill and Dorinda Medley. However; she is adamant that whatever is happening between the other women has nothing to do with her.
Tinsley told The Daily Dish, “I adore Carole. Obviously she’s been such a great friend to me and also her taking me under her wing in a sense and wanting to introduce me to Scott, I’m super appreciative of that.” Tinsley stated, “We’ve developed a real, true, true honest friendship and I actually adore her.” She’s also become tight with Dorinda. Tinsley shared, “Dorinda and I, too, have become really close. And she’s someone that the moment I met her, I thought she was fantastic, and I knew we would eventually click.”
However; Tinsley doesn’t feel that the shift between Carole and Bethenny Frankel has anything to do with her. Tinsley added, “But my friendship with Carole is completely separate then anything that’s going on with her other friendships.” She insisted that the rift this season between Carole and Bethenny has nothing to do with her. “For me, I’ve only ever known Carole and Bethenny to be super close and they were so tight. And so it’s been hard to see their relationship fall apart a bit. But my relationship is totally separate from that. There’s nothing that we have to do with the other,” Tinsley explained.
However; Tinsley has an optimistic outlook for the future of Carole and Bethenny. Tinsley said, “I really hope that they work things out and I hope they become close friends again. There’s room for lots of friends and there’s room for everybody and my being friends with Carole should never jeopardize any other friendship. I hope for the best for them.”
I totally can see why Tinsley connected with Carole and Dorinda. I think they all come from a good place and they each avoid drama as best as they can. I don’t think that Tinsley’s friendships with the ladies of the RHONY has anything to do with the shift this season when it comes to Carole and Bethenny’s friendship. I’m hopeful that those two will go back to being super close. We’ll have to stay tuned!
