‘The Real Housewives of New York’ spoilers indicate that star Tinsley Mortimer might have had some cringeworthy moments on the show with her castmates, but she certainly doesn’t have any regrets about being on the show. As a matter of fact, Tinsley says that she’s glad to be done with RHONY and that she’s closed that chapter for good.
While on the Reality Life with Kate Casey podcast, Tinsley says that while it wasn’t an easy decision to make, leaving was definitely the right choice. She left the franchise back in November of 2019 to be with her fiancé Scott Kluth, who lives full-time in Chicago.
‘The Real Housewives of New York’ Spoilers: Tinsley Mortimer Has No Regrets About The Humiliation That Comes With Being A Housewife
She said, “I was really taking a leap of faith and really trying to trust my gut and follow my heart. When I see myself driving off, I am proud of myself for doing it.”
“Doing a reality show with all these strong women, it is really the best therapy you can ever have,” she said of her time on RHONY. “You are just in this intense world. It is your life, but amplified and so intense … There are these strange hierarchies on the show and these fourth wall issues that come on to camera. You have to be on your game and to be strong. When I joined the show I was at the lowest point of my life, I was so humiliated. I had been in a relationship that was awful. All of a sudden the script was flipped on me basically, the way the press was portraying it … It might have seemed like the wrong time to join a reality show, and be part of it but for me it seemed like the absolutely right time because there was no place to go, and to be in New York.”
Tinsley also said that she was lucky enough to walk away from the show with at least one good friend: Leah McSweeney.
“We had met and I had sort of tested her, filming together,” she explained. “We hung out a couple times and when she got the show I was so thrilled to have a younger girl on the show. I definitely had moments with different people. Sonja [Morgan] was more like an older sister to me, so in a way I didn’t feel like I could be wild and crazy. To have Leah there was really great.”
She added, “I am still friends with Leah and talk to her all the time. I adore her. Hopefully, when the world gets to a place that is somewhat normal I will go back to New York, and I will see people. Can I say that I will reach out to some of the girls on the show if I am in New York? Probably not. Mainly Leah, and maybe Sonja. Of course, I will still watch the show.”
