Knowing what we know now about Dorinda Medley’s departure from RHONY, would that have changed things for Tinsley Mortimer?

Tinsley Mortimer was simply seeking her happy ending while filming for The Real Housewives of New York City, and she found it!  Carole Radziwill introduced Tinsley to Scott Kluth during a double date that was filmed for the show, and the rest is history.  This season, Tinsley dealt with a lot of attitude from Dorinda Medley, presumably because Dorinda was jealous for one reason or another.

But now that Dorinda is gone, what would have happened if Tinsley stuck it out?  She and Leah McSweeney have been hanging out a lot in their offseason and we love the two of them together.  Could Tinsley have eventually stood up to Dorinda and put her in her place?  Or perhaps that will happen at the upcoming reunion since we know Tinsley was in attendance.

Obviously Scott lives in Chicago which always impacted Tinsley’s decision to stay in New York, but filming was close to being finished when she left.  Though we don’t blame her one bit for leaving!

Leah and Tinsley went to Scottsdale to celebrate Leah’s birthday, according to Instagram.  Leah recently turned 38 and received a Chanel bag as a gift from Tins.  Pink, of course.  And now the pair is dancing to Cardi B on the lawn of the Four Seasons Resort.  Before that, they were near Montage Deer Valley in Park City, Utah.  Leah’s daughter Kiki even came along!

So even though Tinsley has left her RHONY past behind, we’re glad she stuck with Leah.  Though some people have not yet warmed up to the MOB designer, she is might be around for a while.  Rumors have it that production wants to bring the median age down a bit.

Tinsley and Scott got engaged back in 2019 but the pair seems too busy having fun to worry about a wedding, especially with everything going on these days.  We don’t blame them, but we hope to hear more about it at the reunion!

The Real Housewives of New York City is on Thursdays at 9 PM ET!
