Bethenny Frankel Knows Why Tinsley Mortimer Thinks She is Cold

Now that Season 9 of RHONY is well underway everyone seems to be fitting in together except for new Housewife Tinsley Mortimer and Bethenny Frankel.

Tinsley has mentioned how she’s received a chilly reception from Bethenny on a couple of occasions this season.

Bethenny appeared on Watch What Happens Live last Wednesday and explained why she thinks Tinsley feels that way. “Here’s what it is. This is my real life, this is a reality show. If I meet somebody at a party, I go, ‘Hi, nice to meet you,’ I don’t go down on them,” Bethenny joked.

Bethenny added that Tinsley may have expected “a little too much” from her. “Everyone has this preconceived notion when they come on a show that’s been on for 10 years, they’re gonna come and like, ‘Ooh, I’m gonna make Bethenny love me or hate me or I’m gonna fight with her,'” Bethenny said. “It’s like, ‘Hey, hi, how are you?’ That’s it. Basic. Nothing. We don’t know each other.”

yes, it is reality show but it is also a JOB, and Bethany has to WORK with this chick. So why not just play nice and not ignore?


When has B ever ignored Tinsley tho? Every time she sees her she says hello and is perfectly polite. So anything less than 4 air kisses and 10 continuous mins of telling Tinsley how gooorgeous she looks is the equivalent of being ignored.
Its really crazy SOME ppl rather have a fake, bs greeting to feel better than just accept a normal, “Hello, how are you”….

A newcomer is still a stranger. Tinsley needs to give it time for Bethnny & the others to get to know her. This is pre-judging.

I agree, Starr. A lot is expected of Bethenny, even from Tinsley. Just because Tins wants to open up about every single thing in her personal life, Bethenny doesn’t. B was polite and nice to her, if she seems cold, well, too bad. Gotta give people a chance beyond the first meeting. Whether she works with her or not, what difference does that make? Bethenny thought her return season would be the hardest time. Now she has a psychopath stalker as an ex-husband & the father of her little girl, and is heading a major company, she has just a… Read more »

My goodness 3 D’s, you are an impressive writer–really clear thinking. Enjoy your posts so much.

I’ve been really shocked by some of Sonja’s behavior this year. It seems to me that she is slipping further into her own delusions and it’s a bit scary. Knowing how much Bravo loves to exploit mental illness, it may be exaggerated in editing, but no one can force you to say the words you say. I hope I’m wrong, but Sonja truly is turning into Edie Biel, at least to me.

And how can you get to know someone who blows you off every time you are in the same room?
Move on, Tinsley. You will be happier.

Don’t push it – that’s how life is – in real and reality

Bitchenny is cold that when she pees she expels ice cubes

She hasn’t been with Tinsley in an intimate setting yet. I didn’t think she was rude at all. She doesn’t even know her. Bethenny has never pretended to be someone she isn’t and isn’t going to make an exception for the cameras.
I am a big fan of hers , but can definitely admit some of her shortcomings, Nobody is perfect.
I also like Tinsley, we’ll see where that goes.
The way Sonja treats Tinsley is baffling to me, that I don’t understand yet.
Anyways, can’t wait for the next episode!

Jeeze. When are the NYHW going to write their blogs? Is that still part of their contractual obligations, I wonder? I haven’t seen enough weekly blogs to get anyone talking here. If there is a story, it’s old. That is not the doing of the administrator here, I don’t think. The most important stories are the ones from the show or shows that are airing at the time. The other shows from Bravo have some interesting informative articles and things happening to the cast, but that is not the bread and butter of these blogs, in my opinion. I don’t… Read more »
I have completely different feelings toward Bethenny, as I do toward TINSLEY. Presently, it’s TINSLEY who driving me nuts, the most!!! Why on Earth does TINSLEY, moving back to NY from Florida, act like she moved from Jupiter to Mars? I keep hearing words like “Reintroduction” and phrasing such as “left my life”…” getting back my life”…”coming back into”…”picked up and left”… SHE MOVED!! ITS AS SIMPLE AS THAT!! It’s ridiculous. It’s as if she was SENTENCED to Palm Beach and they finally let her out on leave. I don’t know if it is the way things are edited or… Read more »
