Tinsley Mortimer: My Life Has Taken a Huge Turn

Tinsley Mortimer is introducing herself to viewers in her blog this week. She shares how her life has taken such a huge turn in the last year and how lucky she is to have a friend like Sonja Morgan to introduce her to this group of woman.

“As most of you can tell, my life has taken a huge turn! Imagine one year ago being arrested and horribly embarrassed. Then fast forward one year, and I am officially a Real Housewife of New York City! Wow! Talk about contrasts! Everything happens for a reason, and I cannot tell you how happy I am to be joining these six incredible ladies for Season 9 of RHONY. It’s just so great being back in NYC…where I belong!

Sonja Morgan is, without a doubt, the most generous friend a girl could ever have. When she invited me to come back up to New York and get out of Palm Beach, I was on the next plane. The infamous Townhouse is fabulous, and I really love my room stocked with plenty of stuffed animals and a balcony. Sonja has been great trying to get me readjusted back in New York, and this includes dating again. She created THE LIST of dos and don’ts for finding the proper person. Clearly I can use the help! Although I can’t say I always follow its rules, I know Sonja’s intentions were good creating it.

It was so nice to meet Sonja’s friends at the Mad Hatter party she threw for my return to the Big Apple. I knew they had probably read or heard about my arrest, so I was apprehensive about meeting them. Everyone, though, was truly very nice and seemed supportive of what I was going through. Glad I got to clear the air a little. Sonja did not invite Dorinda, because apparently there’s still some tension there from last year, but I’m sure I will meet her soon…”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Whenever I think about the RHoNY franchise, to be honest, having girls like Tinsley has always been what I envisioned for the show…actually, I think she kind of completes the collection of archetypes they have on the show now and this could be a really good formula of cast members. Let’s see how she fares. I know from my time in Japan that she made a killing in fashion related projects based there, so I’m curious to find out where she stands in the scheme of the things in the whole Tokyo-New York fashion connection, or if they’ll only show her move back to NYC and her trying to pick herself up from her social free fall. She’s aged in her time with Fanjul, though. That’s abundantly clear.
