Last we heard this past summer, Tinsley and Scott were broken up. However, it appears that The Real Housewives of New York City couple have indeed rekindled their romance, a source recently told Us Weekly. “They did reconnect and are fully back together," the insider said. "It’s clear that they are and she is smitten with him again.“
We've followed the ups and downs of Tinsley and Scott's relationship ever since Carole Radziwill introduced the two back in Season 9 of RHONY. Last season was a particularly trying time for the couple as Tinsley expressed how unhappy she was while navigating the long-distance relationship (Scott lives in Chicago) as well as contemplating whether they had a future together.
Tinsley and Scott ultimately broke up during Season 11 of RHONY, although some of her fellow New York Housewives weren't so sure they were completely over, as you can see in the above clip from The Real Housewives of New York City Season 11 After Show. "My breakup with Scott, I was very open and honest about that, and I was honest about that," Tinsley said while reflecting on Season 11 of RHONY on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in July. "I shared my grief and my emotion about that, which is such bulls--t for anyone to say it wasn't, that we weren't broken up."
Tinsley (and her mother, Dale Mercer!) confirmed that she had started dating again during the RHONY Season 11 After Show. She was even linked to Billy Bush at one point over the summer, although she noted they are "just friends."
The RHONY socialite spoke about her enduring love for Scott despite all of the challenges they have encountered in their relationship during an interview with The Daily Dish in 2018. "We've had our ups and downs, and we've broken up a couple times. It's been tough. You know, distance is hard. We love each other. It's so cliché and cheesy, but it's true," she gushed. "I just really, honestly want to just make it work with him and then if babies come, marriage comes, and all that stuff, that would be great, an extra bonus on top of everything."
