Last year, Tinsley Mortimer made the move from New York to Chicago to be with fiancé Scott Kluth, as fans saw captured earlier this season on The Real Housewives of New York City. But though she’s now a full-time resident of the Windy City, Tinsley recently made the return to Manhattan to film the show’s anticipated Season 12 reunion.
On August 7, Tinsley shared her response to the upcoming reunion in an Instagram post, posting a brief video of herself making a grand entrance to the set in a black sequin ballgown with a large tiered skirt. As she hinted at in the caption, Tinsley is taking the opportunity not only to rock a dramatic dress, but also to say goodbye to this particular chapter of her life.
“It’s been real,” she wrote in the caption, also adding a peace sign emoji.
Tinsley’s return is only one of the reasons why the RHONY Season 12 reunion is sure to be memorable. The reunion is also the first to be shot in person since the coronavirus pandemic began in early 2020. Host Andy Cohen shared a look at some of the safety protocols that were put into place earlier this month.
“This reunion is unlike anything we've ever done before,” he said in an Instagram video. “I wish you could see the setup. You'll see it soon enough. All protocols being observed. Masks at the ready.”
