Life might be a cabaret, but for one night only, Tinsley Mortimer's life was a bit of a circus. The Real Housewives of New York City socialite was recently recruited by the Big Apple Circus to be the show's ringmaster for the night and she simply dazzled in the role — and loved every minute of it.
"I had the BEST time being the guest ringmaster," Tinsley reflected, adding that when it came to her look, she had just the right accessory to include: "Yes! I do love a bow!!!"
Sitting in the audience to watch her take the stage were Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, and Ramona Singer. And the performance was all for a good cause, Tinsley noted: "A portion of [the] night's proceeds will be donated to the Al and Joyce Vidbel Animal Rescue foundation a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing humans and animals together in an effort to connect and heal each other. All the #rescuedogs and #rescuehorses who perform in this circus are loved and live happily at a farm owned by this foundation."

And thanks to photos and moments shared by the crew, we can confirm that things were just as wild behind-the-scenes.
Tinsley, proving she is quite good at the three-ring circus thing.
How could a circus not put a smile on your face?
Oh, yeah, did we forget to mention that even John Mahdessian made sure to check out Tinsley in action?
Now we're just wondering: Was anyone wearing Jovani?
