Just as we say goodbye to Jules Wainstein, we welcome another new lady to The Real Housewives of New York City: Tinsley Mortimer. Although she's new to RHONY, she's been a staple on the New York social scene — and all that comes with it — for years. Here's what you need to know about the newest Real Housewife.
1. She's Part of the Fashion Industry, Both Up Front and Behind the Scenes
After graduating college, Tinsley got her start at Vogue and later moved to the public relations firm Harrison & Shriftman. She's even been featured on the cover of magazines like Harper's Bazaar and Marie Claire.
2. She's Friends with Sonja Morgan
Can't wait to see what this duo will do with the RHONY crew.
3. She Has a Dior Lipstick Named After Her
Tinsley Pink Dior was the first ever Dior color named for a Dior Beauty Ambassador. Talk about #goals.
4. She's No Stranger to Television
After being spotted as an NYC It Girl, Tinsley had a cameo in the Season 2 premiere of Gossip Girl. In 2010, she brought her true socialite status to CW on the reality show High Society.
5. Her Novel Covers Living a Sophisticated Lifestyle
Tinsley authored Southern Charm (and no, not the Southern Charm you might be thinking of) in 2012. The novel follows a Southern belle who takes on New York and the challenges that comes with such a big transition.
6. She Has Her Own Home Collection
Tinsley's bringing a fresh aesthetic and vision to personalizing your home. With bright colors and sophisticated design, her home collection stands out from the rest.
7. She's Been Married Twice — to the Same Man
The last name Mortimer comes from Tinsley's ex-husband, Topper. The two met in high school and eloped after they graduated. Once their parents found out, they made the two get an annulment. In 2002 they married in a traditional ceremony but later divorced in 2009.
