Tinsley Mortimer Shares Her First Impressions of the RHONY Ladies

First impressions are everything. And when Tinsley Mortimer met some of The Real Housewives of New York City for the first time, they left lasting ones on her for sure. When the Big Apple rookie recently stopped by The Daily Dish HQ, we had her share her initial opinions of several members of the crew — minus Sonja Morgan, of course, since they're old pals and roomies.

"She's super chic and skinny and I love all of her clothes that she wears," Tinsley said. "She values her friendships and she's not just gonna immediately be a friend of yours, unless you get to know her better and build a relationship with her. And so she kind of sometimes can be actually nice and sometimes a little cold. It sort of goes hot and cold a little bit."

2. Carole Radziwill

"I love Carole. Again chic, skinny, awesome and just cool [and] laid back," Tinsley explained. "Just like a very poised, lovely girl who also really, I feel like, immediately tried to get to know me a little bit."

3. Dorinda Medley

"At first she seemed motherly and sweet. We had a great conversation when I first got to meet her. I love her. She is awesome. She just shoots from the hip. She says it like it is," Tinsley recalled. "I had like an F you dinner, basically, which Dorinda apparently had that she told me about, I think. She's just like, 'Now you're a Housewife. Once you give your F you dinner, you're a Housewife.'"
