It was just a few short weeks ago that Scott Kluth got down on one knee in front of a bevy of Chicago carolers and proposed to his on and off longtime love, 'RHONY' star, Tinsley Mortimer. It was a moment viewers and Tinsley fans had been waiting for and you could not help but be over-the-moon for Tins, knowing this was all she had ever wanted since the two met in season nine. Sadly, with this happy moment comes Mortimer's departure from the series, five weeks before her season 12 contract expires. According to Luann de Lesseps, Tinsley, 44, is no longer filming the show in NYC with the ladies as she has moved to Chicago for love. But, Luann, who shared this news during her cabaret show's question and answer segment, was not all rainbows and unicorns. She was very flattering about the happiness of the wedding and such but then took a jab, which was supposed to be a joke:
"I just hope there's not an (alcohol-fueled fight) and the whole thing doesn't implode."
How adorable coming from the woman who was married for seven months to a world-class player (and had to legally give up her Countess title in the process) and was arrested for being drunk and telling a cop she was going to kill him, relapsing and going to rehab twice. Yes, Tinsley was arrested but it always seemed the ladies had it out for her since she arrived because she was cute, fun, happy, and just her. We hope she and Scott have their fairy tale life and ride off into the sunset. We also hope Kelly Dodd, who is engaged to New York-based reporter, Rick Leventhal, takes her place in NYC.
