RHONY Newbie Tinsley Mortimer ‘Desperately’ Wants To Be New York’s Top Socialite Again?

According to a new report, Tinsley Mortimer desperately wants to be back on top as the No. 1 socialite in New York City. An inside source claims becoming part of the upcoming ninth season of  The Real Housewives of New York City was part of her strategy but apparently the Bravo cameras are hindering her way into the fancy galas she used to attend back in her heyday.

“Bravo is making her film everywhere she can get in. She thinks she’s going to be back on top of society again, but no one really wants her at their events — or the ‘Real Housewives.’ Her p.r. team is e-mailing everyone and their mother to get her into the galas she used to go to, but they won’t have her back because of the cameras,” a source told Page Six.

A rep for Mortimer said, “There’s no truth to these ­rumors.”

Mortimer moved back to New York last year after a tumultuous stint in Florida.

A pal of the reality star revealed, “Tinsley has been welcomed back to the city with open arms and recently attended the New York Botanical Garden Winter Wonderland Ball and the Whitney Art Party. There are no shortage of invites for Tinsley Mortimer. Socialite ranking is so 2006.”

The Columbia graduate — who split from her businessman husband, Robert Livingston Mortimer, in 2009 after seven years of marriage — opened up to Harper’s Bazaar this past September about her one-season stint on the short-lived 2010 CW reality series High Society.

"People already loved to hate me, and then my show wasn't successful, so instead of saying, 'Oh, well, she tried,' it was tarnish, tarnish, tarnish," Mortimer, who left Manhattan for tony Palm Beach, Florida, in 2013, told the publication. "I didn't even want to go out anymore — I didn't want to do anymore. I was tired."

However, Mortimer made headlines back in April when she was arrested in Palm Beach for trespassing on the property of her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Alexander "Nico" Fanjul. She was released at around 8:30 p.m. that night after she was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on the misdemeanor charge.

Mortimer has since relocated to the Big Apple. She explained to Harper’s Bazaar that the experience was embarrassing but ultimately eye-opening.

"I went down to Palm Beach, and I was just walking away from everything. I just wanted to get away. I wanted to start over. I met this guy, and I thought I could. It basically took public humiliation for me to understand what I was going through because I was so caught in this cycle that I really did not know what was going on,” the former It Girl said. "I'm human, and we make mistakes. My biggest mistake was that I was running away from something here in New York and I ran into the wrong hands."
