Luann de Lesseps Confirms Tinsley Mortimer Stopped Filming RHONY After Getting Engaged, Did Fiancé Scott Kluth Give Her An Ultimatum?

Tinsley Mortimer has quit The Real Housewives of New York City, according to her co-star Luann de Lesseps. During a performance of her Countess and Friends cabaret show at the Borgata Hotel and Casino in New Jersey on Saturday, de Lesseps opened up about Mortimer, claiming that she stopped filming the upcoming season after getting engaged to Scott Kluth, reports PEOPLE.

The revelation was revealed during a Q&A session with the audience. Luann was discussing Mortimer’s mother Dale Mercer, saying that she was “probably jumping for joy” over the engagement — though likely wasn’t too happy that Mortimer had left RHONY.

“I think she’s more upset that Tinsley’s not filming anymore now that she’s marrying Scott than Tinsley is,” said de Lesseps.

As for Mortimer, de Lesseps said, “I wish her all the best.”

“She seems very happy and I want her to be happy and get married. That’s what she wants to do. She’s very traditional,” the Countess said. “She wants to have a baby. It’s time.”

“I just hope there’s not [an alcohol-fueled fight] and the whole thing doesn’t implode,” de Lesseps teased.

Rumors surfaced last month that Moritmer had quit the Bravo hit reality series to move to Chicago after rekindling romance with Kulth.

The socialite was with De Lesseps Lesseps and their co-stars Dorinda Medley, Leah McSweeney, and Ramona Singer at BravoCon in early November but has not been seen filming with them since, skipping the cast trip to Mexico last week.

The publication claims that Mortimer’s exit from RHONY is expected to play out on season 12, which will premiere in 2020.

Meanwhile, a source reveals that Mortimer walked away from filming with five weeks left on her contract.

“Scott gave her an ultimatum: ‘me or the show,’ and she chose him,” the insider told PEOPLE. “He loves the limelight but hated the negative effect the show had on their relationship. And Tinsley, she’s desperate to make the relationship work and was on the outs with the group as it was.”

“It was much easier for her to walk away from the friendships she was never going to have to fight for the relationship she always wanted,” the source adds.
