Leah McSweeney Says That Tinsley Mortimer ’Dodged a Bullet’ With Scott Kluth Following Split!

Leah McSweeney shared how she really felt about Tinsley Mortimer‘s split from Scott Kluth and whether she would like for her to return to The Real Housewives of New York City.

“I’m happy that Tinsley is free and she dodged a bullet,” McSweeney said during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on Tuesday, May 4, according to Us Weekly.

Ramona Singer chimed in about her opinion of Kluth and the way he handled the split.

“Who announces [to the press] that he stopped seeing her? It was up to her to say that, not him. That was the rudest thing ever,” Singer said on WWHL.

McSweeney did reveal that she hopes Mortimer moves back to New York and possibly returns to the Bravo hit reality series.

“He had no regard for her feelings or her life. She left New York and gave up so much to be with him and I would love for her to come back and I hope she does,” McSweeney added.

McSweeney and Mortimer became close friends after filming season 12 together. Tinsley quit the series mid-season as she moved to Chicago to be with then-fiancé Kluth.

The news comes after Kluth confirmed the split after he released a statement to Us Weekly on Thursday, March 18. “After fourteen months of engagement, Tinsley and I have ended our relationship, and we have been living independently for the last few months,” the Coupon Cabin CEO said. “This was an incredibly difficult decision, but it is one that I believe is best for both of us. I will always care about Tinsley, and I sincerely wish her happiness and success in all that she does in the future.”

He added, “While I understand this news will be of interest to many, I ask for privacy and understanding during this time as I continue to work on recovering emotionally from the end of our relationship.”

A source told Us Weekly that the split has been “devastating” for Mortimer, adding, “He completely blindsided her.”

Mortimer and Kluth met in February 2017 on a blind date set up by her then RHONY co-star Carole Radziwill. They broke up that October and got back together soon after, only to split again in June 2018. 

The former couple continued to have an on-off relationship in the months that followed before getting engaged in November 2019. Mortimer subsequently quit the Bravo reality series to be with her then-fiancé.
