Tinsley Mortimer from "The Real Housewives of New York City" is one of the housewives in the Bravo docu-drama series. She joined the series in Season 9. She preciously was one of the New York socialites featured in The CW reality docu-drama "High Society." She says, "I'm about to take you into a world where not everything is as perfect as it seems."

"The Real Housewives of New York City"

Tinsley joins the show this season with a touch of Southern charm and a whole lot of socialite glamour. She hails from Virginia and spent her childhood years growing up at Graymont, the Mercer family house in Richmond. She then attended boarding school at the Lawrenceville School in New Jersey, where she met her first husband, Topper Mortimer. Together, the high school sweethearts moved to New York City, where Tinsley attended Columbia University and graduated with a degree in art history.

As soon as Tinsley landed in New York, her blonde hair, Southern belle charm, and personal branding abilities propelled her into high society. After working at Vogue, she transitioned to a career in public relations. Always an entrepreneur at heart, Tinsley built a successful personal brand that was launched with a line of handbags, Samantha Thavasa by Tinsley Mortimer, and then a clothing collection, Riccimie by Tinsley Mortimer, which was sold exclusively in Japan. Tinsley then became the beauty ambassador for the iconic French fashion design house of Christian Dior and helped to create a lip gloss coined Tinsley Pink. Tinsley made her mark in society and built a global personal brand that led to her TV debut in the season premiere of "Gossip Girl," the launch of a tabletop collection, and the release of her debut novel, "Southern Charm."

But the fairy tale came to an end when her marriage to Topper fell apart. She decided to take a sabbatical from the fast-paced and overwhelming New York City lifestyle that she created for herself with a respite in Palm Beach. In 2016, after a much-needed break and time to reflect on her accomplishments, she was encouraged by friend Sonja Morgan to return New York. She is thrilled to reenter the New York social scene alongside her friends and begin the next chapter of her life. Tinsley is here to prove that there is more to her than meets the eye.

Mortimer is a staple of the Manhattan scene and is often featured in the social pages of publications such as New York Times, New York Post and New York Magazine. She is also a handbag designer for the Japanese label Samantha Thavasa, for which she also appears in advertising campaigns in both Japan and the United States. Mortimer also created her own clothing line, Riccime by Tinsley Mortimer, which is available in select stores in Japan.
