According to People, de Lesseps dropped the bombshell at her show Countess and Friends cabaret show in New Jersey.
The reality star claimed Mortimer had ceased all filming of “RHONY” after getting engaged. She told her audience that Mortimer’s mother, Dale Mercer, was “probably jumping for joy” after Kluth proposed. Her mother had been pushing for Mortimer to get married for years.
De Lesseps did claim Mercer was upset that Mortimer quit the show. She said, “I think she’s more upset that Tinsley’s not filming anymore now that she’s marrying Scott than Tinsley is.”
When pressed about her feeling on Mortimer she said, “I wish her all the best.” She added, “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. 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,” she added.
