RHONY star Tinsley Mortimer is a Joe Biden supporter. She didn’t bother voting back in 2016, but she’s passionate about politics this time.
Tinsley Mortimer from The Real Housewives of New York has confirmed that she voted in this election and supports Joe Biden. However, she skipped voting in the 2016 election.
Tinsley Mortimer announced back in early June that she was officially handing in her RHONY apple and leaving the show, after finally getting a diamond from her fiancé, Scott Kluth. Over the past four years, the couple has called it quits more times than fans care to remember. The queen bee of New York showed fans how she was able to redeem herself after her Palm Springs arrest, and walk the runway one last time. She has been a socialite on the scene for decades. Now, she’s ready to become a housewife again. RHONY producers reportedly offered her more money to stay with the show, and she accepted.

Even though Tinsley has left the greater Tri-State Region, she still used her pull as a housewife to encourage her fan base to vote. While the blonde Real Housewife carelessly threw away her vote for the 2016 election by failing to show up at the polls, she is proud to stand behind the Democratic nominee Joe Biden in 2020. Tinsley’s mother Dale Tatum Mercer made it clear on her Instagram comment to @Bravobybetches that her daughter had educated herself about politics. See the mocking post that Dale commented on below:
The social media post seemingly mocked the engaged reality star for her take on American politics. However, Dale let the Bravo fanbase know that: “Tinsley was saying that politics were not her thing…not voting! She voted in the primary in 2016 in Florida but did not request an absentee ballot soon enough after she unexpectedly was invited to join ‘RHONY’ and three weeks later had moved and was filming in NYC.” Tinsley, 45, let it slip during the season 10 reunion that she did not vote because “politics weren’t her thing.” Most of the housewives were not surprised by the heiress’s lackadaisical approach to democracy, but fans are happy to hear she changed her tune.
The RHONY reality star actively participated in Joe Biden’s campaign for the White House. According to Dale, her daughter has given $2,000 to Joe Biden’s campaign. Her fiancé Scott has also donated. On top of the donations, the couple hosted a large reception for the Biden campaign in Chicago, making it clear that she would be an active participant in the voting process.
The only housewife to have ever really called out Tinsley for not voting was her co-star Carole Radziwell. Carole, now-fired Dorinda Medley, and Bethenny Frankel said that they had supported Hillary Clinton in 2016, while Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, and Luann de Lesseps refused to reveal which candidate they favored.
