REAL Housewives of New York City alum Tinsley Mortimer is set to make a dramatic comeback at season 12’s reunion gathering to reignite one of the “hottest topics” of the show.
Despite quitting mid-series, for a new life with her fiance Scott Kluth in Chicago, Hollywood Life sources claim the 44-year-old hasn’t finished with the programme just yet.
They claim the High Society star will make her return whether the wrap show is filmed in-person or in a socially-distanced way, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
They told the publication: “Tinsley is planning on joining the reunion, too, despite walking away from the show earlier this season.
“So you can expect one of the hottest topics at the reunion to be Dorinda Medley‘s and Tinsley’s feud.”
The pair’s unexpected spat kicked off earlier in the year, when Dorinda raised eyebrows over Tinsley’s relationship with Scott.
Socialite Tinsley then claimed her co-star had blocked her on Instagram, something her former pal insisted was not true and branding her a “liar.”
Previously, Tinsley told the Daily Dish podcast of the roots of their spat and said: “Really my big thing this season with her is I really want to have a one on one sit-down chat.
”All I’m wanting to do is have some time, the two of us, to talk. That’s all I’m asking for.
“And it’s just constantly feeling that, you know, she’s not really wanting to do it.”
Meanwhile Bravo show bosses told Hollywood Life all COVID-19 social distancing measures would be adhered to if the reunion was filmed in-person.
They added: “There would be many protocols in place. Health/temperature checks, social distancing, mask wearing when not on camera, extra sanitizing, etc. are among the standards.”
Previously announcing her departure on the Bravo series, Tinsley told her new best friend Leah McSweeney, 37, that she was serious about knowing “this is it” with her then-boyfriend.
“Is there physically like a ring or something right now? No.

“Is that definitely happening, are we getting married? I just know it,” she assured.
“I will be moving to Chicago, I’m not sure exactly when but I know that we are going to be together and I know we are going to make this work,” the hopeless romantic added.
Tinsley first joined the cast of RHONY during season nine in 2017.
