Wednesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City was a tear-filled affair as two of the cast members broke down on camera.
Tinsley Mortimer’s breakup with Scott Kluth recently played out on camera, but that didn’t mean she got to spend some time in hiding as she got over the split.
Instead, she pressed on with her hosting duties at the Big Apple Circus. Mortimer got a little drunk during the event, an found herself embroiled in a war of words with her mother Dale by the time the show was over.
Tinsley felt like she was always looking for her mother’s approval, but her mother tried to reiterate to her daughter that she already had it.
"I realized I couldn’t be more depressed. I couldn’t be sadder," Tinsley revealed in a confessional.
Dale told her daughter that she’s feeling a flurry of emotions because of her breakup.
"It’s not about me, Tinsley, it’s about your boyfriend, so stop it," her mom complained.
I’m doing these things I feel like I would be really happy about and I’m not happy," Tinsley confirmed. "I’m miserable. I’m literally f–king miserable. I’m miserable."
Dale worried that Tins was wallowing too much in the past and said that she should be looking to the future.
"I think you should be finished with the whole Scott thing," Dale pleaded, "You need to move on."
"I worked hard to be in a place where I feel like I just wanted somebody to share it with me," Tinsley said, not taking her mother’s advice. "And I’m sharing with you and I love you but I don’t want to just share it with you."
Tinsley said she wanted to tell Scott about the event and have him there, "but he couldn’t do it."
If you watch The Real Housewives of New York City online, you know that Tinsley recently revealed she was unhappy in the relationship.
Elsewhere, Bethenny Frankel was also struggling with her emotions as her custody battle with ex-husband Jason Hoppy continued.
Hoppy allegedly used Dennis Shields’ drug overdose in the case, and tried to haul Bethenny to court to complete a drugs test.
"Sadly, I’m used to going to court and I really deal with this alone," she told the cameras. "It’s bad, it’s really bad."
Frankel was concerned that this battle could cost her jobs.
"There’s a clause that says I get fired if I violate anything," she explained. "If I do anything inappropriate, if I abuse alcohol or drugs."
The good news is that Hoppy’s request was denied, and he was ordered to hoppy the eff out of New York. (We wish!)
Frankel confirmed in the aftermath that she definitely "needs a break."
"It’s too much, all of it’s been too much," she complained, "I need to let some air out of the tires, we need to do this. It’s too much."
Frankel went on to say that everything is just starting to catch up with her. She’s been doing too much,
"All of the seeds I planted years ago didn’t factor in for divorce and custody battle, a relief effort that I took on, a death," she said in a confessional.
"I’ve been approached by several people who are interested in buying the Skinny Girl brand. I’m not looking to exit, I’m looking for ways to take the pressure off."
