Real Housewives of New York City star Tinsley Mortimer has been dating Scott Kluth on and off for years, and during a recent episode, she told co-star Luann de Lesseps that she and Kluth had broken up once again. Mortimer explained that they were having a difficult time with the long distance between them, and Kluth wasn’t comfortable with Mortimer living her life in the public eye. But now, fans are wondering if the two have secretly gotten back together.
During a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen asked Mortimer about her relationship status, and she set the record straight by revealing that they were still broken up.

“I’m not with Scott, no,” Mortimer admitted. Her fellow guest star June Diane Raphael added that she hadn’t met Kluth, but she knows he doesn’t deserve Mortimer. The RHONY star tried to defend her ex, but Raphael wouldn’t allow it.
“Scott is a meatball sandwich. I’m sorry,” the Grace & Frankie star said. “You don’t have to say anything about him. But he is an armchair, he’s a sofa. He’s a rug. He’s an inanimate object that does not deserve any of our time.”
Mortimer denied Raphael’s claims, saying that their relationship was difficult because he was in Chicago and she was in New York. She added that starring in a TV show didn’t help, but they did try to work it out.
During a recent RHONY episode, Mortimer opened up about her battle with depression, telling her mom, Dale Mercer, that she is “literally f***ing miserable.” She also cried about missing Kluth, saying she was emotional and felt like she never does anything good enough.
Mortimer explained that she does things she believes will make her happy, but instead she is miserable. She said she has worked hard and wants to share her life with somebody.

According to People Magazine, Mortimer also told fans that she realized she was suffering from depression during a one-night-only gig as the ringleader of the Big Apple Circus. She admitted that when she was sitting in a big bow and big dress, she was exactly where she wanted to be when she was a little girl. But, she couldn’t be sadder or more depressed.
She continued to cry as her mom gave her some advice. Mercer told her daughter that she needs to be finished with Kluth and move on. She added that Tinsley Mortimer needs to stop focusing on the negative, and look at the positive.
