Tinsley Mortimer’s mom Dale weighs in on Sonja Morgan’s drinking

Tinsley Mortimer's mom Dale weighs in on Sonja Morgan's drinking

Tinsley Mortimer’s mom stuck up for their mutual pal Sonja Morgan after Morgan’s drinking became a major plot line on this week’s episode of “Real Housewives of New York.”

Mortimer’s mother, Dale Mercer, said that Morgan was telling the truth when she said on the show that she never drinks alone at home.

“Tinsley lived with Sonja her first season on RHONY, and Sonja is telling the truth about not drinking at home,” Mercer commented on Morgan’s Instagram post about the episode. “Not once did Tins see her drink alcohol there. Sonja drinks when she’s with the ladies to let loose and have fun!”

On the show — which Mortimer quit in 2020 — this week, cast members Leah McSweeney, Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps staged an intervention with Morgan after she smashed a glass fire extinguisher case and got into a physical altercation following a boozy night.

“I think that it would be absolutely irresponsible and f–ked up of us to not say we think the drinking is going to hurt you,” McSweeney began the talk with Morgan. “… We want to help.”

But Morgan, 57, was insistent that she only drank while out partying with the ladies.

“I never drink alone. I don’t drink at home. I don’t drink on dates. I don’t go out and socialize like that,” she told them.

She also said in a confessional, “These two [de Lesseps and Singer] are just becoming a broken record, and I can see they’ve hooked Leah into it. We’re on a vacation. Chill out. I think we’ll be OK. i’m not going to explain myself anymore.”

Morgan doubled down on her sentiments via Instagram Wednesday with a clip of the episode captioned, “Don’t you think @ramonasinger knows by know I’m on to her tricks 😂? Never gets old 😆 Comment and let me know your thoughts on last night’s #RHONY episode 🤷‍♀️” — which is where Mercer decided to weigh in.
