Who is Tinsley Mortimer again? Well, she is a narcissistic blond Virginia carpet salesman's daughter who aspires to be a reality TV star, which would be one thing if we didn't have to know who she was.

(Retch: here.) And this weekend the New York Times alerted us to the fascinating news that she has been married — for half her life! and they eloped in high school!! — to someone kind of AWESOME!
