Tinsley Mortimer Was Arrested for Trespassing

Illustration for article titled Tinsley Mortimer Was Arrested for Trespassing

Socialite Tinsley Mortimer, 40, whose title as a Manhattan’s It-iest It Girl disintegrated along with the market in 2008, was arrested for trespassing on Saturday night in Palm Beach, Florida.

According to the Palm Beach Daily News, officers responded to a call about an “unwanted guest” from a resident; police said Mortimer was “on the property screaming.” She had previously been warned for trespassing on the same property in October. Mortimer was charged with trespassing, a misdemeanor, and booked in jail for two and a half hours. I am dying for further details.

In the past few years, Mortimer has written a novel and released a collection of home goods, but, blonde though she is, hasn’t quite managed to make herself stick as a lifestyle guru. She spent a few years holed away in her family’s home in Palm Beach after an embarrassing (and amazing) turn on the short-lived 2010 reality show High Society, which I would like everyone to relive right now:

It was good to see you again, old friend.

The real story is in the background of that picture.

You could write a whole novel based on the various levels of side eye and smirking condescension that are happening behind Tinsley’s back. She isn’t really the focus of the picture she’s the focus of.
