Meet Robert Bovard, RHONY Tinsley Mortimer Husband
Page Six reported that Tinsley Mortimer, a former cast member of “Real Housewives of New York City,” married her fiancé, Robert Bovard, on 12th Nov, 2023, in Palm Beach, Florida.
The wedding’s specifics were kept under wraps; the site exclusively revealed that they were being held after the pair secretly became engaged. But just before the ceremony began, Tinsley was seen holding what looked to be her dress in a very big, puffy garment bag. Additionally, Robert was photographed by paparazzi sporting a casual white polo shirt and carrying a few of his own bags, including a navy tote bearing the words “C’est la vie” in white lettering.
The former NYC socialite, who has spent the last several years in the South, is said to have turned down the opportunity to rejoin the “Housewives” series because she would rather live a low-key life. The couple’s dating history and method of introduction are unknown.
Fans are aware that it took place at some point after her ex-husband Scott allegedly called off their engagement in 2021. According to many publications, the Bravolebrity was taken aback when Scott broke up with her at the time.
“[Tinsley] moved her entire life and left her career for Scott because she truly thought this time it would work,” PEOPLE reported at the time. “She gave everything to this relationship. She fought to make it work, but he fell back into his old ways of constantly breaking up and getting back together with her. It was an endless cycle.”
Page Six first broke the news that Tinsley got engaged to Robert and plans to marry on Nov. 11 in Palm Beach, Fla.
Jewelry experts previously told Page Six Style that Tinsley Mortimer’s huge emerald engagement ring was estimated to weigh between 10 and 15 carats. Based on images of the former celebrity wearing the stone, The Diamond Pro CEO Mike Fried claimed that the stone had a lovely “deep green hue” and a “halo of diamonds.”
“Finding a high-quality emerald of that size is no small feat,” he continued, estimating the price at over $500,000. The stone seemed to be a “Colombian emerald with limited treatment,” according to another expert Edward Klopfer of Rare Carat, who estimated its value at “north of $300,000.”
From 2002 to 2010, Tinsley was previously married to a prominent member of society Topper Mortimer. Additionally, she briefly engaged Scott Kluth, but the two called it quits in 2021.
Robert was born on 11 August 1976. She turned 47 years old in 2023.
Tinsley Randolph Mercer Mortimer hails from Virginia and spent her childhood years growing up at Graymont, the Mercer family house in Richmond, Virginia. She then attended boarding school at the Lawrenceville School in New Jersey, where she met her first husband, Topper Mortimer. Together, they moved to New York City, where Tinsley attended Columbia University and graduated with a degree in art history. As soon as Tinsley landed in New York, her blonde hair, Southern belle charm, and personal branding abilities propelled her into high society. She quickly became synonymous with the New York social scene and was the most photographed woman in New York City in the early 2000s.
After working at Vogue, she transitioned to a career in public relations. Always an entrepreneur at heart, Tinsley built a successful personal brand that was launched with a line of handbags, Samantha Thavasa by Tinsley Mortimer; a clothing collection, Riccimie by Tinsley Mortimer, which was sold exclusively in Japan; and a tabletop collection. Tinsley then became the beauty ambassador for the iconic French fashion design house of Christian Dior and helped to create a lip gloss coined Tinsley Pink.
