Leah McSweeney Supports Friend Tinsley Mortimer with Sex and the City Meme After Breakup
Leah McSweeney is showing support for her good friend, Tinsley Mortimer.
Following the PEOPLE exclusive news that Mortimer, 45, had split from fiancé Scott Kluth more than a year after getting engaged, her former Real Housewives of New York City costar shared a meme from the Sex and the City movie depicting the scene where Charlotte (Kristin Davis) yells, "I curse the day you were born!" at Mr. Big (Chris Noth).
"Mood," McSweeney captioned the post. "Had To delete my trash # Because people are trying to have this post removed for hate speech. LOL. Proving my # is very true."
Commenting on the Married to the Mob designer's post, Mortimer wrote, "Love you beyond! You're a dear true friend!" The former RHONY star also added praise-hands and sparkling-heart emojis to her comment.
"Love you," replied McSweeney, 38, alongside four red heart emojis.

Kluth, 40, told PEOPLE on Thursday that he and Mortimer ended their engagement several months ago, more than a year after the CouponCabin CEO proposed.
"After 14 months of engagement, Tinsley and I have ended our relationship, and we have been living independently for the last few months," Kluth told PEOPLE in a statement. "This was an incredibly difficult decision, but it is one that I believe is best for both of us."
"I will always care about Tinsley and I sincerely wish her happiness and success in all that she does in the future," the statement continued.
Kluth concluded in the statement, "While I understand this news will be of interest to many, I ask for privacy and understanding during this time as I continue to work on recovering emotionally from the end of our relationship."
A source close to the couple told PEOPLE that Mortimer, who starred on seasons 9 through 12 of RHONY, was "blindsided" by the breakup.
"This was not mutual; she was blindsided. She's on the floor heartbroken and devastated. She left everything for him because she didn't think he'd ever call off the engagement," said the insider. "She trusted him that this time was going to be different."
The two met in February 2017, when Mortimer's RHONY castmate Carole Radziwill set them up on a blind date. They were on and off for the next few years before getting engaged in November 2019 on the steps of the Chicago Water Tower in front of Christmas carolers.
Mortimer's rep did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment about the split.
