Filming for the new season begins the last week of August, and the storyline will feature Tinsley's dating ventures — a far cry from last season which was all about her drama with Scott.
The reality star, 43 — who split from her Coupon Cabin CEO boyfriend earlier this year — was caught cozying up to the TV host, 47, at Brooklyn Bowl in NYC on June 1.
“They were bowling in a group, but they looked particularly cozy and affectionate with each other,” one eyewitness told Radar exclusively. “They were super flirty.”
“She looked really happy, which is so nice after all the drama she had with Scott on the show.”
A spokesperson for Tinsley confirmed the outing.
“She was at Brooklyn Bowl on Saturday with a group of friends that included Billy,” the rep told Radar.
As Radar readers know, a fresh start will be good for Tinsley — who fans know has had a rough breakup and a father who was busted for a DUI and other alcohol related offenses before his death in March 2015 at age 65.
“The alcohol itself didn’t kill him. He was drinking a lot, and he ended up falling down stairs and had frontal lobe damage and ended up going into a coma," Tinsley said about her dad in a recent episode.
The Bravo star’s father went into hospice care two weeks later and passed away soon after.
